E-Safety Coffee Morning (THIS FRIDAY)

As you are aware internet safety is a key issue for most parents and schools in this ever changing and technology driven world. The NSPCC state, 1 in 4 children have experienced something upsetting on a social networking site” and 1 in 3 children have been a victim of cyber-bullying”

We want to keep the children at St.Paul’s as safe as possible online. On Friday, PCSO Luke Carson has been invited to present some information to parents and carers about children’s safety online. All parents and carers are welcome to come and hear ways in which we can keep children safe and also be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

The coffee morning will start at 8:45 and there will be refreshments. Please let us know if you would like to attend by returning the slip on the letter, phoning or calling in at the office or commenting below.

Thank you

 

Year 2’s trip to Nell Bank

On Thursday 25th May 2017 Year 2 set off on an adventure to Nell Bank in Ilkley. The aim of their visit was to learn about Animal Habitats and how animals use their senses.  

Once we got there we split into groups. We all had a turn at the following activities:

The Badger Sniff (a smelling trail), the Mole Walk (a blindfold trail), The Mouse Maze (being a mouse(prey) avoiding the owl (predator), The Rabbit Run (to see which animal can get down a hole), Pond dipping, Minibeasting and finally Water play.

When we were minibeast hunting we had to sort and classify the creatures into animals with no legs, animals with 2 legs, 4 legs, 6 legs, 8 legs and too many legs to count. Once we had observed the creatures, we had to let them go carefully back into the wild.

Whilst we were pond dipping we found lots of different creatures who live in and around ponds. Some even changed their habitat from the pond to the land and air.

We found a wide variety of creatures in and around the pond. There were water boatman, water spiders, water snails, newts, dragonfly nymphs, mayfly nymphs, tadpoles, froglets, mayflies and dragonflies.

 

Finally, it was time to explore and have fun in the water play area. We really enjoyed ourselves here as it had been a very hot and busy day.

 

After being such intrepid explorers and mini scientists we were all ready for a sit-down and the ride back to school.

We had worked hard and played hard!!

We all had a super, sunny, sensational day out!!

The Bamboo Music Man visits Y2

Earlier on in the term Year 2 had a couple of visits from The Bamboo Music Man.

This helped to develop their listening skills and sense of rhythm and pattern.

It was also great fun and very noisy!

Year 2 had an African Art Day

Hello again,

Year 2 had an African Art day which was made up of :

1 Drawing and painting a cartoon style lion.

2 Drawing an elephant using lead and charcoal.

3 Modelling an African Elephant.

Here are some pictures of the children learning, concentrating and creating some very impressive art work. The artist who visited also complimented the children on their attention to their art work and their beautiful behaviour. A good day was had by all involved.

Well done to you Year 2 – you’re amazing!
