Vibrant Vocabulary Parade- Friday 22nd June

This exciting event is a fun way to celebrate our love of wonderful words and varied vocabulary. We are inviting you to come to school dressed as your chosen word with the word clearly displayed on your outfit. During the day we will have a parade, where you will have the chance to show off your costume and we will also take lots of photographs to display around our school.

Please choose a word from your year group’s list below. You will notice that most of the words are very challenging. This event will be great fun but it is also a chance for you to hear and learn new vocabulary.

Mystery Seeds

Yesterday we planted these seeds in different types of light and will give the three others different amounts of water to investigate how well they grow. Can anyone guess what they might grow into?

We thoroughly enjoyed listening to ‘The Merseyside Police Band’ earlier this week. We loved all the songs, but especially the Disney ones! We learnt all about the different instruments that make up the band. We didn’t want your performance to end. Well done everyone!


Nocturnal Animals Homework

Thank you to all Year 2 pupils who have brought in their Easter  homework.
