  • The owl who was afraid of the dark.

    Published 27/09/23, by Andy Mari

    Year 2 have had a fantastic few weeks exploring and writing their own stories, based on 'The owl who was afraid of the dark'. We had a camp fire, where we roasted marshmallows, sang songs and played some games. It was so much fun! This week we have planned and written our own story, based on the book. We have changed the character and what they are scared of. We have been amazed by the children's creative ideas. In Birch class, one child wrote about a shark that was scared of the water and in Pine class, a child wrote about a cat who was scared of mice.

    This week Year 2 began their new Literacy topic of The Marvellous, Fluffy, Squishy, Itty-Bitty. The first lesson they thought about people they care about and how they could show it. Next they decorated a cake and wrote a note for that person. In the third lesson of the week it was time for another experience day where they watched a behind the scenes video of a bakery, discussed what you could buy there and then came the best bit- trying some of the foods. They finished this week with a Monster Phonics Day when they dressed up as, or in the colours of one of the monsters and they attended a workshop with Mrs Herbaut to play lots of phonics games. What a busy, but fun week!
