Miss Cox Spring Term 2011

Happy New Year! Welcome back to school. This term will see all Year 2 children entering 'The Dragon's Den', as Year 2 have been invited to participate in Southport Learning Partnership's Enterprise Project. During the first half of the term we will be acquiring many new skills. Initially, we have focussed on finding out about the geoography of Southport. We have located Southport on the map of the UK and enjoyed identifying features from aerial photographs of Southport. We have played guess the object from looking at their plan view and matching to their side view.


Our Enterprise Project certainly got our creative juices going; generated lots of discussion and helped us develop our literacy,numeracy, ICT and artistic skills. Miss Cox and Mrs. Dunne were thrilled with the entusiasm and commitment all the children displayed towards the project. Many children have been inspired to research ice-cream recipes, draw ice-cream images and devise poems at home.


We have now embarked on our 'Around the World' adventures, first stop China. Mrs. Rothwell kick-started this topic with very informative talk about her visit. She enhanced her talk by showing us many interesting and beautiful artefacts. We don't know how she managed to bring them all back from China in her suitcase. Next stop has been Africa. We have focused on the great variety of magnificent wild animals, this has also linked in with our 'Variation' topic in Science. Alphabetical order has also been a focus whilst we have been learning about the continent of Africa. Miss Cox was very impressed with the standard of homework; putting countries of the world in alphabetical order.


On Friday 18th March we really loved participating in Red Nose Day. We brought donations of money to school and were allowed to wear our own clothes. Many of us wore red and the cute Red Nose Day noses. We watched a very moving dvd about a boy called Francis, who could not afford to go to school. It made us realise how important it is to support Red Nose Day and that we are very fortunate that we all attend such a lovely school.
