Fire Station Visit
All of Year 2 went to visit Newcastle Fire Station as part of our Great Fire of London topic. The children were shown around the fire station and they looked at how the uniform had changed over the years. They were shown the different kinds of equipment that the fire engine has on board. The children learned about fire safety and the importance of smoke alarms and not playing with matches. Finally all the children had a go at using the hoses which they all really enjoyed.
Blessed Sacrament Festival
The children took part in the Blessed Sacrament Festival. They went to the chapel to reflect on Jesus and His love for us. The chapel was beautifully decorated with all the flowers that the children across the school had brought in. It was a lovely prayerful time.
The children have been finding out about different types of materials.
We have investigated how cornflour and water change from being a solid to liquid and back again when you do different things to it.
We have also investigated the absorbency of materials. We tested a range of materials to find out which was the best at wiping up spills.
