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 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
