On Thursday 7th November, Year 2 travelled into London to visit the National Portrait Gallery near Trafalgar Square.
The children took part in a free workshop about portraits and had a superb guide who helped them learn about specific portraits and the paints and techniques used. The children were able to draw their own version of one of the portraits and go crazy with colour by tracing over another.
Afterwards, we walked into Trafalgar Square to have our lunch and soak up the atmosphere and wonderful views.

Tuesley Farm 2019

Tuesley Farm

Published on 18th July

On Thursday 11th July 2019, Year 2 children were fortunate enough to visit working fruit farm ‘Tuesley Farm’ as part of their learning about where food comes from. The day started with being shown how the fruit is stored once picked and then how its packed and distributed to supermarkets. After that, we boarded trailers which took us to the polytunnels where the strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are grown. We were shown how each of them are to be picked and were able to fill up lots of punnets to take and enjoy at home. At lunchtime we walked into the shaded woods where we sat down and enjoyed a well-earned rest. The children were treated to homemade cakes and a pad and crayons to draw with. Before the end of the day we were taken to a big adventure playground which had a zip wire, swings, slides and a football pitch. It was the best school trip ever!

The children had a fabulous first day at CYE, despite the slightly damp weather. They either sailed or built rafts or kayaked or assault coursed - they have really thrown themselves into the activities and the staff have been impressed by their positive attitude and teamwork!
