Over the next few weeks Year 2 will be constructing some space ships and rockets.  This is part of our Art and Design project.  Mrs Cairns and the children drew up a list of items needed.  Please bring any useful items into school by Monday.  Mrs Beardon is prepared for the junk invasion! 

  • Empty tubes
  • Bottle lids (for windows)
  • Milk cartons
  • Buttons
  • Clear plastic pots
  • Washing up liquid bottles
  • Boxes
  • Little paper cups
  • See through cups

If your child is unable to spot their idea on the list – it means that Mrs Cairns has already found it at school!

Space junk required!

The circus is coming!

We are so excited to let you all know that Ferral Circus will be setting up their big top and visiting the children in our school from Wednesday 14th June.  All children will be taking part in circus workshops to learn skills which can be used in the grand performances!

We would love all families to be able to join us for one of the performances. It will be a lot of fun and your child will be able to join in if they wish! 

A letter will be sent home at the start of next term with details or please see Mrs Cairns for further information .

Marvellous mathematicians

Max and Olivia were our mathematicians of the day on Friday. They used a variety of different methods to show how to represent a two digit number. Eagle eyed readers of this post may notice one which wasn’t quite finished and one which they were unable to do as the number was too big!

The dinosaur adventures continue in Year 1!

Year 1  have been continuing to demonstrate their exceptional investigative skills.  They used pictures of animal jaws to help them work out how to sort animals in groups of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. They also used their understanding of dinosaur features to design and make their own dinosaurs.  Year 1 have been putting some final touches to their clay work, using a watered down paint wash before rubbing it down to reveal their textures.
