Today the Year 2 children travelled around our local area to consolidate and enrich our science learning. We have been developing our understanding about food origins and the journey it makes to get to our local shops. 
We began our journey at a dairy farm where we saw cows milked,  newborn calves, tractors and asked lots of questions. We were shown the journey milk makes through pipes and into a tank before being collected to go to a cheese factory. Next, we travelled to see beef cows and newborn lambs (with a quick lunch at Mrs Marrs’ farm) then off to Torpenhow Cheese Farm. We saw yet more cows and learned about how their milk was made into cheese. Taste-testing the cheese before we delivered it to Harrison’s butchers. Samples taken to share with our families are going down a treat! 

STEM Workshop. Thank you to Alister Bulloch and Rachel Tate for concluding our science work on animals. We reinforced our knowledge of animal habitats, food chains and life cycles with a hands on lesson. What a treat to spend time with live animals!

Our new Science topic is 'Animals'. We have been looking at how people change in our lesson today. Do you recognise any of these teachers?

Life Bus Learning

We have been making rain gauges so that we can measure how much rainfall we have at school. We worked well to follow the instructions.

We are learning about 'Wild Weather'. This is one of our weather reports.
