Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Our Class

                    We are all Unique

In Year Two we have been admiring the natural world around us and how amazing and beautiful it is. We have discovered that many natural objects are unique. We went around the school and looked at the different leaves on the trees. We found out that no two leaves are exactly the same. That is because each leaf is unique just like each member of our class is unique. We discussed how we are unique as a person.

               Exploring Our Emotions

We have been exploring our emotions and discussing both positive and negative feelings.


I am happy because it is so close to my Birthday. Sarthak


I am happy because my mum gives me sweets. Donnie


What makes me angry is when I don't get my way. Daniel


I am happy because I see my mum at school. Lacey


I feel happy because I am at school. Kiera


I feel angry when someone hurts me.Wilf


Cuddles from my mum and dad make me feel happy. Amber


We listened to the story 'No Matter What' written by Debi Gliori. The character Small in this story discovers that Large will love him no matter what.


God loves us no matter what....

God is love, whoever lives in love, lives in God and God is in them. John 4:10


We had great fun showing the different emotions that we can sometimes feel with our faces.

                    Different Feelings


We have been learning how to deal with different feelings, particularly negative ones. We enjoyed listening to the story of 'Joseph and his Coloured Coat'. We discussed the different feelings and emotions Joseph would have felt. We also talked about times when we have felt some of these feelings.


Joseph's 'coat of many colours' was a representation of God's 'light of many colours'.

Genesis 37.3


These are the words that Year Two used to describe Joseph's different feelings.
