Today More than dance company came into Year 2 to teach us treasures through prayer and dance. We looked at how we are the treasures of God and we shared how we can go forward and shine our light and follow in Jesus footsteps. We created our own treasure map, made up of ourselves. We then shared our dance and prayers with the whole school at the end of the day. It was a very lovely day, in which we reflected on ourselves and how we treat others, remembering we are the treasures of God. A big thank you to Deacon Kevin and the girls at more than dance for such a wonderful day!

Last week Northumbria water came to visit KS1 to tell us all about how to keep our drains clean. They gave a pantomime all about Dwayne the drain and told us what we should and should not put down our drain. We sang songs and had lots of fun, thank you to Northumbria water.
It was our last day of reading week today and it has been full of excitement! Year 2 today had a very special guest in our class this morning. Can you spot who?
Today we shared the story of Captain Flynn and the pirate dinosaur and we created wanted posters. We shared the story of Grandfathers clock and created our own maths book about time. This afternoon we visited the school library and chose a book to take home to share. We used computers to create our story book characters and presented them to the class. We have had a great day, filled with lots of fun and lots of reading!
Today the year 2 children visited Boldon Lodge to read the story of the monkey puzzle. The children had to find the parts of the story around the woods and then put it together in order. We then shared the story around the logs and set out to make our own monkey masks. We used the resources in the wood to decorate our masks and we then made our very own monkey den. We had lots of fun and loved exploring in the woods and making nests. Brilliant!
On Friday the children attended Temple Park to take part in an athletics event with other schools in South Tyneside. The children had lots of fun and learnt lots of new skills too!
The school football team recorded their first victory yesterday with a 2-1 victory against Holy Trinity. Charlie Hope scored twice to seal hard fought win. Well done team!
Today in maths we have been exploring 3D shapes. We looked at the nets and had to say what 3D shape it could be. We then opened up the shapes to see the nets.
We then made our very own 3D aliens and presented them to the class.
A big well done to our girls in year 2, who went above and beyond with their reading this week. When reading at home they enjoyed finding out so much about Real Heroes in history that they made puppets to retell what had happened in the events. Keep up the good work girls!
This week year 6 came to share a story with year 2. Year 6 read with the year 2 children and they then worked together to answer questions about the story. Great team work! Thank you year 6!
