Yesterday all the children in Year 2 received a Christmas Maths LEGO puzzle.
The children had to build the trees and then they learned to play the game.
It is a simple 2 player game. Each player places 1 or 2 lights on the tree and the winner is the person who places the final light on top of the tree. The children had to work out the winning strategy!
Has your child challenged you to the game yet?
When you’ve mastered this challenge, could you draw a tree with more lights and see if you can work out the strategy to win that game too.
Happy Christmas to you all, and keep stretching your brain and challenging yourself in 2016! 🙂

We are very busy, but some of the things we have been doing are surprises!
You will find out more soon….
In Maths we have been busy working with fractions, folding shapes into halves and quarters, while also applying our knowledge of arrays and multiplication. The outcome of our work will become apparent soon!
We have also been busy doing some assessments and a special piece of independent writing about our own imaginary genie. The children drew some wonderful genies and then described them.
Please do come and see the KS1 Christmas Show.
Our performances are on Wednesday at 9.30am and on Thursday at 2.00pm
There will be a blog post with show photos, the programme and a special video on Tuesday.
The Year 2 Christmas Party is on Friday afternoon. As this week’s Ethos Statement is about making healthy choices, we are having a ‘festive fruity fun party!’
Your child has brought home a request for a donation of fruit, which the children will make into some very exciting fruit kebabs!

We have started to put our Christmas performance together.
We would really appreciate it if your child practised the songs and the dance at home. Click below for the words to the songs.
The children will also be bringing home a small booklet with the words next week.
Below is the Strictly dance which all the children are learning. The dance is quite challenging, but it has shown the children that if they practise something and do their best, they can achieve and that practise really does make progress.

The children from the KS1 School Council met for lunch on Friday and together we talked about bullying. We had all listened to the Anti Bullying assembly on Monday and reflected on what we had learned. I am pleased to say that the children felt that there were only a couple of incidents of bullying that they could recall happening in their classes and they were able to talk about how the situation had been dealt with and that currently they didn’t feel there was any bullying taking place in KS1.
We talked about how sometimes we may fall out with our friends, but that it is important to make up again and say ‘sorry’ to each other and that these incidents are not bullying.
We wanted to create a poster to display around school, so we shared our ideas and then decided to use the bee hive to put our messages on. Once the messages were on the beehive, we talked about the bee and decided it was important to leave the school ethos messages on the bee, as when we follow these we are also helping to create a bully free and happy place to learn in.
We will be sharing our poster with KS2 School Councillors, so they may decide to tweak it, but here is our original version.
