Year Two Science Experiment

The Year Two Class is conducting an on-going science experiment involving "capillary attraction," the force which causes water and nutrients to rise up from the roots of a plant to the rest of the plant.  As Mrs Newman's white roses come in, each child will get to participate.  Finley and Sam made blue roses.  Charlie made a green rose.

Afterschool Club - Sculpting and Modeling - Learning about Dinosaurs!


Years 1 and 2 Study the Myth of Persephone

Years one and two studied the changing of the seasons with Mrs Newman.  They heard the myth of Persephone and the Pomegranate.  The children went on a walk-about on the compound.  They picked pomegranates and removed some of the seeds to take home.  Later they each drew Persephone, outlined their drawings in gold and painted metallic green leaves on her head.

The Year Twos Make Robots in Design and Technology

The children selected a variety of "junk" materials and paints to design robots.  The class studied symmetry and tried to make their robots symmetrical for a more effective design.

What Good Work in September 2011?

Each month we hold a Good Work Assembly to recognise special achievements made by the children in their class work.
These hard earned awards go to usually not more than two students in each class and are very special to receive.
At this monthly assembly Mr Holgate and the recipients have an opportunity to showcase their good work before an audience of their school mates, teachers and parents.
All good work is then placed on display in the main entrance for the enjoyment and acknowledgement of all for the coming month.
