'Lights, Camel, Action' Year 2 Song Words

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

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.


Children, you are the most pure, kindhearted, forgiving bundles of energy that I could possibly have the privilege to spend my days with.  I strive to teach in a way that children will remember, building their confidence, even if that does mean I sing and dance my way through the day. If you hear Disney music playing loudly down the corridor, or a song involving llamas, it is most likely me!


I cannot wait to begin a new year with you Suffolk! I imagine there are many talents, achievements and successes you will experience, hurdles you will conquer and memories we will share. It won’t always be easy, but that’s half the fun of it!


So pack your voices, dancing shoes and imagination, and welcome to Year 2…


Love Miss Towler x
