Dwayne the Drain

Last week Northumbria water came to visit KS1 to tell us all about how to keep our drains clean. They gave a pantomime all about Dwayne the drain and told  us what we should and should not put down our drain. We sang songs and had lots of fun, thank you to Northumbria water.

It was our last day of reading week today and it has been full of excitement! Year 2 today had a very special guest in our class this morning. Can you spot who?


Today we shared the story of Captain Flynn and the pirate dinosaur and we created wanted posters. We shared the story of Grandfathers clock and created our own maths book about time. This afternoon we visited the school library and chose a book to take home to share. We used computers to create our story book characters and presented them to the class. We have had a great day, filled with lots of fun and lots of reading!

Boldon Lodge Trip – YR2

Today the year 2 children visited Boldon Lodge to read the story of the monkey puzzle. The children had to find the parts of the story around the woods and then put it together in order. We then shared the story around the logs and set out to make our own monkey masks. We used the resources in the wood to decorate our masks and we then made our very own monkey den. We had lots of fun and loved exploring in the woods and making nests. Brilliant!

3D Shapes

Today in maths we have been exploring 3D shapes. We looked at the nets and had to say what 3D shape it could be. We then opened up the shapes to see the nets.

We then made our very own 3D aliens and presented them to the class.

A big well done to our girls in year 2, who went above and beyond with their reading this week. When reading at home they enjoyed finding out so much about Real Heroes in history that they made puppets to retell what had happened in the events. Keep up the good work girls!


Reading Fun!

This week year 6 came to share a story with year 2. Year 6 read with the year 2 children and they then worked together to answer questions about the story. Great team work! Thank you year 6!
