Making Mocktails!, by Miss Hughes

Date: 16th Jul 2023 @ 12:54pm

Class 2 finished off this year's Maths learning with a practical lesson learning about capacity.  We practised using measuring jugs and cylinders, reading scales and pouring liquids.  Then, we designed our own mocktails using different fruit juices.  We worked as a team to plan how much of each juice should be in our drink and then make it by measuring the capacity we had decided on.  We loved tasting our drinks and working together on something new!

Nourish & St John's Hospice: Fruit Kebabs, by Miss Hughes

Date: 10th Jul 2023 @ 2:12pm

Two weeks ago, Class 2 were invited by St John's Hospice and 'Nourish' to take part in a community picnic and activity day at Williamson Park.  Unfortunately, the event was rained off! However, representatives from the hospice very kindly brough us lots of delicious fruit for us to make fruit kebabs, just like we would have done at the event.  So, last Friday, Class 2 had a lovely afternoon making fruit kebabs and painting their pebbles with hearts, to contribute to a large art piece.  The hospice reps will be collecting our pebbles, along with a donation from school, to promote the fantastic work they do.

Clever Conjunctions!, by Miss Hughes

Date: 16th Jun 2023 @ 4:29pm

In Class 2 this week, Miss Watson worked with the children to help them understand what conjunctions are.  All of the children can now confidently use 'and', 'or', 'but' and 'so' in their spoken sentences and are learning to use these, as well as 'because', 'if' and 'which' in their writing.  Well done Year 1 & 2 children! 

Open Gardens - Scarecrow Visit, by Miss Hughes

Date: 16th Jun 2023 @ 4:16pm

After members of the Garden Society came in to work with us, to build scarecrows for the Open Gardens festival, we were invited to go and see our scarecrows in situ around Warton.  So, on Thursday, all four classes went for a trip around the village, visiting local residents' beautiful gardens! We were amazed by how big some of them were (we learnt the word "vast" in class!) and how much time, energy and care had gone into creating incredible spaces.  We loved spotting our scarecrows in the real world and were even honoured to name one and to see our names on a special plaque by another!  A huge well done to all of the children who behaved beautifully and represented our school wonderfully whilst out and about.  Can you spot our scarecrows in the pictures?  

Free tickets have been offered to the families of the children who took part in the making of the scarecrows, for this weekend, and other families are welcome to buy tickets to go and see the gardens too - all money raised goes to a range of superb charities.

Class 4 - Our Mathieu Laca Art Gallery, by Mr McGurk

Date: 15th Jun 2023 @ 8:50pm

Over the last few weeks, Class 4 have been studying and exploring the art of Mathieu Laca, a Canadian artist, who uses colour and texture to paint people who inspire him. Whether this has been a scientist, artist or musician. He also ensures that his work represents their inspiration as well as their darker side.

The children have work exceptionally hard to produce their own portraits of people who inspire us, such as Rita Ora, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Marcus Rashford or Bob Ross.

I have been impressed by their focus, skill and how their abilities have developed as the imitated the style of this remarkable artist.

Enjoy their gallery!

Class 2 Geography, by Miss Hughes

Date: 9th Jun 2023 @ 4:29pm

Class 2 have worked very hard this week, learning to name the seven continents and five oceans of the world.  They have even been learning to locate them on maps, globes and in atlases!  We are learning that a continent is a large land mass, made up of many countries and an ocean is a large expanse of salt water, consisting of seas and open ocean.  We can even tell you which is the largest, coldest, deepest and the shapes and locations of some of them!  

Then we learnt facts and information about Kenya, ready to start comparing it with England, next week.  We loved diving into factfiles and reading with our partners, to find out the most interesting fact we could.  Did you know over 1 million wildebeest cross the Mara river every year, during the great wildebeest migration?  We also found out that Lake Victoria is the second largest fresh-water lake in the world!

Time for take off!, by Miss Hughes

Date: 6th Jun 2023 @ 4:28pm

Class 2 kick-started their Kenya topic today, linked to our school theme of 'Journeys Big and Small', by taking a flight to Africa!  The children queued up at check-in to receive their passports, then boarded Hutton Airways with their luggage and found their seats and boarding passes.  We took off from a cloudy Manchester, landing in hot, sunny Nairobi.  We thought about what we would need to pack, and posed questions that we would like to find out the answers to throughout our topic.
