Christmas in Year 2

After all the snow, our Christmas festivities got off to a lovely start with a visit to the Cotswold Animal farm. We looked at all the animals, went on a tractor ride and got to meet Father Christmas too. We were very excited! Have a look at our photographs.  

We had a great Christmas party and sang beautifully in the school nativity, in St. Andrew’s Church. What a busy end of term it was!

We hope you like the children’s cards and calendars and thank you all  your lovely gifts. Enjoy the rest and see you in the New Year!

Maths Week 2017

Number day

Last week it was Maths Week and what great fun it was!

We shared the story, The Doorbell Rang on Monday, and did lots of Mathematical problems to do with the story, throughout the week.

We shared cakes, iced biscuits, divided pizzas into quarters and eighths, then ate them! We even sorted socks into odds and evens!

On Thursday our parents came to share some Maths games with us. We loved that!

And finally, on Friday, we came to school as a number and had a whole school house challenge. Which house could make the longest paper chain with a repeating pattern, using only one sheet of A4 paper each.

Cluster Carols

Key stage One and Two had a wonderful afternoon singing carols and telling the Christmas story with Tibberton and Hindlip schools.

It was a lovely start to the festive season. The children all sang  and behaved beautifully ~ making their teachers very proud.

We all arrived at school dressed as Super heroes ready to meet Pudesy. We had been collecting coins in our bucket for the last few weeks and we were very excited to give these to him.

Sketching Houses in Ombersley

The children had a lovely morning walking around Ombersley looking at the Fire marks on the houses and making detailed sketches of the Tudor houses. 

Visit to Droitwich Fire Station

After finding out all about how fires were put out in The Great Fire of London, we wanted to find out how it is done today. So that’s what we did! We had a lovely morning at Droitwich Fire Station.Fire station class

It was very exciting looking around the fire engine and getting inside the cab. We also tried using lots of their equipment. But the best bits were watching the firemen in action and squirting the hose! 

Happy Hallowe’en!

The Year 2 children went to St. Peter’s First school on Thursday to take part in a Multi Skills festival with other Year 2 children from the Droitwich School’s pyramid.

They had a great morning taking part in Sack, Rugby Run, Sprint, Hurdles and Skipping races. There was an even a Space Hopper race!

The children had great fun, showed excellent team work and behaved beautifully. Ombersley came second! Well done children. Mrs Hobbs was very proud of you.

Class treat

The children have worked so hard this half term and earned all their marbles in the car. After a class vote, the children chose to watch a movie in their PJs with their favourite cuddly toy. There was even ice cream and sprinkles in the interval!

Well done Year 2. Mrs Hobbs and Mrs Jordan are very proud of you!

Investigating Materials

In Science we have loved looking at different materials and investigating their properties. 

Forest School

This half term, we have enjoyed Forest School on Thursday afternoons, with Mrs Mansfield and Mrs Hills.

We have done bark and leaf rubbings, created pictures using natural materials and enjoyed investigating the forest!
