2 Autumn Term 2017
Apple Pressing - 21/09/2017
Year 2 enjoyed an apple-making workshop with Kevin, from West Town Farm, Ide. The children brought in their own apples and learnt about new varieties. They helped Kevin in preparing chopped apples for the 'scratter' and the hand-operated pressing equipment. Once all the apples were juiced, the children enjoyed half a glass of fresh apple juice as a reward for their efforts.
Well done to the children and a thank you to FOSSS for their funding support, Mrs Hallet- for organising- and to Kevin for his direction and help.
Year 2 Multi Skills Festival - 12/10/17
On Thursday Year 2 attended a Multi Skills Festival held at St Luke's School. The children had a great day trying out some new sports and activities. We started outside where the class was split into groups with a student from St Luke's as their leader. The children played different warm up and running games such as 'Rats and Rabbits' and 'Race to the Moon'!
After this we headed indoors where the children got to practice their throwing, balancing and target skills in a range of fun games.
The class then got to have a go at New Age Kurling, an event which they all really enjoyed and have asked to do again!
We would like to say a massive thank you to Rebecca Skinner and Matt Upston for organising this event and a big thank you to all the students, parents and staff that helped on the day. We look forward to doing another event soon!
