Term 2 - Week 3
We have had a very busy and exciting week!
On Monday we had a trip to the cinema to see Annie and it was fabulous! Lots of other schools were there too.
On Tuesday morning we celebrated Diwali. Lucy said "We went to Year 1 and drew round our hands and then drew some Rangoli patterns on them. We then went outside and drew patterns on the playground with chalk. After that we went to the hall and dressed up in wedding costumes and Keeley and Morgan got "married". After break we tried some sweets and they were covered in sugar, one was a bit milky and one was very sweet."
Here are some pictures of the the class doing all the different activities.
On Tuesday afternoon we joined the other schools in the co-operative to "Raise the Roof". The event was held at Windwhistle School this year and we sang lots of songs about numbers.
Term 2 - Week 2
On Monday we had a great trip to the National Roman Legion Museum at Caerleon in Wales. It took over and hour to get there and on the way we went over the Severn Bridge. When we got there we went round the Roman Baths, the best bit was looking down into the Roman Bath where you could see some Romans swimming in the water. Next we had a walk round the Ampitheatre. The lady explained that this was where the Romans had their gladiator fights and where speeches were made.
Before lunch we had a talk about the different artefacts in the Museum and we looked at the coffin of a Roman soldier. Inside were the skull and bones of the soldier together with all the things that he took with him to the afterlife.
The last activities we did were in the school room and the barracks. The teacher was very strict with us and we had to do maths. In Roman times girls did not go to school so they were allowed to relax while the boys worked.
Finally we were allowed to try on some armour and look at the sleeping quarters of the soldiers. The beds were not very comfortable!
Here are some photos of our trip.
Term 2 - Week 1
In Maths this week we have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes and identifying their properties (faces, edges and vertices). We also had to find the line of symmetry on lots of different shapes.
In English we have continued practicing our phonics through Read, Write, Inc.
In Science we started growing some beans.
Myesha said "First we got a big jar and put in some cotton wool. Then we added a small seed into the jar and poured in some water. Next we put it by the window so it will grow in the sun. Every week we will be looking to see how much it has grown."
