It’s September and the new Class 2 are meeting the snails. All of the children were brave enough to either hold a snail or stroke the shell.
Passing germs to one another can be as easy as shaking hands. Using glitter instead of real germs was a clear way for us to see the
‘germs’ spreading around everyone.
After that we all needed to make sure our hands were properly clean again. Using a simple instruction sheet we followed
each step to get back to germ free hands.
Crossing the road is a serious business and Mandy and Jackie, from the Scarborough and Whitby Road Safety Team, came to school to help us learn
a bit more about the Green Cross Code as part of our class history topic on transport. We found out about the safe places to cross a road: over a
footbridge, through a subway, at a zebra crossing, at a pelican or toucan crossing, with a lollipop man or woman or using a traffic island are
some of the places we know are safe. We all practised using a zebra crossing and a pelican crossing.
Mandy and Jackie taught is a poem with actions to help us remember the Green Cross Code:
“When you want to cross the road
You must use the Green Cross Code.
Find a safe place and stop.
Look all around for traffic.
Listen and think
Before you cross the road.”
On Tuesday 8th November Class 2 set off early from school to visit the National Railway Museum in York. The sun was out and our spirits were up!
We found out about ‘The Father of the Railways’ – George Stephenson, his son Robert and his friend Henry Booth. These men changed history
with their steam powered engine ‘Rocket’.
For the rest of the day we explored the museum and marvelled at how enormous the steam engines are.
“Look at me Mum, I’m driving the Mallard! Now, which one is the brake?”
Time to relax in the Shinkansen.
