Week 1 in Year 2

We have had a great week in Year 2 getting to know our classroom and teachers.  Some of us have had the chance to cook and we have all had daily reward time.  Take a look at our whiteboard with some of the wonderful things being said about us.

During daily reading, adults are listening to us read and writing in our diaries so it would be helpful to have these in school everyday.

We have worked on our listening skills to ensure we are achieving our daily goals.  Lots of us have written amazing sentences and produced some super Maths work. All the adults are so proud of everything we have achieved and rewards have been in the form of Team Points, Merits and Extra Play.

Have a great weekend
Year 2 team.

Roman Day in Years III and IV

Today, Years 3 and 4 were visited by Iggy - a real-life Roman soldier! Iggy taught us how the Romans invaded Britain, showed us some games they would have played and took us to the Roman baths where we felt different Roman artefacts which were mostly real! Thankfully, the sponge on a stick was a replica! During the afternoon, Iggy talked us through the Roman army and showed us why they were such a powerful force. We got to practice drills in Latin and had a go at being gladiators at the mercy of the emperor and empress. We had a huge amount of fun and are looking forward to finding out more about the Romans in our history lessons.

Here are some photos we love from our day:

VI trip to Fareham and district Model Railway Club

The children from OASIS, had a wonderful visit to the model railway club.
Our children with VI, were able to ride on electric and steam engines.
They also had the opportunity to touch the engines.
The train drivers and engineers gave of their time for free.
They were enthusiastic and helpful. They made the children's visit really interesting, answering questions, and giving lots of  information about the trains.

The children also had the opportunity to
socialise together.
Two of our amazing pupils are leaving this July.
Both children are passionate about trains.
It was a fitting way to say au revoir!

Listen2Me Summer Concert

For the last time this year, we were treated to an afternoon of musical entertainment on Wednesday.
Mrs Staniforth's musicians kicked us off beautifully on their flutes and recorders.  They played some fantastic pieces and really showed off everything they have been learning.
This was followed by a wonderful concert performed by Year 2 and 4 children.  Year 4 played their ukuleles, while Year 2 played a range of tuned percussion instruments - the metallophone, chime bars, glockenspiel and xylophone.
The children all sang and played brilliantly.  Thank you once again to Mrs Watling for supporting our children to learn the instruments and perform so confidently.
