Year 2 Zoo Excursion

Due to inclement weather conditions the Year 2 Zoo excursion has been rescheduled. The new date for the excursion is Friday 28 August. Parents will not need to send in consent for the change of date; however, those parents that had offered to accompany the groups will need to confirm with the class teachers if they are still available. Thank you for your support.

Cross Country

The Year 2 students were excited to join in the Cross Country running last week. Some of the comments after the event from Year 2 students are below.

I think the fun run was fun because I liked doing the obstacles and I liked getting a sticker after every lap.” Hannah

“I liked collecting the stickers and I got fit. It was so much fun!” Zara

“It was fine until I got to the 3rd lap and then I got puffed out.” Felix

“I liked the fun run because I ran 500m five times. I got to run with my friends from the other Year 2 class. It was probably the best run ever!” Alex

“The fun run was so fun. At the end I was so tired, but I would do it again. Thank you for letting us join in.” Viv

Thank you to Huw Bowen, Head of Sport, for organising the event and including our Year 2 students.

Book Week Parade

On Thursday 27 August the ELC-Year 2 students will be celebrating Book Week by dressing up and parading their costumes from 8.45am -9.30am. Dancify instructors will be helping the students to showcase the dance steps they have been learning during these lessons. The theme this year is ‘Curious Creatures, Wild Minds’. ELC students have been designing their own Curious Creature costumes in class to wear on the day if they wish. Students in Reception to Year 2 are encouraged to make their costumes at home, enjoying the process of creating something fun from a book that they enjoy. With regards to the venue, we are anticipating holding this in Wyatt Hall and inviting parents to join in to observe the fun. However, closer to the date an alternative may be that we will hold this event outdoors, weather permitting.

Pulteney Storybook Series

Each Friday we share a storybook online read by one of our Pulteney staff members or students. Storytelling helps to build connections among people and improves listening skills that are essential in learning and in relationships. We hope your family enjoys listening to the books selected each week by members of our school community. This week, you can view Head of Wellbeing, Steven McCullouch share a book titled ‘When Henry Caught Imaginitus’ by Nick Bland here.
