Year 2 Edgmond Residential Trip

Last week we recommenced our programme of residential trips and the Year 2 children all went to Edgmond Hall, staying over for two nights.

The adventure started with the children walking from school , along the High Street then along the canal to Edgmond – they were very excited to be walking so far but they all made it!

Once at Edgmond the children did lots of activites during the day, and looked after the animals as well as exploring the grounds of Edgmond Hall and learning all about it.

In the evenings , the children did a night walk on the first night, using torches and also making wishes on the wishing tree.

On the second night, they took part in a campfire , singing songs and toasting marshmallows.

We were very proud of the children and how independent they were. They all carried their own luggage upstairs, arranged their own clothes in their cupboard and made their own beds. At the end of their stay they also stripped off their bedding and packed all their clothes for the return journey. Well done Year 2!

Chloe’S gymnastics

Chloe has been taking part in gymnastics at Park Wrekin and received her certificate this week. Well done Chloe! Chloe was also lucky enough to meet Alice Kinsella who had just returned from the Olympics. We have some photos of Chloe including one holding the bronze medal. What a great experience Chloe !

Base 8 Maths

Base 8 have been learning about money in maths this week and enjoyed finding the correct amount to make their purchases.

The children were also set some extension homework and Jacob sent his in for everyone to see.

Big Bee Challenge!

Last week , Year 2 were learning about bees and their habitat and as part of this they were making garden prototypes and then the best bits of each prototype were put together as a garden to enter into the Radio Two Big Bee Challenge!

We were so impressed with the work that the children did and the garden has really come together with lots of flowers to attract bees and benches for people to sit and enjoy the garden that the children designed.

Here are a few photographs and we will let you know how we get on.
