Year 2 learn how to identify landmarks on a map

Spots, spots and more spots!

What a busy week we’ve had! The children are learning to swim and are a pleasure to take to Princes Risborough Leisure Centre and a credit to the school. It is lovely to watch their skills develop and become more confident. They were also beautifully behaved and respectful during the Remembrance service. They observed the minute’s silence and were reminded why they had bought a poppy or wrist band. We discussed how the money raised helps retired and current members of the Armed Forces. The Last Post played by Mr Wallace made it a moving assembly.

Katie Morag is proving to be a very popular topic and the children have enjoyed learning how to read the key on a map to identify landmarks. The Isle of Struay has a variety of features for the children to identify and label. Sadly it’s just too far away for our next school trip!

The teachers have enjoyed mentoring the children and have been impressed with how insightful and honest they have been. The chatty ones have owned up to talking too much, whilst others have considered what they need to do to improve and develop skills in particular subjects. A consistent theme is how happy the children are at school. The children have reflected on how they learn and what strengths they can develop.

Today has been the inaugural Children In Need Year 6 games afternoon. The children were very excited and delighted by the effort the year six children had gone to, to entertain them with a variety of activities in the hall. We hope the amount of money raised matched their enthusiasm!
