The Rabbit Team teaching assistant is Mrs Frearson
Our P.E. days are on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please make sure all children have got suitable indoor and outdoor PE clothes as we will be trying to go outside as much as possible to use our grounds.
Don't forget to bring a water bottle to school for your child to keep inside the classroom.

A visit from the local Fire station crew!
The Great Fire of London...as acted by Rabbit Class
We acted through the events of the Great Fire of London, looking at how the fire started, how it spread and how it eventually came to a stop. The team thought about how we could use our bodies and faces in different ways to show what was happening in each freeze-frame scene.
Pumpkin Soup making!
We have been enjoying our Doods lessons!
Our Visit to Maxey's Pumpkin Patch!
We had such a lovely afternoon at Maxey's Pumpkin Patch yesterday! The children enjoyed learning more about how pumpkins grow as well as how many pumpkin seeds the Maxey family sow...which is close to 5,000! We loved exploring the gigantic patch, looking at the different variety of pumpkins on show. The children also got a chance to visit the wood which was particularly spooky ready to celebrate Halloween. Have a look at our photos below and enjoy a visit yourself to pick a pumpkin from this weekend!
In Year 2 we are about enter a poetry competition all about riddles. We had a look at some riddles, trying to guess who they were about. The children decided to write their riddles about the characters in the Cinderella story. We started to look closely at the characters in Cinderella, thinking about adjectives to describe their qualities, as well as their appearance. We worked together in small groups to mind map ideas for our riddles about the characters. After this we started to have a go at writing our riddles, can you guess who they are about?
We know who! Cinderella!
After investigating our clues, we realised who had gone missing! It was Cinderella! We created our own missing posters to alert people that she had gone missing. We made sure we included important information about what she was wearing and where she was last seen.
After our missing posters, we thought about what questions we would like to ask Cinderella if we found her. The children came up with some excellent questions!
The start of a mystery! Who has gone missing?
We had a visitor from Ollerton Police Station this week asking for our help in a missing person investigation! Someone had gone missing and had been last seen at our school. Who was it? We investigated 5 different crime scenes hoping to find some clues towards who might have gone missing...
Our First Week!
Our first week together! September 2017
The children have really enjoyed their first week in the Rabbit classroom. We had a few nerves on the first day but the whole team have settled in so well, it's like they've always been there! During our week we have started to learn the different routines and expectations of being in Year 2. We looked at creating our classroom agreement as well as how we want to learn throughout the year.
We enjoyed our first Phonics and maths sessions of the year too. Hopefully this will carry on right until July!
