Year 2 Residential Trip to Aylmerton Field Study Centre

Year 2 had a brilliant time on their Year 2 residential trip to Aylmerton Field Study Centre. They did lots of team building activities including den building, the zip wire, a twilight walk and a treasure hunt. We had the best time and can’t wait to do it all again next year!

British Science Week

Year 2 enjoyed British Science Week and have been learning about materials. We tested materials to see how we could change them by bending, stretching, twisting and squeezing. We also carried out an experiment to see which materials were waterproof to make an umbrella for Ted (Mrs Green’s teddy!). It was so much fun!
