Red Nose Day!

Posted by mrssshaw on Friday Mar 24, 2017 Under Uncategorized

The children have had good fun buying their red noses each day this week and discovering which one they have got!

The excitement of wearing them all day today was just too much and they all looked very colourful.

We sold 137 in school so thank you to all those children and their families for supporting such a worthy cause.

Food Chains

Posted by mrssshaw on Wednesday Mar 22, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Class 2 loved learning about food chains today. The children were quickly using the new vocabulary: producer, consumer, predator and prey and much more! I wonder if any of you could think about a dinosaur food chain? What would have been the producer? Which carnivores were at the top of the chain?

Lambing at Brooksby!

Posted by mrssshaw on Tuesday Mar 7, 2017 Under Uncategorized

The weather was glorious, class 1 & 2 were fantastic and the animals were brilliant!

Farmers Rose & Carol welcomed us and we learnt so much about moles, badgers, sheep, cows, pigs and so much more…

The highlight of our visit was when a kindly ewe decided to give birth to her lamb just as we were visiting and we were in awe watching it all.

We enjoyed stroking a beautiful one day old lamb too.

The children managed the muddy walk there and back brilliantly (sorry about the muddy clothes!) We decided it was a super and very memorable day and I am sure the children slept well last night with all that exercise, fresh air, learning and fun!

Deadly Dinosaurs!

Posted by mrssshaw on Friday Feb 24, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Wow! The children have really taken to our new class topic on Dinosaurs and we are having a ball in Class 2! We have enjoyed researching dinosaurs on the laptops and in books. We have had great fun drawing them and painting them and writing about them.

We have even had fun playing dinosaur imaginative games. Thank you for all your items you have brought in from home. Next week we will be learning in more detail about fossils.

Rearsby Church

Posted by mrssshaw on Friday Feb 10, 2017 Under Uncategorized

This week Class 2 walked to the church where we were welcomed by Sister Mary, Rita & Barbara. We had a wonderful afternoon learning about the altar, the font and other significant areas as well as trying on the set of chasubles.

It was a fabulous afternoon and brought our learning to life.

Thank you to all the helpers.

Village walk

Posted by mrssshaw on Friday Feb 10, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Class 2 had a wonderful time learning all about Rearsby during our recent walk.

We found the places that we had looked at on maps and practiced following a route, searching for place names.

We were also lucky enough to see a train pass at the  level crossing.

We saw the conker field, reminisced about forest schools, walked to the church and saw Josh & Angelique’s houses on the way!

Finally we played at the park. We had a lovely time and were so well behaved!

Apologies!

Posted by mrssshaw on Friday Jan 6, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Happy New Year!

I have been unable to post any new photos on our blog for a while now due to a slight technical problem. It will hopefully be resolved soon.

Apologies again and thank you for your patience!
