Class 2/3 - Maple

Maple Class

In Terms 1 and 2 we had a great learning experience looking at South America and the Amazon Rainforest. Our trip to Howletts helped us to appreciate the importance of wildlife and we did our assembly on saving the rainforests. After that we raised some money for the WWF because we felt passionately about the issue of conservation.

We also had great fun trying Box2bfit for the first time and we really strengthened our bodies and improved our coordination. During #HelloYellow week we raised awareness about mental health, we had a good time taking some friendly, smiley selfies (you can see them in the school entrance) and doing yoga with Mina.

Christmas was also very exciting as year 2 were narrators in the Nativity and we had a delicious Christmas dinner!

This year we are very lucky to have French with Mrs Reynolds and have been learning how to greet each other and some lovely French songs.

Finally, we have started our Jigsaw programme and have met our new classmates 'Jigsaw Jo', 'Jigsaw Jino' and 'Jerrie Cat'. Jigsaw has helped us to talk about 'being me in my world' and 'celebrating difference'. It has been a wonderful start to the 2019-2020 year!
