These are our spellings for this term. Children should learn these at home and will be tested on them each Tuesday afternoon. They will also practice these each day at school.
There is also a list of the Year 1 and 2 High Frequency words that all children should also be familiar with.
We recently went on our school trip to Ribchester, where we visited the old village church, saw some Roman ruins and walked along the river. We had a fabulous time on the park over lunch time and went to the Museum in the afternoon. As you can see from the photos we tried on some Roman armour and looked at some original artefacts. We also visited the shop and bought some souvenirs of our fabulous visit. Finally we all had a delicious ice-cream, which we most definitely enjoyed!!
Last week we planted some saplings around the school grounds, with some children from Year 1. We will look forward to seeing these grow into big, strong trees.
This week we went on a visit around St.Annes as part of our local area study in History and Geography. We saw lots of different buildings and learnt about the history of them and of our town. Amongst the places we visited were, Ashton Gardens, the old Palace Cinema, the bandstand (where we had a snack and a drink), several churches and the council offices. We all learned something new about our town and we even got a banana from the kind people at the Food Bank who had some extra!! We even got to look around the Masonic Hall!
This week in school was World Book Day. Everyone dressed up and had a great day. We had some historical characters, some animals and even some YouTubers!! It was good to see so many children taking part and showing us how important books are to them.

We have been taking part in the Run a Mile scheme and every time we ran a lap of the playground we collect a cube. Some of us were quicker than others, but we all took part and ran so that we were out of breath!! Great exercise for us and helps get our brains ready to learn!

This week we have been looking at our new Topic, The StoneAge, and wondering what we would ask a Stoneage child if we could talk to them.

Well done Taylor!
Last Friday was Children In Need day and Pudsey Bear came to see us. We all went a bit spotty!
