    Time Travel Day

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Class 2 went back in time to 1970s (a very good vintage year!). We found out about fashion from the '70s and helped Traction Man to feel that he could fit in too by designing and describing a 1970's outfit for him. We know how he likes a costume change from the stories we have read and made. Then we looked at all the wacky glasses Elton John wore through the time and designed and made our own. Brilliant fun and we worked out that we had covered - D.T., art, English and science learning!

    Traction Man comes to life

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    A lot of the children have obviously been busy at home writing their own versions of Traction Man stories to share in class. Thank you. Heidi shared her version with the class, needing the help of a couple of friends to act out the story with props! It was great fun to watch and listen to.

    Safer Internet Day

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Today we followed up from Mrs Vizard's assembly; recognising and understanding how to be safe when online. We shared a story, watched a video clip and made reminder posters. The key points were... always ask permission (if it is okay) to go online. Once on, always ask an adult to help when faced with questions or choices such as "do you want to buy ... ?" Never give out any personal information; name, age, address, birthday or where you go to school. Have fun...stay safe!

    Walt understand that half is 2 equal groups.

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Fractions! Our maths theme has moved on but has very close links to the division just covered and the multiplication facts we know... so keep working on those 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables! Today we talked about finding equal halves of a shape, using both the word and the symbol.

    WALT link ideas within a story

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Today in our English session we investigated the authors subtle skill of moving the setting to create mini plots. Mini Grey the author of Traction Man uses an unseen characters voice to do this. We tried it out with our classroom based setting ideas. For example, Sam moved the setting from the table to the boys toilet by having the teachers voice say "It's time to get ready for lunch"!

    Jenner Museum

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Firstly, a huge thank you to the staff at the Edward Jenner Museum for hosting our spectacular "Hedgehog habitat" workshop. The children clearly had a fabulous experience as their chatter was full of "guess what we did Mrs Trotman"... talk this morning! We are very lucky to have such a great resource here on our doorstep. Thank you also to the parents who, at short notice and in pretty nippy conditions, gave up their afternoon to accompany us.

    Jenner Museum part 2

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    The children were taken on a habitat trail around the grounds, learning where local native species might live such as toads in the well and lizards in the wall crevices. Then they helped to make hedgehog hibernation houses.
