    Royal Wedding Bingo

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    Class 2 have created a royal wedding bingo card to use while watching the royal wedding on Saturday. I have included the picture of the bingo card for you to use if you would like. The things to look out for are: a crown or tiara, Queen Elizabeth II, a horse and carriage, a soldier, the bride and groom, a flag, a trumpet and a fancy hat. Have fun!

    Mindfulness day

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    On Friday 11th May the whole school enjoyed having a mindfulness day. We had lots of different activities throughout the day including colouring, yoga and playdough. Each class had a dog therapy session which involved the children meeting an adorable puppy called Maddie. Class 2 were very calm and respectful and asked lots of sensible questions. We finished the day off with some time on the field using our new 'giant bubble' kit. The children loved chasing and popping the bubbles and we will definitely be using it again.

    Art Competition Deadlines Coming Up!

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We have two exciting art competitions coming up! The first is being run by Berkeley Hunt Agricultural Society, who will provide the school with a wheelbarrow and 2 bags of compost. Using the theme "Follow the Yellow Brick Road – At the end of the road you will find good things,” the children need to design a garden to go in the wheelbarrow with vegetables or flowers. How you interpret the theme is entirely up to you. We will then use the winning design and create the wheelbarrow by appealing to local suppliers to help with the contents. The wheelbarrow will be judged at Berkeley Show on Sunday 24th June. A prize fund of £500 will be awarded to the winning school. We would like the children, on a rota basis, to stay with their wheelbarrows to answer any questions from the general public, so we will be asking for volunteers who will be given free child entry tickets to the show by The Show Committee. Entry forms can be found on the school website on term pages and the closing date is 18/5/18. The second competition is to design a wooden castle to be carved into the top of the large wooden stump in the courtyard near Year 1 and fairy doors to go at the bottom. The winning design will see their creation carved by a real wood artist who will be working with the school. The design could be based on Berkeley Castle, a fairy tale/ book or completely from your imagination. Entry forms can be found on the school website on term pages and the closing date is 18/5/18.

    MashCam Brunel

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    Class 2 became Isambard Kingdom Brunel using the MashCam app on PurpleMash. After watching 'Brunel' tell his story, the children typed up their favourite fact on the laptops. They then used the webcam to import a picture of their face on to a image of Brunel. The children loved combining their history knowledge and computer skills in this way.

    WALT: plan an investigation and make predictions

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    We have been looking at the basic needs of plants this week and have planned an investigation to see what happens to plant seeds if these basic needs are not met. The children have each planted a runner bean seed which they are responsible for looking after, making sure that the basic needs of sunlight and water are being met. As a class we have also planted seeds that will not have these needs met. The children have all made predictions about how they think the runner beans will grow in each condition and will be observing and recording any changes they notice in the next couple of weeks.

    Visit from the Dog's Trust

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    On Wednesday, Class 2 were very lucky to have a visit from the Dog's Trust. With the help of Biscuit, we learnt how to safely approach dogs and the situations where we should leave them alone. We were also taught the 'dog x factor' pose to use when a dog approaches us and jumps up. The children were great at this - ask them to show you what to do!
