Spring Term

In  our topic "Lighthouses" we enjoyed learning about Mr Grinling the Lighthouse Keeper and Grace Darling's daring rescue.

We visited the Maritime Museum where we rescued Mr Grinling, made our own rope and raced boats that we had built.

Our DT project was to design and make seagull-proof and waterproof lunchboxes to send Mr Grinling down the wire at the lighthouse. We enjoyed testing them using water squirters and paper aeroplanes to simulate the birds and rain.

In our topic of Health we looked at how to keep our bodies healthy through a balanced diet and exercise. We found out about the important roles that Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole played in the Crimean War and the impact that their work  on modern day nursing.

Our role play area was a Vets surgery so we were able to explore how to keep pets safe and healthy.

We designed and made our own smoothies.

For Business and Enterprise week our class worked with Mrs Slater, our school chef, to make peppermint and fruit creams. We then packaged them, advertised them and sold them. After we paid Mrs Scarborough back we had made £86! We were very pleased with ourselves. 
Class 2 were lucky enough to take part in Paint Town the Yellow. We had a great morning. We started off by visiting the library where Jane showed us how all the books are organised and she let us enjoy any books we thought looked interesting. Then Jane shared her favourite story with us. After that we met with lots of other schools and were given bucketfuls of daffodils to hand out to people in the town to make them smile- it really did!
