Welcome back! And what great weather to return to! The children have really enjoyed all the lovely sunshine during our first week back. It would be a good idea to send the children in a hat and apply sun cream on warmer days.

We have launched straight into our new topic, 'Amazing Animals' and may I say how very very impressed I am with all the fabulous animal models that have been made over the holidays! We have an array of safari animals, arctic animals and sea creatures. They do look truly amazing! Thank you for supporting your child in making them. Some of the children have already given their short talks about their animals and have really tried hard not to read their notes but talk about their animal so please continue to practise if your child hasn't done their talk yet.

In Literacy this week we have looked at some ways in which we can make notes about animals — spider diagrams and fact files. We have learnt some really interesting facts about elephants. Did you know they have two 'fingers' at the end of their trunk so that they can pick up food?

In numeracy we have been counting in 2's, 5's 10's and 3's. We found a great way to work out if a number is in the pattern of 3. Add the two digits of a number together and if it equals 3,6 or 9 then it 's a multiple of 3! We have also been looking at 2 digit numbers and working out which is the higher number and lower number.

In music the children were introduced to playing the recorder by Mrs Pascall, who did an amazing job on Wednesday! 25 children playing the recorder is a real challenge and I was pleasantly surprised to hear how fantastic they sounded. Thank you to Mrs Pascall for doing such a wonderful introduction. We also listened to the elephant section in' Carnival of the animals' and started our sketching of elephants.

Hopefully the children have been telling you lots of facts about Africa which is our geography focus and we learnt a song which helps us to remember the 7 continents.

One of our P.E days has changed. P.E. will now be taught on Wednesday morning and Friday afternoon so please ensure that your child has their P.E kit in school.

As you can see, another busy week! Year 2 parents will now have the Tattenhall Residential letter. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask me at the gate but we will be holding an information meeting to answer any further questions. Have a lovely weekend and let's hope the sunshine returns next week.

Mrs Chapman-Brown and Mrs Everall

It was brilliant to be back participating in Crewe and Nantwich Townsports this week. Our Y6s last took part as Y3s so it was lovely for them to be part of the event again before heading to high school. Our Wrenbury and Sound team found itself in Group A (premiership!) and after two nights of track and field events we finished 9th out of 11 teams in Group A with a further two divisions taking...
