Our Amazing Titanics...

We have spent the last few weeks planning, choosing our materials, creating and then painting our Titanic creations ready for our exhibition.

Our Titanic Poem... "Read All About It!"

Our Titanic Exhibition...

Year 2 had an amazing day on Friday showing off all our work we've been doing about Titanic! We had paintings, 3D factfiles, maths work about how many lifeboats there were and how many more people could have been saved if we'd have filled up the lifeboats!, science experiments where you could make your own boat and see how many coins it would hold, Titanic cross sections, adverts and lots more! Thank you so much to everyone who came - we even had a visit from some of the parishioners!

Snow Day!


We had a fantastic day today playing in the snow with year 1, having snowball fights and making snowmen!

Year 2's trip to Colchester Castle


Year 2 had a great time at Colchester Castle last week! We learnt lots about medieval times, enjoyed meeting a princess and explored all the different parts of the castle. We even got to go behind the scenes and to onto the roof where knights would have looked for enemies! We stormed the castle as knights, broke down the wall and climbed onto the roof to shoot our pretend arrows! It was a great day!

Black History Day

Year 1 and Year 2 enjoyed a vertical day in which the children worked together in small groups to focus on an important individual in Black History. The children worked so hard all day and produced the most amazing work. Click on the video to see some of the learning that took place.

We listened to Aretha Franklin's hit 'RESPECT' and then used different pastels to draw how the song made us feel and what it made us think of. We then cut out the letters to spell 'RESPECT'.

We role played the story of Rosa Parks on the bus. We then thought about how she might have felt and wrote our ideas down, imagining ourselves as Rosa.

We learned about Katherine Johnson and her love for numbers and geometry. We celebrated the important part she played in the history of space travel and decorated her with numbers and shapes.
