Chesil Go Wild
July 2019 – This term we celebrated all the children’s hard work in Chesil this year by going on a trip to Axe Valley Wildlife Park. We had so much fun while we were there! We started the day off by feeding some meerkats. We learned that meerkats always have a look-out, who keeps an eye out for any predators. We watched as they took turns doing this – it was a bit like the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace! Next we got to meet and even hold some really interesting and unusual creatures, including Archie the Armadillo who we all really loved. We learned about different ways to look after animals. After that we went on a treasure hunt, finding and answering clues about animals around the park. Some of us got caught in a downpour but it didn’t dampen our spirits! Next we had lunch in our own special tent. Finally, we finished the day by having a play on the ginormous play area there! We had lots of fun and made lots and lots of happy memories
Great Fire of London
July 2019 – The year 2 children have been learning about the Great Fire of London. In their ICT lesson they have created presentations on their topic using Microsoft PowerPoint. Amongst other skills, they have learnt to search for copyright free images, use spellcheck and resize both text and images. As you can see from the movies below they have learnt quite a lot.
We really enjoyed doing our nativity play
Corfe and Chesil had so much fun working today. They have all made very interesting and creative instruments, had a go at reading music and being in an orchestra – some of them even became conductors!!! They also had a great time exploring the musical instruments and creating some super paintings whilst listening to a piece of music.
Chesil Class have been to Weymouth Sealife Adventure Park
Chesil Class have been learning about Malawi. We went outside, took our shoes off and imagined what it must be like going to a school in Malawi with only chalk, bottle tops, broken pencils and scraps of paper to use. We then used Chitenje,a traditional piece of cloth, to make outfits that people might wear in Malawi, sang Malawian songs and played Malawian games.
