Be kind online- Be kind all the time!

A lovely activity to get us thinking about how to be kind online Owl class.

Selsdon Year 2

In relation to this week’s thought of the week, the Owls discussed how to be kind towards others, when communicating online, as well as in person. We decided to write some kind words to our classmates to let them know something that we really liked about them, or to express how thankful we are to have them in our lives. It’s always great to hear a compliment coming from one of your classmates, but its also very important to return the gesture, saying something kind right back to them! This activity left the Owls smiling from ear to ear! Can you think of any other ways we can spread kindness throughout the school?

Young Voices at the O2

yv

Last night 7805 children sang in the Young Voices choir at the O2 Arena, which included 26 children from Selsdon senior choir.  As well as singing a variety of well known and original songs, they also sang backing vocals for Katie Melua, Lamar and Ben Haenow!

The children performed fantastically and behaved beautifully – a real credit to Selsdon Primary.  I know that many parents were able to come up and watch and had a great evening.  A big thank you to Mrs Burcombe for organising and rehearsing the many songs with the children and to Mrs Edmunds for her enthusiastic participation.

The children were: Abigail Ackah, Chernor Barry, Henry Chase, Kayleigh Chase, Melissa Gordon, Rebecca Kiyanga, Amelia Madgett, Molly Milne-Day, Emmanuella Oteng-Hene, Adjiewaa Owusu, Siya Shah, Sophie Wilson, Sofija Abramjana, Lara Alkan, Judith Ango, Mishka Benjamin, Rhianna Cork, Rileigh Hart, Sarah Hossenbux, Chloe Izard, Kuba Klimkowski, Rueben Kpeglo, Gladys Mulegwa, Martha Nankunda, Chloe Robinson-Kirkham and Charlie Turner.

Owls Crime Scene

Selsdon Year 2

The Year 2 classes are on the case to solve the mysterious crime that happened over the weekend at Selsdon Primary! We are taking on the role of journalists to ask witnesses and prepare questions that can help in cracking the case! Here are a few photos of the crime scene as well as the Owls hard at work investigating this terrible vandalism!

EXTRA, EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT!!!!!

Something strange is going on in Year 2….

Selsdon Year 2

Today, something terrible has happened! A crime occurred in our sweet, unsuspecting school and the Metropolitan Police have asked our Year 2 children to help solve the mystery. There is very little information but the children will be working night and day to solve this horrendous crime!

Today it was question day? Children used the W5H ( when, who, what, where, why and how) to write questions to help them solve the crime.

Here are a few pictures and a video of the crime scene.
