Pledges & Promises

21 Sep 2017

Hello 2JH,


It's been a very eventful week for us all. Telferscot having our Green Day celebration on Wednesday, completing our Art display work and more! We all came up with our own ways about how we are green in school and a personal pledge for how we could help to be even more eco friendly. We've also been doing lots of new and interesting learning this week. 

Maths - Adding different amounts of numbers together using hundred squares and number lines!

English - Exploring our new text 'Dear Greenpeace' and writing our own informal letters to our friends. 

Science - We looked at the different habitats that a range of animal lived in.

Computing - Using the scratch program to create a space themed setting with an animated moving rocket!


Radbourne have their Show and Tell on 22nd September 

PE kits Monday and Friday 

Trip letters to be returned by 26th September for the trip which is on 10th October 

Kind regards, 


Bonkers for Conkers

Hello 2JH :)


What an amazing start to the year we've had, our second week is already at an end. I've been super impressed with how you've all settled in with the help of all the lovely parents. We've done some fantastic learning this week:

Maths - We have been looking at place value, number sequences and some times tables.

English - 2JH have continued to explore our book ' The Promise', retelling our own versions of the story and beginning to have a look at some awesome alliteration.

Art - Drawing our own self portraits using tracing paper and different colours.

PSHE - We have spoken about what things we may hear in the playground and how we could/should respond to them to make our school a nicer place to be.

The first half of the class had their first Forest School session where they went hunting for conkers and were able to play some bonkers conkers games!


PE kits Monday and Friday

Tuck shop is on Wednesday

Emmanuel have their first show and tell tomorrow Friday 15th September

Green Day Wednesday 20th September - wear as much green as possible (more info to come)

Welcome Back 2JH!

07 Sep 2017

Hello everyone and welcome back!


Hope you've all had a wonderful summer holiday and are ready to start the new school year. It has been a great start to the year so far with 2JH getting to know each other a little better and beginning to delve into the new Year 2 topics. Our topic for this term is Rights and Responsibilites where we will be focusing on how we look after our local area through methods such as composting. A trip to the Peckham Wildlife Centre will help us gain an even greater understanding of our topic.

In Maths we have been looking at place value and learning how to use hundred squares to help us. In English we have started to explore 'The Promise' by Nicola Davies with a range of different adjectives to describe settings.



Parent Pop in evening on Monday 11th September until 6.30pm

PE is on Monday and Friday

Show and Tell on Fridays will be in the following order - Emmanuel 15th, Radbourne 22nd, Midmoor 29th and Burnbury 6th Oct

All the best,

Mr Henry

Farewell to Year 1!

19 Jul 2017

We have had a lovely final week together so far! We have been looking back at our favourite memories of year 1 and writing a lovely memory page. In literacy we looked at adjectives we can use to describe how amazing we are! We discussed synonyms and which adjectives fit when talking about a person. In art we designed and created individual class shields that represent us and our class. In maths we have been solidifying all of our amazing year 1 knowledge with our own maths booklets. 

Today we will be doing a games day with Year 2 which will be a lot of fun! 

Also the children will be coming home with all their maths books and learning journals and anything that has been left behind in the cloakroom so expect Leiden down children!


TOMORROW - is Sports Day. Children can come to school in their PE kit. It starts at 10:30 under the railway bridge on the common. There will be a whole school picnic lunch at 12 which everyone is invited to. (Remember to pack a packed lunch and lots of water!) You are then more than welcome to take your children home. No worries at all if you can't we will be heading back to school to carry on th fun and games!

FRIDAY - certificate assembly starts at 9:15 and the school day ends at 2.
