The latest news from Seahorses & Oysters


Seahorses class are enjoying playing UNO. Mrs Clarke taught the children the rules and they are all desperate to beat her!

If you have any unused Uno cards at home we will happily make sure they are looked after.

The Great Fire of London

The children in Year 2 had a fantastic morning exploring life in London in 1666. They learned that children did not go to school back then but instead went to work from a very young age. They then tried an assortment of jobs; leather working, weaving, candlestick holder making, apothecary, making spice bags, bread making and perfumer.

After this the children heard the story of how the Great Fire in 1666 started, about Thomas Farriner the baker and the bakery where the fire began. The children then learned why the fire spread so quickly and why it raged for four days.

The children had a wonderful learning experience, time travelling back to 1666 and the staff enjoyed themselves too!

We enjoyed our Library visit

The children in Seahorses had a lovely visit to the Library. Not only did they find lots of lovely books to look at but……

They found out that it is free to join

That a Library card lets you borrow up to 14 books at a time

You can use any Library and there are six in the Southend area (Southchurch, Westcliff, Leigh on Sea, The Forum in Southend, Eastwood, Shoebury)

There are lots of activities and clubs to take part in at the Library too, for example a lego club, crochet club, mindfulness colouring in and so much more.

You can find out details on Southend Library‘The Forum’ social media pages or Mrs Conyard has a small amount of Library card application forms.

I am sure Miss Appleyard would love to hear that you all visited the Library at half term!!!

Nature Area

Both Year 2 classes had a busy time in the Nature Area. They learnt new scientific vocabulary - predator, prey, carnivore, herbivore and omnivore. By playing many games they saw these words in action. They also thought about the wildlife living in the nature area so we fed the birds using cheerio necklaces and fat balls.

Dinosaur habitiats

Seahorses have been learning about dinosaurs and their habitats. They created a micro habitat for their dinosaur thinking about camouflage so the dinosaur could either hide from their predator or stalk their prey.

A winning flight!

Some children in Seahorses have chosen to make paper planes during provision. They have been challenged to fly their plane and measure the distance. The plane that flew the furthest this week flew an impressive 10 metres 55 cm!


Gymnastic Dinosaurs!

Year 2 Oyster class performed gymnastics linked to their topic of Dinosaurs today. They were working individually and as a group to hold a balance in a dinosaur shape. Lots of creative ideas, along with balance and thoughtful presentation took place!

Man-made or natural

Year 2 had a fabulous morning in the nature area. They have been studying materials and today, we discussed differences between man-made and natural materials. The first activity was to describe materials whilst their partner was blindfolded. The blindfolded person had to guess what the material was. We introduced many new words to describe. Seahorses then tested the amount of water to sand to make the best sandcastle they could with interesting results.

Paper Chains

The children in Seahorses are preparing for Christmas. They were making paper chains using strips of paper.

A group of children joined their paper chains together. We measured the length of their creation in the hall.Twelve children made the longest chain of 12m 30 cm. One child worked conscientiously on his own and created a chain 2m 40cm.

We then discussed which child had created more links in their chain.We worked out that 12 metres divided by 12 children meant that each child had created just over a metre, whereas one child had made a chain that was double that length.

Spice Boxes

The children in Seahorses finished off their Judaism topic in Religious Education by learning about Shabbat - by making special spice boxes (this also linked to their maths learning about 3d shapes). They decorated a net of a cuboid with pictures of things they like to do with their families and some added family member names. The boxes were then constructed by the children so they can put special items in at home.

Getting ready for battle!

Year 2 Seahorses had a great learning experience in their outside area on Thursday. They made suits of armour, axes and shields. They built a huge castle and defended it from attackers. They used collaborative play to demonstrate their learning.

Making Challah Bread

The children in Year 2 have been learning about Shabbat as part of their Judaism Topic in Religious Education and made their own version of Challah bread. IT WAS DELICIOUS!

3D Shapes

Seahorses consolidated their 3d shape knowledge by going on a shape hunt outside in the playground. We found cylinders, cubes, cuboids, spheres and even a trianglular prism. Can you spot them in our pictures?

Investigating materials

Oysters had a busy morning in the nature area. As part of their Science topic regarding Materials, Oysters blindfolded each other and described and touched a variety of resources. They discussed and used a wide vocabulary for describing. Later in the morning, they moved to making the best mixture of sand and water to produce the 'best' sandcastle. Some groups overdid the water and ended up with a sloppy mess whilst others, needed to use more water! An informative discussion followed.

Remember, Remember the Fifth of November

Seahorses have been learning about Bonfire night and why we celebrate the fifth of November. They can recite the poem Remember Remember the Fifth of November and will give you lots of information about Guy Fawkes. Today outside they used chalk to create some firework drawings on the playground adding their onomatopoeia word learning too.

Whizz, crash, sparkle, boom, bang!

Seahorses playing The Colour Game collaboratively

Instructions written by 2 Seahorses

What you need

Skipping rope
Three friends

What to do

First, you need to friends to hold the skipping rope and discuss A colour together.

Next, your other friend has to jump over the skipping rope saying the colours.

Finally, when your friend that's guessing colours get your one that you discussed the person that was guessing swaps with A friend and it goes on and on.


Building Shelters

Children in Seahorses applied their science learning about materials to build shelters for teddies or bugs in the nature area. The teddies were all kept warm, safe and protected from the elements. The bug hotels were luxurious and fun with feathers for benches to create safe landings if they fell!

How to be Thor!

Members of Seahorses class sharing their instructions on how to be a superhero with their class mates. After learning a text 'How to be Spiderman!' with actions, the children in class innovated their story as a whole class producing 'How to be Thor!' before independently applying their new learning in their writing. They have all been superheroes this week!

Oysters finding natural materials

Oysters were very busy in the Nature Area yesterday. As their Science topic is Materials, they used the blindfolds, finding a natural material, presenting it to a friend who in turn had to describe it and guess what it was. Some very descriptive vocabulary was used by all. Moving on, oysters worked in groups to design a natural shelter for a small teddy. Again discussion was key in making their shelter comfortable, protected from wind and rain and durable!

Seahorses enjoying the great outdoors

Year 2 had an amazing afternoon in the nature area. They were superstars at litter picking - collecting a whole bin sack! Thank you Seahorses. They also made potions and food which contained healthy items for our body. Many children had a go at climbing trees and building and designing an obstacle course and fitness trial for others to try.

Oysters in the Nature Area

Oysters had an enjoyable afternoon in the Nature Area. They spent some of the afternoon, pond-dipping. They found many creatures including a water beetle, water-louse, dragon-fly and some frog spawn. Other activities included bug hunting and playing Eagle Eye.

Seahorses in the Nature Area

Seahorses had an enjoyable afternoon in the nature area, they made sure the birds were fed again after being off school for half-term. Some of the children built dens showing excellent construction skills whilst others demonstrated their art skills with mud faces.

Oysters exploring habitats

Oysters learnt about different habitats. We discussed evergreen and deciduous trees, also how the nature area and beach differ as habitats. We fed the birds and managed to bird watch - finding a very friendly robin who came down to say hello.

Oysters in the Nature Area

Oysters enjoyed their chilly day in the nature area. We started colour matching and using our observational skills to find the fairy doors dotted around the nature area. After this, we built our own homes for little teddies, testing whether they were waterproof and warm. Later in the day, Oysters enjoyed tasty smores - marshmallows with biscuits. We also discussed natural and man-made materials describing their features and uses.

Seahorses enjoying the Nature Area

Seahorses had a wonderful day in the Nature Area. Firstly, they enjoyed finding the fairy doors that Year 6 had designed and painted. It required them to use all their observational skills to find them as some of them were tricky and well hidden.

Moving on, they designed shelters for their teddy. They were only allowed to use natural materials found in the nature area.

After a quick break, we enjoyed, for the very first time - smores (marshmallows sandwiched in biscuits) they were delicious. They discussed what a fire needs to burn and certain safety aspects involving the fire.

Seahorses were so well behaved and had an amazing day.

In RE the children were looking at the sky and thinking about how it makes them feel after reading Pslam 8 3-11.


In the nature area we were creating pictures of our favourite illustrations from our whole class reader.
