Year 2 take part in the Multiskills event

Year 2 were very sporty at the multi skills event we went to at Billesley Tennis Centre. We got to take part in lots of different activities that showed off our skills. We had to score goals, balance a tennis ball, throw a ball to hit the cricket wickets, balance across a beam, throw bean bags onto a target and much more. We were very pleased with ourselves when we got the best score of the day for some of the games! It was lots of fun and we came back to school happy and a little bit hungry!!

Building a book

Wow! We have just had the most fantastic day! We had a visit from a real author,​ Rob Bowden. Rob has worked with Year 2 today to help us create our own book pages about the Great Fire of London. We worked in groups and used books and the internet to find out as much as we could about the Great Fire of London. As you can see in the photo, we made lots of notes about the interesting facts and information we discovered. Then we had the tricky job of deciding what our title and subheadings would be and the information, pictures and facts we should include. Rob helped us to design the layout of our pages and used some of our Great Fire of London paintings as a background. We were so impressed when we saw our work at the end of the day and we think you’ll be super impressed too! Watch this space for the finished product!!
