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.
Southborough Summer Olympics:
On Wednesday we completed our final races for the Southborough Summer 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!
Our Head Heroes for the last couple of weeks were Emma Watson and Evie Law. Well done!
If your child is Head's Hero or a Discovery Ambassador, please remember to return the badge before Wednesday 21st July ready for next term.

A little message from Mrs Britton and Mrs Allison,
Friday 10th July 2020:
Hello Yorkshire 1!
As a Primary School Teacher I always find it an incredible privilege to have a part to play in your lives. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to encourage and inspire all of you in Yorkshire 2 to have the confidence to maximize your own educational potential and personal growth.
I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you. You are all amazingly talented and I can’t wait to find out what motivates each and every one of you.
Get ready for a happy, fun-filled approach to learning that celebrates each and every positive step on our exciting journey.
I love to get creative with painting, carrying out scientific experiments with sourdough and practicing songs on my piano accordion so we can sing and dance our way through the year. I can’t wait!
Love Mrs Britton x
I love being a teacher because the children consistently deliver smiles and laughter through their small triumphs, amazing achievements and hilarious, insightful comments each and every day. The buzz of the whole class discussing a new topic; sharing what they already know and what they want to find out is awesome. However, the best moments come from children’s pride, excitement and increased confidence when they achieve something that they thought they couldn’t do. That is wonderful!
I am really looking forward to getting to know Yorkshire better ( I already know them a little from RWI and teaching the class next door); understanding what interests and inspires them and will help them to grow as learners.
I always expect the children in my class to do the best they can but this will be in an environment of everyone supporting each other; sharing our successes, helping each other when learning is tricky and laughing a lot.
Out of school I have a great family which includes my super husband, two lovely teenage daughters and our cute dog Nula. As a family we love cooking but my personal passion is cakes – making and eating them! To deal with the cake consumption I also spend a lot of time on long dog walks.
Love Mrs Allison x
