Year 2 had a meeting with the Swindon Fire Safety Officer to talk about what we should do if there was a fire at school or at home. We now know that fire rises and spreads very quickly so we need to get low to the ground. We had a go at doing this in our classroom together

Year 2 have been hard at work this term learning all about Jesus' miracles and what they mean. They have explored them through role play, pictures and scripture creating thoughtful pieces of work. They have also enjoyed being inspired by the artist Mondrian, making links with their history work all about the Mont Golfier Brothers first balloon flight.

Earlier this term Squirrel class were shocked to discover a suspicious box in our classroom. We opened the box and inside was a magnificent golden egg! We have enjoyed learning the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. Watch the video to see us retelling the story.

In Science we have been learning all about the uses of everyday materials. We have carried out investigations to test the suitability of different materials to make a rigid spoon to stir hot chocolate and a waterproof shelter for animals.
