Hello everyone,

In each star below you will find homework that has been set by your teachers. You can complete this in the blank yellow text book we gave you last week. If you haven't yet received your book, please feel free to collect one from the office. Remember, try to do a little bit of reading, writing and maths everyday but don't forget the creative activities too. Make sure you enjoy the sunshine when you can and try to keep active. Play board games, draw, make cards, do jigsaws, play in the garden and above all keep smiling!

School without you guys is going to be very strange and we are going to miss your mischievous faces everyday.

Take care and stay safe, 

Mrs Coates and the 2/3 team xx

Chalk Drawings

The children enjoyed creating some fun and exciting drawings all over the playground!

Cards for Keyworkers

We had a lovely afternoon using our Literacy skills to produce an Acrostic poem dedicated to our hard working mums and dads.

Have a look at our finished cards!

DT Day - Cave boy/girl catwalk 


We have decided to spend the last day of our current topic designing an outfit for a cave boy/girl. Each class is competing against each other to produce an outfit, tool and accessory. On top of this, the model will have to walk the catwalk this afternoon showing off their designs to a chosen backing track.  We have also wrote scripts to describe our outfits. As you can see we are having a lot of fun and working together as a team. The staff are also having fun and getting stuck in. We will upload pictures later of our finished products and catwalk. 

The Wild Girl

What an interesting first week back from Half term we've had!  In the courtyard, we saw a girl and she had a real life dog! We didn't know who she was, why she was here or where she came from. Her clothes were made from animal fur and she was holding a spear. We guessed she was from the Stone Age.

She came to our classrooms and we asked her lots of questions. Suprisingly, she doesn't know her name or her age! She told us that she lives in the mountains and she came to our school looking for food. 
The next day, she left us all a gift - a book called, "The Wild Girl". We've been reading the story in Literacy and we think the story is about her!

Sticks, Stones and Bones!


We have had such an exciting first couple of weeks into the Spring Term. The children have been hooked into the topic throughout our experience days which consisted of sweetie fire building, real fire making, preparing, cooking and eating fruit stew and drawing cave paintings using our hands and natural materials!

We will continue to look at the history of Stone Age people, the materials they used for weapons and tools, extinct creatures and much more!

Take a look at some of the photos from the experience days:

Mary Poppins!

The children performed FANTASTICALLY for our production of Mary Poppins. Every single child had a huge smile on their face when they danced, sung and acted. This year was a record breaking year for the number of compliments we had - so many parents and staff congratulated the children saying that it was the best production they have seen! A very well done to all the children and staff involved in the rehearsals and performances.


Take a look at some of the lovely photographs from the shows:

London Transport Museum

We had a fantastic two days visiting London Transport Museum. Have a look at some of our photos. 

National Poetry Day!

The children were lucky enough to welcome the poet Coral Rumble to school. All week, they have learned the poem "The Very Worried Lunchbox" and were so excited and proud to recite Coral's poem back to her! Some of the children even wrote their own poems for National Poetry Day and enjoyed sharing these with their friends.

There was a mess!

When we came to school, there was a huge mess in the courtyard, corridors and our classrooms! We all believed it to be that clumsy bear, Paddington. In his letter, he asked us to help him write some instructions as he was not too sure how to bake.

Year 2 SATs meeting 


Thank you to all Year 2 parents who attended our Year 2 SATs meeting on Wednesday 25th September. Please find a copy of the presentation below. 

We had a Visitor!

Mr Brown came all the way from London to talk to the children all about a 3ft 6 bear causing mayhem around England. He spoke about the chaos that this bear had been making, and even spotted one of our Wanted Posters in Aylesbury train station! We listened to his stories of Paddington bear, his family and we all agreed to help him find Paddington by writing an amazing description of him.

Welcome Back!

We hope you’ve all had a fun filled Summer holiday, and are ready for an action packed term!

Take a look at the department photographs to see if you can work out what we will learn throughout the term.
