What a fabulous half term this has been. It has been so lovely to see all of the children so engaged in our topic Towers, Turrets and Tunnels.
After our visit to Colchester Castle at the very beginning of the half term, we have found out so much about life in castles in History. We have also learnt where in the world we will find some interesting castles and towers in Geography. We have had the most amazing time in Design and Technology as we have built our own castles with towers and a working drawbridge.
It was lovely to see so many parents take the opportunity to come in after school today see our castles and to witness the children’s enthusiasm for their learning.
We look forward to next term when our topic is Scented Gardens, when we will see if we have any green fingered children amongst Year 2!
Wow! What a busy week we have had, it was fabulous to see so many parents, grandparents and other relatives at our assembly on Wednesday.
What a tremendous achievement the children accomplished with their assembly. We think you will agree with all of the Year 2 team that the children displayed such confidence as well projecting their voices to tell the audience about their learning so far this year You wouldn’t believe that they had only had three practices before the final performance. We are so lucky to have these children at Lawford Mead!
Then on Friday we had our World Book Day Take Two!
It was so lovely to see such enthusiasm the children had when reading with Year 4 and Year 5.
The older children really engaged the year twos with their expression and love of reading.
For World Book Day as a year group we made our own comic strips, after watching our CCTV of the ‘Lawford Mead Invisible Thief’ who has been caught stealing items from classrooms and snatching books not only from the library but even as some of our children were reading!
Have you been able to track down the thief? If you know his or her identity please let Mr Poyton know.
We hope you had as much fun as we did. Please tell us your favourite part of the day?
