Visit to Weston Museum


Weston Museum loaned Year 2 a handling box of artefacts. It was full of interesting objects from seaside holidays both old and new that the children had a chance to explore. They are very excited about their visit to the museum next week and are wondering what else they will discover.


This week, year 2 have been re-telling the story of the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. Initially, they used actions to tell the tale and used pictures to help them sequence the events. They have begun to write the stories taking care to include all the parts of the story and in the right order.
