World Down Syndrome Day 2019

Happy World Down Syndrome Day!

Today our school was brightened up by lots of colourful socks to help raise money for Andover Twenty1! We learned about Down Syndrome in assembly and celebrated difference together.

The idea of ‘Lots of Socks’ is that chromosomes look like socks under the microscope, and people with Down Syndrome have an extra chromosome.

Thank you to everyone who joined in and made a donation!

World Book Day

On Thursday we dressed up as our favourite story characters for World Book Day! Our day began with sharing our amazing costumes and talking about our characters.  After a story themed lunch, we drew our own London skyline book marks to take home and to use in our World Book Day books.  What an amazing day we enjoyed!

Can you guess who we are in the photos?  If you dressed up then who would you like to be?

Year 2 visit to The Children's Orchestra

Year 2 were very lucky to travel to Southampton on a huge coach to see The Children’s Orchestra.  The children were captivated by the talented musicians, the flamboyant conductor and the skilful magician who linked the performance together.

Emilia’s favourite part was the end because the children got to sing a song called ‘It’s an Ark’ and they had to keep singing BANG SAW THUMP CRASH. Barnaby liked the loud noises because he loves loud things.  They were amazing!  The last instrument that entered the concert hall was the loudest.  Ava Mae liked it when all the violins were playing together because it was happy music and it made her feel happy.  Cameron and Myla liked the magician because he was funny and very clever.

Roald Dahl Puppets

Look at our lovely Roald Dahl Puppets.

Project 215

Come and see our Year 2 soldier at Vigo Road Recreation Ground on 10th November. He represents one of the 215 soldiers from Andover who were killed during World War 1. We decorated our soldier with pastel drawings of the trenches and labels showing the gifts the children would have sent to the soldiers.

Year 2 Roald Dahl Day

Year 2 enjoyed a special Roald Dahl day when they dressed up as their favourite Roald Dahl characters and took part in an Enormous Crocodile drama workshop. 

This then gave them some ideas for their puppet designs.  They worked very hard to plan their paper patterns for their puppets.
