  2. 2. Reception’s Bird Feeders Louis Sumner and Taylor McNulty noticed that the bird feeders were empty. They were very concerned for the welfare of the birds in the wooded area and asked their teachers if they could make some bird feeders so that the birds wouldn’t be hungry. Pictured here are the children with the bird feeders that they had so much fun making. Bag Packing Our next bag packing event, to raise money for our Arts Festival, is due to take place at Morrisons Saturday 5th March.

The closing date for online entries is Friday 3rd of March. Please make sure you visitthe Radio 2 website and read all the terms and conditions at HYPERLINK " 500-words/" Yr 2 Topic Poems Year 2 children have continued to impress us with their fantastic poems based on their topic work. The sky at night is extremely dark. The white moon shines in the blackness like a giant torch and gives us light every night. The stars are big and twinkly but when its cloudy they are hard to see. Sometimes you can see a shooting star flying across the sky. Its a long way away and doesnt make any noise. Looking at the sky at night is amazing and beautiful and makes us feel happy and peaceful.
