Date: 7th Mar 2024 @ 5:35pm

What a great day we've had for World Book Day, the costumes have been amazing! We've wrote our own sequel to a story, made bookmarks and had a virtual author visit from Rabat Kaduji where we listened to her new book 'I'm Not Sleepy'. We even had the opportunity to draw some of the pictures from her book too. We've played lots of games and read countless stories and poems. Well done Year 2!

Unidentified object in the playground, by Miss Ward

Date: 7th Mar 2024 @ 5:23pm

The infant playground was awash with excitement and amazement on Monday morning. Year 2 discovered a pile of broken bits, nuts, bolts and wires scattered around the playground. We coned and taped everything off safely and investigated what it could be. The children thought it could have been a rocket or spaceship that had landed. Keep an eye out for updates coming soon.

Y2LW Hi-Impact Lego Workshop, by Miss Ward

Date: 12th Feb 2024 @ 5:20pm

Y2LW have had a brilliant morning in our computing workshop with Hi-Impact. The children explored Lego that linked to an iPad. The children worked in pairs to follow instructions to make a Lego windmill that moved when programmed with the correct algorithm. After some exploration, the children then used these building skills to make a Lego car with a sensor. The children then programmed the car to stop and start when they held up a colour to the car's sensor. Each child had the opportunity to participate in building and programming the Lego. What an amazing morning for all!

Y2 Enterprise Day 2024, by Miss Ward

Date: 11th Feb 2024 @ 9:33am

Year 2 chose to sell playdoh and gloop for Enterprise Day. We spent some time deciding on colours and prices as a year group. We made over 150 pots and bags of playdoh and gloop for the whole school to purchase. Some were pink, blue, orange, green and some ever contained glitter! The children worked hard making, packaging and advertising our products to sell. We set up our stall in the hall with our brightly coloured table decorations. Each child had a go at making, advertising or selling our playdoh and gloop, the whole school loved it! Well done Year 2!

Enterprise Day 2024 - how we spent our hard earned profit 📈, by Mrs Harris

Date: 10th Feb 2024 @ 6:58pm

Year 3 raised a total of £43.75 during our enterprise afternoon! The children decided to buy books and stationery. Each class now has a set of 8 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' books and a stacking pencil each. 

From planning to making, advertising to selling, the children had a great time building their enterprise skills, which I'm sure will help them in the future.

Thank you to all the children in OLSE for supporting Year 3!


Enterprise Day Marketing Videos and Posters, by Mrs Harris

Date: 1st Feb 2024 @ 9:46pm

The children had a wonderful time during the preparation for Enterprise Day 2024!

Their entrepreneurial skills were certainly put to the test and they all did so well.

Modern life means our young people need to be resilient, innovative and not afraid to experiment - all important for entrepreneurs.  

We are using Enterprise Day to develop a range of skills in our pupils. These skills include:- team work, financial literacy, organising and planning, using initiative, negotiation, taking risks, creativity and innovation.

A key part of enterprise is the making of goods, followed by the marketing and selling of these goods. 

Take a look at our presentation / marketing videos and see what you like the look of 😊

In Year 2, we have enjoyed reading our class text 'The Marvellous Moon Map'. We discussed what we would take on an adventure to find the moon. We read we went on our own adventure in the classroom to explore different settings from the book. We explored a forest/woodland setting and a lake setting. The children used their senses to describe what they could see, hear, smell and touch. We had a brilliant time!

Collaborative stained glass window design, by Mrs Schultz

Date: 20th Jul 2023 @ 4:45pm

As part of our Year 2 Art topic on stained glass windows, we decided to make a collaborative modern stained glass window design. Each child had an A3 piece of black card. They made a design template using masking tape, then coloured in each shape on their design using oil pastels. When they peeled away the masking tape, they could not believe the results! We then had a team of children piecing them together like a jigsaw. When we put a gold cross on the top, they looked beautiful! Great work Year 2! 

Stained Glass Windows, by Mrs Schultz

Date: 20th Jul 2023 @ 4:39pm

The Year 2 children sketched their stained glass window designs in Art, using sketching pencils. They then used watercolour paints to make them look as colourful as the windows in Our Lady's Church. Look at some of their beautiful designs! Well done Year 2!
