After learning about the life cycle of a honey bee the children went into Forest School and with the help of Mrs Bull they made honey and lemon drinks using a 'kelly kettle' over the fire. Afterwards the children enjoyed sipping the super sweet drink.
All the children came to school dressed in their spottiest clothes, some of the children had even created their own spotty outfit themselves at home. The day started with a spectacular assembly by 2B. Afterwards Year 2 had a danceathon in the hall and the children were keen to show off their fantastic dance moves. A lovely day was had by all.
Some children visited Forest School which had been transformed into a beautiful Winter Wonderland. Toasted marshmallows, decorating Christmas trees and fun in the snow, what a wonderful experience it was!
On Tuesday 12th September Year 2 visited Tamworth Castle as part of the 'engage' stage of their Cornerstones topic on Tower, Tunnels and Turrets.

They were able to help the maid dress the table ready for the Lord of the Castle to have his lunch and help put a suit of armour on a knight. It was a super experience for the children.
