On Thursday, 2KW were extremely excited to receive a special delivery from the Queen . . . 

 We received a beautiful card and letter from the Queen thanking us for the cards we sent to her for her 90th birthday! We were all so delighted to receive such a fantastic letter and Miss Whitcombe is going to get it displayed somewhere in school for everyone to enjoy!

    

Measuring Capacity! 

This week in Mathematics we have been learning about Capacity, which is the amount that a container holds. We began our learning journey by reading scales and finding out the units which we use to measure capacity (millilitres or litres). 

Today, we used our learning to make a Pirate Potion! We had to measure out quantities of Sunlight, Carribean Juice, Ocean Water, Fresh Water and Grog by looking carefully at which capacity we needed for each and looking carefully at our measuring jug scales.

  

Sports Day 2016!

Learning about famous Sea Explorers! 

As part of our Land Ahoy topic, today in our History lesson we have been learning about famous Sea Explorers. We enjoyed learning about the voyages of Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Sir Francis Drake, Captain Cook and Ellen MacArthur and the impact they have had on our understanding of the U.K. 

  
We then worked in our cooperative groups to create our own timeline and created interesting Factfiles about each explorer. Come and see our fantastic timelines on our class washing line!
