Year 2 had an excellent trip to Paulton's Park to end their topic this term. The children will use this experience in Geography where they will be creating a map of the best route around the park. Here are some photos of our day there.

Last week Year 2 had a visit from Crazy Creatures. They had an exciting morning learning facts about different animals. They all had the opportunity to hold and touch the different animals and some were very brave and held a snake! 🐍

Yr2 didn't let the weather ruin their visit from the fire service. They had fun exploring the fire engine & learned about fire safety.

Year 2 shared the stories that they had created this term based upon the well- known Julia Donaldson book ‘The Baddies’ with year 6. The children designed and created the front cover using purple mash, illustrated the pictures inspired by Axel Scheffler. Their books have been sent to Rossmore library for you to collect and then keep at home. They will be available to be collected by you anytime over the half term holidays. The children have really enjoyed this topic and are so excited for you to see their finished books. The year 2 team are incredibly proud of their hard work as authors and illustrators this half term!

'Do it like Donaldson' quiz

Year 6 wrote their own versions of Little Red Riding Hood and made them into books. They then read their stories to the children in Year 2, who thoroughly enjoyed them! There are some great benefits of reading aloud, such as, building vocabulary, improves comprehension & active listening, strengthens fluency, reduces stress & makes us happy!

Year 2 had an excellent time at Rossmore Library. The librarian read them a well-known story ' The Gruffalo' using some puppets. Then, the children had a scavenger hunt around the library where, they had to find pictures of Julia Donaldson's front covers. Finally, they had time to find and read through books of their choice. Overall, the children had a lovely day visiting their local library and are excited to become authors themselves this term. Thank you to the grown ups who helped make this trip possible!
