Summer 2

Gruffalos reciting The Owl and the Pussycat

Sit back and relax as you enjoy the magnificent recitation of Edward Lear's classic poem 'The Owl and the Pussycat' by the year 2 Gruffalos.

The Gruffalos showed great resilience and teamwork when building their stick towers.

The Gruffalos have been doing lots of practical maths this half term. We have been looking at weighing, capacity and volume. You could practise this at home by doing some baking! We have also been looking at the tricky topic of telling the time. If you have a clock at home, it would be wonderful if you could practise telling the time over the summer.

The Gruffalos have been developing their tennis skills during our Net and Wall PE topic.

The Gruffalos have enjoyed developing their flexibility and balance during this term's Yoga topic.

Look out for a fabulous puppet making its way home next week. In DT, the Gruffalos explored different ways of joining fabric before sewing their very own puppet.

Despite the wet weather causing a last minute change of plan, the Gruffalos had a fantastic class-wide reward party. After competing against each other on a Mario-themed maths game, they spent the rest of the afternoon constructing using Lego, drawing and colouring.

Last term the children were exploring that praying in a mosque gives a sense of belonging because they are worshipping with others who believe and feel the same. They are also in a place specially built to worship God. Praying here shows respect to God. Knowing that all Muslims face the same way when they pray, also makes them feel like they are part of a big family. This term we visited the Madina Masjid Mosque to explore these themes. It was a fantastic morning and the teacher who showed us around was friendly and informative throughout. He showed us how Muslims perform Wudu (washing) before they pray and answered lots of questions. The children were fabulous! They asked many insightful questions and the teacher was amazed that they were only year 2s! We were very proud of the Muslim children who went to the front to pray. They looked very proud of their heritage and were able to show us another side of themselves we don't get to see in school.
