Muck, Mess & Mixtures!

Well what a fabulous and fun start we have had to the second part of the autumn term.

This morning all of the children in Year 2 enjoyed a morning of using three of their senses as we dived hands into lots of different types of goo!

The children were encouraged to use different adjectives to describe what they could see, smell and feel.  We were astonished at the vocabulary that they came up with to describe paint, paste, cornflour, clay, hand cream, shaving foam, jelly and soap flakes.

We know that the children thoroughly enjoyed their morning and believe that they will remember this because it was so much fun which will aid their learning so much this half term.


Star Writer

Since the beginning of the autumn term we have been looking at nouns, verbs and adjectives.  We have also looked at the use of imperative verbs and when an how they are used.

Last week we wrote directions to help Little Red Riding Hood find her way back home from Grandma’s house.  Our Learning Objective was to include anything that Little Red Riding Hood might need for the journey and also to use that all important imperative verb. To make our writing more interesting we were challenged to use time connectives and directional language in each instruction.

Our Star Writer this week is Ellie who has managed to include all of the above in her instructions and has also remembered all of the non-negotiables for writing in year 2.

Very well done Ellie you are a superstar.

Race for Life

We have to say a massive well done to all the children in both Y1 and Y2 who took part in this afternoon’s Race for Life.   Even though it was incredibly warm for a late September afternoon everyone of these very young children took huge pride in being able to run and complete the three laps of the Chelmsford City Stadium.

All of the children appeared to have a great understanding of why we were running today cheered and encouraged each other.  They are truly an inspiration and showed our school values in lots of ways today.

All of the staff in KS1 are extremely proud of them and we have to say a huge thank you to Miss Lyndsay, Mr Pearson and Miss Chittick for organising the event for us.

You will be able to see from the photos below how much the children enjoyed this event.
