Year 2 – Writing and art

Thursday, 15 October 2015

This week we have really enjoyed writing our own stories about the Minions going on an adventure to Kenilworth Castle! Miss Blower is really proud because we have taken pride, shown independence and persevered – these are some of our school learning words. Next week we will post some to share with you.

In art, Mrs Pollard showed us some sketching techniques and we sketched our own landscape picture of Kenilworth Castle using some of the pictures we took on our school trip. We will share some pictures soon!

In Year 2, we have had a brilliant start to the year. The best thing so far has been our trip to Kenilworth Castle, our topic is ‘What would the Minions find Interesting about Kenilworth?’ so we have been researching some of the most interesting places in Kenilworth. We certainly think the Minions would love the castle! We explored the ruins, climbing to the top for beautiful views, went on a picture hunt around the gatehouse and even got to sit on a throne like a real King or Queen as well as dress up like some of the people who used to live in the castle!  This week we are looking forward to learning more geography, P.E as well as maths, check the blog at the end of the week to see what we have learnt.

Children teach the teachers

Monday, 22 June 2015

Learning was turned upside down this morning when all of the year 5 children taught the teachers how to do some Activate exercises!

When the teacher’s entered the classroom, all of year 5 were ready to go. They have been taking part in Activate exercises twice a day for the last 3 weeks, now it was their moment to teach the teachers! The teachers were so impressed with the children’s professionalism and ability to perform the moves so well…I think the teacher’s have now got some practicing to do themselves.

The feedback from the children about the daily exercises was amazing. All children enthused about how it helps them get ready for their learning and are more focussed. All of the teachers are excited to take their new learning to their own classes and start doing the daily exercises with their own class!
