owl reading

Hello Owls!

It is time for our annual Unusual Reading Competition!
Your holiday homework is to get a photograph of you reading in the most unusual place you can think of. Please email your photos to my email address so I can post them all on our blog.

Competition Rules:

You should have your photograph in the most unusual, safe place you can think of.
Your face must be covered by the book you are reading.
Your Reading Diary should be in the photograph too.

The competition closes on Wednesday 5th November and the winners will be announced in Year 2 assembly in Wednesday 12th November.

Have fun and good luck! I can’t wait to see all your photos.

Parents’ Reading Workshop

Thank you to all parents who attended the Reading Workshop – we hope it was useful to hear about the bookmarks and the comprehension side of reading in Year 2.

Our trip to the Museum of Science and Industry

On Tuesday we went on a long coach journey to Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry.

When we arrived we met Engineer Eric and Forgetful Fred, and they told us all about Pender – a steam engine! We learnt about putting coal in the fire box for fuel, boiling the water for steam and how the pistons go forwards and backwards inside the cylinders.

We wrote thank you letters to Engineer Eric and Forgetful Fred telling them all about the fun things we learned at the museum.

Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came on the trip with us – we really couldn’t have gone without you and you were really helpful!
