Pirate Day!

Everyone in year 2 had a fantastic time becoming pirates for the day to round up our 'Splish Splash Splosh' topic.

We went on an exciting treasure hunt around the school grounds, made our own treasure maps for others to follow and searched for missing items in a scavenger hunt.

At the end of the day we received our pirate passports.

See the gallery section of the website for more photos.

Birdworld come to visit

 Year 2 were lucky enough to have Birdworld visit us this half term.

They bought along 6 different animals including a parrot, an owl and a snake.

We learnt lots of fascinating facts about how they are suited to their environment and where they originate from.

We particularly liked the brightly coloured parrot and were inspired to write stories with the parrot as the main character.

Out of this world!

Something very exciting happened last Wednesday, we had a message from out of space to let us know that a spaceship had crash landed in our playground. We went outside and discovered debris from the spaceship scattered around our school.

After investigating all of the evidence we discovered aliens!

We thought of questions to ask the alien.

On Monday we visited Winchester Science Centre. During the day there were lots of things to explore and find out. We enjoyed testing our fitness on the running track and using the thermal camera to see which parts of the body gave off the most heat.

In the afternoon we found out lots more about space when we visited the planetarium which took us on an exciting journey to all the planets.
