Week beginning 12th July 2021
It has been a busy week in Year 2 and, although tired, the children have been working hard and surprising us with their perseverance.
On Wednesday we completed our final races for the Southborough Olympics and we are now waiting excitedly to hear the results at the Southborough Summer Olympics Medal Ceremony on Tuesday. (Please see this week’s Friday News about PE kits for next week).
Another highlight of the week was Science. We were looking at real plant roots and discovering why they are so important for a plant to survive! The children produced some amazingly labelled, scientific diagrams of plants.
In History this week we have been comparing Southborough High Street as it looks today with how it looked in the past. We were considering the similarities and the differences. One of the biggest surprises was the difference in the number of cars, as well as the reduction in greenery. Although the addition of electric street lamps was definitely seen as an improvement.
Finally, beware the Surrey Puma which was last sighted in our Olga da Polga story! The children have been writing their version of what happened to Olga when rumours of an escaped puma abound!

A little message from Miss Towler, Friday 10th July 2020:
Hello Suffolk 1,
On 22nd April 1999, I decided I wanted to be a teacher. At 7 my teacher was just wonderful, everything I aim to be one day. 16 years later I taught my first class and it was everything I wanted it to be and more.
