ELM - Y2
On Thursday 23rd February we were fortunate to have a visit by Tom Ridgway. Mr Ridgway is an education officer for the RNLI and he spoke about the history of the RNLI and its evolution in to the modern coastal rescue service it is today. The children shared with him their knowledge of safety flags at the beach and some children were given the opportunity to try on lifeboat and lifeguard uniforms. Lots of questions were asked and entered and we all found it very informative.
On the last day of term 3, Elm performed their class worship based on the theme of Coastlines. A learned versed poem was recited and interesting facts about the coastline and how to stay safe were relayed. The children’s beautiful artwork was paraded and descriptive poetry read aloud.
This was all accompanied by some fantastic piano playing led by our peripatetic teacher Lisa Williams.
To finish our DT project Beach huts, Elm class spent a day designing and creating their huts. We looked at how to strengthen materials and how to bend materials by joining. The children had a go at using the saw and covering their creations with card to bring it to life.
The resulting designs were very impressive!
