Just a reminder that Year 2 parents evening is on Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd November if you would like to come and make an appointment.
Thank you to everyone who attended our Year 2 performance this morning, the children were amazing. Each class performed an outstanding performance of 'Autumn Time' and 'Autumn is Here'.
Special congratulations to Ella Turner, Jacob Gatens, Grace Maskell and Rhys Mills who performed their own poems in front of the whole audience. Well done!
This half term we have been focussing on following instructions, working together and helping each other. We have done this through parachute games. The children have had a wonderful time listening to each other and we have bonded as a year group.
We had a visit from Alison who works at the Dogs Trust in Darlington. She talked to us about what the charity does and how to care for and handle dogs. The children were able to ask lots of questions and found out lots of interesting facts about dogs.
The Star of the Month in 2G goes to the wonderful Steed Cleary! Steed is an absolute delight to teach, he is always ready to learn and gives his all in every single lesson. He is very conscientious and just gets on with his work, but he is also able to listen to and take on board any advice he is given on how to improve his work. His manners are impeccable and he is always willing to support his peers if they are struggling with anything. Steed has had a fantastic start to Year 2 and I'm sure he will continue to shine throughout the rest year. Well done young man!
September's pupil of the month in 2N goes to Sophie Newman. Sophie has made a fantastic start to the year. She is a responsible and conscientious learner and is always looking at ways to improve her work. She is a wonderful friend and a brilliant help in the classroom. I don't know what I would do without her! Well done Sophie and keep up the amazing work.
The star of the week in 2G went to Jackson Emmerson. He has been amazing in maths with partitioning numbers and adding two digit numbers together and showing the inverse subtraction number sentences. I was so impressed with you, keep it up!
The star of the week in 2N went to Holly Miller for a complete change in attitude to learning. She has really upped her game and worked hard in every lesson. Well done!
This week we've had an Olympic Judo star in to give the children a taster session in Judo. The children had so much fun and looked wonderful in the Judo jackets. They had to try and touch their partners knees, touch their partners back and they had to try and wriggle out of a pin down within 10 seconds.
The star of the week in 2G last week went to Lydia Howe for giving her all in every lesson. She created a beautiful piece of aboriginal art and wrote a description of it then confidently shared it with the class. The star of week in 2N was Aaron McKenna for amazing effort all week and trying really hard. Well done to you both!
This week the children brought in items from home that showed them being healthy. We had some wonderful exercise equipment, trophies and medals brought in and it made a brilliant discussion to our lesson, Thank you! Next week, the children are designing their own fitness drills and will be trialling them on the year 1 children!
Huge well done to last week's stars of the week! Well done to Ella Turner in 2N and Maya Hope in 2G. Our resilience star this week was Blake Bestford.
Writers of the week was also announced and again well done to Ella Turner in 2N and Evie Abbott in 2G for writing amazing character descriptions regarding George's Grandma.
