Florence Nightingale - A visit from Nurse Clarke 

We have been learning about Florence Nightingale this term. We loved having a special visitor, Mrs Clarke, who is a nurse. She told us all about nursing and what it takes to be a nurse. We discussed how nursing has changed over the years.

 

 

On Tuesday 22nd January, we visited the Fire Station museum. We took part in learning more about our current topic The Great Fire of London. We enjoyed dressing up as fire fighters from the past. We looked at artefacts, and seeing how they have changed to today.

 Here are some photos of some of the fabulous art work we did in pairs linked to our Fire of London topic. 

Common Exception Words

As your child learns to read you might hear them talk about the 'exception words' they are learning. We explain what exception words are, what role they play in phonics learning and how you can support your child's developing reading and spelling skills at home. Exception words are words in which the English spelling code works in an unusual or uncommon way. They are not words for which phonics 'doesn't work', but they may be exceptions to spelling rules, or words which use a particular combination of letters to represent sound patterns in a rare or unique way.

Lowry Art Workshop

 

On Monday 3rd December, we loved our visit to Art Works in Halifax. We spent the morning learning about Lowry and his art work.

Our Hike to the Pike

What a fantastic morning we all had walking up to Stoodley Pike, all for an amazing cause. It was a long, tiring walk up and it involved some climbing too but once we got up there, we enjoyed our picnic next to the pike! Well done for all of your sponsors Class 2 which are being donated to Dementia UK.
