During Anti-bullying Week Year 2 have been thinking about this year’s theme of being united against bullying. They have been learning about ways they can help to stop bullying taking place.
In Nursery we celebrated Bonfire Night by watching a Rainbow firework and having some sparklers. The children also had some Bonfire cake and made their own chocolate apples too.

Remembrance Day was always going to be very different this year but this did not stop Year 2 remembering in their own special way. All the children took part in the Poppy Run which was followed by a 2 minute silence to remember the fallen. The children found out about why we remember the armistice…
Y6 used watercolours to create a somber feel for their Remembrance artwork. The brief was to draw poppies of varying heights with elements of texture and depth. The children chose to use watercolours as they felt they reflected the muted and soft feelings of remembrance and loss.
During this week we have enjoyed listening to lots of stories about pumpkins! We made Cinderella’s Coach by melting wax crayons on it, we made and tasted pumpkin soup, we enjoyed sparklers on Bonfire Night and made up fantastic stories about broomsticks and magic!
