Year 2 Great Fire Of London Day

What a fantastic day we have had! We got to see our very own Tudor houses burn. This helped us to learn more about why the fire spread so quickly. We also had the opportunity to use the fire steels and make our own sparks. To end the session we collected a range of sticks to make a campfire. All children listened carefully to the instructors and were very encouraging of their peers when using the fire steels.

What Year 2 Know About Flight

We are nearly at the end of our History topic on flight so today we thought about all of the information we have learnt. A few of us recorded our ideas and they are fantastic!

Lexi’s flight information.
Jack’s flight information.
Layla’s flight information.
Henry’s flight information.

Year 2 Visit the Spitfire

Wow! What a fantastic day we have had seeing the Spitfire at the Potteries Museum. Children were extremely excited to travel on the minibuses and explore the Spitfire Gallery when we got there. We have found out lots about the Spitfire and the local designer Reginald Mitchell – a brilliant way to enhance our flight topic.

Anderson Shelters

In Year 4, the children have been creating Anderson Shelters as part of their WW2 Blitz topic. The children learned about why we had Anderson Shelters during the war and that over 1.5 million Anderson Shelters were built in gardens all over the country.
Here are some of their AMAZING models!

Up, Up and Away!

The children have made a fantastic start on our new flight topic this week. We learnt that hot air balloons were first invented by the Montgolfier brothers in 1783 and that the first flight was in Paris. Children have then designed and made their very one hot air balloons.

Year One Super Stars!

We have been super impressed with everyone’s work in Year One today! The children have written some fabulous sentences to create a super ‘Wanted’ poster and if you look closely at their sentences, you might even spot some amazing adjectives! Not only have the children been busy making ‘Wanted’ posters, they have also made a tens frame and learned how to add mentally using their number bonds to ten! In History, we have looked at timelines and thought about how timelines show chronological order and the children have made excellent timelines showing some important events in their lives!

A massive WELL DONE to the Year One children and a great big THANK YOU to the Year One parents!
