Multi-Skills Competition

This week, 10 children from Years 1 and 2 took part in an exciting competition held at Bonus Pastor, alongside Holy Cross, St. Winifred’s and Downderry Primary Schools. The challenges included a ball throw task where they had to throw a ball against the wall and catch it as many times as possible, without the ball reaching the floor. The children also had to really concentrate in both the Balance Pole and Balance Ball challenges where they were only allowed to balance on one foot for as long as possible. Finally, they took part in a series of running races where they had to run as fast as they could, from one cone to another. Each of the cones were numbered so they had to run in a particular sequence. This ended with a quick sprint race against Downderry Primary School. This was a fantastic opportunity for the children to showcase fundamental skills which will help them to develop their coordination, agility and skills, Well done!

St Paul’s Cathedral visit

Year 2 have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. They were taken back in time to 1666 during their visit to St Paul’s Cathedral. The children were taken on a guided walk around the Crypt and Cathedral floor to find memorials from Old St Paul’s that survived the Great Fire. Through storytelling, they learnt about how the fire started in Pudding Lane and quickly spread. With the aid of role play scripts they dressed up and acted out what it was like during the Great Fire of London.


A huge thank you to our parent helpers who made our visit even more special.

Music – Welcome to Mr Bramley

Our first music lesson with Mr Bramley was great! We sang songs and practised clapping beats. We then played various percussion instruments by shaking them, hitting them and scraping them. We are looking forward to our next music lesson.

London Fire Brigade Visit

Jordanna, a firefighter, visited our class to talk about the importance of smoke alarms and what we must do if a fire were to occur. We learnt that ‘smoke goes up so we go down’  and that we call 999 to ask for the Fire Brigade, Police or London Ambulance services. It was a interactive workshop and we had the opportunity to ask and answer questions. A big thank you to the LFB for our wonderful workshop.

For 2Feet spent the day in school working with Years 1 and 2 on Scooter Safety.  The children received 45 minutes of training – 20 minutes in the playground and 25 minutes on the pavements around the school.  The training included a safety check of equipment, scooter control games, hazards they may encounter while out scootering and safe places to cross the road with a scooter.  All children who took part enjoyed their session and came back full of enthusiasm and knowledge of scooter safety.

Year 2 have starting gardening in their outdoor area.  First we had to take out the weeds that had grown over the winter and add more soil to the pots.  We planted tomato, sunflower and pea seeds inside as it was still too cold for them outside.   They will soon be ready to transplant outdoors.  We are looking forward to seeing the results of our work in the near future.

Year 2 are weaving this term.  The children began by using a paper frame and weaving a selection of paper through it.  They have now moved onto making their own frames and weaving with wool.  We will soon be weaving people and weaving on different shapes.
