Hello, welcome to our page for our new class 2S. My name is Mrs Shazadi and our lovely teaching assistant is Mrs Floyd, she's looking forward to getting to know all the lovely children in year 2. So far we have had a completely brilliant start. We hope you will enjoy looking through our page and finding out about all the exciting things we have been getting up to in Year 2.
Easter Craft Afternoon: Thank you to all the parents that attended the children had a lovely time.
On Friday 9th December we held a Christmas craft afternoon. Parents and children worked together to create some fantastic Christmas crafts. The children and parents had a fabulous festive time and created some wonderful items.
Elf on the shelf:
On Thursday 1st December 2016, Father Christmas sent one of his elves to watch over Year 2. Each night he rings Father Christmas to report on Year 2's behaviour. Have they been making right choices? Each morning the children find the elf in strange places. Today he had been reading the 'Gorilla' story and watched all the children writing brilliant adventure stories. What mischief will we encounter?.......
This week the children have been learning about families. We looked at what makes a family and created a family tree looking at pictures children brought in from home of their family. Children presented a fantastic performance in assembly about the things they do at home to help their family, how they spend time together and different celebrations they take part in. During the end of the presentation children sang a song 'we are family' with family photos in the background. Later that day they presented this to their family. Our families joined in with the singing. Children also enjoyed spending time with their families taking part in team games and activities. What a brilliant week!
Year 2 had a lovely day at The National Sea Life Centre. The whole class learnt lots of new facts to help them with their topic. The children produced some fantastic narrative writing based around their amazing trip.
Writing week: To start our writing week the children received a letter from Captain Blackbeared. Captain Blackbeard wrote to year 2 asking them to continue his treasure chest journey because he had been captured. He left some pirate clues around school which led to the treasure chest. We then explored all the items in the chest.
Special Visitor: During our writing week, the children had a special visit from Pirate Peggy. Pirate Peggy is Mrs Wright great great Grandmother and had come to Merritts Brooke looking for her lost treasure, which was left behind by pirate Blackbeard on Monday morning. The children were so excited to ask her lots of questions which they had thoughtfully thought of the day before.
The children had so much fun watching a pantomime version of Cinderella.
Thank you to everyone who came to our parent workshop! We celebrated the end of our fantastic topic 'Towers, Tunnels and Turrets' with a fun-filled art afternoon making and decorating our very own shields!
For our Towers, Tunnels and Turrets topic we designed and made our very own castles. We remembered to include all the features of a castle which we learnt previously.
Working as a team.

The children love their drumming lessons with Mark and have learnt how to play a range of different instruments.
Principals tea party
Jasmine was chosen to attend the Principals tea party due to displaying the value of the month PRIDE. She is always proud of the work she produces and shows great pride in presenting her work at a high standard. Well done!
