Term 5 has been short but incredibly jam-packed! We began to a trip to Chew Valley Animal Park, where the children were able to learn more about animals, their habitats and life-cycles. They had a wonderful day and particularly enjoyed playing with the baby goats (kids) and spending time in Cuddle Corner with the rabbits, chicks, mice, rats and a tortoise! Some lucky members of Chestnut Class even got a little kiss from a lamb named Robbie…aww!
During May, we also had our “Special Workbooks” (a.k.a SATs). Every single member of the class worked so hard and actually really enjoyed the papers! They were proud to be able to use everything they had learnt this year to complete the papers to the very best of their ability. Lauren is very impressed indeed!
Not only did we have the aforementioned to do, but we also had to learn our Year 2 summer dance: Jumping Joan’s Jig. The class quickly got to grips with the moves and learnt it all so quickly and performed brilliantly during our annual Summer Dance! To add even more fun into the mix, the final week of term was Romans Week. We learnt about who the Romans were; how long ago they lived; how they came to Britain and what they have done for us. Bringing stinging nettles over here isn’t something Chestnut Class were very impressed about, but they were all very grateful for the introduction of rabbits and toilets!
