Giraffes can’t Dance

What a fantastic term we had in Spring 1! It all started with our trip to Knowsley Safari Park to spark our interest in Amazing Africa. We have explored the human and physical features of Botswana and Standish and produced art work in the style of Henri Rousseau. We became journalists when we worked in groups to present an enticing description of Botswana to persuade people to visit. The children wrote some fantastic descriptions of Gerald the giraffe and even learned how to use a thesaurus to expand our vocabulary knowledge.

Well done Year 2!

Magic & Mystery!

This term we are learning all about Magic & Mystery and are focusing on the book The Worst Witch. The children entered The Wood Fold Wizarding School dressed up as witches and wizards on Monday. We had a great day making wands, casting spells, taking part in a potions class and all the children attended a graduation ceremony to receive a School Of Magic certificate. Take a look at the photographs of our magical day!IMG_6033 IMG_6034 IMG_6035 IMG_6040 IMG_6041 IMG_6042 IMG_6043 IMG_6044 IMG_6046
