Welcome to Sapphire Class!

 Welcome to Year 2!

PE
PE is on TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY afternoon. Please ensure your child has their full PE kit every week. 
 
TOPIC - The Scented Garden
 
Tiptoe through the tulips as your senses discover the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs.  Round and round the mulberry bush we go planting seeds and bulbs and then watch them grow beneath sunshine and showers.
 
Explore the astounding world of the scented garden, but be careful, there are some wild and dangerous plants out there that do astonishing things - just don't touch!
 
Use the marvellous properties of plants, flowers and herbs to make an exceptional gift for somebody special.  Everything is coming up roses!  Why not grow your own?
