The Animal Man
What a fantastic afternoon! The Animal Man brought lots of different animals for us to look at and taught us all about FARMBI ~ fish, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds and insects. The children were very brave touching and even holding different animals and Mrs Chalkley was even braver when she had to hold a tarantula! The children have written exciting recounts of the visit and clearly enjoyed it as well as learning lots!

World Maths Day 2019
Today, the whole school took part in a variety of different activities, linked to our Maths Curriculum, to support World Maths Day. The children and staff throughout the school enjoyed the tasks they carried out, making it a fun and enjoyable learning experience.
In Class 2, the children designed their own circular patterns, and they worked in teams to create circular patterns in quarters linking their artwork with fractions. The children also worked on the computers to create pictures with circles, using their ICT skills to link with Maths.
Neil Armstrong Assembly
WOW!! The children were absolutely fantastic in our class assembly about Neil Armstrong. Great performances in singing, dancing and speaking. The children have been learning all about the history of transport including space transport. They have learnt so much about the famous explorer Neil Armstrong and have had lots of fun along the way.
Christmas at Colwich
What a fantastic Christmas we have had! The children in Year 2 have been very busy indeed. From taking the main parts and wowing us in their nativity ‘Born in a Barn’ to sewing Christmas decorations in Design Technology. The children have enjoyed a pyjama and hot chocolate afternoon watching The Polar Express which has inspired some amazing writing and have created some fantastic pop up Christmas cards. We also had a very exciting visitor at our Key Stage 1 Christmas party, even the grown ups got to meet Father Christmas!
We have been reading the book ‘Poppy Field’ by Michael Morpurgo and it has inspired some wonderful discussions and work with the children. Below are the ‘Smile Stones’ the children have made to hide in our local area, I hope they bring a smile of remembrance to anyone who finds them.
Circus ‘WOW’ day
We have had a wonderful start to the year so far. A huge thank you to all of you who worked so hard to provide shoe boxes for the children. It was a great way to get to know the children and all of the different things they enjoy. The children were very excited to share everything they had chosen and spoke confidently to each other and the adults about it. We then took part in a fantastic ‘WOW’ day to celebrate the circus as part of our Mystery and Magic topic. The children had the chance to take part in circus skills lessons, watch circus skills assemblies as well as a range of craft activities including making their own ‘big top’.
