Year 2F News

The Year 2 boys had a busy and enjoyable Summer Term. The highlight being our first Year 2/ Year 12 collaboration, where the boys, big and small, challenged themselves to build a tower out of spaghetti and marshmallows in order to support the weight of an egg.

Another major event involved meeting the awesome Jacqueline Harvey, the author of, 'Kensy and Max'. Many of the boys wanted to become authors or spies following the presentation as she was fantastic!

We hit the ground running in Autumn Term with preparation for our Mother's Day assembly. The boys were excited to present a special poem and song for their mothers, while a slide show featuring newborn photos and current photos of boys with their mums, certainly surprised them on the big screen. We aren't sure how many dry eyes there were on the day!

We hope all the mums loved their hand drawn key-rings and a big thank you to our pre-service teacher Olivia Jacobsen, for working with us so tirelessly to have them ready for the special day.
