Beegu’s visit to Brook

On Thursday Big Acorns and Saplings class had a surprise visit from Beegu and we were very excited to ask her lots of questions about her home planet. We found out that her favourite food is red sparkly jelly and that her water is green. We told Beegu that we would be fixing her spaceship for her so that she could get home to her family soon! 

Using our senses

In Big Acorns this week we have been learning about how our senses help us to understand the world around us. We then used our sense of hearing to listen to different sounds on the computer and we tried to guess what they were. We enjoyed tasting fruit pastilles and guessing the flavour of different crisps by smelling them. 

UFO crash-landing on Brook field

Last week something very strange crash-landed in our field. We took out clipboards and magnifying glasses to explore the area and we found lots of things including a space ship, footprints, a fuel bottle and a space helmet. We think it might belong to a little alien called Beegu who might have crashed on our planet. We read the first few pages of Beegu’s story and then we wrote speech bubbles to translate what she might be saying to the rabbits and trees.

A Celtic Roundhouse at Brook

Mr Rumbold is very excited to be supporting the pupils in building our very own Celtic Roundhouse in the forest school area at the top of our school field.

 

Roundhouses were the standard form of housing for Celtic tribes, and were built from the natural materials they had available to them, with the walls being either dry stone or a ring of support poles.  Our Year 2 children have already started to construct our roundhouse using wooden poles, and other pupils are looking forward to contributing to the project.
