Flanimal Zoo
Thank you to everyone who came to our Flanimal Zoo to share our learning. We built up our Science understanding of living things and their habitats and used this to create our own animals!

Chinese New Year
Year 2 enjoyed a Chinese dance workshop to help mark Chinese New Year last week. We learned a Dragon dance and had a go at moving together in the dragon costume – it was a little tricky to stay together!

The Reindeer Run
Year 2 had a super time donning their antlers and running around our daily mile track to raise money for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice! Thank you to everyone who came out in the rain to support us and everyone who kindly sponsored our run!

Windsor Castle

Swallows had a super day at Windsor Castle! We were able to see the guards, visited St George’s Chapel and learned all about how Queen Victoria lived in the castle when she was monarch. The royal standard flag told us that Queen Elizabeth was in residence too but unfortunately she was a little bit too busy to pop and see us!

Tag Rugby

Today, Year 2 began a series of lessons on Tag Rugby. We learned about looking for and moving into space and how to use the balls of our feet to dodge if we need to move quickly! It was tiring work but there were lots of smiles!
