1 Are you ready Nod and Neddy.wma

SONG: Tell Me Somebody.

 

Tell me somebody

Do you know what is Christmas?

I really would like to know

I’m gonna look around

Til the answer is found

Can anybody let me know?

 

Tell me somebody

Do you know what is Christmas?

It looks so good to me

With all the decorations that shine and glisten

With the lights on the Christmas tree.

 

Are you ready, everybody

To look around?

Are you ready, everybody

To look around?

Are you ready, everybody

To look around?

I really would like to know. (x2)

Winter nights (performance track).mp3

SONG: Winter Nights

 

When the winter nights grow long

And the stars are shining bright,

I will rock you in my arms

And hold you through the night.

 

When the winter nights grow dark

And the fire is burning bright

I will rock you in my arms

Until the morning light,

 

And my arms will keep you safe

And the fire will keep you warm

And the song inside your soul

Gives you shelter from the storm.

6 Glory to God.wma

SONG: Glory to God

 

Glory to God in the highest

Glory to God in the highest

Glory to God in the highest

Glory to God x2

 

Good tidings of great joy we bring

To all the people

Good tidings of great joy we bring

To all the world

For unto us is born this day

In the town of David

A saviour who is Christ the Lord

Christ the Lord

 

(Repeat all then: )

Glory to God in the highest

Glory to God in the highest

Glory to God in the highest

Glory to God x2

Autumn Term 2 - Fires and Festivals

 

Please take a look at our exciting Fires and Festivals topic Knowledge Organiser.

The Three Tower Challenge!

Today we took part in the Year 2 Three Tower Challenge. We were tasked with building a monopole, self-standing and guyed tower to safely and securely hold an egg at the top.

 

During this investigation, we explored the structural engineering of each type of tower. We can now use some of the advantages of each type when building our model lighthouses, making sure they are just as secure!

The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch!

 

 

 

We had a very exciting launch into our new Talk for Writing unit around 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' by Ronda and David Armitage. Our Swallows and Kingfishers came across a rather scrumptious looking picnic, much like one which would have been packed for Mr Grinling, the Lighthouse Keeper. The children talked about which adjectives could be used to describe the food on the picnic blanket, inspired of course by the flavours, aromas and textures of the foods which they experienced after tasting them!

 

Yummy!

 

The life and work of Grace Darling (dramatisation) | History - True Stories

Autumn Term 1

 

Have a look at our topic organiser to see what exciting learning will be going on in the first Autumn term in Year 2. Our first topic is the Seaside Rescue! A lovely topic which works nicely as a transition unit of work, building on the seaside work which the children started at the end of Year 1. In our Seaside Rescue topic we will continue to explore the coast, this time through the eyes of our coastguards and the RNLI. We will also discover the story and history of Grace Darling as well study the geography of our beautiful coastline. 

 

Our first three weeks of writing will be inspired by the story, 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' by Ronda and David Armitage. Following that, we will look at instruction writing, which we will link with our DT unit, designing and building a model lighthouse!
