Year 2 visit Brooksby Farm

What a brilliant trip to the farm we have had today, despite the rain. It was so good and we saw a baby lamb that was 3 hours old. The children learned about different animals and their habitats and what foods we get from certain animals. It was fantastic and the children were so well behaved! Well done class 2!

Year 1 & 2 visit Nottingham Castle

Classes 1 and 2 had a fantastic time at Nottingham Castle yesterday. We enjoyed exploring the Castle and looking at various artefacts. We also learned a lot about the history of Nottingham and the adventures of Robin Hood!

Year 1 & 2 project exhibition

Wow! Thank you to all the parents who attended our exhibition. We hope you enjoyed learning a different style of art. The children loved it!😊

Year 2 become university detectives

Year 2 children were University Detectives for the day! They visited Nottingham University campus and learnt about higher education. Most children were introduced to a university for the first time. Lots of children said they would like to go there when they are older. Aim high and follow your dreams!

Year 2 – Stitching

We have been learning 2 new types of stitch in design and technology today. We have done a running stitch and an over stitch. It was tricky but good fun! 🧵

Tootie Fruitie – A smoothie symphony

Children in EYFS and KS1 enjoyed a visit from Tootie Fruitie this afternoon. The children become brave explorers in a tropical musical rainforest and make their way through the huge trees and leaves to the lion family’s annual big boogie bash! Children were invited to find all the essential ingredients for a huge smoothie (the lions’ favourite drink!) and play their African djembe drums along the way.

Key Stage 1 Hook Days

Key Stage 1 returned to school after the holidays to CCTV footage of Santa losing control of his sleigh in the storm and a polar bear walking across the playground as he fell off the sleigh –    there were polar bear footprints all over the classrooms!!!  Children have been busy making a large igloo in the classroom for the polar bear to sleep in overnight, making small igloos using a variety of materials including sugar cubes and finding out facts about polar bears.  The children’s task this week is to not only think of ways to keep the polar bear cool, but to write letters to Santa to tell him where his polar bear is and to come and collect him.  I wonder how long the polar bear will continue to live at our school???

Toys Through Time Workshop – University of Nottingham

Pupils in Years 1 and 2 enjoyed a visit from Nottingham University.  They had the opportunity to explore how toys have evolved by material, shape, design and subject. Children enjoyed playing with a variety of games and toys – from Victorian board games to rubik cube!

Year 2 – Mutual Respect & Tolerance

Year 2 read a lovely book called ‘The ONLY way is BADGER’ and furthered their understanding of Mutual Respect & Tolerance. Pupils talked about the similarities and differences between themselves and others in class, explored the importance of being different and what they can do to make sure everyone in their class is treated fairly. Pupils drew self-portraits and wrote sentences about the things that make them special.

The book promoted our school value of respect and that everyone should be accepted and everyone is different – which is what makes Southwold very special 😊
