Cat, Bramble and Heron
Once upon a time, there were three friends called Cat, Bramble and Heron who lived by a lake.
Early one morning, they went out to seek their fortune.
First, Bramble slithered through the grass but all that he found was a pot as black as coal. Next, Cat crept along by the wall but all that he found was an old fishbone. Finally, Heron flew down the creek where he saw a pile of gold.
So, Heron, Cat and Bramble shared the gold into not one, not two but three bags. They decided to hide their fortune.
First, Heron spread out his wings, took the bag in his beak and flew away. Unfortunately, he saw his reflection in the water below. He called out, “Hello,” and as soon as he opened his beak, the gold scattered down like leaves from a tree.
Next, Cat crept along the wall and paused by a small hole. Unfortunately, Mr Mouse crept out and stole Cat’s gold.
Finally, Bramble slithered along the hedgerows. Unfortunately, Mr Mouse crept by and stole Bramble’s bag of gold.
To this very day, Cat is still waiting outside Mr Mouse’s hole.
To this very day, Bramble hisses and slithers around the legs of passers-by.
To this very day, Heron is standing still in the water forever staring and looking for his lost bag of gold.
Year Two were lucky enough to have a special visitor. The Fire service came into to talk to the children about keeping safe in the home. The children learnt the importance of fire safety, how to keep themselves safe and what to do in an emergency. Riley even had a go at being a fire fighter. As always, Year Two were amazing and received two compliment clips for their manners and fab behaviour.
What an incredible trip we all had at Marwell Zoo. The children were amazing had had an absolute ball. The children we able to get up close to many incredible animals, some of which are endangered. The children were really engaged to observe each and every animal that they saw. The children made some incredible observations and asked some well-considered questions about the well-being and origins of the animals they saw. Some of the children had a go at being a rhino, flamingo and a wallaby, Mr Wood was pretty bad at most of them
Dear Parents, below is a list of words that your child will be learning to read and spell over the year. They are a mixture of words that we encourage children to use in their writing and they are often misspelt. Along with reading at home, it would really help your child if they could practise these at home. We will continue to assess each child every week and send home weekly spellings in their reading wallets.
If you would like any help, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will support where we can.
Thank you, from Year Two.
