This term we are enjoying learning about castles and knights. We visited Conisbrough Castle and had a fabulous time.

Sept 2017

Our new and exciting topic for this half term is called “Land Ahoy!” During this topic we will go on an incredible adventure exploring what life is like at sea, researching historical voyages and creating our own imaginative stories set at sea.

We have had a visit from R.N.L.I. who told us all about keeping safe near water.

We have all be busy celebrating writing week. We started the week with our guest author Jade Glitheroe who shared the books she'd written. Jade really inspired the children to improve their writing and to have a go at their own illustrations.  Well done everyone.

Everyone had fun during our visit from the Puzzle Company. We were all placed into groups and were set challenges to complete as a team.

As part of our topic 'Bounce' the Year 2's visited the Institute of Sport at Sheffield where we practised javelin, relay racing and long jump. We had a fantastic day. :)

Welcome everyone !

We hope you are enjoying your time in Butterflies Class. We certainly are ! :)

We love the way the children have all settled into their new groups and  Year 2 daily activities. We have so much more to look forward to this half term.

Our new topic is 'BOUNCE'. Children will take part in a variety of fun sports activities. They will also develop their imagination as they learn interesting facts about famous sporting individuals.

Keep it up and thank you for being so kind and hardworking children.

Olympic day

To celebrate the Olympics, soon to be taking place in Rio, the Junior children joined in our mini Olympic day with both Butterflies and Foxes classes. We represented team GB. It was a very hot day so we were all very tired and hot but we all still managed to have a great day.


All the adults were invited to come along and join us showcasing our work which we have worked on this half term. Our topic was ‘Wriggle and Crawl’ and we have found out lots of facts and have had oodles of fun with our learning.

World Book Day is a huge celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading in schools, libraries and homes in over 100 countries.

You can celebrate books in all sorts of ways; by sharing a favourite story, dressing up as a favourite book character or heading to your local bookshop or library for a storytelling.

We had so much fun in Butterflies Class coming into school dressed up as our favourite book character along with bringing in our favourite book.




We have had a busy half term exploring and investigating our topic, “Muck Mess and Mixtures”. We have learnt through creative mediums such as paint, clay, dough and mixtures etc.

We have carried out lots of experiments which tied into our 'Muck Mess and Mixtures' topic. We have been working scientifically, testing different products and making predictions about what will happen and why. We made predictions about what happens to ingredients when they are mixed with water. We also found out which soap ingredient creates the most bubbles! We have observed the melting process of chocolate. We have had great fun getting messy




We had a great time visiting Conisbrough Castle. We went into the Keep at the castle and saw how the Lords and Ladies lived hundreds of years ago.

We learnt why a castle was built at Conisbrough and explored the lives of people who lived and worked here. We enjoyed investigating artefacts from the past and discovered what life was like in a medieval castle.

Thank you to everyone who helped on our lovely day out. We hoped you enjoyed it just as much as we did.

As you know, this half term, Butterflies topic is called “Land Ahoy”. Last Monday we had Partake Theatre Company to come to school to work with us.

We joined Captain Jack as we all dressed up in pirate costumes and sailed the high seas from island to island in search of hidden treasure.

 Our journey took us to Polynesia, Antarctica, and a volcanic island before we finally reached our ‘Treasure Island’, whilst encountering penguins, monkeys and parrots on the way.

 This fun-filled session used a mixture of music, costumes, props, drama, mime and dance to give us an idea of travel, habitats and climates through imaginative and stimulating role-play.
