Wider World Week
Last week our chosen country was India and we learned lots of new facts about this interesting and vibrant country. The week was rounded off with a whole school assembly when each class told us facts about the country they had been studying. Our class showed the Indian flag and some Indian art work and rounded off our session with some Bollywood style dancing to Jai Ho which really made everyone feel happy. Well done to the whole class.
Earlier in the day we had a visit from Annette's uncle who read the class a story in Italian. The children listened beautifully.
Busy, busy, busy
We hope you have enjoyed learning about Roald Dahl as we studied his book The Twits. We did lots of writing and art work centred on the book. This week we have started on our topic of Castles which will continue after the holidays.
This week we are also learning about India, it's customs, traditions and lots of interesting facts about this fascinating subcontinent.
Parents are invited to our homework celebration on Wednesday 7th March at 2.45pm. We look forward to seeing you in class.
Happy New Year!
Welcome back to school for the Spring term. We hope you enjoyed the break and are looking forward to the exciting things we have got planned.

We are really looking forward to Christmas and we are doing lots of Christmas activities, as well as busily rehearsing for our Christmas show!
We have been really lucky and had some exciting visitors to school today - Santa and 2 of his reindeer came to Sudley Infants, can you believe it? He even brought us a bag full of amazing presents, Mrs Bosworth very kindly let us open them rather than having to wait until Christmas!
This week we started our topic about Underground. Included in this we learned about the Great Fire of London. The children were all very interested to learn about how such a small fire grew so big and spread so quickly doing such a lot of damage.
On Friday we had visitors from the NSPCC who gave us a talk about how we can keep ourselves safe and that if we have a problem we must tell an adult.
This week we look forward to our visit to IM Marsh campus on a science trip and Jill Reynolds who will be coming in to show us her animals.
Last week was our music study focus week. We learned about one man bands and were introduced to the singer Leo Sayer- parents or grandparents will know who this is!
We had a great music session playing the class percussion instruments.
A past pupil of the school Sophie, came in and talked to us about her job in the Cirque de soleil in Las Vegas. It was so interesting to find out about a job she loves and that had been her ambition from being a small child. So inspirational!
Next week we have an assembly being led by the NSPCC Finches class have chosen this charity to raise funds during our school charity week- the last week of half term. Watch out for letters in book bags.
Remember to bring in your outdoor PE kits and make sure yur name is in all belongings- including lunchbags.
Library start next week on Fridays so make sure you return your book on time to change it every week.
The children have really settled well into Year 2 and are working really hard. Well done!

What a busy start to the term it has been!
We found out about our class bird-the Finch. Did you know that the Linnet is actually a type of Finch? Look at the RSPB web page to find out more-the link is at the top of the page.
We have spent time helping our Buddies in Reception settle into school. They all look so small-we are sure that we couldn't have ever been that small!
We have been setting a good example to the other children in school as we have been the class with the most marks in the Best Behaviour Book.
Already this term we have found out a little bit about the artist Banksy and saw some of his work. Orla brought her dad's book about the artist in for us to look at.
As we are now in Year 2 we have a lot more responsibilities around the school and do lots of jobs including collecting registers and being a door monitor.
Congratulations to our elected school council members William, Zachary, Joshua and Esha. We are sure you will be great representatives of our class.
