Today Year 2 enjoyed a fantastic Creepy Crawly workshop in school which tied in very nicely with our Science topic on Habitats this half term.
We learned lots of interesting facts about 7 creatures in total. There was Scarlett the tarantula, Beryl the stick insect, Ozzy the dragon, Flame the lizard, Rio the snake, Millie the Millipede and Sally the snail. If we wanted to, we could hold these creatures and look at them close up. The lady told us lots of important information about how these animals use their bodies to survive in their natural habitat.
Did you know that a dragon has spikes on its back to protect its skin from getting burned in the hot dessert? Did you know that a lizard can lose its tail to protect itself from a predator? In most cases they will grow a new tail back. Did you know that a snake’s bottom jaw can stretch into two parts to allow it to swallow a rat whole because it has no teeth to chew? Did you know that the tiny hairs on a tarantula are covered in tiny hooks which they dig into human skin? (This was one of the reasons why we weren’t allowed to touch Scarlett the tarantula!)

In Art his week we have been looking at the different kinds of buildings that Lowry used in his paintings. We noticed that some are tall, some are small and some have more detail than others. We used some of Lowry’s paintings as inspiration to sketch some of our own Lowry city collages. Here is a picture of Rhys’, Macey P’s and Bethany’s city collages. Continue reading “Lowry Work”
Year 2 had a wonderful time in the Space Dome on Tuesday. We learned all about the different planets and discovered the largest object in space. It was huge! Thank you to Miss Hesford and all of Year 5 for allowing Year 2 to share part of their Space experience. Continue reading “Year 2 Travel to Space”
Well done to the children who took part in the athletics competition at Leigh Sports Village today. We had a great time and took part in a variety of field and track events.
In French this week, Year 6 have been learning about hair styles. We now know how to tell people what colour our hair is and whether it is long, short or really short in French. We then played games and created actions to help us remember.

We are continuing to look at Kensuke’s Kingdom in Year 6 and we are really enjoying it. This week we wrote diary entries from the point of view of Michael on the day he disappeared. We focused on describing the setting and Michael’s feelings. We also created a news report based on Michael’s disappearance – Shannon, Thomas and Callum made excellent news reporters!
In Robins this week we had our first Stay and Play session. The children loved having their parents in to join them in their Explore and Learn activities. We hope you had fun and would love to see again at the next one. 😊
In Year 4, we have loved learning all about the River Themas as part of our Rivers module in our Topic! The Themas starts its life as a small trickle of water in the Cotswold District, which is to the west of London. It travels for 210 miles, making it the longest river in England, all the way to London. Passing through some of the most picturesque towns and villages in the whole of England.
We learned that it is the longest river in the whole of England. It has over 45 docks and it is home to a whooping 25 species of fish. Another fantastic fact about the Thames include that it is the only river in Europe that has a national trail running through its entire length.
That was not all we learned about the River Thames! We also learned about the main tourist attractions that run alongside the Thames through the centre of London. These include Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, The London Eye and Tower Bridge. Take a look at our fantastic display, showcasing our fantastic pictures and wonderful writing!
