On Friday 12th May Class 2 put their science learning about absorbency and waterproofing to the test by drawing using wax to make parts of their paper waterproof. They then painted over their drawing with watered down paint to reveal their pictures. The next step was to write invisible messages to each other, we had a lot of fun deciphering the messages!
On Thursday 4th May Class 2 watched in fascination as the men came to put up the polytunnel. They are looking forward to being able to work inside the new space.
Class 2 have been learning about materials in science. They used their knowledge to help Mrs Pomfret find out which materials were the most absorbent and therefore which would be the best materials to use when her troublesome kittens knock things over! The children planned a fair test and worked in teams to carefully carry out the investigation. They found that the expensive kitchen roll that we all predicted would be the best was not as good as a much cheaper brand! We were all quite surprised by the results!
Class 2 met Harold the Giraffe on board the Life Education Bus.
Harold helped us to understand how our bodies work and how to make the right choices to keep ourselves healthy.
We learnt how things like sleep, drinking water regularly, eating fruit and vegetables, exercise, fresh air, cleaning our teeth and showering or having a bath will help us to be healthy and fit.
Harold was great fun and we all enjoyed his visit.
Merry Christmas From Class 2

We even tried some astronaut food. Freezed dried strawberries, bananas, grapes and ice cream.
Class 2 have been busy creating their own Buddhist art work,
following our visit to the Buddhist Temple at Ulverston.
Poppy display As part of our learning about Remembrance Day the children created some art worked based around two poems we were studying.
All about Me Tree Our topic on our return to school after the Summer break was 'All about Me'. This topic was particulaly exciting as we all learnt something about each other, especially the new year one children who moved up to a new classroom. as part of this topic we created an "All about Me tree.
On Thursday 12th November Class 2 went to Appleby Grammar School to join other local schools for the Basic Moves Festival.
