Journeys

Welcome back, I hope everybody had a good half term holiday.

This term our new topic is journeys.

We are starting this topic off by making a journey of our own to the National Railway Museum in York this Wednesday. Children need to be at school for 8:45am Wednesday morning, don’t forget to wear your uniform and bring a packed lunch.

Andy Goldsworthy

Last week in Art & D.T. we looked at the famous artist and sculptor Andy Goldsworthy. He creates pieces of art using materials from nature such as, sticks, stones, sand, leaves. We went outside and collected our own materials and had a go at making our own art inspired by Andy Goldsworthy.

Fire! Fire!

Today we were extremely lucky to have the firemen come and visit us with their fire engine. They gave us a presentation about house fires and how to stay safe. We learnt that if our clothes were on fire we have to Stop, Drop and Roll! Bailey-Jay did a fantastic demonstration for us. We also learnt the number we must ring if we need the fire brigade and how important it is for us to know our house numbers and street name, in case we ever need to ring for the fire brigade. The children got the chance to look at the fire engine and even sat inside it!

Traditional Crafts

Today children in Class 2 have been using clay to make their own pottery. The children designed their pottery last week in Art & Design, we had some quite adventurous designs such as the Eiffel Tower, volcano’s, snakes, birthday cakes, vases, pots and lots of other ideas. Next week we will paint our pottery once it has dried.

Have a look at the children making their designs below.

Traditional Tales

This term Class 2 are learning about Traditional Tales in their literacy and topic work. This week we have talked about the legend that is Robin Hood. We talked about him being a local hero, only living down the road in Sherwood Forest, hundreds of years ago. We tried to name as many traditional tales as we could in literacy.

Can you think of any?

Welcome back!

Welcome back Class 2!

I hope you’ve had a lovely holiday and done lots of exciting things. We have had a brilliant first week back at school and all the children have settled in fantastically. This term our topic is called me and my country. In Science last week we were looking at our bodies, drawing round them and labelling our body parts. Do you know what your abdomen is?IMG_0428
