Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre

The children had a fantastic time at Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre today. They explored the museum by going back in time and climbed aboard a real life trawler where they were all given a role to play. They found out what life was like in Grimsby and how hard life at sea could be. They dressed up, searched for objects and listened carefully to the information that they were told. What a super day!

Famous Explorers

As part of our History Fortnight the children in Year 2 are leaning about famous explorers. Today they learnt the names of some very important explorers. These included Christopher Columbus, Sir Walter Raleigh and Captain Cook. They even learnt about modern day explorers including Dame Ellen MacArthur. The children created their own timeline and sequenced these explorers chronologically. 

Problem SolvingĀ 

Charlie and Eddie had a tricky problem to solve in maths today. If a spider climbs up a 30 metre building and each day he climbs 5 metres but slides back down 1 metre, how long will it take the spider to reach the top?

They worked brilliantly together and solved the problem. 

Amazing Openers

This morning in Year 2 the children started to write the opening of their story based on our class clip. They are all fantastic but we were especially impressed with Daisy and Ray who used fantastic vocabulary choices to really set the scene. Here they are looking very pleased with themselves.
