Sharing Dragon Stories with the Younger Children

This term, Year 2 have been writing dragon stories for the reception and nursery children. This week, the children finished their wonderful creations and we visited the reception class yesterday and the nursery today so the children could share the fabulous books they had made. The Year 2 children told me they were a bit nervous at first: they were anxious that the little ones might find their stories too scary! The reception and nursery children loved to buddy up with the Year 2 children and were very excited and complementary about the books the children had made. All the children were incredibly well behaved and the little ones sat and listened beautifully! Well done Year 2- I’m very impressed with your work.

English Lesson at Manor Barn

We were blessed with absolutely beautiful autumnal weather last week for our English lesson at Manor Barn. Year 2 walked across the footbridge (waving at the cars as we went) to the stunning gardens. We were thinking autumnal thoughts and collecting nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs for the children’s poems about Autumn. The children were impeccably well behaved and worked really hard for the hour we were out and came back to school brimming with ideas for their poems. We hope that you enjoy reading our poems as much as we enjoyed writing them!
