Visit from Cheshire Wildlife Trust

Last week we had our second visit from Cheshire Wildlife Trust. At the end of their first visit, they left a night camera to capture what nocturnal animals are up to whilst we are sleeping. 

Have a look at what we found.....

Visit to Cheadle Mosque

Today we visited Cheadle Mosque to support our learning about Islam. We had a fascinating morning and learnt so much about the religion. We found out about:

The features of a mosque

The role of the Imam

The Five Pillars

The Arabic alphabet

Scroll through the photos to find out more.

The King's Coronation

Today we celebrated the King's Coronation. Over the past few weeks, the children have been finding out about why we have a coronation and the significance of different objects that are used throughout. Today we had a parade of crowns, sung songs linked to the coronation followed by looking at photographs of coronations over the time. We found out who were the monarchs over the past 200 years and sequenced them into a timeline. We thought about what was invented during each reign and discussed what could be invented during King Charles' reign. 

Cross Country Festival


Yesterday Ladybrook hosted a Key Stage 1 Cross Country Festival. This was organised by Stockport Shapes and was enjoyed by other local primary schools. 

The children were fantastic and tried their best to run 500m around the track and across the field. Year 2 girls were overall winners!

Chill Factore visit

Year 2 enjoyed a fabulous day at the Chill Factore. Linked to our Antarctica topic, we experienced the freezing cold to do a range of activities. We whizzed down the snow on sledges, spun down the slopes on donuts and flew down the slide. Absolutely fantastic!

We also used the climbing wall to challenge ourselves - both physically and mentally - could we overcome our nerves and climb to the top? Have a look at the photographs to see what we did. 

World Book Day 

Today we celebrated World Book Day. Our theme this year was to dress up as a word. I wonder if you can work out what any of the words are? See if you can find disheveled, camouflaged, pupil, sporty, patriotic, spring, rainbow, princess, greedy, robber, flowers and comfy.


As well as dressing up, we held a cake sale and shared books with our Year 5 buddies. 

Staircase House

Last week we visited Staircase House as part of our Great Fire of London topic. The children played different roles such as Samuel Pepys, King Charles 2nd and Jane the maid and reenacted the story.

We also found out about fire marks and how wattle and daub was used to build Tudor houses. Scroll through the photos to find out about our day. 

Walk to Bramhall Park

As part of our geography topic, we followed a map on our walk to Bramhall Park. Whilst we were there, we sketched Bramall Hall which was built in Tudor times.

We also planned the setting for our story based on Katie in London. Our version is going to be set in Bramhall Park so we used our senses to think about what we can see, hear, smell and touch. 

Birds of Prey visit

On Tuesday we welcomed Gauntlet Birds of Prey to school. The children thoroughly enjoyed seeing the animals close up and hearing all about them.
