    To launch our new topic for this term, we all came to school dressed as our favourite superhero! 

    We created our own superhero masks ready for our superhero cinema in the afternoon.  We also created some super writing for our display in the corridor, writing about what we would do if we were a superhero.

    In the afternoon, we went to our very own superhero cinema where we enjoyed "The Incredibles" and ate popcorn!

  • What Makes a good Castle? Ask the King!

    Published 19/10/18

    This term Year 2 have been asking the question, "What is a good castle?" 

    King Henry and King James wrote to us to ask us if we could design a castle for them, as theirs was destroyed.  We started by thinking about the features of castles and then we designed our own, working out how we could keep the castle safe.

    After we had evaluated our designs we were able to construct a prototype castle.  Once these were built we had the opportunity to present them to King James and King Henry!

    We loved talking to the kings about our designs.

  • A Visit from an Electrician

    Published 02/10/18

    On Friday 28 September, Mr Perkins came into school to talk to us about his profession as an electrician. He explained what an electrician was and what some of the tasks he has to do on a daily basis as part of his profession.

    He explained how he ensures he is safe when doing anything with electricity.  We were then given the opportunity to carry out one of the jobs that electricians do – fitting a conduit and wiring.

    We worked in teams to complete different conduit circuits, ensuring that we were safe by wearing goggles and gloves.  At the end of the session we helped Mr Perkins to complete an electrical circuit to get some lights to work, and then we asked him questions about his job.

  • Try, try, try Again!

    Our second resilience day was a huge success.  The children and staff had a truly wonderful time!

    The day was filled with a wide variety of activities that involved the children utilising the key life skills of determination, effective communication and resilience.

    The motto ‘Try, Try, Try Again!’ could be heard as the children (and staff!) overcame their fears and persevered to complete tasks.  The day was all made possible thanks to the amazing Mrs Walledge who organised another brilliant and exciting day for all!
