On Wednesday, Year 2 spent the morning at the Prep site and they had a fabulous time there. Assembly, Life Skills and Science, plus more time getting to know the work of friendship champions – indeed, the morning was filled with lots of fun activities and the children can’t wait to go back!

The highlight of the week was definitely our trip to The Living Rainforest in Berkshire! We had an amazing time exploring the rainforest and spotting animals and plants that live there.  Taking part in the “Edible Forest” tour, the children learnt that rainforests produce up to 80% of the world’s diet! They were able to engage as many senses as possible – through touching, smelling and seeing the wondrous fruits of the rainforest. Do ask your child to share some facts that they learnt with you.  We’ll share some photos in next week’s Bulletin!

The children have been exploring tally charts, tables and block diagrams in our new maths topic based on statistics.  They combined this knowledge with their English learning, with the help of our latest rainforest book “One Day on our Blue Planet – in the Rainforest” by Ella Bailey.  The children set about sorting all the wonderfully illustrated creatures featured in this book into their animal groups (using tallies and tables) and then created a block diagram to represent the data.

Have a wonderful weekend.
