This week the last week of Eco-Science club for KS1. Miss Reid and Mrs Gritton have been blown away by the eagerness and enthusiasm the children have shown over the last 6 weeks. If you can remember, in the first week we planted some seeds in pots which the children have been checking on each week.
This week they had the opportunity to draw what has happened to their seed. We hope the children remember to water their plants at home and hopefully soon we might have some small vegetables appear! Everyone left yesterday with a special Eco-Science certificate to show what an amazing job they have done. Let’s hope KS2 are just as enthusiastic!
This week at Eco Science Club, the children were back outside – this time collecting air from around our yard. Why were you collecting air, I hear you ask. Well, we have taken a sample of our air to send to be inspected. Hopefully, we will receive some data from the scientists explaining what is in our air and if we have “clean” or “dirty” air. The children were fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed getting the samples.
This evening, Eco Science club went outdoors! The children were able to get stuck in this week with some weeding and planting. We were extremely sensible and very grown up as we used trowels, rakes and forks to dig out small weeds and make little holes for our seeds. Mrs Gritton and Miss Reid were both very impressed by the children’s behaviour. We hope that are little plants can survive the winter!
Year 2A have been amazing this week in their first week back at school. It has been lovely sharing all of our holiday stories and adventures and catching up with friends. The children are certainly ready for all of the Year 2 challenges ahead. Welcome back boys and girls. I’ve missed you lots during the holidays.
Year 2 shared their final KS1 liturgy this morning with their families. The children read beautifully, sang amazingly and even performed their drama with great enthusiasm. Year 2 focussed on the Holy Trinity and how the Holy Spirit guides each and every one of us. We remembered how Pentecost was a very special time when the disciples received the gift of the Holy Spirit to overcome their fears. We used this to reflect on what we would like to receive from the Holy Spirit and wrote these down on our fruit of the Holy Spirit. The children and staff were delighted with the support shown from families, which we are hugely thankful for. Well done Year 2!
