Flame Poems

Flame Poems

Linked to the Great Fire of London, Year 2 have been busy writing flame poems this week. It began by going outside to observe a small fire. The children created a bank of adjectives to use in their poems later in the week.

 

Compass bearings

Year Six have been learning about compass points and compass bearings. Using a map of the school grounds they first worked out the compass direction between points. However they found out very quickly that this wasn’t accurate. To help improve their accuracy, they learnt how to take a compass bearing.

Habitat Hunt

Habitat Hunt

Year 2 have had a fantastic afternoon in our school garden looking for living organisms and their habitats. The children were able to find lots and took great care to make sure they did not disturb the habitat.

Well done year 2!

How Our Garden Grows

Wow, what a difference all this sunshine and rain make! Our vegetables are doing rather well, especially the onions and lettuce.

The peas have grown so much we’ve had to build some climbing frames to help them out.

It was time to plant out the cucumbers too!

Our First Planting Session of The Year

The glorious weather allowed us to plant out our first batch of onions in beautiful sunshine.

We turned the soil, pulled out weeds and prepared the soil for planting. We then planted our onion bulbs in straight rows, 15cm apart and gave them a good watering.

    

After that we sowed some very small lettuce and carrot seeds. We also sowed these in straight lines, covered them with soil and gave them a good water. Hopefully, we’ll see them coming through in the next 3 weeks.
