Live Science Lesson: How are tractors connected to outer space? - March 2023
Year 2 joined a live science lesson organised by NFU 'How are tractors connected to outer space?. They found out about the different materials they were made from and why these materials were most suitable. They acted out some of the jobs tractors do on a farm and of course found out how tractors are connected to outer space!
Welcome to the trial of the Big Bad Wolf! - March 2023
Today, we were judge and jury as The Big Bad Wolf stood trial for his crimes.
The children became jury members and had to listen to the evidence put before them.
They listened to “The Wolf’s Story” (our new book by Toby Forward) and discussed his
version of events. The wolf said that he was grandma’s best friend! That he did jobs
around the house for her and looked after her! Then we looked at the evidence put
before us. A frayed red cape which looked like it had BITE marks and a basket full of fruit!
The same basket that the wolf had sworen contained sticky toffees…..
We then had a visit from a witness at the scene, poor old grandma! She told her side of the story
and the jury found lots of holes and suspicious parts that did not marry up with the wolf’s version!
After that, the jury discussed their findings and cast their verdicts. Jury member Rubio helped
Judge Peck to count the votes for innocent or guilty.
With a staggering 27- vote, the jury found the Wolf….GUILTY! He awaits his sentencing after our
lunch time, until we decide a worthy punishment.
We’ve had a GREAT morning and we will be using this experience to write a recount next week
all about the courtroom drama of the wolf.
Ash Wednesday - February 2023
Today we visited church for a special mass and to receive our ashes.
The children have discussed the symbols behind the ashes and how this marks our holy season of Lent.
Father Stephen explained to us how Lent is a special time for prayer and fasting.
We will be making our own “lent promises” today to see if we can keep them for 40 whole days.
We also watched this video before church to help explain the process.
Pancake Flipping - February 2023
Safe to say we’ve had a ball this morning with our pancake flipping competition! Many thanks to the school council children for organising it and to our school council representative Joshua for keeping score.
Well done to Jacob who won by a country mile in our class with 60 unbroken flips!! Even the staff couldn’t beat that!
PE Lesson: Treasure Hunt - February 2023
Yesterday’s PE lesson was absolutely fabulous! The children culminated their learning around orienteering in a treasure hunt around the junior playground! They had to use their map skills to find the correct Disney cards that had been hidden and we had a whale of a time . The children worked very well in teams and used great communication skills
The Plague - January 2023
Today we travelled back in time to 1665 to see what life in London was like during
The Plague! This lesson is the first in our sequence for The Great Fire of London
as it helps us to understand what life was like for people at the time of the fire.
The children found it hysterical that people in the past did not use toilets correctly!
They also couldn’t believe how people didn’t realise that washing hands would
stop germs from spreading!
We created a poster all about The Plague and we even sang a well known
song “Ring-a-ring o’ roses” and discussed the songs link to The Plague!
Definitely one of our more disgusting lessons so naturally, everyone had a great time.
NSPCC Assembly - January 2023
This morning the children attended a “speak out stay safe” assembly. This is run by the NSPCC and teaches children how they all have the right to speak out and stay safe. We made lists of our trusted adults who we can speak to if we feel upset and discussed things that aren’t ok such as hitting, bullying etc.
