Roald Dahl Day 
On Thursday 17th Spetember we celebrated Roald Dahl day by dressing up as our favourite characters from one of his books. Children looked amazing all their wonderful costume and enjoyed a day full of Roald Dahl themed activities. 
We drew along with Quentin Blake, creating fantastic pictures of the BFG, Willy Wonka and an Oompa loopma. 
We also designed some amazing pheasant catching traps inspired by the book 'Danny Champion of the World'. 
National Poetry Day

We learnt the poem 'Incy's Revenge' and wrote our own stanzas. 
We also explored acrostic poems, creating our own following the theme of kindness. 
In Year 2, we have created harvest baskets to celebrate harvest. We used our cutting, painting and joining skills whilst crafting.
