Our class is oozing with talent. We enjoyed watching the children perform in our Year 2 Bosco's Got Talent competition. We were so proud of them all. Well done!

Our Christmas Party.  We enjoyed playing the different party games.

Can you guess what we are making?

Our little elves have been busy making Christmas decorations.

Enjoying our delicious Christmas dinner.

During our science lesson this week, the children were given the task to find out which paper was the strongest. We discussed what a fair test was and what we needed to do to make our test a fair test.  We used the data we collected to answer questions.

We have been investigating the process of making paper and why we shouldn't waste it.  We discussed deforestation and were very shocked to learn that 4 billion trees are cut down each year, which is equivalent to 7600 trees per minute.  We finally thought about and made suggestions on how to stop deforestation.

When we returned to class after our investigation, our professor for the day asked the class to think of other uses for waterproof materials.  He also answered questions from the children.

We had a letter from King Charles II this week asking us to find a waterproof material to make a bucket.  The children were able to give a definition of waterproof and used their observational skills to note down their findings.

We have been looking at column addition this week in class.  We used our base 10 equipment to help us understand when we needed to exchange 10 ones for one ten.

During our science lesson this week the children investigated which materials could change shape by twisting, squashing, bending and stretching.  They also discussed whether it was a good thing or a bad thing that some materials cannot change shape.  What do you think?

We went to have a look at Year 6's Anderson Shelters.  The children enjoyed talking about them and looking at all the different designs.  We gave Year 6 the thumbs up.  They were GREAT!

During our RE lesson this afternoon, we have sequenced a baptism and have made our own Baptism booklets.  We discussed the signs and symbols involved during this sacrament.

Year 2 have been learning about signs and symbols and the importance of them.

Today we have been looking at programs and algorithms.  We have used a QR code to open Seesaw and have added and edited a file.

We have been discussing more properties today.  We had to use our property knowledge to guess what was in the sack by using our scientific language.

During our science lesson this week, we have been looking at the properties -  transparent, translucent and opaque.

We have been learning about how to write a program using Scratch.  We looked at the different coding blocks and discussed what they were used for.

We went for a walk around the school grounds to see how many different materials we could find.
