Father Christmas

Talk for writing text - Film review

For the next three weeks we will be learning about the features of a persuasive review. So far, we have explored alliteration, emotive and persuasive language. We will apply these features when writing our own review about the story 'Father Christmas' by Raymond Briggs

This term in Maths we have been working very hard to become 'masters'. We are gaining lots of confidence in using a wide range of equipment to help us solve some really tricky Maths problems. This term we have explored place value, addition, subtraction, money and multiplication. 


Week beginning 4th December.

In Geography we have been learning about the countries that make up the United Kingdom. We created our own maps of the United Kingdom and added the seas that surround it. We used laptops and a range of information books to research the different countries. We then recorded our presentations to show to the rest of the class. 

Walk of the local area

13th November 2017


As part  of our Geography topic we went on a walk of the local area.  During our walk we created a map of the local area. We placed local landmarks and added road names to our map. We also recorded our route on an i pad and used the footage to help us create a more detailed map back at school. 


Friday 20th October

After researching what local birds might like to eat we all made bird feeders. We used meal worms, peanuts, sunflower seeds and raisins, all in lard, in different feeders and Mrs Pearson took these up to the Eco Park. Today we walked to the Eco Park to see what had been eaten. Our observations informed our conclusions and we had lots of discussion about why some feeders might have been emptier than others, why some feeders had disappeared altogether and what might have taken them.

Year 2 sleepover 

Thursday 19th October 


45 year 2 children had a wonderful time at the sleepover in the school hall. We enjoyed eating tea, watching a movie and a night time walk with torches. 

Reading morning and Bake sale

On Wednesday we had lots of parents join us to read and buy our scrumptious flapjacks. We packed our flapjacks in the packaging we created during our Design and Technology lessons. We raised lots of money for our charity UNICEF. Thank you to all the parents who participated in all our activities and helped us raise money for our charity.

Parent workshop

On Monday 9th October we had parents come in and help us to bake flapjacks and create our packaging for them. We are raising money for our charity UNICEF. UNICEF is a charity that  supports innovative programmes that give the most vulnerable children the chance to learn.


Thank you to all the parents for coming in and helping us.

Art day

We have had a lovely day during Art day. We have been producing art work inspired by Arcimboldo Giuseppe, painting different fruits and vegetables to create a collage for our school display. Please come and see our display in the school hall.


In Neptune we are now learning how to write a set of instructions. Below you will find our new talk 4 writing map. Please learn this at home.


Well done to the children of Neptune for their wonderful class assembly on healthy eating. I think you will agree the children did a fantastic job!

Can you remember the five different food groups?

This week in Neptune we have been learning an adventure story.  It is called 'The Unstoppable Maggie Magee'. Here is our story map, please practise this at home.


Roald Dahl Day


Welcome to a brand new year 

Our topic this term is Aiming High. 

We started off the school year with a fantastic art day. 

We explored the work of Carol Thompson and created our own art worked based around kites. 

We used chalk pastels to create our background, learning about colour, contrast, blending and shading. 

We then created our block colour kites in the foreground.
