In English we have been learning all about postcards. The children began by looking at the features of a postcard and why we have them. Once they were sure what a postcard needed to include they started to plan their own. Our postcards however had a twist, because they were being sent from space! The children came up with some fantastic ideas about what they had seen and been doing on their space adventure including almost being dragged into a black hole and seeing the magical, colourful stars across the galaxy! They remembered to include Earth in their addresses to make sure they reached the right planet and enjoyed being able to use their imaginations to explore the solar system.
Year 2 have been enjoying getting into the festive Christmas spirit and have completed a number of fun-filled activities. The children took part in the school’s Santa Dash in which they enthusiastically ran as fast as they could dressed up in their Christmas outfits. Following this, they completed the PTFA sponsored selection box slide in which some children were wildly enthusiastic about sliding a coin across the room and seemed determined to injure Miss Dennis! Next up the children went to All Saints at The Beacon and showed off their beautiful singing voices. They also represented Warren well with their impeccable manners and wonderful behaviour. T The children have also recorded some Christmas singing for you to enjoy which has been uploaded to Teams.
Year 2 children went on a school trip to Vue Cinema, Lakeside to watch the film Abominable. For some children this was their first school outing ever and for others it was the first since the autumn term of Reception. All children were impeccably behaved on the day and did themselves and Warren as a school proud. We were fortunate enough to have the whole cinema room to ourselves and of course enjoyed our snacks whilst watching! The children will be using the plot of the film to aid their English work.
The children have been learning all about the tragic events of the Great Fire of London in 1666. They began the topic by baking bread just like Thomas Farriner ( though without any major disasters like Thomas thankfully!). They followed the instructions closely and produced perfect bread rolls to be proud of!
