Our Home Learning
We absolutely love to see what you are doing at home and we like to celebrate this in class regularly. If you want to feature on our home learning wall, make sure that you get your parents to send your teacher a picture or video!

Word Book Day 2020
We had a surprise visit from Elmer the Elephant this year and we were able to visit our library area and share lots of Elmer stories together. We dressed up as our favourite characters or as a word as part of our vocabulary parade. We all had a wonderful day celebrating our love for reading.
2AC present - Let's Talk About Plastic!
 
2AC performed a whole school assembly to raise awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution. The children learned so much through doing this and have all made a pledge to use less single use plastics; they have even persuaded their families to think twice before using them and many families are already making simple changes to help protect our oceans!
 
We have been working alongside our link school in South Africa on this very important topic and together we have been looking at how to recycle plastic. 2AC are particularly proud of their recycled bottle bird feeders.
2EL's Class Assembly -
Respect
The children were great in our class assembly! They spoke very clearly on stage and everyone remembered their parts. They all conveyed a very important message to the rest of the school about respect.
Useful Documents
Below is an electronic copy of some useful documents. If you cannot find the document that you need, please contact your child's class teacher. All of our letters are now emailed to parents/carers via the ParentPay platform.
