Well done Year 2! What a fantastic worship about celebrating the fact that
'We are all different!'
World Book Day Drama workshops
Year 2 had such a fantastic day exploring all the evidence left from the alien visit. We've produced some brilliant writing which we're very proud of including describing our own aliens and enjoying the book
'The night the stars went out' by Suz Hughes.
We're becoming such fantastic readers and writers in Year 2. We've entered the 500 words competition and enjoyed world book day, reading with year 5!
