As part of our pirate day the children have been learning a sea shantie 'Captain Ward'. The children have been singing and dancing along and if they want to look at the words and get some extra practise that would be great for tomorrow's pirate day. The words and the different parts that the classes are doing are in the document below and there's a video to sing along to as well.
Spiers & Boden perform their version of Captain Ward the pirate at Glastonbury 2007
Year 2 Maths Investigation
This week in year 2 we have been investigating the statement 'odd + odd = even'. The children have been collecting evidence and deciding whether they think the statement is always, sometimes or never true.

Our trip to Woburn
Today the whole of Key Stage 1 took a visit to Rushmere Country Park to enrich their learning for our new topic 'Wild and Wonderful'. We walked from Rushmere to Stockgrove, identifying different trees and wildlife, bug hunting and describing our wonderful surroundings as we went. There was also time to enjoy lunch in the picnic area and visit the sun dial. Watch the video below to see some of our discoveries :)
In Year 2 this week, we have been making some environmental sculptures using natural items found on the school grounds. This was done as a follow up to reading the story of The Gruffalo and took inspiration from the work of Andrew Goldsworthy who is famous for making environmental sculptures(You can find out more about Andy here http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/clips/zs87tfr). Please watch the video below to see the children's work. What did your child use to make the gruffalo's purple prickles?
Our first book of this topic is Maurice Sendak's 'Where the Wild Things Are'.
Year One have hidden their own Wild Things in the Jungle...
