Spring Term 2

Week 4

Happy World Downs Syndrome Day!

This Thursday, Class 2 wore odd socks in order to celebrate World Downs Syndrome Day and we also, had a very special visitor who taught us some makaton as we learnt that makaton can help us to communicate with others if they struggle to understand just our words, we can use our words and actions too!


As a class, we watched a video which taught us about downs syndrome and how children or people with it might just take a little bit longer to learn than us but, they still have the same emotions and have just as much fun as us!


Class 2 learnt some more songs in makaton like 'The Wheels on the Bus' and 'You've Got a Friend in Me!' and then, we learnt the alphabet. It was quite tricky but, Class 2 really concentrated and did so well. Some children even managed to remember the actions and sign their name in makaton. 


Fantastic listening and work this week Class 2!


Week 3

On Thursday 14th March Class 2 took part in a sponsored run with James Dasaolu when he visited our school. James Dasaolu is a 100m sprinter and competed against Usain Bolt in the 2012 Olympic Heats and so, everyone was very excited for our sponsored event with him. 


James did an activity session with each class, introduced himself and gave us lots of information and advice in his assembly. Everyone in Class 2 took part in our sponsored run and did a fantastic job.

Well done Class 2!

Week 2

World Book Day in Class 2 was such a fantastic day for all of us.


We really enjoyed guessing the characters everyone came to school as by giving each other clues and acting as them. 


Class 2, also, produced some wonderful character descriptions on the character they were dressed as.


The children greatly enjoyed sharing the books they brought in with their classmates and to complete the day, we had so much fun completing a quiz on all things books. Some of the questions were very tricky but, one of our groups got a fantastic high score on our quiz!


Thank you to everyone in Class 2 for taking on the roles of their characters so well today, for showing their love of books and for dressing to impress. Thank you to parents for all of the effort you made too. 


What a wonderful World Book Day!

Week 1

Learning to Samba with City Limits Dance Teachers

On Monday afternoon, Class 2 flamboyantly and beautifully showed the samba skills that they gained during the day to their parents. 


City Limits dance teachers came in to teach us our very own samba-inspired routine and we also learnt some cha-cha-cha. As well as learning routines we did lots of dancing and games for fun.


We practised and practised our samba routine to perform it to our parents and perfect the dance as our topic is called Rio De Vida and in Brazilian carnivals the samba is often danced. 


Class 2 worked so hard and performed a beautiful routine as well as having lots of fun and developing their dancing skills. 


Well done Class 2!

This Thursday, Class 2 took part in a Multiskills Competition with our Active Fusion teachers and Class 5 team leaders and they showed great skill, attitudes and everyone showed their beautiful smiles as they had so much fun completing the challenges. 


Fantastic work Class 2!
