Warwick Castle!

We had so much fun on our recent trip to Warwick castle. We learned all about life in a castle, climbed the Motte and admired the view from up high, watched a real life archer, saw some birds of prey in action and had an amazing extra talk about attack and defence.

Class 2 visit Pershore Fire Station

On Wednesday 1st November we visited Pershore fire station to find out how fires are fought today. This term we have been looking at the Great Fire of London and have been wondering why so many houses burnt down.

We have investigated how many proper firemen they had in 1666 (none!), what they wore (posh clothes and wigs!) and what they used to put out the fires (buckets of water from the river Thames).

At the fire station we were able to look at all the equipment that is used to put out fires, rescue animals from danger and save people from water. It was amazing how everything fitted in to the engine.

We had several questions for the firemen. Archie wanted to know how quickly they got dressed (about 10 seconds). He tried to put the clothes on at the same speed. I think he needs more practice!!

The best part of the morning was having a go with the fire hose. Everyone was allowed to squirt water across the car park. It was very hard to hold the hose still as the water came out very fast.

We had a great time at the fire station and it really helped us understand how differently fires are fought now to how they were fought in 1666.

Run, run as fast as you can

You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!

 

This week Year 2 have been making gingerbread men because we were learning about the story 'The Gingerbread Man' for Harvest.  When we were cooking we had to listen very carefully and follow instructions because we know that the kitchen could be dangerous. We made our own characters from the story and then decorated them.  We loved making gingerbread men and had lots of fun, but we loved eating them more!

 

Welcome to the new school year!!

Autumn 2017

On Tuesday 26th September we took part in European Languages Day.  We have been learning about The Netherlands.  We dressed up in red, white and blue because these are the colours of the Dutch flag.  We have had a continental breakfast, tasted some cheese and started a display of tulips.
