Land Ahoy!

Darwin class have been making some wonderful boats to sail on the open seas! Set the sail and off we go...

World Book Day 2018
Pupils in Darwin and Nightingale classes dressed up as characters from the two books we are studying this term: 'The Night Pirates' by Peter Harris and Debora Allwright
                   'Able Seacat Simon' by Lynne Barrett-lee
Fantastic costumes from cats to pirates and Jolly Rogers to full pirate ships! Very well done and
'Land Ahoy me Hearties!'

Our NEW topic for Block 3 is 'Land Ahoy!'

Our Class Garden

Darwin and Nightingale have created a shaded garden full of ferns, ornamental grasses and other shade loving plants. The pupils made rainbow stones, painted pots and up-cycled some old wellie boots to make creative flower pots.  

We bounced different balls on the playground, filmed them and slowed them down many times. Watch how it squashes as it hits the floor. Wow!

Here are the links to the songs your child is learning for this year's nativity play 'A Gift'. The words have been sent home so you can sing them around the house! If you need copies of the words, please come in and ask.




Our topic for Block 2 is BOUNCE!

How far can a ball bounce? What makes bouncy castles so bouncy? Where do Kangaroos live? Can you make a bouncy ball in Science? Could you make bubbles that bounce? Who was Beatrix Potter?
Let's all find out...

Paddington visited Darwin and Nightingale classes today with a suitcase containing a secret! We discovered an orange, wooden spoon, sugar and a recipe for marmalade. All children helped to make a big batch of marmalade which we then tried on bread in the afternoon. Yum!

We are learning about Samuel Pepys and The Great Fire of London.

In this week's Science, we peeked in the snail habitats we made and left out in the school grounds last week. Look what we discovered!

We have been discussing what makes us proud in Darwin class. We then made a 'Proud Cloud' with all our ideas!

This term, our assemblies are all about PRIDE. Look at this writing from Year 2 that we are all very proud of!
A newspaper front page and poetry about the Great Fire of London.
