We love our summer showcase!

Year 2 has flown by so fast. People say that time flies when you are having fun and it really has!

I am really proud of you all, your hard work and determination. We have had great moments and adventures along the way.

Good luck in Year 3 all of you.

We love being outlaws!

 

Year 2 had a fantastic day at Beaumanor Hall yesterday, the weather was perfect and so was the behaviour of the children. They all took part in a Robin Hood Survival day and plenty of adventure was had by all. We made amazing Robin Hood hats using natural materials from the woods that Phillip Treacy would have been proud of. Then the class went on a woodland walk hiding from the Sheriff of Nottingham and collecting up the wanted posters before anyone got caught!
After lunch, we went back to the woods and the children were given the task of creating weatherproof dens using ropes, tarpaulin sheets and anything else they could find. These were tested with a watering can to mixed results but judging by the laughter and chatter everyone absolutely loved it, even if they did get wet. All of the hard work was rewarded with a cup of ‘Squirrel stew’ (hot chocolate) round a campfire. A perfect end to a perfect day.

We love rounders!

What a fantastic way to end a busy week with a game of rounders with Year 2. Lovely to see great sportsmanship amongst the children today.

There are some amazing batters and fielders out there. Score was Blue team 18 rounders to Red team 13. Well done everyone!!

We love glitter!

We have had fun with glitter this morning to show how clean our hands are. Children put a drop of hand lotion and rubbed them together to spread it out. A pinch of glitter was placed in the palm of each hand and it was rubbed in. Everyone high fived each other to show how quickly it spread.

The children couldn’t believe how quickly the glitter had spread! When they washed their hands with water, some of it remained. When they used soap, the glitter came off quickly. The glitter was acting the same way as germs and everyone was surprised how quickly the glitter had spread! We realised how important it is to wash our hands.

‘It was sticky. We high fived each other and I had different coloured glitter on my hands!’   Christopher

We love learning about directions!

Children in Year 1 and 2 have all taken part in Direction Week at school. They have all been learning directional language such as forwards, backwards, left, right, half and quarter turns. Other groups had lots of fun solving a treasure hunt in the playground, using co-ordinates on a map and listening carefully to follow instructions when using a giant parachute in the Hall. Feedback from all the children was positive and we will do another maths week next term. Great work all!

We love writing silly poetry!

As a class, we have worked together as a team and have written a silly poem. Great ideas from everyone!

At the end of school assembly.

Mr Mellow’s class relaxed out.
Mrs Baker’s class whisked out.
Mr Bonker’s class screamed out.
Mr Pepper’s class sneezed out.
Miss Bomb’s class exploded out.
Mrs Sword’s class slashed out.
Mr Anchor’s class sunk down.
Mr Dizzy’s class spun off.
Mr Riffle’s class shout off.

We love Building Week!

During Building Week, we have been very lucky to have Mr Roberts come in to talk to the children about his job as an architect. Over three sessions, children learnt about the role of a client, design a beach house for Lego Batman, build triangles out of spaghetti and marshmallows, learn about, and build different types of bridges, using different materials. Thank you so much Mr Roberts for all your time coming in to school!

On Tuesday, children got to enjoy making a Lego village with Year 3 and at the end of the day parents enjoyed seeing the completed work. Well done everyone for all your amazing ideas and working so well with different people!

 

We love learning about maps!

Children used large maps of the school grounds to locate different parts of the playground. With a partner they started to add more detail to highlight geographical features. The sun was shining and everyone was on task and happy. Well done 2B!

We love making our own newspaper plant pots!

This morning children were set the task of making their own plant pots out of newspaper. After watching a short film on making them, children had fun exploring the different ways of making the pots. They looked very easy to construct but they were tricky!

These have now been planted with a bean and we will be watching them grow and keeping a diary.

We love the large apparatus!

Welcome back everyone to the start of the Summer term!

We are starting a new topic called ‘Our City.’ Today in PE we all really enjoyed climbing on the large apparatus. Everyone had super listening skills and we made sure we were climbing sensibly.
