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.

Tri Golf competition

Ten children from Year 3 and 4 were chosen to take part in a School Games Level 2 Tri Golf competition at Worcester Golf Range. There were six other schools there from across the Droitwich and Worcester area who had all won smaller competitions.

The children had to complete six different activities and then all the scores were added up. And we came second, narrowly missing out on first place! What an achievement for such a small school! The children were amazing and used all the skills they had learnt in their golf lessons this year. Well done! Mrs Hobbs was very proud of you all. 

Key Stage 2 Cricket

The Key Stage 2 children have enjoyed working on their cricket skills this half term, with a coach from Worcestershire County Cricket Club.

In the final session there was a house Cricket competition. It was great fun and all the children enjoyed it.

Warwick Castle

We had a fantastic day at Warwick Castle. We started the day down in the dungeon before we made our way to find out how to make a King. We loved looking at the wax models but the moving horse made us jump a bit. After we had learnt how to become king we made our way to find Princess Millie who told us a story all about a brave knight and a fierce dragon. She told us all about how knights had a shield to protect them and how the designs showed off our family name. We designed our own shields which, when we get back to school, we will turn into real wooden ones. Leaving the princess we made our way to the Falconers Quest where we met Hobby who dreamed of becoming the head falconer at Warwick. He introduced us to some of his birds in an epic show. We saw owls, eagles, hawks, falcons and a condor. They flew so close to our heads it took our breath away. We loved the finale where over 70 birds took to the sky above us swooping and diving all around. We then moved to explore the inside of the castle and met Daisy who lived at Warwick many years ago. When we came out we were very lucky to get the chance to hold a real sword but Mr Postans and Mrs Moore were less impressed when they got their heads chopped off. We ended our fantastic day racing through time in the Horrible Histories maze collecting our time stamps along the way, However Mrs Pittaway and Miss Ballard got a little lost.
We had a fantastic day at Warwick and the children were all exceptionally well behaved.

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!

Easter

We had lot of fun in Easter week, the Friends organised a lovely egg hunt for us which was lots of fun. We learnt all about the Easter story and made stained glass windows. We performed in church after we had walked down in our Easter bonnets which looked fantastic. Well done Year 1 and have a lovely Easter break.

Church Art

We went to church this week to practice our Easter service. After the rehearsal we stayed at church to have a go at sketching the church tower. Our skills have improved over the year and we produced some lovely pieces of work.

Wild Things Day

This term our topic has been adventure and we have been looking at the book “Where The Wild Things Are”. We decided to have a Wild Things Day in the forest and Mrs Moore kindly planned it all for us. We started the day retelling the story and then got into groups to build the story. It was so much fun. We then went around exploring each other’s zones before we had lots and lots of fun in the mud (Happened to be the wettest day of the month) We made mud pies and even made a mud slide, We got very very muddy but had an awesome time.

Book Week

This year’s book week was all based on Poetry. Mrs Jordan gave us a poem by AA Milne called Tails. We got to know the poem very well and added actions and instruments to make it even more exciting. We were so happy we could perform this to our parents. During book week our families came in to share a story with us and we got to wear our PJs for the day.
