As you will know, last week was the KS1 Christmas production of 'Santa's Setbacks'. The children worked so hard to prepare for the performances and I'm sure you will agree that they did themselves proud. There was amazing singing, fantastic acting, great comedic timing and lots of loud speaking voices! Here are some photos of the brilliant cast.
It's that time of year again!
Since the start of this half term, Year 2 have been very busy preparing for this year's KS1 Christmas production, Santa's Setbacks. They have learnt lots of songs and made up their own actions to go with them. They have also been helping Year 1 and Reception learn the words and actions to the songs.
As well as this, they have been working hard on stage, knowing where to stand and remembering their lines. Year 2 children are also are in charge of the music, the lights and the props for the production, so they have been practising making these elements as seamless as possible!
With just a week to go until the performances, the children are getting really excited about showing you what we have been working on. We hope you will thoroughly enjoy it!
On Thursday 28th September we visited Hedingham Castle to learn all about what life in a castle would have been like. The children took part in a variety of activities throughout the day, including: a jousting competition, exploring medieval medicine, meeting the Lady of the castle, learning about weapons and armour and they even got to see Sam the archer using his bow and arrows.
The children and adults had a fantastic day, and as always the children were a credit to the school. Well done Year 2!
On Friday afternoon, both classes investigated the properties of four different materials. They tested the suitability of clay, plasticine, salt dough and play dough for making their gargoyle sculptures, before recording their findings and choosing their favourite. They had a brilliant time and managed not to get too messy!
The children have had a great start to the new school year and have settled in well to Year 2. As an introduction to our topic of 'Dungeons and Dragons', both classes have been working hard to create an impressive dragon display for their classrooms. We have also been reading 'Shrek' and the children have enjoyed acting out some of the scenes.
Here are some photos of the children colouring the dragons and making the scales.
