This week our Year 2 children went to Porthpean Outdoor Activity Centre to celebrate the completion of their SATs. The wet and windy weather didn't deter us and we had a super day of outdoor learning.
When we arrived at the centre the children were introduced to the instructors. They were then split into three groups to complete a carousel of activites. Each group had a turn at problem solving, archery and the climbing wall.
All of the adults were so impressed with how well behaved the children were. The children showed perserverance and determination too when faced with some of the more challenging physical and mental activities. We were especially pleased to see how the children supported and encouraged their peers throughout each task.
It was a pleasure to take the children out of school and we are all looking forward to our next school outing! Well done Year 2!
Elsewhere in Year 1/2 the children have continued to investigate how archaeologists help us to learn about the past. Mrs Davis and the children have been finding out about how historians use items found in the ground to help them to learn more about what life was like for people who lived a long time ago. They have been focusing specifically on the specialised tools that are used to excavate items from the ground.
The children pretended to be archaeologists and carried out their own 'dig' in the classroom. In the pictures above they children are using the tools to help them to find precious artefacts!
Remember to have a look in your garden for any interesting artefacts. If you find something, please bring it into school so that Mrs Davis and the class can have a closer look at it.
On Monday 20th May we will be having our class photograph.
On Friday 24th May Year 1/2 will begin their finally session of swimming for this academic year. Please ensure they have their swimming bag in school each Friday thereafter.
