This week, we have been learning all about fractions. We know that ‘whole’ means to have all of an object or shape. We also know that ‘half’ means our object/shape has been split into two equal parts. We even know that to make a quarter, we must have 1 of 4 equal parts. We have […]
In our DT lesson this week, the children explored and evaluated a range of vegetables in preparation for soup making. We tried a variety of raw and cooked vegetables, letting our senses help us with our evaluations. Using cocktail sticks to handle each item of food, we considered the smells, textures and flavours. We rated […]

We have been using geo boards to draw examples of basic 2D shapes. We then moved on to drawing shapes, using a set of instructions: Draw a large rectangle on squared paper or dotted paper. Draw a square inside the rectangle. Draw a triangle below the rectangle. Draw a pentagon that is bigger than the […]
In our DT lesson today, we explored and evaluated a range of vegetables in preparation for soup making. We tried new things and let our senses guide us. Using cocktail sticks to handle the food items, we described what they smell like, feel like and gently put them on our tongue to see what flavour […]
Come and visit Mrs Burkinshaw and Mrs Waller in our new virtual library with links to some lovely reads.
What did you have on your pancakes today?
We started by playing along to music with our standard and non-standard instruments. We moved our learning forward with some composing of our own. We have had so much fun learning about musical notes!
Today we gathered some everyday household items and got ready to try some alternative ways of messaging. Firstly, we looked at how we could use objects to make images of words or phrases. Then we used some special solutions to investigate what would make the best invisible ink. Our grand finale was making Morse Code […]
Our challenge today was if I had 5 coins, what amount of money could I have? The children came up with a range of answers. Can you think of any that we missed?
In our music lesson today, we continued to practice moving to the beat of the music. Children are now reading a range of notes. We can also play our own musical (and improvised) instruments along to a piece of music.
These children took up Mr Pursehouse’s challenge as part of #childrensmentalhealthweek Well done girls, looks like a lot of fun!
We started with a warm up – listening to the different notes to make our movements with. We then used a rest with the notes we already know to add a challenge to our practice.
In our DT lesson today, we thought about food that is healthy, like fruit and vegetables. We agreed some food could be healthy, but unhealthy when you eat too much of it (bread and cheese). Some healthy foods are mixed with unhealthy foods, like fish and chips, or burgers with salad. It was certainly food […]
Today we practiced moving to music at different speeds. We used different actions for the different types of notes. We continue to learn the names of the notes and use them to tap out a beat. Our new skills allow us to read and tap along to musical notation. We used tambourines, pens and our […]
We did a warm up using marching, punching and shoulder rolls. After warming up successfully, we practiced our ball control skills at home. Some excellent skills demonstrated – well done!
We used a video that has been going viral as inspiration for our Ball Skills lesson in PE today. We used one handed and two handed bounces to keep close control of ball movement. Using the music to keep time, we rolled the ball around our bodies and practiced throwing and catching skills towards the […]
Today @RotherhamMusic delivered our Winter-themed music lesson online. After warming up, we learned about our diaphragm and how to use our posture for singing. We tapped to the beats in a song, then moved to the beats. We can use musical notation to represent the different movements we did e.g. walk, stride, jogging and slow. […]
Today’s PE lesson was focused around ball skills, but the weather had other ideas. Children watched a video, focused on practicing skills with a tennis ball. Some children did today’s Joe Wicks workout. Many children explored our ‘Winter Wonderland’ for their exercise and had lots of fun with their families! Here is a video showing […]
Today we read a school reading book electronically, choosing from the non-fiction genre. Our task was to make a poster for the book and include any new facts that we had just found out. Beautifully presented – well done 2WB!
We were lucky to be able to keep our music lessons while home learning. We started with repeating chants, using different voices. Can you tell which is the sad chant and which is excited? We began to learn a new song with actions We finished with some rhythm work We just had time to share […]
Today we looked at items of equipment for an experiment. We put them in a list. We made a prediction about using the equipment. Next, we watched or participated in 3 different experiments: Fizzing Potions Milk Swirls Rainbow Skittles We even made our own videos… Finally, we drew and wrote about our observations… We really […]
We have enjoyed Christmas craft activity. Christmas maths has been a favourite 🎁 The cracker challenge got everyone thinking 🎅🏻
Our Nativity star is extremely multi-talented and enjoyed his acting debut in the school Christmas video…
Mrs Slack is working her magic…
We started with a special message from the man himself 🎅🏻 We had lots of ‘on the spot’ dancing and games. What great moves! Finally, pass the parcel is always a favourite.
We looked at statements like: even + even = ? Doubling an odd number = ? 😀 Children enjoyed justifying their sometimes, always or never answers with number sentences to prove it 🤔
Children in 2WB supported our Christmas Jumper day, looking fabulous!
