We have had a very successful start to the Autumn term and the children have settled in well to their new classes; getting to know their new teachers, class mates and Year 2 routines.
We were fortunate to have the most glorious weather for our school trip to Painshill Park. The children loved building dens and seeing if their dens were waterproof enough to withstand a bucket of water being tipped over them! They also loved going on a treasure hunt around the park; especially exploring the grotto with real Amethyst crystals inside. However, the highlight was finding the treasure of bouncy balls at the end of the trail!
We have particularly enjoyed exploring our Power of Reading text and the varied learning opportunities that we have planned to support this. This has included creating and performing poetry as a group and collecting Autumn leaves to create our Autumn art display.
We are looking forward to the space dome (mini planetarium) arriving just before half term to launch our focus on Space for the second half of term.
