Summer 2 - Week 1 - Multicultural Week

Multicultural dressing up Day

At the end of our special multicultural week we all dressed up as animals from different countries, or in the colours of a flag or national costumes. Reception and Year 2 entertained us with native songs from Kenya and Year 1 told us all about Australian animals. Class Klee also had a pretend flight from London Gatwick to Jomo Kenyatta (international City Airport in Nairobi, Kenya). It was a wonderful end to an exciting, informative and diverse / cultural week!

RNLI Charity

Once again this year, we supported the Lifeboat crews, who save thousands of lives every year.

We flew the RNLI flag throughout May and together we raised just over £75 for 'Mayday', so thank you everyone!

Just before half term, a representative (Terry Smith) gave us a presentation, showing live footage of rescuces and the equipment that they use. Miss Lewis even dressed up as a lifeguard, to the delight of all!

Year 6 from Burnt Oak had joined us for the morning and participated in this event.

Dance, dance round and round, let your feet skip over the ground.

Summer 1 - Year 2 have been busy with their Home Learning.

Look at these amazing Tudor and Stuart houses. Go to our YEAR 2 page to see more houses.

Year 2 have been working so hard to improve their writing. They have written amazing pieces of work based upon the Great Fire of London. These include: Diary entry, Newspaper report and descriptive writing using figurative language (personification, alliteration, similes, metaphors and expanded noun phrases).

Our Daffodils !
