As part of our History topic, we had two special visitors in Year 1 to answer our questions about the past. The children were amazed to find that there were no iPads or computers in schools and that there was no planning time!
In Year 1 we are learning about how humans change as they grow.
We had a fantastic afternoon looking at how we have changed!
To follow on from our school harvest festival, the children in Year 2 explored the Jewish Sukkot festival and we made some Challah bread that is eaten during Sukkot.
It was delicious.
What brilliant bakers we are!
Yesterday we found a lost owl in Year One! Our special visitor has been telling us all about her three owl babies: Sarah, Percy and Bill. We asked Mammy Owl lots of questions to find out who she is and where she is from and she then told us her special story ‘Owl Babies’. Mammy Owl then split us into groups to retell the story by ourselves.
We have some brilliant story tellers in Year One!
We have had a brilliant week learning about our achievements in Year One. For homework, the children were asked to bring something into school that they are proud of, so that they could share it with the rest of the class.
We have lots of talented children in Year One!
As part of our ‘This is Me’ topic, Year One have had lots of fun learning about the human body!

Year 2 have made super puppets in class and used these to perform their own puppet shows to their peers. They had great fun, and we have talented story tellers and puppeteers in the class!
What an amazing day Year 2 had at the North East Sandcastle Challenge at Sandhaven Beach. The children worked in two teams with architect professionals from ADP and they made two fantastic sculptures – ‘The Big Dipper’ and ‘The Death Star’ to coincide with this year’s theme of ‘Star Struck, Explore the Cosmos’.AND… we only went and won a prize! How fantastic it was for the children!
Thanks to the parents who came along to support us, without their water runs our sand building could not have happened.
