This week Year 2 visited the Life Centre in Newcastle. We had an amazing day and loved every second. On the morning we took part in a space workshop and found out all about being an astronaut. We even made our own space breakfast! On the afternoon we explored the museum and especially enjoyed the Planetarium and the science show!
Following on from their history work all about Neil Armstrong and his voyage to the moon, Y2 looked at the footprint he left behind on the moon’s surface. They then predicted which material would leave the best footprint in flour. Following the investigation, the children discovered rubber and plastic left the best print. We then talked about which material would hold a footprint best – soft sand or flour. The children correctly predicted it was the flour.
Year 2 have had a great time starting their Explorer topic. We found out what an explorer is and even did our own exploring.
To celebrate the opening of the new coastal path in September, Creative Seed have worked with all our children to rehearse an amazing carnival dance.
The children have been encouraged to attend the parade and join in the dances – once we know more specific information we will be sure to let you know!
To celebrate World Number Day (08.03.2023), we decided to hold our own Maths Rockstar Day. We took part in different challenges ranging from numeral recognition in Nursery, Numbots activities in Reception and KS1, right up to TTRockstars Battles in KS2. The winners in KS2 were allowed to pick an adult to compete against live in the hall. Of course the children were the fastest thinkers and were victorious over staff. There were also prizes for best Best Dressed and Best Air Guitarist.
On Thursday, we celebrated our love of reading by sharing books together with our friends. The children thoroughly enjoyed reading together and getting lost in the imaginative worlds.
We also shared the text “The Dot” across the whole school and completed a wide range of activities linked to dots and believing in ourselves. Each year group shared their work in Assembly.

What a fantastic day Year 1 and Year 2 have had. We enjoyed our Christmas disco followed by yummy party food and then a surprise visit from Mr and Mrs Claus!
We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
This week, Year One, Year Two and Year Three joined together for our Christmas production, ‘Lights, Camel, Action!’ The children were fantastic and worked so hard to learn their lines, songs and dance routines. The costumes were brilliant and the show was amazing.
Well done everyone!
To celebrate Friendship Friday, Y2 created friendship bracelets for their favourite friends using rainbow coloured wool.
Everybody, including Ms Gilbert, Ms Hope and Ms Griffiths were given a bracelet by their kind friends, We all had great fun!
