Year 2 begins…..

A huge well done to all the children in Year 2 for their brilliant attitude and enthusiasm this week.  They have settled in really well and we look forward to working with them this year.  

If you haven’t already, please can you remember to make sure your child has the correct named PE kit including PE shoes.  

You will notice that your child brought home a reading book and journal this week.  Journals need to be in on a Monday with three or more signed entries so your child can earn their ‘Read to Succeed’ ticket.

Thank you for your support in settling your child this week.  

A very furry, messy couple of weeks!

The children have been having so much fun. Last Friday, they all dressed up for Furry Friday and it was great to see the variety of costumes and cuddly friends coming into school! The children spent the morning with their furry friends, taking part in lots of different sporting activities on the field and generally enjoying the beautiful weather.

This week, it has been Art Week and Year 2 were given the country of England to represent. We chose to look at Banksy and graffiti art. The children had fun looking at the shadow and light in their faces and drawing their portraits, Banksy style. When they had completed that, they were able to have a go at designing their very own Tag to put on their artwork. They then had a go at using self-made stencils to create their own piece of art.

Some children got to go out to the playground and draw their Tags with chalk!

The last two weeks of term will be very busy and the children will need their PE kits in school please, so that they can take part in all the activities we have planned!

Please can any outstanding library books be returned to your class teacher as soon as possible. Thank you.

Have a great weekend!

Zoo-per Zoologists!!

Although  it was a wet and rainy start, Year 2 had an amazing time at Paignton Zoo! When we arrived, we realised that the weather had put most other people off and we had the entire complex to ourselves! The children were able to see many of the animals. The giraffes were out in force, munching on their juicy branches and the elephant was leaning, cross-legged on the fence, eating hay.

The children all attended an ‘Adaptations Workshop’, where they learned how certain animals were suited to living in their habitats. They found this very interesting and were able to ask questions and feel animal skins, shells and bones!


We romped through Crocodile Swamp, swung through Monkey Heights and swayed through the blowy grasslands. All in all, a fantastic day. A huge THANK YOU to all the parent helpers who made the day run smoothly and added to the fun!
