Year 2 Great Fire of London Celebration Day
On Tuesday, Year 2 had a fantastic first celebration day of the year.
The day was packed with exciting activities linked to their topic ‘The Great Fire of London’. Particular highlights included: becoming bakers and making bread rolls, which we have since been told were delicious! Making beautiful lanterns, which represent the historic event and look great against the flamed window back-drop.
As well as a drama session; where the children were superb at getting into character to act out the key events. We finished the day by learning the song London’s burning, which we sang in a round.
Here are some pictures:
World Mental Health Day!
Yesterday the children took part in ‘World Mental Health Day’ where we revisited our 5 ways to Wellbeing.
All of our children took part in many different and fun activities, such as yoga and tai chi to ‘keep active’, origami and scooby do bands to ‘keep
learning’, writing kindness cards to ‘connect’ and share with our friends, and making bird feeders to ‘give’ something back to nature!
It was a fantastic day and the children and staff had a wonderful time. Thank you for all your fantastic donations that will go towards the YOUNGMINDS charity to support children with mental health issues.

Ahoy me hearties! Year R had an amazing pirate celebration day where they performed their own pirate fashion show! They even created telescopes to look for the buried treasure using their fine motor and joining skills and made their very own pet parrots!
They had so much fun learning how to dance and sing like a pirate, arrrrr! After all this, they had to walk the plank…shiver me timbers! To finish our celebration day we munched on a delicious pirate snack, mmmmm!
