Do you know how to spot great learning? We do! /

Our mission today has been to recognise the characteristics of a great learner. We talked about what great learning would look like and sound like. We discussed what it might feel like if we walked into a classroom where great learning was happening. We wrote our ideas on post it’s and worked together to agree which we’re the most important. Once we knew what we were looking for we set

Steaming along at Elsecar! /

Year 2 have been learning all about the history of trains today. We visited Elsecar Heritage Centre to see the steam trains and learn all about them.

We stood on the bridge and watched the train go by,

Using our senses /

Today we have been using our senses to explore materials. We discussed what we had found out and used our explanation skills in discussion. We all tried to challenge ourselves in this lesson and tried some head hurt learning. We found a magnifying glass and a flexible pipe that were both made from plastic but were very different. Why was this?
