Maths Morning 15.2.18

Many thanks to the staff, children and families who took part in the year 2 maths morning and made it such a great success. Families had the opportunity of coming into school to find out about how maths is taught with a presentation from Mrs Lindley, our maths lead, followed by time in class working with their child on a range of maths activities.

‘Children love the parents coming in to see what they are doing’.

‘Would be great to have maths courses for adults like in previous years – to get a better insight’.

‘I came to see my child in his school environment’.

‘I am very happy with the progress of my daughter. She is a very happy, confident child’.

‘I think maths is very different to when I was at school si to learn new skills is good’.

‘I came to see how my child is developing. It was perfect and an eye opener to see how difficult the curriculum was’.

Birdwatch January 2018

Even the threat of bad weather didn’t stop Y2 from enjoying taking part in the RSPB schools bird watch. Families joined us for indoor and outdoor activities based around the theme of garden birds. Examples of our activities were making bird feeders, constructing bird houses, learning how to draw birds and doing a bird hunt.

A great time was had by all and many thanks for all the volunteers and families who came to help.

While learning about the Great Fire of London, children in Year 2 used role play to act out scenes and gain an understanding of what it would have felt like at the time.

They did this to help inform their diary extracts from 1666.

Fox's Biscuits Ocotber 2017

Y2 children were employed by Fox’s biscuits for a week to design and make a biscuit with a healthy option ingredients. This enterprise project needed children to use all their secrets of success to work as a team and meet the challenge.

Day 1 Research
Mr Carbutt, a manager from Fox’s, was sent to give us our challenge and hire us!  Employees spent the day using their literacy skills to research the ingredients they would need,  and using their maths skills to do market research to find the best healthy option ingredient.

Day 2 Design
As part of the design stage employees needed to look at the pricing of their biscuit. This meant some tricky maths! They also worked as a team to decide on a target market, a shape and a name for their biscuits.

Day 3  Design
This stage in the process we all about packaging their product. Using their knowledge of shape they design boxes and logo’s for their packaging.


Day 4 Making
After all the hard work done so far, day 4 was the day for making! It was time to baking the biscuits and make the packaging.

Day 5 Promotions
All good products need promoting so employees got create and advertised their product through posters and adverts/jingles which were filmed on our ipads.

Finally, Mr Carbutt returned to see whether we had met the challenge and created a product that met the design criteria.
