Row, row, row your boat. This week Year 2 took on a D&T project to design and make a boat. The children looked at different types of boats and experimented with different materials before creating their vessels. There was great excitement when they tested out their designs. The children evaluated their work and decided that some changes were needed!
On Wednesday, we all enjoyed a wonderful performance of Peter Pan and Captain Cook in the local library. We went on a great adventure to Neverland and we listened to the tales of Peter Pan and his nemesis Captain Cook. We helped the Lost Boys to fight off some pirate baddies and we took part in a funny, fishy cook off!
On your marks, Get set, Go!
Following a very ‘Happy’ warm-up, Year 2 took to the field to take part in the KS1 Sports Day. The children showed off their precision throwing skills at the beanbag station. They zoomed through the obstacle course and made light work of the skipping race. Plenty of concentration was required for the egg and spoon race as well as the beanbag balancing race. The children conveniently finished up at the refreshment station where they enjoyed some refreshing orange slices. The children had great fun cheering on the adults as Mums and Dads took to the field for some fantastic sprint races! Sports Day concluded with the presentation of medals for everyone who took part. Congratulations to St. Bernadette House, the overall winners of KS1 Sports Day 2018.
This week we had 2 wonderful volunteers helping out in Year 2. A BIG thank you to Owain and DJ for all their hard work. Thank you for being kind and caring, helping with our reading and for sharing all your sporting talents with us!
