Key Stage One Drama Session - Auditions for the Christmas Production!


Today (Monday 13th November) we began our drama work for our Christmas Production.  We aren't giving away any spoilers just yet, but it is sure to be a spectacular show! All of the children in Team Malala and Team Elizabeth II had a wonderful time working together and getting into character.  Check out some of the pictures below!

Halloween comes early to Year 2!


We have been reading 'Winnie the Witch' by Valerie Thomas and 'The Jolly Witch' by Dick King-Smith over the last two weeks and we decided to have a little fun and make some witches of our own.  What do you think?  We really enjoyed making them!

Exploring Autumn in the School Grounds!


The children in Team Elizabeth II have been exploring the school grounds to look at the different types of plants we have and how they are changing at this time of year.  We found lots of Evergreen and Deciduous plants and we enjoyed collecting things that showed all the different colours we can see in nature all around us.  We think that Autumn is a very pretty time of year!

Year 2's fabulous PARACHUTE afternoon!


We decided to have a change in PE today and we used the big parachute to play some fun games.  The children all worked together to get the parachute to do different things and there were lots of smiling faces in Team Elizabeth II!


"Playing Cat and Mouse was fun," said Archie.

"My favourite part was when we played Chinese Whispers under the big bubble," said Ria.

"It was like a big balloon!" said Kaleb.

"When we swapped places, it was fun," said Imogen. 

Parachute Fun!

We are very fortunate at Springfield to be part of a scheme that involves the children brushing their teeth every day.  Just look at the fun we're having!

Bestwood Country Park.


What an awesome day we had!  The weather was fantastic. Everyone remembered their teddy and we all got to go exploring in the woods.  We completed some great activities; looking at the tops of trees using mirrors, making a paint palette of nature's colours, creating smelly tea for the Teddy Bear's picnic and building all our teddies an island which had all the things needed to survive: Shelter, food, water and air.  

A big thank you to everyone who made it such a special day.  Adults and children alike.

Year 2 and some of Year 3 had a fantastic time at Wollaton Park.  

All the children enjoyed all of the activities and they were a pleasure to take.

Looking forward to our trip to Bestwood Country Park on 5th July 2017.
