We have been very busy this term creating lots of different crafts for our theme, Ahoy! We have made our own mascots and compasses.

World Book Day 2021

We had a fantastic day for World Book Day! Take a look at our brilliant costumes. We had a reading cafe in class where we created a seaside town for our story The Pirates Next Door.

Treasure Hunt!

We received two very exciting letters from a mysterious pirate who needed our help to find his treasure chest and the key to open it! We spent the week writing a recount in our literacy lessons and explored our school grounds. We searched in the reflective garden, behind the bus and on our field. We found the chest hidden under a tree trunk on Monday and then we found the key tied high up in a tree on Friday.

Maths – Measuring

We have been exploring capacity and measurement in our Maths learning, such as grams, kilograms, centimetres, metres, litres and millilitres. We had great fun using scales to find the weight of different objects within our classroom.

Science – Germs Experiment

When we returned to school, after the January lock down, we focused our science lessons on learning the importance of hand washing and why some germs are ‘bad germs’. We used a UV light box, kindly donated to our school, to carry out our experiment. First we put our hands under the UV light to see how many germs are on our hands prior to washing them, then we washed our hands as well as we could with soap and warm water. We were so surprised to see that we had missed some areas on our hands, particularly our knuckles and thumbs, when we put our hands back under the light. It took some of us four or five washes to get rid of most of the germs!


This half term, Topaz Class are practising their ball skills in PE. So far they have explored rolling a ball around their bodies in lots of different ways, rolling a ball around a course, throwing and catching while walking and bouncing.

Wilderness Explorer day!

Year 2 had a great day celebrating the end of their theme ‘Wilderness Explorers’. They really enjoyed designing and creating their own Wilderness Explorer accessories.

Emerald class party

Emerald class really enjoyed their class party, especially decorating their own cake!


During our Wilderness Explorer theme, the children have learnt all about what a plant needs to grow and survive. They planted their own seeds for French beans and have taken good care of these whilst observing how they grow. The children have kept a plant diary to record the changes they notice in their plant as well as to regularly measure and compare the height.

Class pet!

Emerald class have really enjoyed meeting their class pet Howard! They have been excited to learn how to look after and take care of him.
