Please continue to practise reading and spelling some of the Year 1 and 2 common exception words. It would also be beneficial to continue to practise their number bonds to 10, 20, and 100 too. The children still have access to Numbots online (passwords given in Year 1). If you have misplaced these, please email the office.
Have a lovely half term!

Project Homework Showcase
In the final week of the half term, Year 2 put on a Project Homework Showcase! Below are some of their amazing pieces of homework that they created! There are....houses made of food, fairy and elf homes, paintings of their own houses, letters to the three little pigs, photos of trips to London, checklists of material scavenger hunts and many many other fantastic examples of homework! During the showcase, they had a visit from Mrs Roberts too who was also incredibly impressed with the hard work that had been put into their work! They should be very proud!
The Trip to Waddesdon Manor
During the trip to Waddesdon Manor, the class enjoyed planting their King Albert daffodil bulbs in the Manor's Daffodil Valley. They all got very muddy and found lots of worms and slugs! They also planted Jumbley Bell daffodils and Quebec Tulips in pots with the help of Sarah. In the afternoon, they learnt about the history of the tulip and where the flower originated from. Whilst in the Stables, the pupils created their own paper daffodil to take home. We will be visiting the manor again in the Summer term to see how much their daffodils have grown and visit the tulip festival!
During our History week, the class learnt about famous black athletes from the past and present. The pupils then participated in a mini-Olympic games and created statues of the athletes using aluminium foil.
St Paul's Cathedral
This half term, the pupils have been learning about the Great Fire of London in their History lessons. The pupils learnt that the original St Paul's Cathedral burnt down in the fire and learnt that the architect Christopher Wren designed the cathedral that stands in London today. The pupils designed and built their own versions of St Paul's Cathedral during a DT lesson.
The pupils have been busy learning about the value of number and learning to add and subtract.
