Many congratulations to George who has won top prize in the Somerset Literacy Network Poetry Competition.

Five other members of the class, Sebi, Nicole, Holly, Evie and Max also won highly commended certificates.

All will have their prizes awarded to them at a Poetry Slam at Dillington House in early June.

Well done to the whole class for their poems, which were of a really high standard!


We are really looking forward to our climbing of the church tower on Thursday 25th May after the Ascension Day service. This is a great tradition for year 2 children and their parents and offers fantastic views of the village.


The second half of term is looking really busy for the year 2 children!

The week we return not only starts with an INSET day on Monday but our poets will be at Dillington House on the Tuesday and the whole class will be at Frogmary Green Farm on Friday for their open schools day.


The following week we will be at Stanchester School on Tuesday morning for a puzzle challenge.

It seems that there is something happening each week before the end of term...more details to follow.
