What a whirlwind day we have had! We were delighted to welcome the children into Year 2 this morning and the day has whizzed by.
As well as practising estimating in Maths, the children have also done some drawing, a little bit of writing and started to learn about Samuel Pepys and the Great Fire of London. Some were horrified to think that all that time ago there was no LEGO…! Tomorrow is a very important day in the history of the fire as it will be exactly 348 years since the fire started in Pudding Lane.
Most excitingly of all, the children were measured for allocation of violins and ‘cellos. A few of them were disappointed not to be able to actually play them today but that will happen very soon!
Lunch was welcomed as 12 noon seemed a long time coming – fish fingers, chips, curry and rice were all on offer, as well as the usual salad and cold meat options. Most importantly of all, the chocolate brownie went down a storm!
Everyone was quite tired at the end of the day but all concluded that they’d had a great time and would be back tomorrow!
