The Year 2's have had such a fun morning with Year 5's today, we watched the official trailer for the Women's World Cup by Ms. Banks. We joined in with learning the chorus and then worked together on our own rap verses!
We then performed these!
'This is ten percent luck
Twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
Five percent pleasure
Fifty percent pain
And a hundred percent reason to remember the name'
We have spent the last two weeks planning and writing a diary entry for Alice when she met the Cheshire Cat.
Have a look at some of our entries below:
Today we have been finding out about St George and celebrating St George's Day.
We have discovered what it means to be a patron saint and we have had a debate about whether England should celebrate St George's Day with a bank holiday.
Here are some of the points that were made:
'Since he saved us we should celebrate!'
'Not everyone knows about St George!'
'The celebrations could include a feast on the day or a party and you could wear red and white, like the flag.'
'George saved us and the villagers!'
'He only did one thing for us though!'
'I don't think we should have a bank holiday and that you should go to school and learn about it!'
What do you think?
He has a big wing
But don't forget his spiky chin.
He has an eye that is blazing
But you have to run because he might like chasing.
Wings as big as an elephant ear
He might have ate a deer!
Wings as big as an elephant's ears
Saint George will soon get some cheers!
As scaly as a fish
The sheep were his dish.
The scaly skin
Matches his forked chin!
The dragon's eyes are glazy
When I look into them they are blazy.
Golden like the sun
The princess is going to have fun.
The dragon is fierce
But he is going to get a pierce!
This term our topic is 'Around the Globe'.
We have been looking at London over the last two weeks. We have looked at the tourist attractions available and we have designed and made our own.
These had to be fun and unique to attract tourists.

Over the last two weeks we have looked at the different components of weather. One of these is the wind:
This week we followed our designs to make our very own weather vanes and we have started using them to collect data on the direction of the wind.
