What a super first day of Sports Week!
Children worked up a sweat with a spot of circuit training and showed excellent scooter skills as well. We also tried to answer ‘Are boys faster than girls?’ We had a race off to try and figure this out and our first results showed that boys are faster. We had some excellent discussion after the races about how the boys in our class are tall and their long legs might help them be quicker. We also discussed how a good diet, rest and practise can all help someone be a better runner.
We are all very proud of KS1 for their fantastic performance during Sports Day on Thursday. They showed excellent skills during the races and patience whilst waiting for their turn.
Thank you for everyone who came and supported.
Just a few pictures of year 2 enjoying their time learning about the different cultures in Britain. What a lovely and informative morning!
Well done Isabelle for passing your shark 1! We are all very proud of you. Keep up your super swimming!
Year 2 started our Cultural Diversity week by learning about Stoke-On-Trent. We enjoyed tasting oatcakes and learning about famous potters. Everyone worked hard on designing their own Clarice Cliff inspired plates.
Year 2 have had a fantastic day at the seaside today. We got to paddle in the sea, make sandcastles and see a real lighthouse after reading stories about them. To our surprise, we even spotted pirates!
Children are very excited for our trip to New Brighton next week but do you know where it is? We used the maps app on the iPads to locate New Brighton and learned that it is situated near Liverpool. If we travel on the M6 it will takes us just under an hour and a half to get there. We also noticed that to get to New Brighton we would have to travel in a northeasterly direction.
Year 2 have really enjoyed reading The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and learning about the seaside so we decided to make our own habitat boxes. They include real sand and if you look closely you will spot a 3D printed starfish. Children worked excellently as a group and produced fantastic work. Well done Year 2!
As always thank you those children who are reading 4 times a week or more.
Today in year 2, we were on the hunt for treasure! Children worked in pairs to solve addition and subtraction problems then had to hunt for the answers outside. You showed some super calculating year 2! Well done to Kelsie and Brooke for being the first to finish.
We have been thinking about the people we care for in SEAL over the past couple of weeks. First we thought about relatives we care for and how we can show them we love them by giving them cuddles or helping them around the house. Then we read a lovely story about how our family make us feel valued and special. This afternoon we discussed how we also care for our friends and talked about why our friends are our friends e.g. They make us smile, they play games with us and they have similar interests.
Also a big thank you to the children who have been reading at home 4 times a week.
