Welcome to Bullfinch - Information Presentation

We carried out an ice cube experiment this afternoon! We made predictions and then timed how long they took to melt in different places. Of course, we used one or two to cool us down too! Can you believe the one in the classroom took almost 1 hour and 30 minutes! Our predictions for that one were way off!

Working with our beautiful sunflowers

Our year two children deserved to celebrate today! Lots of fun had by all.

A delicious fruit salad! We loved our DT work today.

Our visit to church to remember Revd. Leonard

Pancake Parlour in Bullfinch! We made our batter, cooked our pancakes and then ate them. This afternoon we had a pancake flipping contest!

We are very proud of our Non Chronological Reports on polar animals and our Northern lights art work. Here are a few examples.

We made ourselves into animals from the Polar Regions to help us with our Non Chronological Report writing we'll be doing in coming weeks

Meet our finger puppets! The children have worked so hard designing, cutting, sticking and sewing to complete their masterpieces. Their evaluations unanimously concluded that they were happy with the end product and the sewing, albeit nervously anticipated, wasn't as bad as they thought!

Our trip to Milestones Museum - a great day for all, immersed in the history of toys and games!

Class information presentation - some useful information

We went to church as a class to give thanks for Queen Elizabeth ll

Look at those smiles! We had lots of fun in our music and movement during our PE session.

Welcome back Bullfinch! We've had a lovely day settling back into school.

It was a brilliant pirate day with fun at the beach! Punch and Judy was a huge hit and lots of laughs had. We followed this with a treasure hunt and then chance to walk the plank and play in the sand. We cooled off in the afternoon with water play and rounded off the day with a delicious ice cream!

Dragon caves were the order of the day! We are thinking about dragon stories and in preparation for our own retellings, we created caves for our dragon to live in! We foraged for bits on the field, then got busy making a house fit for our make believe dragon friends!

Over half term, some of us got creative making our own bugs or somewhere for them to live. Look at our creations!

Silky, the chicken and her baby chick came to school today. We learnt a lot about them! They will now be the stimulus for our poetry work.

Bonfires, astronauts and space biscuits!

Moon Buggies - Axles and Wheels

On a dark dark hill, there was a dark dark town.... Watch out for the Funnybone skeletons!

We used our beautiful sunflowers for our maths and art focus today. We tried to estimate how many sunflower seeds we had. There were just too many to count but we did some clever counting in tens, hundreds and even thousands! We used the seeds to count and practiced our number formation too. Our tallest sunflower is about 3 metres and 30 centimetres tall. We could only do a rough measurement using metre rules. It was taller than all our estimations! Keep an eye out on here for our art work - painting and wool wrapping today.

Welcome back Bullfinch - September 2021

We celebrated the end of this half term by taking a walk up to the church, sharing a story with Revd. Gemma, singing, playing and eating strawberries. The sun shone on us and it was a glorious afternoon!

We have loved learning new songs to help us with our understanding of The Great Fire. You may have heard snippets, but here they are in their entirety. They tell the story!

In 1666, London burnt like rotten sticks!

So much work went into this unit of work on The Great Fire of London. We have loved every minute, but today we enjoyed the climax of it as we burnt Old London.

Building our replica Old London Town. From the start of the process to the finished house!

We had the opportunity to practice our news reporting skills in front of Chaffinch. It was quite daunting, but many of the class gave it a go. We were very proud! Chaffinch gave excellent feedback and were a super audience!

We planted sunflowers at the front of school to remember the inspirational Captain Sir Tom Moore. Enjoy watching them grow!

We have been roving reporters, capturing the events of The Great Fire in order to write a newspaper article. The children have worked so hard to include exciting, engaging language and vocabulary choices.
