Miss Barnes and Mrs Disley and the children from Venus Class would like to welcome you to our page. We are looking forward to a fun filled year of learning :
The answer? VERY high!!
Today we have been designing and creating a 'Pop Bottle Rocket'! We looked at different famous rockets and the best design features of them, before creating our own. We can't wait to see how high they can go tomorrow!
Today we had a super Science workshop and then we made lava lamps! We made them using a plastic bottle, and adding in water and oil. The water sunk to the bottom. We added our food colouring to change the colour. Then we put in a fizzing tablet. This sunk to the water at the bottom and created carbon dioxide bubbles which floated to the top!
To start our science week, we predicted whether we could create a bubble which was bigger than ourselves. Most of us thought not, but we did! We did this using washing up liquid, water and adding a liquid called glycerine to make the bubble stronger. We loved it, and can not wait for the rest of Science week.
Look at our amazing World Book Day costumes!
Amazon Learning Journals
Have a look at some of our fabulous learning journals after our topic of the Amazon.
After trying and designing, today we finally made our fruit kebabs! Don't they look delicious! We carefully peeled and used knives to chop up the fruit into chunks, before putting them on a stick. Yum Yum!!
Spring term 2020 overview- Passport to the world
Class 2 Christmas crafts day with the help of some of our parents.
Class 2 have been writing stories and making videos to go with these stories. Have a look at some of our work....
Welcome back to school all children in Class 2. Our learning topic for this half term is Passport to Europe.
Ribble Discovery - Fairhaven Lake
Class 1 and 2 had a fantastic day at the beach.
We identified human and physical features, took part in a beach combing activity, used our senses to explore the surroundings and of course built sandcastles!
The staff all commented on the exemplary behaviour of our children and were really impressed by their listening, attention and the way in which they cared for one another.
What a wonderful day!
Trip to Judges Lodgings
Yesterday we were visited by Sarah Roberts. She read us her book "Somebody Swallowed Stanley" and talked to us about environmental issues including the importance of getting rid of our rubbish properly.
We were all lucky enough to receive a signed copy of her book.

As part of our work on mass we measured ingredients to make biscuits. We read the scales really well and enjoyed tasting them!
Our First Day
The children had a fantastic first day,
We talked about the reasons for having rules and have decided that we need rules in our classroom to ensure that it is a happy and fair place where everyone feels valued and able to learn. We worked together to create our rules for this year.
