We have been working hard in our maths lessons learning about fractions. This week, we have been recognising and finding one third by splitting objects into 3 equal parts.
Well done to our raffle winners! Our school council did a fantastic job at handing out the prizes. Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket.
We enjoyed a very special visit from Big Bang Science and taking part in our own experiments!
Class 2 have been working hard to sort 2-D and 3-D shapes in maths. Well done!
Class 2 had a wonderful time at the Washington Wetland Centre. We took part in pond dipping, minibeast hunting and even watched an otter feed! What an amazing day.
To celebrate World Book Day, we focused on our current book called ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’. We created moving pictures using the theme of the book and designed a sandwich for Mr Grinling’s delicious lunch! We spent our afternoon designing our T Shirts based on our favourite book. We had so much fun!
We enjoyed celebrating the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes and created some beautiful artwork to represent the grotto.
Class 2 were very lucky today to take part in a Chinese New Year Workshop with Durham Oriental Museum via Teams. They listened really well to a story, created actions to remember the parts of a Chinese Dragon and looked at different artefacts.
We have been learning about why our mental health is important. The theme this year’s theme is ‘Growing Together’. We listened to the story of the The Hungry Caterpillar and thought about how he grew into a beautiful butterfly. We thought about how we have grown and created these into butterflies. We are going to create a lovely classroom door display with our butterflies and we can’t wait to share that with you.
We also enjoyed listening to ‘Reach for the Stars’ and set ourselves some goals for the rest of the year.
We had lots of fun learning about how to stay safe online. We worked together to sort out pieces of information and decide whether they were safe to post online or private and should be kept offline. We then had lots of fun creating our own avatar, username and password; making sure we were keeping our identify safe.
