Class 2 assembly »

This half term we have been learning about plants, spring and how we can care for God’s world.

Class 2’s assembly was held on 16th of March.  The children worked very hard on learning their words and remembering facts about what plants need in order to grow well.

The children have been carrying out experiments – finding out what plants need to grow.  We have planted sunflowers and cress. We are looking forward to finding out which sunflower has grown the tallest. We  have also designed and made greenhouses using recycled materials as part of our science and design technology topics.

World Book Day »

Thursday 3rd January 2011 was World Book Day. Pupils and staff at St Oswald’s came dressed as characters from books (and some from television shows and films). We held a special assembly and the children had to work out who the staff were dressed as. Lots of other book related activities took place in the classrooms. Everyone had a fantastic day and went home with a special book token. Remember to exchange your token before Sunday 27th March 2011! (more…)
