Each half term we have been running Ocarina club with Key Stage 1 children. The children have learned how to hold the ocarina and make a noise by blowing into the mouthpiece. They have also learned a well known song each half term. The year two children recently performed ‘London’s Burning’ in assembly which was fantastic, well done to those pupils!
Maths Monkey is going to the Amazon Rainforest! Shall we go with him?
We will need to find out about rainforests before we decide.
This week we located the Amazon Rainforest and found out about the animals that live there.
Look at our wonderful Rainforest homework!
We found out that the fire started in a bakery on Pudding Lane. This is our museum bakery. We even made salt dough bakery items for children to play with!
We investigated how firefighting has improved with help from our local heroes!
We found out why the fire spread so quickly and made our own model street. Fantastic teamwork demonstrated by all!
Samuel Pepys wrote a diary about the Great Fire of London. We compared quills to biros and thought about what Samuel would say if he was given a pen.
We enjoyed making scones for King Charles. We wondered if he liked the fruit, sweet, chocolate of lemon scone best?
This half term, Year two have been learning about the four seasons in Outdoor Explorers and Music. Kingfisher class worked so hard to learn the lyrics and signing to ‘Seasons’ that Miss Gooch asked them to perform in assembly to their peers. Kingfishers sang beautifully, they should be very proud!
We found out that his name is Charlie and he lived in London a very long time ago. He told us that he escaped from a terrible fire!
We are now learning about The Great Fire of London.
The next day we received a letter asking us to help create a museum about The Great fire of London. We are excited about this new challenge!
Our Year Two children have been working so hard at home to create some fantastic pieces of work about Dragons. We have had dragon stories, model dragons, treasure from recycled materials, and dragon flags from around the world to name a few! Well done Year twos, keep up the good work 🙂
In Year Two we found some giant eggs in our outdoor explorer area. We have been thinking about where they might be from, we hope they are from a Dragon!
We also thought of some fabulous adjectives to describe what the eggs look like… ‘sparkly’, ‘glittery’, ‘as bright as the sun’, ‘shimmering’, ‘fiery’.
On Thursday, Year 2 were welcomed to Astronaut School where we trained to be astronauts for the day. There were certain skills and characteristics we needed to possess as an astronaut or acquire during our training. Throughout the day, we were tested on our physical, social and mental abilities. We had to complete various training activities: Controlling robots, sorting tiny space rocks while wearing glove, fixing electrical circuits, learning to speak Russian and a gruelling physical test. We are thrilled to say we successfully completed all of our tasks!
Wow!!! Year 2 have detected an alien using the alien camera. It is walking along our teacher’s desk…
We have decided to write a letter to the ‘Alien Investigation Team.’ Hopefully they can help us to find out more!
After the Easter holiday we discovered some strange things in our classrooms…
Slime, stringy metal, three-eyed goggles and small footprints!
We think that an alien has visited our classrooms but we don’t know why.
We must investigate!
