Year 2’s week with Miss Bovill

Year 2 have made a brilliant start to the new term! They have worked very hard whilst Miss. Metcalfe has been away, spending most of their time under the sea. From deep sea diving descriptions in English, to underwater food chains and the life cycle of sea turtles in Science, there’s not much left of our underwater world to explore. Thank you for a lovely week Year 2, its been a pleasure teaching you.

Once again, I have successfully fooled Y6 into thinking that they are doing something exciting and different.  We have started the annual Electric Car Engineering Challenge, where the brief is to design and make a model car which is powered by electricity and which can not only travel in a perfectly straight line, but can…Continue Reading
