Puzzle It ! 12.01.18
The moorhens class took part in their first new Puzzle It lesson on Friday. This is where each class has an extended Maths lesson to investigate or problem solve an area of Maths.
We began on Friday, by taking it back to basics. We investigated numbers and puzzled over what we actually knew about the numbers 2 and 9.
We consolidated previous learning and built upon it, to apply what we knew about number, the four operations and comparing numbers.
We had a lot of fun and it turns out that we knew more than we thought we did. The children were very clever in their application.
They all said they really enjoyed working in different groups, getting to work with children that they don’t normally work with.
Fun In The snow!
We all enjoyed the snow that fell in December and were able to make the most of a very rare snow day!
But when we came back to school, there was still plenty left to enjoy : )
The school grounds looked beautiful covered in soft, fluffy, white snow.
“Hey Ewe!” – The Year Two Christmas Production.
Well done to all of the children and staff who worked so hard to make our Christmas production a huge success this year. The snow did not stop us……eventually performing our show and both performances were brilliant.
All of the children were in fine voice for our performances, remembered all of their lines and looked fabulous.
We even made it into The Herald.
Here are some photos from our show.
THE GREAT FIRE OF LONDON
Here are some photos from our Great Fire of London topic showing our ‘family groups’.
The children were put into family groups which represented different groups of people working in London in 1666. Some children were black smiths, some were butchers, chain makers, fishmongers and one group were green grocers.
They really enjoyed dressing up and experiencing life in London in the 17th Century. The children produced things as part of their family trade to understand what daily life was like.
DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY DAY 28/11/17
A big thank you to all the parents and other family members who came to our Design and Technology afternoon on Tuesday.
It was so nice to see so many of you there working with your children. There were some very impressive models of Stuart houses made. Well done everyone!
Many parents commented on what a lovely opportunity it was to work with their children. We are already planning our next open afternoon in the new year.
Thank you again.

Science – Investigating Materials 22/11/17
The Moorhens class enjoyed an exciting Science lesson today, exploring insulation.
We were trying to find an alternative material to make warm, winter gloves from.
We tested a range of different materials to see which one would be the best to make gloves.
We came to the conclusion that bubble wrap was the best material because it kept our hands warm, it was flexible and it was completely waterproof.
We cant wait for our next Science lesson next week!
Supertato To The Rescue! 20/10/17
What wonderful day we had on our superhero dress up day! After spending two weeks exploring the book “Supertato” by Sue Hendra, we spent a fabulous day being superheroes, writing our own Supertato stories and making Supertato models. If was great fun.
Year Visit To RAF Cosford.
Year 2 enjoyed a wonderful day at RAF Cosford recently.
We had a great time looking at planes old and new and exploring the interactive displays and exhibits.
We enjoyed taking part in a workshop to make parachutes and investigate which materials would be the best to make a parachute from and why.
We also made helicopter blades and tested to see whether length effected the way they perform.
We had a lovely day !
