Year 2 Christmas Crafts

Thank you for joining us on our Christmas craft afternoon!

Children in need 2019

To raise money for Children in Need, we came into school wearing spots and odd socks. We took part in lots of different activities throughout the day and worked in different classrooms. We made masks and bookmarks, Pudsey maths and literacy and then exercised by showing off our best Pudsey bear dancing moves. We all took part in a Pudsey daily mile, wearing our masks.

Interfaith week

As part of interfaith week 2019 we have been looking at Islamic Mendhi patterns.

We designed some of our own and then even created some on purple mash. 

Tri-golf tournament

Year 2 took part in a tri-golf tournament.

We learnt lots of new skills and how to put the ball into different coloured cones to score points.

What a fun afternoon!
