The children have enjoyed learning about the volcanic eruption in Pompeii and although the story is sad it has caught the children's imagination and helped them to write some descriptive recounts and acrostic poems about volcanic eruptions.

In Science we will continue learning about Rocks, Fossils and Soil to build on what we learnt in term 1.


This term we will have our whole school 'Anti-Bullying' week and the slogan for the campaign this year is 'Choose Respect'. We will be sharing ideas and activities related to this motto.  




In gymnastics Skylarks' have been learning about balance and creating balance routines using different parts of the body.

Blackout Poems - We read Flanders Fields and discussed the meaning of the poem then we created our own poem from words that stood out to us and we found meaningful.  Every poem was different and we read them out to the rest of the class.
