Kangaroo Class had a wonderful time at the library today. We found out about the history of the building and we know that 100 years ago, it used to be somebody's house.
We listened to the story 'Oi, Frog!' and that made s giggle. We then had a little look at the books in the library and lots of the children are now keen to get their own library card- so do look out for the forms that have come home.
On the way home, we also had some time to play in the park as a reward for our fantastic first term in year two.
Have a great half term everyone :)
Yesterday afternoon, year two went on an exciting visit to the Visitor Centre in Westbury town centre.
Luckily, the sky had returned to its normal colour and we were able to enjoy a bit of sunshine on our walk.
We found out lots about what Westbury looked like thousands of years ago and how it has changed over time. There were lots of interesting artefacts from the past for us to look at and we had a wonderful time.
This week we were very lucky to be joined by Reverend Ian to help us to celebrate our Harvest Festival that we have all been practising for this term.
We sang one of our favourite songs 'Cauliflowers Fluffy' and talked about why we celebrate harvest. We wrote a special prayer for harvest to create a colourful tree in the hall and we shared some of our ideas in assembly. We talked about how we are thankful for food, water, friends and family.
Thank you to everyone who brought along a tin and a 10p to help support people who are not as lucky as we are :)
We have a had great first week in Kangaroo Class :)
We have had lots of fun learning all about our class animal and finding out about what life is like Down Under in Australia. We have made kangaroo collages, written postcards home and drawn some Australian landscapes using oil pastels.
We have just started our new topic which is a little closer to home- Wonderful Westbury & Wiltshire. We are really looking forward to our trip to Westbury White Horse next week so keep your fingers crossed for some glorious sunshine!
