Our anti-bulllying week has looked at how we can use one kind word. We've been finding out how to make ourselves and others happy. We have passed on compliments and been passing smiles. Watch the video below and see if our smiles make you smile.

We're ready for PE this half term. We've all got our hoodies to wear on PE days.

Great reading Ronnie. Well done for reading our 'reading at home prize'. Enjoy reading We're going on a bear hunt!

We have been listening to more Michael Rosen poems. One of our favourite poems is called Don't. We also made a poem about things we like. Listen to our own class poems below.

We had a fantastic day at Thackray Medical Museum. We had a guide (Florence Nightingale herself!) who took us back in time to Scutari Hospital. We all had to be porters or nurses and cleaned the hospital, took care of a very sick solider, Jensen and completed many more jobs. Ralph was a fantastic Potty Porter.

We later explored the museum and found out about Leeds in the past.

Another musical opportunity today- to be part of a rock band! We had Isaac playing keyboard, Riley-Jo on Electric Guitar and Leah on drums.

We took part in an African Drumming workshop. We learned songs from Ghana and practised different rhythms.

We've had a super week, looking at poetry. We've listened to lots and lots of poems by Michael Rosen. We also enjoyed a poem called Bendy Man by Harry Baker. We changed the ideas to create own own version called Bendy Cat.

We couldn't blow down houses made from blocks.

We couldn't blow over a house of sticks.

We couldn't even blow a house of straw over. We think that wolves must have much more puff than us!

We have been testing whether the story of The Three Little Pigs is based upon real ideas- that it is easy to blow a house of straw and a house of sticks down and is impossible to blow a house of brick over. The first step was to build the three houses.

Congratulations to Matilda, who the class voted for to be the class councillor. It was a close vote but she won by one vote.

Welcome back to everyone. We have all enjoyed the first week in Year Two and enjoying getting back to a 'normal' school environment.
