Anti-Bullying Week

On Monday we had Holly and Cookie from BUFC come and present us an assembly on Anti-Bullying, reminding the children what bullying looks like and what they are to do if they think it is happening to them. 


Their given challenge was for the children to all do or say 'one kind thing' everyday this week, so below are 40 Acts of Kindness that your child may wish to use.

Firework Poems

Here are some of our firework poems. We worked as a class to build up adjectives to describe bonfire night through our senses. We then worked in pairs to create firework poems describing what we could see, hear and smell. We also learnt what an expanded noun phrase is!!

💥 Bright Day 💥

Today the Year 2’s dressed up in bright clothing and learnt about the safety of when being around fireworks and bonfires. They made their own rockets, created firework paintings as well as completing lots of other firework related activities.

It was wonderful seeing lots of you from Badger class at the PFA Halloween Disco this evening. Thank you parents for bringing them and making a great effort towards their costumes!

#HelloYellow Day!

Harvest Festival
Together in RE with Mrs Stevenson and Mrs Orrey, the Year 2 children discussed what Harvest Festival is and why we celebrate it. Then Mrs Freeston spoke with the children about flower arranging as well as giving the opportunity to all the children to have a go at arranging a flower themselves. It was a lovely experience for all of Year 2 to celebrate Harvest together.

Art: Material Experimenting

To begin our unit of art today the children had the opportunity to experiment different ways to change the texture of paper. For example: Twisting a single piece of paper, folding together two/three pieces of paper, creating curls etc. From the photos below you can see what a fabulous job they did!!

& for our art lesson this week, we have continued experimenting different ways to display materials. This week we have used a variety of donated fabrics. Creating different textures and patterns. 

Good evening,

Following the meeting for the Rand Farm residential trip we would just like to let you know that there are only a few places left for those who wish to attend the residential trip.  If you would still like your child to attend please can you complete the deposit payment by the end of this week, thank you. The balance of the trip will not be due until the end of January. 

Thank you,

PE for our class is on a Thursday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor, weather permitting). Please ensure that your child's PE kit is in school each week for these sessions. Your child will need appropriate clothing and footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE.
