Dinosaur Day 2!

posted 13 Jul 2017, 03:35 by Sheila Bacon   [ updated 13 Jul 2017, 10:20 ]

The Dinosaur Company's visit to Plumberow that was postponed from earlier in the year eventually took place just before the end of term! Pupils spent a day enjoying Dinosaur based activities in classrooms and then spent time 'in with the dinosaurs', researching and fact finding! What a FANTASTIC day!

PE Challenge Day!

12 Plumberow Year 2s, 6 girls and 6 boys, went to Greensward Academy to take part in a PE Challenge Day.
They were joined by 6 children from Westerings, 5 from Hockley, and 4 from Ashingdon.
The idea of the day was for the 4 schools to come together and work with each other whilst taking part in sporting activities.
During the day, in mixed teams, 6 teams in total, the pupils took part in different sports, testing themselves in a team and individually.
The children took part in:
A Warm up, Putting, Frisbee Dodge Howler Throwing, Long jump, Diamond Cricket
Rob the Nest, A Gutter race, Blob Race and Square Relay Race!
The children continued on each activity until they fully understood the game, and how to get the best results,
Each child from each School was a great example and each School can feel very proud of them!
A presentation at the end of the day saw the children awarded with a certificate and Multi-Skill medal.
A special mention must go out to the Greensward Year 9s who helped out throughout a very, tiring, rewarding, skillful day!!'

Dinosaur Day!

At Hadleigh Country Park, Year 2 had a treasure hunt on the way through the fields, past the cows (and the cow pat!) to the woods where they did a range of dinosaur themed activities. They built nests and filled them with eggs, which the scavenger dinosaurs then stole from!  
They found pictures of dinosaurs and classified them into herbivore, carnivore, omnivore or pescivore, as well as making a 'mini dino world' and a huge picture of a dinosaur!
Following lunch, they did tree bark rubbings to represent the skin of dinosaurs and placed themselves end to end to show how tall/long dinosaurs were.  A diplodocus measured 28 metres so when Mrs Bolton's class were all laid down they could see just how big that was!  They also created a dinosaur's leg by finding things in the woods to make it.  They completed their day playing a 'yes/no' game to see how good they were at remembering some of the characteristics of dinosaurs!

Year 2 pupils have been learning all about The Great Fire of London! To bring the topic to an end, they held a special themed day!  Activities included embroidering initials onto handkerchiefs (to protect their noses and mouths during the fire!), singing London's Burning in a round, pottery and making herb bags!
Mr Shelley, a Plumberow parent who is also a Thatcher, gave a demonstration! (with some help!)

A full day of fun learning!
