Year 2 visited the Kingswood Centre in West Runton for their one night residential trip. The children were able to take part in activities such as abseiling, rock climbing, bouldering (sideways wall climbing), laser games and low rope (trust and team building) activities. They also sang around a campfire whilst drinking hot chocolate and eating marshmallows. The children had an incredible time and many were proud of their achievements. Some conquered their fear of heights, or tried some new food, whilst others were proud to be away from home for the very first time.
The children of Year 2 had a great morning participating in the cluster multiskills festival. Children from all the cluster schools took part and had a really fun morning, despite the cold and damp weather. Many thanks to the students from Broadland High School for running each activity and thanks also to Miss Sewell for arranging the event.
The children really enjoyed making the gingerbread in preparation for our gingerbread houses for our gingerbread village. Thank you to all those who volunteered to help and the SJSA for organising this event.
A very big thank you to all of you that dressed casual to help raise money for A very big thank you to all of you that dressed casual to help raise money for Children in Need. We also had a special visitor. Pudsey made an appearance in the form of a yummy cake made by Diane (Kayla Payne’s Mum). It seemed such a shame to eat him although he was delicious!
On Monday 17th July, Year 2 held their very own garden centre in the school hall. We sold many hand crafted items as well as plants and yummy cakes. It was very well attended and we hope to have made over £200. We will post the total amount raised towards the end of the week when we have sold some more items. The children worked very hard and the afternoon was a complete success!
Last week the children of Year 2 had the opportunity to pair up with a child from Year 6 to learn how to use the animation tool on J2Launch. The children used lego to create props and filmed their stories frame by frame. By the end of the afternoon we had some budding filmmakers.
I hope you enjoy looking at the photos of our recent residential. As you can see we had an amazing time and the children were an absolute joy to be with.
Year 4 & 2 joined together to complete a maths investigation about perimeter. First the children had to think of ways of measuring around the hall without using any standard measurements. The children discovered that their measurements all differed. Then they were given a variety of standard units of measurement to use such as rulers, meter sticks and tape measures. The children noticed that although their measurements were similar they still differed due to a variety of factors. They all agreed that a trundle wheel would be the best option and they discovered that their measurements were accurate. We then asked the children to use the information they had about the perimeter to calculate the area of the hall. The groups were mixed year groups and they all had fun working together.
