Today, children from Year 2, performed in an annual music concert at Sutton Town Hall. Children sang for a sold out crowd! The first choir sang songs from the musicals and the second choir performed a piece entitled 'The Toyshop'. All the children sang beautifully and behaved well back stage. Well done Year 2!

This week, as part of our science topic 'Rocks and Soils', we made our very own fossils! Fossils are the remains of dead animals or plants which have been preserved in the soil by natural processes. We enjoyed going to the art room and using clay to create our own ammonite fossils.

Everyone is very much enjoying their Spanish lessons at the moment. So much so that some pupils want to carry on with the activities at home. Therefore, here are some links that you might like to investigate:
Year 3 have enjoyed colour mixing with El juego de los colores.
Year 4 have enjoyed singing Los meses del año.
Year 2 have been pretending to go to the fruit shop and enjoy dancing along to El baile de las frutas.
And Year 6 have been using their paper folding skills as well as their linguistic skills; more of that in a later post!

Year 2 are thoroughly enjoying their new Science topic 'Rocks and Soils'. We have thought about what rocks are and what they are used for. We went outside and collected different rocks and then sorted them into different groups. We thought about texture (size, shape, arrangement of particles) and appearance (colours).

In Maths this week we have been looking at fractions. We found out that the number at the bottom (denominator) shows the number of parts altogether and the number at the top (numerator) shows how many parts you have. We focussed on finding half of numbers and used the Numicon to help us. We had great fun! If you would like to play a fraction game at home please [click here].

We have really enjoyed hearing about all of the things you got up to in the holiday today. 2015 is going to be a busy year for year 2 with SATs tests to sit in May. We have got lots of lovely things coming up at school over the next few weeks and months, starting with our brand ne topic 'Poles Apart!'. Children will have brought home a booklet to share at home showing all the things that they will be learning.

A huge well done to all the KS1 children for their performance of 'Born in a Barn'. What an amazing production!
Year 2 have been busy preparing cards and calendars ready to bring home. They all had great fun on Tuesday at the Christmas parties. Many thanks to the PTA for providing the disco. We even had a special visitor!
Thank you to all the children for their hard work this term and also to parents for your support at home. We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

This week Year 2 have enjoyed planting their Marie Curie Pots of care. We had to fill the pot with soil and carefully plant the daffodil bulb in the middle. Children will have brought the pots home on Friday. Remember to look after them and care for them and then in the Spring you should have a beautiful daffodil flower!
For more information on the Marie Curie Pots of care please [click here].
