Year 2 were lucky enough to go to St Margarets Junior school this morning to watch the scientist Tim Harrison from Bristol University Chemlab and his amazing show of Gases In The Air. It was amazing! They learnt many interesting facts and saw some brilliant chemical reactions.

This site gives some great advice on keeping safe online. Please have a look and read the appropriate information for the age of your child.
They took part in many activities throughout the day. In the morning they were measured for their uniform, weighed and checked for their age, some of them lied!!
They had fitness tests carrying a backpack full of kit, drill marched on the playground in the cold and rain. The children also had the chance to look at several artifacts we have in school and some even tried to play the bugle!
Most of all they had a great day and really enjoyed learning all about how hard it was in those days.

Year 2 Using the Library
Some of our Super Year 2 Learning.
Your child has been accessing Purple Mash at school and so we would like to give them the opportunity to use this at home.
They have been given information on how to do this at home along with their logon and password needed.
As always we recommend you supervise them when they are on the computer, especially as this is an online product.
Please find below a copy of the letter that has gone home with instructions on it.
