Summer Term Learning

This term, we are continuing our science topic 'Plants'. We learnt about the different parts of a plant such as anther, stigma and style and we found out about the different jobs they do. We then dissected some flowers ourselves to identify the different parts. 


Children have really enjoyed learning the skills needed to play handball this term. It is a fast-paced team sport in which two teams of seven players each pass a ball using the their hands with the aim of throwing it into the goal of the opposing team. We're so lucky to be able to play on our artificial pitch.


Shakespeare Class Visit to Cheddar Gorge and Caves


On Friday before half term, Shakespeare Class enjoyed a fantastic class trip to Cheddar Gorge and Caves as part of our local geography topic on Somerset and the Mendips.


The trip gave the children a brilliant opportunity to experience the wonders of the limestone caves and see up-close some amazing examples of stalactite and stalagmite formations in Gough's Cave. As part of the trip, we visited the Museum of Pre-history to see Stone Age artefacts and to learn more about the history of the Cheddar Man. The children loved the multi-media experience in Cox's Cave which told the story of Early Man using sound, lighting and images within the depths of the show cave. Finally, the children climbed the 274 steps up Jacob's Ladder and then 48 more up the Lookout Tower to be rewarded by the far-reaching views of the Mendips, Cheddar Gorge and Reservoir and beyond. 


The children loved the day and were beautifully behaved. It was lovely to receive the following email from the Manager at Cheddar Caves,

"It was a real pleasure to have your Year 2 and 3 children with us today. They were an absolute credit to your school. I hope they all enjoyed their visit and please pass on my thanks to them from our staff for being so well behaved!"

Spring Term Learning

Netball Festival at The Cathedral School 

On Thursday 16th March, Shakespeare Class were invited to a netball festival hosted by The Cathedral School. The children played a number of mini netball games in mixed teams with year 3 children from The Cathedral School.  The children really enjoyed the afternoon and they all played with great enthusiasm and team spirit. It was wonderful for them to have the opportunity to play netball alongside children from our neighbouring school. At the end of the day, they all enjoyed juice, fruit and cookies.
