Professor Tuesday came and visited us this week. She brought lots of artifacts from The Great Fire of London and gave us a lot of information. We even had to put a fire out!
On Monday (for the marble prize) the children were treated to a visit to The Wreck! They enjoyed playing on the equipment, eating ice lollies and sweets, even Mrs Taylor an Mrs Chip joined in.
All the children enjoyed making their own puppets and using them in our punch and Judy stand. They all had amazing ideas and loved designing and creating them.
Wow! what an exciting day we had celebrating 60 years of our school being on this site. The children all made an amazing effort and it was great to see them all dressed up from different decades.

What a wonderful day out we had at the beach. The children loved the playground and they saw lots of land marks on the way to museum. The museum was fantastic, all the children got involved but the best part was the Punch and Judy show at the end!
Lancaster Music Festival
Wow! how amazing were year 2 at the music festival. The children sang, danced and we all thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Here's some photos from the night.
Trip to Hoghton Tower
What an amazing day we had visiting Hoghton Tower.
When we arrived we were greeted by Christine and Les who were dressed in Tudor costumes, they took us into the buildings where we looked around various rooms.
The floor in the ballroom was very springy and we were taught how to bow and curtsy.
Next, we went to the banqueting suite where Queen Molly knighted some children and Mrs Hole!.
Lastly, we visited the underground tunnels, these were a bit scary and Les showed us his friend Jimmy the skeleton who lives down there.
We only managed to get a few photos because we weren't allowed to take any in the house, but we all enjoyed the day and the children were fantastic.
Well done Year 2.
Wow!, what a busy first half term Year 2 have had. All the children have been working really hard this half term, well done Year 2.
We have been looking at castles this half term as part of our topic and history work.
The children have produced some amazing pictures which they have drawn and painted.
During science we have been looking at Materials and their Properties. We had great fun creating our own umbrellas and testing out different media to see which would be the best to use.
