Talk for Writing stories

The children used the structure of There’s a Rang-tan in My Bedroom to create their own story. Here are two examples.


The children wrote letters to persuade companies to stop destroying the rainforest for the production of palm oil.

Rainforest Diorama

We made a diorama showing the 4 layers of the rainforest (Forest Floor, Understory, Canopy, Emergent).

Rainforest Animals

The children used pastels or watercolour paint to create animals for our rainforest display.

Year 2’s Residential to Kingswood

Year 2 visited the Kingswood Centre in West Runton for their one night residential trip. The children were able to take part in activities such as abseiling, rock climbing, bouldering (sideways wall climbing), laser games and low rope (trust and team building) activities. They also sang around a campfire whilst drinking hot chocolate and eating marshmallows. The children had an incredible time and many were proud of their achievements. Some conquered their fear of heights, or tried some new food, whilst others were proud to be away from home for the very first time.

Key Stage 1 Multiskills Festival

The children of Year 2 had a great morning participating in the cluster multiskills festival. Children from all the cluster schools took part and had a really fun morning, despite the cold and damp weather. Many thanks to the students from Broadland High School for running each activity and thanks also to Miss Sewell for arranging the event.

Year 2 Making Gingerbread

The children really enjoyed making the gingerbread in preparation for our gingerbread houses for our gingerbread village. Thank you to all those who volunteered to help and the SJSA for organising this event.
