This week, we have been reading a new story called 'The Lighthouse Keeper's lunch' and we have really enjoyed it. We summarised the story by acting out the main parts in groups and then performed them for the rest of the class.

This week Class 5 enjoyed a fantastic trip to The Deep as part of their seaside topic. The children learnt about the different habitats that animals live in near the British coast and got the chance to see lots of different sea creatures up close!
We enjoyed carrying out their own investigations in science. We decided on different things we would like to freeze and then observe. We were really surprised to find out that the oil and paint turned solid!
We had a fantastic book day and everyone looked brilliant in their costumes.
Year 2 have had a fantastic half term and we have been so impressed with how hard they have worked. This week, we carried out some of our own space research and we are really proud of our outcomes. We also finished our brilliant space art. We have really enjoyed learning about space and what the different planets are like.
Class 6 have had a great start to the half term! We were lucky enough to have Matthew Bellwood in on Tuesday to do some drama with us. We acted out the story 'Awungelama' which is a traditional African story.
On No Pens Wednesday the children had a fantastic time during a workshop where they got to learn about and handle a variety of cold blooded creatures such as a snake, a tortoise, a bearded dragon and a tarantula.
This week Class 5 made a great start to year 2. As part of our topic 'South Africa', children explored a range of information books, artefacts and photos to decide on questions they would like to answer this term.
