We would like to say a very big THANK YOU to everyone who has so very kindly donated a new book to our school library!
As you can see there are so many different titles both fiction and non-fiction which the children are definitely going to enjoy in September!
We have had an amazing Dinosaur Week, concluding with a fantastic visit from Teach Rex. We learnt lots of interesting facts about dinosaurs from the awe inspiring Joe, Sam and Jam! We also became movie stars, creating our very own Green Screen dinosaur movies!
Grand re-opening of Borough Hill recreation ground.
Guinness World Record Attempt!
We all had a fantastic time trying to set a new Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously hugging a soft toy. We think we have smashed the current record by hugging 373 toys for 1 minute and 3 seconds! It was very exciting to have television and radio reporters filming and interviewing us and a special celebratory, Dr Radha Modgil from CBeebies! Big thanks to Barnardo’s and everyone involved for making this such a successful event.
Listen to our World Record attempt:

The Big Battery Hunt!
Look how many batteries we have managed to collect as part of The Big Battery Hunt’.
The Big Battery Hunt is a nationwide battery recycling initiative funded by Duracell. Young people in schools across the UK are encouraged to think about the importance of recycling, and then challenged to collect as many used batteries as they can. The aim is for each pupil to contribute to an overall total of 4 million batteries being recycled. Well done everyone!
Henry Crew came back to see us all!
Henry came to visit us last April before he set off around the world on his motorbike. He is now the youngest person to have circumnavigated the globe by motorbike and hopes to be in the next Guinness Book of Records. Henry brought his motorbike into the hall and showed the children photographs of some of the places he visited. Year 2 children stayed in the hall a little longer to ask Henry lots of interesting questions!
Henry is raising money for Movember and you can find out more about his trip on his website: www.35000miles.com or on his Instagram page
We were invited by Petersfield Library to have a display in the Children’s Area – when you visit to change your books, please take a look at the most amazing artwork of the children in Year 2!
