'Sit up straight'... yes ma'am

Year 2 went back in time today to school in Victorian times.  We experienced many lessons from Victorian time and felt privileged to be able to go to school. Writing on slates was hard and copperplate dip pens also require a lot of skill. We were so well behaved we didn't face the cane! Miss Venables Kyrke was pleased no DH pupil had to wear the dunce’s hat too! You will see we spent our lunch in the Castle Grounds in Guildford and played with a variety of Victorian toys. We had a lunch of ham sandwiches wrapped in greaseproof paper, apples and Victoria sponge cake.

Shake it up

As part of Year 2's topic on the Victorians we have been looking at servants and contrasting life for rich and poor people. We decided to make some butter using a jam jar, cream and strong muscles. It took a lot of energy to change the cream to butter but it looked pretty cool.  We then took it down to lunch to have on bread rolls.

A journey through the air...

 As part of our journeys topic we are looking at air travel and Pre-Prep 1 had great fun first making and then flying their paper aeroplanes up on the pitches! They measured how far they flew and some of them came back and made some improvements before they took them home for the weekend. Mrs Bentley and Mrs Manger showed them how to do it!
