Trip to Wat Tyler Country Park
We had a wonderful trip to Wat Tyler Country park to learn about plants and animals. We hunted and identified minibeasts in their different habitats and enjoyed pond dipping and finding newts (among other animals). We learnt a lot about butterflies and moths, exoskeletons, invertebrates and many other things and above all else we had fun and created memories. Thank you for your support with the trip and to all those parents who helped on the day.
Don't forget our Class Assembly on Tuesday 20th March at 2.40.
We have been practising really hard and can't wait for you to see it.
Aliens Come to Milton Hall
What an exciting day we have had. We arrived at school to find an alien spaceship had crashed into the KS1 playground. Scientists were investigating and the whole area had been cordoned off to keep us all safe. We found out that the aliens were friendly so that was a relief. After an emergency assembly, Scott Class discovered some strange events that had happened during the night:
- Luca heard a crash at around 2.00 a.m.
- Emma said her bedroom window had cracked in 3 places.
- Bridgette and Alfie had both heard strange UFO type whirring noises during the night
- Alfie saw an alien ship bounce in his garden and an alien fell out.
- Jude and Kishan could speak alien language so were available to act as translators if needed
- Anh and Yohann both heard aliens speaking outside their houses.
- there were flickering lights in Oscar's house.
- Lydia heard a crunching sound in her chest of drawers
- Jude said an alien had touched his skin when he was sleeping and it had felt scaly, skinny and hard
- The temperature had changed in Daniel's bedroom.
...all very wierd.
The creativity didn't stop there; we learnt a new alien language and wrote secret messages telling the aliens about ourselves; we built space rockets for the aliens and even sewed them some clothes to keep them warm and we made movie trailers telling the aliens about life in England.
We are loving learning about the Great Fire of London and how London has changed from 1666. Mr Cutler helped us experience London as it is now by showing us some films in the immersion room. It was VERY exciting! We saw The London Eye, The River Thames, London Bridge and Tower Bridge, the Houses of Parliament as well as busy roads and lots of traffic. We don't think London has always been like that.
This week in Scott Class we have been finding out about houses in our local area. We took a short stroll around the block to look at houses and recorded what we saw on a tally chart. Later that day we designed a house for Barnaby Bear and we finished the week by making our designs into a 3D model. Here are just a few of our creations. What do you think of them?
We loved visiting the school library this week. What a magical place!
Finding a quiet corner to fully immerse ourselves in someone's imagination; there's nothing better.
We carefully selected a book to take home and look forward to enjoying this book for up to 2 weeks.
Some of us chose our favourite author and some chose non-fiction books.
Welcome back to our school and to the start of an exciting journey in Year 2. We have been inspired by the perseverance and determination of Captain Robert Falcon Scott who never gave up and we will be developing our learning skills throughout the year so we can be the very best we can be our topic this term is how can we make our world a better place?
