Parents’ Reading Workshop

Thank you to all parents who attended the Reading Workshop – we hope it was useful to hear about the bookmarks and the comprehension side of reading in Year 2.

Our trip to the Museum of Science and Industry

On Tuesday we went on a long coach journey to Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry.

When we arrived we met Engineer Eric and Forgetful Fred, and they told us all about Pender – a steam engine! We learnt about putting coal in the fire box for fuel, boiling the water for steam and how the pistons go forwards and backwards inside the cylinders.


We wrote thank you letters to Engineer Eric and Forgetful Fred telling them all about the fun things we learned at the museum.

Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came on the trip with us – we really couldn’t have gone without you and you were really helpful!

Miss Hughes.

Dear Owls,

Thank you to each of you and your parents for your generosity and support over the year, I have loved having you all as my first class and wish you all the best of luck for Year 3 – each of you will continue to flourish and shine like the stars you are.

I hope you all have a lovely summer break,

Water projects

Hello Owls!

I hope you’ve has a good week break from school and have been working hard on your water projects.

Well done Anna!

I look forward to seeing you all and your water projects tomorrow,

Miss Hughes.


Bridlington – We’re going to the seaside!

On Thursday June 12th the whole school will be going to the seaside as part of our ‘Water’ topic.

We’ll be going on the coach (you’ll need to be at school between 8 – 8.15 am, so that the coaches can leave at 8.30am prompt!) and travelling to Bridlington on the East Coast.

Y1’s will be going to the Lifeboat Centre for a tour and video…
Y2’s will be looking at the harbour and the boats
FS2 will be heading straight for the beach!

We will have our picnic and there will be time for paddling and fun on the beach for everyone.
An ice cream treat to end the day and we’ll set off home at 3pm … we’ll text you about our arrival time.

Have you been to the seaside before? Have you ever travelled on a big coach with your friends?

You will need to bring your own packed lunch and drinks for the day and watch the weather forecast so you know what to wear – let’s hope it’s sunhats, sunglasses and sun-cream!

Not long to wait!
