- About Us
This half term has flown by! The children have worked extremely hard this half term and deserve a well deserved break. Mrs Pinder and Mrs Hendry both left us last week, however after half term we have the wonderful Mrs Guezmil and Mrs Blackett joining the team. We also have lots of fun activities ready for when we begin our new topic 'The Great Fire of London' and will send letters regarding trips we have planned after the half term.

World Book Day is on Thursday 7th March. More information regarding costumes will be provided soon.
Last week year 2 visited Shildon Railway Museum. We had a fantastic day learning about the first steam train and how trains have advanced over the years. We found out the roles of the people on the trains and had a go at lifting coal, you had to be very strong! We also were able to board some of the trains and completed tasks assigned on the afternoon as well as creating our own steam train.
It was also 'story telling week' last week. Thank you to all the children that brought stories in which they had written at home. We had a lovely afternoon sharing these with year 1. We also had the pleasure of 2 volunteers Mrs Singleton and Mrs Watts who came in to read a story to us. They all did a super job.
This week is Storytelling week in school. Some of the children have already taken on the challenge of writing their own stories to share with their friends! We loved listening to Harriet's this morning and have more to listen to this week.
On Thursday the children are visiting Shildon Railway Museum as we are starting to look at different forms of transport in our topic lessons. Please remind your children to wear adequate footwear and a warm coat for this trip. We will update you with pictures of our trip next week.

This week in maths we are moving on to division. We are looking at what division means and different ways we can share, using our times tables knowledge.
In topic we are looking at satellite images and plotting routes from different landmarks. The children are excited to discuss the physical and human features they saw during our trip to the pantomime.
In maths we have been learning about multiplication. The children have used counters and cubes as well as pictures to show how to find the answer to multiplication questions.
Last week Lewis and Harry were both awarded Star of the Week and Joshua was awarded Dojo star. Well done! We would also like to say a big well done to all of the children for their behaviour at the pantomime last week. They were a credit to our school.
