Year 2 had a brilliant day meeting and finding out about alpacas.
We were very lucky to be visited by a dancer from the Northern Ballet who gave workshops for years 2, 3 and 4. It was hard to capture the grace and beauty of the St Mary’s dancers, but Mrs White had a go…
These are the things we would like to do:
And here we are after litter-picking and weeding:
Year 2 enjoyed an exciting afternoon of cricket skills at The Purbeck School.
Hot on the heels of the BBC, year 2 visited Arne for a day of investigating and learning in support of their topic, Birds. It wasn’t even spoiled by the rain. Half the school were busy getting rained on that day… year 4 at Brenscombe, year 2 at Arne and year 1 at Corfe Castle.
Thank you to Mrs Buckle for arranging the concert for years 2 & 3, and to the wonderful secondary school musicians who performed. We loved the music and really enjoyed having a go at playing the instruments afterwards.
Thanks to all the children (and parents/grandparents!) who supported our Fairtrade Breakfast this morning. They enjoyed hot chocolate, juice, bananas and toast and jam. Key Stage 2 tomorrow! Also, thank you to the staff and PTA who provided and organized the breakfast.
As part of their topic on tigers, year 2 had a fascinating visit to Marwell Zoo. In school they prepared and performed a Tiger Dance to accompany a reading of William Blake’s The Tyger by years 5 & 6 – reception were a very surprised and appreciative audience. Later, they shared research they had written up about tigers with reading buddies.
Back in school they wrote a recount of the trip to Marwell. Here are two of these pieces of excellent writing.
