This week we had an exciting trip to Weston Football club where we played so small games. We tried really, really hard and we scored lots of goals. It was an exciting day and Mr Leeson was really proud of our behaviour.
'I really enjoyed going in goal, it was so much fun' Alfie
'I scored a goal through someone's legs, I have had a really nice time' Amy
This week we have been looking at newspapers. In groups we got to look at some sports newspapers and we discussed the different features. The children had to work in small groups and did very well at listening and sharing ideas with each other.
We also have two french students who have been telling us alittle bit about french culture and their language. They will be popping in and out throughout the week. Welcome to Oldmixon!
Week 5 - Sports Week
This week we have had Sports Day. We took part in Javelin, flat race, long jump, hurdles and the sack race. All of us tried really hard and didn't give up.
'I enjoyed jumping really far in the long jump' - Kyle
'I liked the hurdles because we were able to run and jump' - Kasey
'The sack race was fun because I liked jumping in the sack. It was fun and I was really happy I won' - Ellie
This week Miss Simmonds has been helping us paper mache our football statues. Next week, we will paint them so that they look like our favourite footballers.
Term 5 This term we will be learning about 'By the Seaside'. We will be looking at the differences between the seaside in Victorian times and the present day.
This week, Miss Simmonds has been doing some oil pastel painting with us! We used the pastels to colour in fish that you may find in the sea. We were told to try mix and blend the colours together so that it stands out a lot more.
'We used oil pastels because it made the colours blend together and it really stood out.' - Alfie
'The oil pastels were used as it blended colours together.' - Paige
'I enjoyed it because we were able to colour in which I always like to do.' - Amy
Week Two and Three
We have started our SATs and we have been working so incredibly hard to make sure we do the best that we can do. During this time we have also been learning out The Seaside past and present. We looked at how the Victorians entertained themselves on the beach many years ago.
Miss Simmonds has continued to do ART and Design Technology with us. This week we have been doing some clay models. We have been practicing the different ways in which we mould clay ahead of making clay fish next week.
This week in Science we have been looking at healthy and unhealthy food. Mr Leeson got us to sort out food and decide whether we thought it was good for us or not. We worked really hard in groups and made sure we did our best to work together.
Its been a strange week as we have moved into our new classroom! Year 2 have moved from the main building to the Elliott huts. Our class is in what was the old Year 5 classroom. Please drop off and pick us up from here in the future.
"The classroom is great! We've got lockers now and everyone seems really excited to be in the new room." - Freddie
"It feels strange. At first it felt like we were going up to be in Year 6. It makes us feel a lot older. I didn't even know it was happening" - Sophie
Well done to all the children who presented a fantastic performance of 'The Stable Boy'

We will be performing our christmas play on
Thursday 28th November
Today a man called Andy came in from North Somerset council to tell us about recycling.
We found out what materials could be recycled and all the different types of bins there are.
We then went outside to see the recycling lorry so that we could learn how they then sort and recycle our rubbish and how parts the lorry works.
We have a paper recycling bin in our class room so we MUST remember to recycle.
