Magpies (Y1 and 2)
Welcome to Magpies!
Please take a look at our class page often as you will see regular updates of all the exciting things that we are learning about this year!
Home Learning Timetable
I have uploaded a virtual tour of the new classroom layout for those of you who are returning to school on Monday to view to see what your classroom will now look like.
I will continue to upload home learning tasks for those of you who are at home but I will be unable to respond to Seesaw posts or emails right away. All activities will be posted to Seesaw now and will be available at 9am everyday for you to work your way through at your leisure.
I have also uploaded the new home learning timetable which is very similar to the one that the children in school will be following.

Our Adventure to Chatham Dockyard!
This week Magpies and Robins went on an adventure to Chatham Dockyard!
On Wednesday we set off on our adventure bright and early in the morning. Once we arrived Magpies went to explore the huge submarine!
After that we went on a tour around the old lifeboats and were able to climb aboard and pretend that we were lifeguards.
Next we became pirates and went aboard the HMS Gannet! We had lots of fun being pirates.
After lunch we explored the ropery and we were lucky enough to make our own piece of rope.
Finally we explored the HMS Cavlier and were able to ring the bell aboard the ship.
We all had lots of fun exploring Chatham Dockyard!
This week in Magpies we have been learning about Canada for international week. On Monday we looked at Niagara Falls and labelled the different waterfalls, river and the bridge. On Tuesday we imagined what it would be like to travel to Niagara Falls and we wrote a description of what we would see, hear, taste, touch and smell.
In PE we worked with a partner to perform a Canadian Hoop dance- this was very fun!
On Thursday we were lucky enough to taste teste yummy pancakes with maple syrup!
