What a fantastic day we had on Monday 23rd April to celebrate St George's Day. The children looked wonderful in the red and white outfits and their hats were amazing. In the morning we learnt all about St George and how he defeated the dragon to save the princess. Then in the afternoon we joined the whole school on a parade around Wallasey. Thank you to all who came to wave us on.

F2A and F2C continue with forest school on Tuesday 17th April, if you are able to volunteer to help please speak to the class teacher. We have changed the day to a Tuesday due to all the bank holidays during the summer term. Thank you

The Easter Bunny came to visit F2 today with a special treat for every child. The children had such fun on their egg hunt,they were bursting with excitement. Thank you to the PTA for organising such a lovely event that the children will treasure. 

We hope you all have a fabulous Easter and come back ready for a super fun Summer Term. 

Science Week

The children enjoyed science week each class conducted their own science experiment. F2A found out what happens when you mix bicarbonate of soda and vinegar together in a rocket, the rocket didn't blast off how we would have hoped but the children still found it fascinating watching the two ingredients mix together and fix making the rocket move across the playground floor. F2B made a lava lamp using oil and water and explored how the two liquids do not mix together and stay separate. F2C explored ice and different ways in which they could melt the ice. F2D planted 4 beans giving one bean no soil, one bean no light, one bean no water and the last bean had all soil, water and light. They are waiting to see what happens as the beans grow. What a very exciting week for all the classes.

Leonie did readings with the children, assembly - with the Year One, and asked the children to help her think of ideas for My Colourful Chameleon 2. The children thoughly enjoyed the whole day and love reading the book. Please take a look at Leonie's website for more details of this fabulous local author.

Safer Internet Day 6th February 2018

On Tuesday the children took part in a carousel of activities all related to being safe on the internet. We are making a kindness tree with all of the children’s handprints, showing that we are kind to each other, face to face and online. We read about a “Penguinpig” and learnt that not all websites are real. The children discussed different scenarios which “Buddy the Dog” found himself with including pop ups on his tablet, in app purchases and talking to people he didn’t know. We also learnt a song from Buddy:

3d Shape Museum

Thank you to everyone who gave us boxes for the children to explore. We all enjoyed looking at the different properties of the shapes; how many faces? how many corners? 

After learning all of the properties the children then sorted the shapes into a shape museum with all the same shapes together. The children wrote labels for the different shapes.

Forest School

All the children have now been to forest school for their first block of sessions, and all had a fabulous time. The children have been balancing along a rope bride, climbing a ladder, bug hunting, digging and making lots of lovely creations in the mud kitchen. We have used the bow saw and made wood cookies which the children loved to made and used the saw very safely. F2A and F2C will be the next classes to go again in January.

Since half term we have been looking at the book "Room on a Broom". We have learnt actions to remember the story (I'm sure the children have shown you these), we have used ordinal numbers to place the characters in the correct order and also written about our own animals and their characteristics.
