2S Reading INSPIRE

Thanks to all of the parents and carers who came to our ‘Baabwaa and Woolliam’ Reading workshop this morning. It was so lovely to see such a fantastic turnout. Everyone listened to the story and the children answered lots of different kinds of questions about it. We then thought about how we can take a story and make something to help us retell it. We used different materials and resources to create stick puppets to do this. The children did a fantastic job of creating them. Take a look at the photos…

Professor McGinty – The Time Travelling Detective

Year 2 were time travelling with a special visitor on Monday 12th November… The energetic and hilarious Professor McGinty helped us travel back to Victorian times and learn what it must have been like for children at that time. We had such a fantastically fun time learning!
