What an exciting week it's been!
We have enjoyed sharing our previous Andy Goldsworthy homework with our peers and going outside to create some outdoor art. Take a look at some of the art below:
We also enjoyed a special assembly from a visitor who told us all about the celebration of Diwali. To any of Year Two who are celebrating this weekend we wish you a Happy Diwali!
The Year Two teachers also enjoyed meeting with parents this week during our consultations. We hope you found this a good opportunity to discuss your child with your class teacher.

What an exciting week we've had! We started off by enjoying a fantastic Grandparents Morning. The children loved showing our visitors round and performing a short assembly to them. Tuesday was of course our exciting trip to Ashridge woods! We had an amazing time searching for minibeasts and learning about their environment as well as building dens. Here are some of our photos:
 
 
 We also have enjoyed our RE lesson where we have begun making our shoebox scenes from the paralyzed man.
 
Please could we remind all parents that toys are not allowed in school. If children have toys they will be kept by the teacher until the end of the day.
