What a fantastic day the Year 2s had at Sandfield Farm! We were so lucky with the weather and had a really lovely time pond dipping and then playing in the woodland playground. The children really enjoyed being out in the countryside and seeing all the different creatures that they found in their dipping nets.
This week we have started our new topic ‘From a tiny seed’ about animal and plant life cycles and the children have been adding their ideas to our planning. They have thought of lots of questions about plants, mini beasts and local wildlife to which they want to find answers. They have decided to make our role play area into the ‘Rainbow Garden Centre’ and in class we are looking after 20 eggs in an incubator and hope to have some baby chicks hatching in three weeks’ time.
On a beautiful spring day last week, we enjoyed a lovely walk across the hill to Shaw Green Farm to see the newborn lambs. The children were full of questions and Jamie and Liz Smith ensured that we had a really fascinating morning. We learned about the arrival and care of the baby lambs and also found out many facts about the wildlife living on the hill.
In our indoor PE lessons this term we have been doing gymnastics. We have been finding different ways of travelling and balancing on different parts of our bodies. This week we did some great balance sequences on the big apparatus.
We had lots of fun on Red Nose Day and particularly enjoyed doing the Treasure Hunt at playtime with our buddies.
On Wednesday Charlotte came to talk to us about how to be a good owner. We now know how to be dog smart. Alistair came in handy, even at questions too.
I learnt that grapes were poisonous for dogs. I never knew that.
Charlotte came from the Dog’s Trust. She taught us about what dogs need. They need a bone, bed and food. I loved it, my friends loved it too.
The lady was very kind and she and she brought in a teddy it as called Biscuit. We all laughed at it.
Thank you for coming.
Hayley was person that taught us how to cross the road safely. It was good fun too.
First Hayley gave us some light yellow jackets so we could be seen. Next we went outside and we had some driveways in front of us so we looked both ways and then we crossed.
After that we came to a road, Hayley said to stop and we looked both ways again. Then we crossed safely.
Thank you Hayley for teaching us how to stay safe because it will save our lives.
