Fire Engines 


We have been learning all about wheels, axels and chassis in our Design and Technology work this half term. We explored modern day fire engines by looking at the main features and then we designed our own. We worked together in pairs to make our own fire engines using a range of materials including recycled egg boxes, paint, wheels, washers and axels. Have look at our incredible fire engines below. 

Children In Need 


To celebrate and raise money for Children in Need we all came to school in our sparkly and smart outfits. The children had a fantastic day and spent the afternoon with different teachers. There was quiz and bingo time with Miss Peacock, singing with Mr Noakes and dancing 'The Strictly' with Mrs McNamara. Below you can see a clip of our amazing dance.

Great Fire of London


Cedar and Sycamore class had a fantastic day learning even more about the Great Fire of London. Our special visitor started off the day by teaching the children different trades from around the time of 1666 including bread making, leather work and weaving. The children got to choose the trades that they wanted to know more about and created some fantastic pieces that they got to take home with them. Later in the day, they got to learn more about the progression of the fire and even got to experience putting out the fire, pulling down houses and exploding buildings to stop the fire from spreading. Miss Marks and I are so pleased with how immersed the children were and of course for how fantastically well they behaved. We hope you enjoyed it, Year 2.

Welcome to Cedar Class 




We have all had a fantastic start to Year 2. I am so proud of how well Cedar Class have settled into being Year 2, always ready to learn with smiles on their faces. They have an amazing attitude to the work they are set and are full of questions. 


Our topic until Christmas is the Great Fire of London.  As the Great Fire of London started in Thomas Farriner's bakery on Pudding Lane we began our topic by tasting and describing different types of bread. We have also built origami boats and houses as well as learn some interesting facts about why the fire spread so quickly and lasted so long.


Check back soon for some pictures of our fantastic learning.
