Year 2

We had a great trip to Oakham Museum to learn about Toys through the ages. Emma showed us toys from Victorian times, 1950s and modern favourites. We played many old games, did a treasure hunt and made spinners. It was a great start to our new Topic

We had a fabulous finish to our first half term and a celebration on Friday Afternoon to finish our topic Happy, Healthy Me.

Winners of the Beautiful Babies competition were both Phoebe and Freya- congratulations to them and thank you to all the parents for a fun and enjoyable afternoon. We raised over £25 for our class charity Shelter through selling our artwork- an excellent start to our fundraising.

We enjoyed our trip to Oakham market and our fruit crumble making. We also made real lemonade for our Fabulous finish.

Forest schools was a lovely sunny day and our Harvest Festival and collection made our Harvest a Bright one !

We had a great morning at Oakham Library with Diane the Librarian.

We listened to the story of supertato and chose a set of books for our classroom. Children will be bringing home details of how you can join Oakham Library if you wish to do so.
