We have had a great week in Base 2, showing what we have learnt so far and applying our learning in a range of contexts.

On Monday afternoons, year 2 are taking part in a sequence of boxing sessions delivered by Sportscape to develop their fitness, discipline and understanding of the sport. The children are very much enjoying this opportunity.

On Thursday, the children arrived at school very excited because we were going to the Sea Life Centre to learn about different sea creatures. We had a great day and the children represented our school very well. We had mini sketch books and had to choose different animals, draw a picture of it, write down its name, find out what habitat it lives in and what it eats. We saw some amazing fish including a Green Moray Eel that was 2 metres long and Japanese Spider Crabs with a leg span of up to 18 feet! Following our trip, the children were very excited to write about the day, recording all of their favourite parts and creatures.

Next week is out final week of Spring term, where has the time gone? We will be finishing off some of our Learning Journey work which involves making boats!

I was impressed with how well the children used the...

We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...

Mrs Holdsworth: Fri 14 Jun 4:34pm

We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
