    WOW afternoon - making Brunel finger puppets

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    The children (and parents) were set the challenge of making a finger puppet resembling Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The puppet had to have side burns and his trade mark 'stovepipe' hat but these could be interpreted however they wished. I think you'd agree we had a very eclectic mix of Brunel puppets taking inspiration from a variety of sources - from leopard prints to Elton John - they were all unique and the children loved making them. Thank you all so much for coming and sharing in the children's learning.

    Trip to SS Great Berkeley

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    Just a quick reminder, our trip to the SS Great Britain is fast approaching! We have to have signed permission slips for each child before we go on the trip. If we haven't received a signed slip your child will be coming home with a paper copy of the letter today. Please return it to school ASAP. It will be a brilliant experience and we are all forward to it. Mrs Anderson and Mrs Trotman

    WALT: measure using a ruler (and a metre stick)

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    Class 2 have been exploring measurement this week. We started by arranging ourselves into height order. This helped us to create a bank of key vocabulary such as: long, short, shorter, tall and taller. To apply our new understanding, we spent time outside measuring different areas of the playground. We found the painted goal posts were taller than the height of the window boxes but shorter than the drain pipes. The children loved being outside and enjoyed using a metre stick to measure height.

    The Day the Crayons Quit

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    During assembly today the whole school had a special delivery - a letter and a pile of parcels! Each class had a parcel to open and were excited to find the book 'The Day the Crayons Quit' inside. Over the next couple of weeks we will be exploring this book further in all subjects from letters in literacy to colours of emotions in PSHE. Keep looking at our blog to find out how we get on.

    Housekeeping

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    This year has flown by and we have already started our final term in Class 2! Please make sure your children have a water bottle (with water), sunhat and suncream (this must be named) in school. Year 2 will be swimming on WEDNESDAY afternoons starting this week. Girls must have swimming costumes and boys are to wear swimming trunks/shorts (not long board shorts). The children must have flip flops (or similar) to wear down to the pool and back. Please bring homework books in on MONDAYS. I will continue to give out new homework on Tuesdays. Lets have a wonderful summer term!
