What a party!
Year 2 had an amazing time recently at their school Christmas Party. It started off with the Christmas Hat competition which was judged by Mrs Brown and Mrs Mayo (thankfully we didn’t have to decide as it was very difficult!). Well done to the winners who had clearly put lots of effort into their designs – as did all the children which was why it was especially tricky to decide.
Then we had a huge game of pass the parcel. It seemed like it was going on forever with layer after layer coming off the parcel until eventually a winner was found!
It was then time for the most important event – the girls vs boys dance off! After several songs, the final 4 boys and final 4 girls were chosen. Two more songs before the champions were crowned. There were some fabulous shapes performed by the children which would have definitely put my back out if I had tried!!
Well done Year 2. I hope you have a really relaxing break over Christmas.
As you may have seen in your child’s book bags, for the Year 2 Christmas Party on Monday 18th December, the children do not need a ticket to get in…instead they need to come with their most creative Christmas hat!
The boys and girls will be judged separately by a special guest judge with prizes for the winners.
As there is plenty of time before the party, this will allow you to create a hat of epic proportions!!
Please note – only hats that are homemade have a chance of winning a prize.
Here are the winners the last time we held this competition:
2PY have recently begun to be avid watchers of the weather! We looked through our recent home learning and then tried to predict the next week’s weather based on what’s happened recently. We have all stuck predictions in our books and will update this at the end of the week to see how accurate we were.
Some of the class were keen to become weather presenters that they took centre stage to tell us about their home learning…
2PY have been learning to recognise and count with money this week.
From the coins currently in circulation we have made amounts different ways and even tried to find the one which uses the fewest coins. We then moved onto adding notes into the prices, which most have grasped very well. Why not let the children count how much money is in their money box or in your purse/wallet – I have told the children to only count it and not move it from your purse into their own money boxes!!
