Science afternoon fun

Here are some pictures from our fun afternoon of Science activities. If you forgot to bring in your ÂŁ1 yesterday please send it in ASAP, we were raising money for CAFOD. Thank you in advance!

Brightening up the forest school!

A huge thank you to Mrs Elkins who has helped the children in Year 2 create this beautiful mural on the fence in the forest school. The children have added their own mini beast to the fence which will hopefully be there for years to come. It has brightened up the forest school area and we can’t wait for the other year groups to see it!

Listening to Jesus’ instructions

This week in RE we learned about the Wedding of Cana. We learnt that Jesus gave instructions to people which they were surprised by, but they did it and a miracle happened. Then we thought about what Jesus is asking us to do. Here are some of the children’s responses.

Consolidating our maths learning in Forest School

Year 2 used their forest school slot this week to recap the things that they have learnt in the classroom. First, we went on a numbers hunt to find odd and even numbers.

Then we made 2D shapes out of sticks and stones. Do you recognise some of these shapes?

Using exclamation marks!

Year 2 were using exclamation marks when they were writing sentences about Monsters Inc characters today. They did a great job!

Forest school art

As a stimulus for a Fantastic Mr Fox setting description later in the week, Year 2 used their forest school slot to collect green leaves which we then transferred onto thick paper.

We definitely used trial and error but by the end of the session, most children had made a fantastic looking tree!

Number bonds work

We were back in the forest school for our maths lesson again today, this time showing number bonds to 10 using things we can find outside.

Some children even made a ‘+’ sign to show their calculation!

Timestable hunt

A huge thank you to Miss Piercy for setting up the times table challenge in the forest school. Y2 loved finding and completing the challenges from the 2, 5 and 10 times tables!

Making symmetrical butterflies!

Today in Y2 we were making symmetrical patterns using leaves we found in the forest school area. We talked about how they must look the same on both sides so tried our best to find similar sized leaves and flowers.

With the weather turning wet and cold for the rest of the week, please could you ensure your child comes to school in a named waterproof coat so that we can carry on our learning outside!

Fantastic Mr Fox

This week we started our class text of Fantastic Mr Fox. This afternoon, we have drawn a picture of Mr Fox with some children choosing to imagine what Mrs Fox looks like too! Can you spot Mrs Fox in these pictures?
