Y2: Gallery


Date: 11th Feb 2022 @ 12:08pm

As part of our PSHRE topic this half term Year 2 have been learning about spending and saving money.  

As part of our topic we had to raise money for a charity and held a class ballot to decide how we would do this.  Oxfam was the chosen charity that received the most votes and the children decided that they would like a hold a cake sale. 

A MASSIVE THANK YOU to all of the Year 2 parents who donated cakes for this good cause and to all of the classes for buying cakes and helping Year 2 to raise funds. 

The children counted the money and they raised an AMAZING £81.55! Thank you so much! 


Year 5 Football Tournament

Date: 9th Feb 2022 @ 5:09pm

Year 5 Football Tournament 

Today, year 5 and two pupils from year 4 participated in a football tournament. The children were respectful, showed good sportsmanship, manners and displayed plenty of footballing talent. After only losing one match in the group stages, we progressed to the semi-finals. We won the semi-final match after a fantastic goal from Nathan. Unfortunately, the final didn't go the same way and the children finished in second place! However, the children should be so proud of themselves after a fantastic effort all afternoon. 

Coming second out of sixteen other schools is something to be extremely proud of!

Read Aloud Day

Date: 2nd Feb 2022 @ 6:58pm

Today is World Read Aloud Day! We read our guided reading texts aloud and watched a news report about a six year old girl from Liverpool who has had her own story book published.  We enjoyed listening to her read an extract of her story 'Destiny and the Troll' 

At story time we enjoyed listening to a story being read by one of our class mates!  

In our history lesson a reading leader was chosen for each group.  We had to listen to the statements as our reading leader read them aloud, then we worked together to decide if the statements were true or false.  We found out lots of interesting facts about George Stephenson by reading all about him and his great invention 'The Rocket'.

Evie and Rosie in Key Stage 1 were excited to take home our TRENDING BOOK today - 'The Dragon with the Blazing Bottom' by Tom Fletcher. 

We can't wait to get dressed up for World Book Day that we will be celebrating on Friday 4th March.
