Elfis Presley

This week has been massively interrupted by the cheeky Elf on the Shelf, Elfis Presely (what a name!). This cheeky elf has caused uproar in Year Two by constantly moving around the class, leaving messages and creating a little bit of a mess. He checked our maths books, decorated the room, played with some pom-poms and had a McDonald’s lunch. So far, he has been generally well behaved. We’re hoping it stays that way next week. Have a look at the pictures to see some of his escapades.

In our English work this week, we have been planning a story inspired by our book ‘Rosie Revere, Engineer’. As a class, we created a plan for our story and then wrote the first two paragraphs. Once we read through our writing, we decided that we could make it better. We talked about where we could add descriptive words, make the sentence clearer and make the story more interesting. Our story now reads:

In a land far away, there was a cool, smart boy called Tim Tinker who dreamed of flying around the world. His talent was making giant paper aeroplanes for his friends.

One random sunny day, clever Tim Tinker wanted to make a paper aeroplane that could fly him around the world. He excitedly boinged on his pogo stick to the shops to get his materials and made a bombastic blueprint.

Awesome writing Year Two!

On Thursday, Year Two went to Ellesmere Port Sports Village to take part in Chester School Sport Partnership’s ‘Multi-Skills Festival’. We got to try a variety of different activities where we learned and practiced new skills, like throwing, jumping, running and coordination. It was a lot of fun! Mr. Sparks tried the cups pyramid, but found it really hard!

Thursday after school was the Christmas Fayre, which was so well attended and lots of fun. With the support of the wonderful parents, the school managed to raise lots of money that will go towards lots of new resources and activities for the children. Thank you for your support!

Friday was a lovely day. We had an assembly in the morning to learn about Christingle and what it represented. Then we got to work with the Year Four class and make our own Christingles. In the afternoon, we went to church to take part in a Christingle service.
