Year 2 2018-19

Sports Day 2019

What another great Sports Day! The sun shone, the house gazebos were set up and everything was ready.

The Year 4 house captains led their houses in a mass school warm up, to start the proceedings.

There then followed running , skipping, sack, egg and spoon, beanbag and dressing up races for each of the year groups. It was great fun and very competitive.

The final races for the children were the House relay and Key Stage 2 Ombersley Marathon.

While the scores were added up our young visitors had a running race and the Mums and Dads were persuaded to do the sack race, by their children.

Finally the results were announced and Ruby house won. Well done to Ruby house, everyone who competed and all the parents who came and supported and cheered. It was a lovely morning made even better by our DJ from Kings Hawford school. Thank you. 

Cluster Sports

Ombersley had a very successful morning at the Cluster Sports 2019 taking part in different events against Hindlip First school and Tibberton First school. After a morning of exciting races all the scores were added up and Ombersley came first!

Well done to all the children who took part in events throughout the morning. There was some great support too from all the children. 

Cluster Sports 2019

What an exciting morning we had at Cluster Sports. And the sun shone all morning.

We took part in running, egg and spoon, sack and potato races and when all the scores were added up at the end Ombersley won! Well done to all the children who took part in the races and to all the children who supported and cheered everyone on.

We are looking forward to our whole school Sports day next Friday.

Flower and Music festival

The Year 2 children sang beautifully on Thursday afternoon, at St. Andrew’s Church, in the Flower and Music festival. They sang songs with a flower and garden theme and then listened to Sytchampton Primary school perform their songs too.

Afterwards we joined together to sing ‘He’s got the whole world in his hands’. Finally we walked around the church and looked at the beautiful flower arrangements, particularly the ones by the children of Ombersley First school! 

Pizza Express

The Year 2 children had a great time Pizza Express.

We tasted lots of different toppings – some were nicer than others! Then we learnt how to roll out the dough. Some of us even tried throwing it in the air! Finally we made our own Maghereta pizza which was cooked in the pizza oven so that we could bring them back to school.

When we tried a slice in the afternoon, at school, we all agreed they were delicious! Thank you Pizza Express. We loved it. 

Cooking in Year 2

We are all loving the Muffins that we are cooking this term! Mmmmmm!

Festival of Flowers and Music

As part of the Festival of Flowers and Music, which will be taking place in St. Andrew’s Church, Ombersley from June 28th to July 5th, some of the children were chosen to take part in a flower arranging workshop.

Mrs Packer came and showed the children how to make two flower arrangements. We were very impressed with her flower arranging skills!

Hopefully, some of the children will have a go at making one of these arrangements so that we can display them in the church during the festival. We are going to be singing there too.

Den Building

Mr Postans and Mrs Moore joined together to take Year 1 & 2 out in the forest for a very special afternoon. They were set the task to design and build a camp for a knight who was out on a special mission. The children worked amazingly hard completely across the year groups to create a spectacular knights camp. The children showed amazing teamwork, problem solving, communication and most of all a love of learning. It was so lovely to walk around the forest and listen to all the conversations being had by the children with years 1 & 2 both actively engaged with some children saying “This was the best lesson we have ever had” We can’t wait for our next joint session.

Summer term 2019

What a busy two weeks we have had!

We have received some very strange emails with pictures of monsters, We found out these belonged to George, a small inventor and had been created by a Monster machine! We have really enjoyed sharing the story and have done some lovely work about it which can be seen on our display.

We have enjoyed our first two swimming  and Tri golf lessons and we have been very busy doing our quizzes too!

Jump Rope competition

What a great time the skipping club had at their first ever Jump Rope School Championships!

The children had been well trained by their coach Stacie and took part in 30 second speed, 30 second crosses, 30 second jumping, 30 second double dutch speed, long rope challenge and at the very end performed a whole school skipping routine. All the children were amazing and thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.

Finally at the end of the day medals were awarded to all the winners. Ombersley won an amazing 4, 1st place medals and 5, 3rd place medals and that didn’t include the two won by Mrs Hills! Congratulations to everyone.

 

Book Week in Year 2

We loved Book Week!

The theme for this year’s Book Week, at Ombersley,  was Performance Poetry and our poem was The Owl and the Pussycat. We have learnt it off by heart and done lots of lovely activities to do with the poem. We have even had a go at writing our poems, which we are looking forward to sharing with you in our Class assembly.

On Monday our parents came to share a story with us, on Tuesday we brought a book to school to swap and on Thursday, World Book day, we came to school in our PJs and slippers with our teddies and our favourite book to share with children from another class. We loved this, especially the hot chocolate and Marshmallows that we had later. And on Friday we bought our competition entries into school for a ‘Design a Poetry chair’competition. Well done Harvey and Finley who were the Key Stage 1 winners. We can’t wait to see what the chair will look like.
