Dino-riffic week!

The children have been extremely busy this week working on their art and topic about dinosaurs. They have made interesting fact files and are working towards their final art piece with lots of practice of drawing different dinosaur parts.

We’ve been really impressed with the trips to Lyme Regis and the home learning generally. Keep it up!

Welcome back!

Our summer term has got off with a roaring start with our dinosaur topic. The children have been eager to share what they know already. We are looking forward to seeing what he children produce for their home learning this week.

Now the weather is getting nicer, your children will need to have their P.E kits (including P.E shoes that fit) so we can take advantage of our outdoor facilities. Please see the school website for details of the school P.E kit expectations. 

Read to succeed: This is underway and children are expected to bring in their reading record books on a Monday morning with at least 3 signed entries. This means they get a ticket to put in the box which enters them into a half termly draw for a free book! Please help your child ‘read to succeed’.

Happy Easter!

This week the children finished making their books in DT and they got to read them to the Foundation children. It was clear that everyone enjoyed this.

Your child may have come home with a colouring competition sheet following the SUSTRANS assembly today. The deadline for entries is 3rd May 2019.

Sadly, some of the children’s toys did not go home with their owners today. If you find a toy that you don’t recognise, please could it be returned to school after the holidays.

Have a fantastic break and we look forward to welcoming you back to school after Easter.

 

What a mooooving experience!

This week has seen the whole of Year 2 visit West Town Farm to find out more about where our food comes from and tie in with our Farm to Fork topic work. The children throroughly enjoyed exploring the muddy farm and seeing all the animals up close.

The children will be writing about their visit next week. Talk through the photos with them to help the remember what they did!

 

2JMe visited the farm on Monday:

 

We looked at the cows and watched to see how they chewed from side to side.
We found wild garlic to flavour our bread.
We mixed flour and water together to make the bread.

2SM went to the farm on Tuesday:

2JMa visited the farm on Thursday:

A huge “Thank You!” to all the parent helpers, who braved the mud and cold to make this trip possible. Thanks to you, the children experienced a fantastic day and it was brilliant to see all the huge smiles on thier faces when they returned to school.

Have a great weekend!
