Oak and Pine Class 

W.E  - Friday 13th September


The Year 2 children in Oak Class have had a very busy start to the term. They have been thinking about what they would like to achieve this year, looking at the world and the places, oceans and mountains they visited over their summer holidays, discovering their dictionaries, programming their beetbots to naviagte a maze and have a created a whole display of poetry. I can't even imagine what they will achieve in a year. Well done Year 2!

Muck, Mess and Mixtures gets messy

The children have had an amazing time this week exploring their topic for this half term Muck, Mess and Mixtures. This week's task was 'Who can make the stickiest mixture'? The children were given sugar, flour, salt, icing sugar, cornflour and shaving foam. Their creations were topped off with some mini gems. A mixture definately not for eating!!

Afterwards the Year 2 children practiced their creative writing linking their stories to Hansel and Gretel.

Fantastic Drumming

The children had a fantastic fun filled hour with Ray Watters from 'Drum with us' this week. Ray introduced the children to the drums which came from around the world, from places such as Africa, the Caribbean and Brazil. Everybody had a drum each and together created rhythms to go with chants such as 'fish and chips', 'hand, hand, bang your drum' and 'yabba, dabba, doo.' The children found they could vary the sounds of the drums by banging in the middle, the top and the bottom of the drums and also by using their fingertips lightly on the central part of the drum. 

Every single child was engrossed throughout the workshop and they had so much fun performing and playing together. Even at the end of the school day the children were still singing the chants from the workshop. What a great start to our new term!

W.E  - Friday 15th June


Amazing Mosques
