Chick news!

Yipeeee exciting news today- One of Mavis' eggs has hatched. Welcome to the world little chick! As you can see it isn't a yellow chick, but yellow and brown. The breed is called a Cream Legbar hen. Lovely addition to our last week of school :-)

Smalley's Summer Show 2017

Well done children, what a super show.

Thank you for all of your hard work and effort.

 

 

'Eggciting' times ahead!

As you may have seen, we are expecting chicks in the last week of term! Mavis currently has a clutch of 7 eggs that she is incubating and doing a very good job with. Today she has been moved into a separate hutch so that she can incubate in peace and get ready for her chicks. 

Incubation and chick development takes 21 days which is amazing that a new life can be made in just 3 weeks. Today is day 10 so we have carefully checked the eggs development. This is called 'candling'. To candle an egg you need to shine a torch at the bottom of the egg in a very dark room. As you can see, by day 10 the egg will show lots of veins and blood vessels- this is called mapping. 

Mavis has done a good job so far and her chicks are developing. The eggs are half way there so keep your fingers crossed for the due date! 

If you have anything you'd like to know about the hens, or Mavis and her eggs just remember you can ask Miss Tulley or Mrs Reckless :-)

3d Shapes in Class 2

Shapes

This week in our Mathematics lessons we have been examining 3D shapes. We've had great fun stacking the shapes into super tall towers as well as finding out which ones roll and which ones do not.

We have been using some great online games too.  Here are the links:

https://www.sheppardsoftware.com/mathgames/earlymath/shapes_shoot.htm

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/maths/shape_space/3d_shapes/play/

We have been using the important language and recognising shapes just from their description.

We have been using

vertex        vertices        faces        edges        curved        straight        

circular        square        triangular        rectangular

To earn a merit I wonder if you can create a riddle to see if we can guess what the shape is. 

Here is an example:

I have 3 faces. 

One of my faces is curved and the other two are circular.

I have two curved edges and I can be stacked.

What am I?

Afternoon tea with my Mummy!

How wonderful to welcome our Mummies and special ladies to our afternoon tea today.

We wanted to say a special thank you for all that you do, each and every day.

Mummies and other special ladies in our lives, including Grannies and Aunties, were treated to some lovely singing, presentation of special work, a poem, a gift of flowers and piano music.  Our special guests also enjoyed freshly baked scones, baked with our own Smalley eggs (thank you Mrs Mason), shortbread with strawberries (thank you Mrs Straw), freshly baked cakes (thank you Mrs Pace) and of course plenty of hugs and time to chat.  The children enjoyed their freshly baked biscuits made by our kitchen staff - thank you.

Thank you so much everyone for coming - it was really super to see you all. If you were unable to make it, we hope you enjoyed your special gifts.

Happy Mother's Day xx
