Making Pizza at Pizza Express


Last week Beech Class had a lovely morning at Pizza Express making Pizzas.

Once they had washed their hands and put on the aprons and hats, the children were shown all of the ingredients needed to make a pizza base including milk, flour, oil, salt, yeast and water. They then shaped their pizza dough into the baking trays then laid the tomato sauce on top. After sprinkling cheese on top of the tomato sauce the pizzas were put into the oven.

As it was a beautiful sunny day, the children enjoyed eating the pizzas in the park.

Making drinks for Geoffrey

We had great fun this morning making a drink for Geoffrey the Giraffe (we have been reading his story in our Literacy lessons).

First we got a cup and put our name on it. Then we went outside and looked for different ingredients to put into the drink because Geoffrey doesn’t like water. We found grass, leaves, flowers, berries and sticks. Mrs O’Brien brought  some herbs into school and we added a pinch of these too.  We added some water and then stirred it with the stirring stick!

Look at our lovely cocktails….

Art Week

During Art Week Year 2 showed their creative side. We explored different artists such as Monet, Rousseau and Munch and had a go at sketching landscapes. We practised still life drawing of animals and capturing different views of a still life display. Sticking with our topic of Places People Go, we collaged a jungle scene using bits and pieces of natural materials we found outside. We also created African masks and splatter painted the outline of  Africa. 

Mrs O’Brien

We are photographers….

During their Computing Lessons Year 2 have been looking at photography. Studying a variety of photographs they discussed what made a good photo. Landscape, portrait, focus, zooming, lighting, background…there are many things to consider. They then went out into the playground and took a selection of photos which they then added to their own album on the iPads. 

Next week they will be learning how to edit and enhance their photos before using them to make a presentation.
Look at Lia and Kaylie’s beautiful photos.

Mice World Secret Circus

Beech and Elder class both found tiny tickets to the Mice World Secret Circus in their classrooms on Tuesday morning. Despite the ticket saying “Don’t let the children see you” we decided to go and investigate. We found the circus near the outdoor classroom. Although we didn’t see any mice (we must have scared them off) we did find a big top circus tent with lots of circus acts inside. 


A Day at the Circus

Wow! What a fantastic morning the children have had with a fabulous circus performance by Jebb from Blooming Circus followed by a fantastic circus workshop. The children were keen to try lots of circus acts including juggling, plate spinning and even tightrope walking. We are expecting some of them to be running away to the circus when they grow up because they were so brilliant!

A Walk in the Park…

Today year 2 headed out to Harrow Lodge Park to look for any signs or clues that Nessie had bene there. After a witness sighting was reported from Mrs Sale on Monday we have been keen to find out if the Loch Ness Monster was actually in the lake. There were a few signs that the monster could have been there but we did not see anything peculiar or strange that raised concern.

That was until we got back to school and looked through the photos… there appears to be a mysterious creature in the background- what do you think it is?

Science Week

The children had a whole day of Science Investigations yesterday for British Science Week 2017. They were all keen to find out about, explore and investigate things that change. The excitement and enthusiasm was thrilling and the investigations were mostly successful. They looked at how solids can change to liquids by heating, as well as colour changing, chemical reactions and gravity.

Here are some pictures from the day.IMG_1701 IMG_1702 IMG_1703 IMG_1704 IMG_1705 IMG_1706 IMG_1708 IMG_1709 IMG_1710 IMG_1711 IMG_1712 IMG_1713 IMG_1714 IMG_1715 IMG_1716IMG_2393 IMG_2394 IMG_2395 IMG_2396 IMG_2397 IMG_2398 IMG_2399 IMG_2400 IMG_2401 IMG_2402 IMG_2403 IMG_2404 IMG_2405 IMG_2406 IMG_2407 IMG_2408 IMG_2409 IMG_2410 IMG_2411 IMG_2412 IMG_2413
