‘OFF WITH THEIR HEADS’

This week Year 2 were visited by a very angry Queen of Hearts who thought Alice had stolen her jam tarts! Year 2 held a trial to find out if she was guilty. They split into 2 groups, the defendants and the prosecutors. They collected their evidence and the trial began!

Many children changed their opinions on whether or not she was guilty after hearing all of the arguments and evidence during the debate.

Finally, just as the jury were about to give the decision, the trial was stopped when new evidence was found and the jam tarts were returned to the Bossy Queen!

Our first week in Year 2

This week we moved up into YEAR 2! We settled in very quickly and got to work learning spellings in strange places! We were intrigued to find out why a crayon box had been abandoned by the crayons in our classroom. Worse still, we found the wrapper of Peach Crayon who we believe has now…Read More

They eat all of the food, litter the world and breathe hot air everywhere! After reading the story we also looked at a different story from CAFOD, ‘Laudato Si’ , a message from…Read More
