Term 2 Week 7
On Monday the children performed their nativity ‘Lights, Camel, Action’ to the camera. It was a dazzling dance show to say the least! There were a lot of songs, sparkle and epic dance moves. The children did a fantastic job with the singing, acting and dancing! All the teachers and teaching assistants are very proud of the children for their excellent work with the rehearsals and the final performance.
“I really enjoyed doing the final performance because we got to show how much we had practiced it and how hard we had worked!” Milo J
“I was so happy to be on stage with my friends and being able to sing, dance and express myself outside of the classroom” Abigail C
“I’m really proud of everyone for how hard they worked and how well they did in the final performance!” Kayla K
This week we had a grand selection of Christmas composers to choose from!
Here are some of our favourites:
This famous piece by composer Leroy Anderson is also about a fun sleigh ride through the snow!
Watch the different percussion instruments adding to the fun in this performance – can you spot instruments
that portray the horses?
Here are the King’s College choir performing, listen out for the young treble voices singing together in the last verse and the beautiful 4 part singing in harmonies.
On Tuesday 15th of December, Year 2 were lucky enough to have a visit from Tom and Becky, actors who performed ‘The night before Christmas’. We loved watching them sing, dance and act silly to make us laugh! We especially enjoyed being able to clap along with the songs, the ‘ho ho ho’ bit was our favourite. There were only 2 actors but they played over 7 characters! They changed incredibly quickly. We found it hilarious when Santa got stuck up the chimney and only his boot came through the fireplace.
“Tom pretended to play the drums and I liked it because he could spin them around with his fingers!” Jake.
“I liked it when they pretended that they were looking for the sleigh and she couldn’t find it. We had to say ‘it’s behind you!’ Evie-Mae
“I loved the part when Dasher (I think it was Becky) showed her muscles, she was quite a strong reindeer!”. Oscar B
In PE, excitingly, we did our Christmas Sponsored Star Jumps during PE lesson. The aim was for pupils to be given the opportunity to see how many star jumps they can complete in a minute! All the money raised will go towards purchasing books for the new Discovery Centre. Prizes will be awarded for the highest number of jumps and highest amount raised per individual in each year group.
Thank you as always for your ongoing support and enthusiasm. We can't wait to see what next term brings! A huge thank you to all of you who have sent in cards, gifts and made contributions to the food bank as Christmas gifts to the Year 2 team. We really do appreciate all your kindness and support. Have a wonderful break and we look forward to seeing you, when we return to school on the 5th January.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Lots of love
The Year 2 Team :)

A little message from Miss Silcott, Friday 10th July 2020:
Hello Norfolk 1!
When I was younger my favourite thing to do was to play ‘teachers’. I had my own chalk board and I used to make my younger sister sit down for hours whilst I ‘taught’ her. When I was in Year 1 I had a fantastic teacher called Mrs Plunkett and she completely inspired me with her creativity and love of teaching. From then on I knew I wanted to be just like her!
I love being a Primary School Teacher because I enjoy learning about and discovering new things myself. I feel privileged to be able to nurture children and to help them grow and flourish. Every child is an individual and has their own unique personality. I love hearing about children’s own personal interests, so that, where possible, we can incorporate these into our classroom to make daily learning interesting and fun, to help all of us achieve things we may not even have considered before.
As your class teacher I will strive to ensure that everybody in the class is confident to speak about and share their ideas. We will all celebrate each other’s successes, and support each other where we can, to give everyone a sense of belonging, and to make everyone feel included in a caring and safe environment where we will create many happy memories together.
Outside of school I love spending time with my family exploring the countryside. I also enjoy going to London with my friends to visit new and interesting places. I love horses and was able to ride horses before I was able to walk! I also have a dog called Penny who is extremely mischievous.
I can’t wait to meet you all and for your Year 2 journey to begin – speak to you very soon! J
Love Miss Silcott x
