Be Bright! Be Seen!
In Class Two we have been learning about the importance of staying active;
we know we can walk, wheel or bike to school - even if it is just for 5 minutes!
We have also learned about Road Safety and the importance of being 'safe and seen'
in the darkness, particularly during the winter months when it is darker much earlier.
We know florescent items or clothing help us to be seen and
we can always carry a torch or head-light!
October: Virtual Author Visit
Class 2 had the delight of being joined (virtually) by Rachel Morrisroe and Steven Lenton,
author and illustrator of the brand new, exciting picture book, "How to Grow A Unicorn".
We even learned how to draw a unicorn.
Welcome to Class Two of 2021!
YEAR 2 SCIENCE: Year 2 have just completed their latest Science topic: Living Things and Their Habitats. The children learnt about a variety of habitats and the plants and animals that live there. They learnt to tell the difference between things that are living, dead and things that have never been alive, and applied this in a range of contexts. They made observations of a local habitat and the creatures that live there, investigated conditions in local microhabitats and how this affects the minibeasts found within them. They also researched a range of global habitats and how the living things that live there are suited to their environments, and they also learnt the idea of dependency between plant and animal species.
YEAR 3 SCIENCE: Today, 10th June 2021, Steven Wright from Celed Rocks Workshops, delivered a very interesting, interactive workshop all about rocks and volcanoes. In the photos you can see the children exploring numerous rocks (igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary), creating their own sand and witnessing a volcanic eruption.
