The Foxes entertained a huge audience this week with their amazing class assembly. They shared facts about dinosaurs, writing, music and art work. Mr Lennon would have been very proud of their recorder performance, it was very special. Thank you to our #incrediblecommunity for all your support and well done to all The Year 2 Foxes.
The Foxes had an amazing day at The Tropical Butterfly House visiting the prehistoric dinosaurs. We explored the dino trial, watched a bird show, held some mini-beasts and saw lots of interesting animals. A great day all round!
The Bees have been very busy this week exploring the beautiful Bolsover Castle. They had an amazing day out exploring a real castle whilst searching and identifying all the features we have been learning about in our Topic ‘Knights and Castles’ this term.
The Foxes have been learning a lot about length this week. We can measure in centimetres and metres, and we are really good at estimating. We used our measuring skills to mark out the dimensions of some of our favourite dinosaurs. It was amazing to see just how big a T-Rex was!
This week, The Foxes were visited by Smarty, Gruff and Sapphire who are Netherland Dwarf Rabbits. The children asked some great questions and loved having a cuddle. Thank you to our lovely Dinner Ladies for bringing them in to see us and sharing your expert knowledge about these beautiful animals.
The Year 1/2 Bees have had a wonderful time this week weighing out ingredients, mixing and baking some delicious traditional Chinese biscuits. They decorated them with icing and sprinkles ready to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
The Foxes worked really hard on these dinosaur silhouette pictures. They used watercolours to create a wash and then used stencils to create their dinosaurs. They look wonderful and the children were really proud of their finished pieces.
The Foxes have been exploring key vocabulary linked to their topic – Dinosaurs! They used dictionaries, non-fiction books and online dictionaries. We are excited to use some of our new words in our writing!
What a performance of ‘A Miracle in Town! All of our audiences have been mightily impressed by our Key Stage 1 children’s version of ‘The Nativity’. Here are some photos of the cast, accompanied by a few of the hits from the show.
The Year 1/2 Bees have been busy this week practising and performing a wonderful Class Assembly based on our Space topic. They enjoyed sharing all their amazing learning and made everyone so proud with their outstanding performance and singing skills.
