Look what we have been up to…
On Friday 31st January seven of our Year 2 children attended the Easton Gymnastics Festival. The children had the opportunity to try lots of different gymnastic exercises using a variety of apparatus. Each exercise had a gymnastics coach and some Taverham High School students to teach, guide and demonstrate how to use each piece of apparatus correctly. All the children had an amazing time and demonstrated great sportsmanship, determination, perseverance and strength. Mrs Maskell and I was blown away by the children’s skills and positive attitude to have a go and persevere to achieve each technique and skill. Well done to those children!
Thank you to the parents that came along to give their support, it was great to see so many of you there.

So far this Half term Hedgehog Class have loved learning all about dinosaurs and being explorers. An egg appeared in our classroom, we found a huge dinosaur footprint in the hall. Then once the egg hatched we were keen to build homes and traps for the dinosaur.
Wow what a busy first term at school the children have had! They have got to know their new school, classroom, outdoor area, teachers and made lots of new friends! They have looked at the book The Leaf Man and imagined the many adventures that he might have gone on. They have also created ART in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. In Autumn 2 the children enjoyed our book the Everywhere Bear through role play, writing poetry and retelling the story. This term the children have loved learning about lots of different celebrations such as Halloween, Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day and of course Christmas!
What a busy time we had in Mouse Class this half term! We started the term by talking about Autumn and the book Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper. We made Pumpkin Soup with our friends. Some of us liked it and some of us didn’t.
Then we had a special fireworks day. We made sparklers, put on our gloves, drew fireworks and drank soup by the pretend fire.
We also thought about Remembrance Day and made our own poppies to display in class.
We had great fun on Children In Need day and all joined in with the Big Move with Joe Wicks and Pudsey Bear. Mrs Edwards was very tired afterwards!
We also read the book “The Everywhere Bear” by Julia Donaldson. In the book, the bear travels around the world in lots of different ways. We did lots of work around the book including writing and building. What can you see that we did?
And then to finish the year, we all took part in our fantastic Nativity which was written by Miss Walters. Some of us even had speaking parts. We were brilliant. All of our photos were shared on Tapestry. We are stars!
Year Two recycled plastic bags into fabulous new kites to fly.
Making Christmas decorations using only natural materials with our fantastic parents and carers. We even made our adults a nasty treat of a mince pie each to help start the festive season.
Look at what we have been up to in Fox Class.
