This week we went to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park and we had so much fun! Our favourite animals were the giraffes, rhinos, polar bears, camels and lions (although they were sleeping in the shade so a little bit hidden!)
We got to hold some of the smaller creatures in the classroom tent and learned lots of new facts.

Some of the Year 2 children walked down to the church for an outdoor service for the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War. They made and stuck poppies in the grass and met the parents of an ex Birk Hill pupil who died in the war.
We have continued learning about time this week and the children are wowing us with their time telling abilities!

The children in Kangaroo class have had a lovely first week back at school. We have introduced our new value for this half term – ‘responsibility’ and talked with Reanne the nurse puppet about how we can all take responsibility for our actions and our learning. We have also started learning how to tell the time.

What a lovely day of Queens Platinum Jubilee celebrations we have had…
The children made paper chains – long enough to go all round school when we joined them altogether! We made flags, sang the national anthem, drew the other half of the Queen’s face and ate cake!! Lots of fun had all round.

This week we have had so much fun… spending our time learning about good hygiene, stories from other cultures and the continents and oceans. Ask your child if they can remember the continents song to sing to you or explain the germ experiment where glitter ended up EVERYWHERE!!!
We learned how to halve shapes and numbers and read stories from other cultures. We have also had a fantastic time biking around the playground and everyone came back smiling J
