School Councillors

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 4:00pm

Swallows took to the stage to perform as part of a vote to represent their year group on the School Council. The children who chose to write a speech, presented their arguments really well to the audience with clear and loud voices. There were some fantastic points raised about explaining strengths AND weaknesses, young politicians in the making!

The day the crayons returned

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:59pm

This morning, Swallows Class and Eagles Class enjoyed exchanging their persuasive letters with each other. There was some great expression used when children were reading aloud and some very convincing arguments were made for the crayons to return! The Year 6’s were really impressed with some of our children’s letters and the Y3’s enjoyed performing them.

The Day the Crayons Quit

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:58pm

We’ve had a wonderful start to life in Y2 and can’t wait to see all of the exciting learning that will be taking place this year!

First landing on the moon

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:52pm

Continuing our Science topic on space, we watched the first landing on the moon. We discussed facts about Neil Armstrong and how, because there is no weather on the moon, his footprints are still on the surface of the moon. We then created our own ‘moon footprints’ using salt dough.

World Book Day

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:51pm

What a wonderful but busy World Book Day. Today we have enjoyed painting potatoes to look like our favourite book characters, had a couple of DEAR (Drop everything and read) moments, we got treated to Starlings coming in and reading to us and telling us about their books. We then took part in a World Book Day catwalk including the whole school and after all that some parents/ grandparents came in to read with their children and make some book marks! Thank you to all who attended the children really loved it, as shown in the pictures 🙂

Wash, wash, wash your hands

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:50pm

Today we have looked at washing our hands properly using the steps given on Newsround. We have learned the correct way to wash our palms, in between our fingers and even our thumbs. All this is done to the ‘happy birthday’ song which lasts 20 seconds (the period of time we should be washing our hands for).

Moon landing

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:49pm

This afternoon, we have explored some more facts about the moon. We watched the first moon landing and discovered that despite it happening over 50 years ago, the footprints are still there! So we created the first steps on the moon in salt dough ready for baking and displaying.

Flipping Pancakes!

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:47pm

We really enjoyed the challenging of  ‘flipping a pancake!’.

The children showed good resilience with this tricky task.  They just kept trying again until they achieved their goal!


Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:47pm

This week we have been looking at length and height. We’ve discussed what we can measure in and have mainly been measuring using centimetres. The children helped Miss Woodward measure things around the classroom, we even tried our hand at a bit of estimation!

Enrichment afternoon

Thank you to all the parents who came this afternoon for our kindness enrichment, the children has a great time and really appreciated it.

Washing our hands properly

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:45pm

This morning we watched Newsround and saw how we can wash our hands properly. We know it is important to wash our hands to make sure we don’t spread coughs and colds. Now we know to wash our hands for 20seconds and to sing ‘happy birthday’ so we know how long to wash for.

This afternoon we all had a practise!

Kindness Week

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:45pm

This week is Kindness week and as part of this we have been doing a random act of kindness on each days. Yesterday we made a friendship web to demonstrate how if the we are not kind to our friends, the bonds of friendship could be weakened. The web turned out to be strong enough to hold an item as well.

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:44pm

Today is Safer Internet Day, so to promote this the children had a discussion on what they could do to stay safe online. We had some really good ideas!

The moon
