World Book Day Activities!

To celebrate World Book Day this year, we have been asked to perform a poem of our choice.

Michael Rosen is one of our favourite Authors and Poets, we are HUGE fans and love watching him perform his own poems. There are lots of examples of these on Youtube, such as Chocolate Cake, Strict, Michael's Big Book of Bad Things, to name a few! 

We found it really tricky to choose our favourite poem to perform in our school bubble, but in the end we chose 'Hand on the Bridge', a poem with an interesting rhythm, repetition, and opportunities to perform with our bodies. 

Please see below, our own version of Michael Rosen's 'Hand on the Bridge', as performed by our lovely Year 2 Bubble!

Think back to when we planted our tomato plants, our runner beans, our conkers and acorns, and when we went to the allotment and planted the vegetables in our patch!  How did we plant them? What do they need to grow?

  • A letter from Sir David Attenborough

    Published 13/03/21, by Susan Tarpey

    In the autumn term year 2 studied the sustainable development goal Life on Land. We learnt all about the importance of trees for life on our planet. We learnt how trees provide crucial habitats for animals and if we lose trees animals will loose their homes. At the end of term the children wrote letters to Sir David Attenborough to explain what they are doing to help look after the planet in their own way. It was very exciting this week when we received a letter and postcard from Sir David Attenborough who wanted to thank the children for their interest and to say that he is delighted that the children find his programmes interesting.
