World Culture Week February 2018

Victorian Day at John Clifford
Trip to Newstead Abbey

Happy Diwali!

 

On Thursday 19th October to finish off the topic on India, YR2 celebrated Diwali. The children have been finding out about life in India and the story of Rama and Sita, which is the reason people celebrate Diwali.

The children were split into four teams and took part in Indian Stick dancing, food tasting (curry, poppadums, naan bread and mango chutney), making paper plate divas, and having henna mehndi patterns drawn onto their hands (thank you Mrs Ifill)

The afternoon was finished off with a mass Bollywood style dance. Thanks to all the staff and parents who came to help and dressed up for the afternoon.

Reading in Year 2

Picture 1

At John Clifford, we believe that reading is very important. We allow the children to engage in reading in a number of ways, including:

 

- daily whole class story time

- children being able to choose their own reading book

- open reading mornings and afternoons

- reading buddy classes

- guided reading sessions

- access to a range of text types in the classrooms for children to choose to read. 

 

We ask that to support your child with their reading that you read with them at least three times a week at home. For each time your child reads at home, they are rewarded with a class bee token to put towards their hive total. 

 

We are always looking out for reading volunteers too to help read with children at school. If you have the time to spare, please see Mrs Hawker who will be able to give you some more information.
