A fantastic day at Blackpool Zoo with Year 1 and 2 for our end of Year trip consolidating Science work on animal classification and Geography work comparing the coastal locations of Blackpool and the Caribbean. Wonderful behaviour by all.

Today was Caribbean Carnival Day! After all our geography work comparing the coastal features and cultures of Blackpool and St Lucia in the Caribbean, we celebrated with a carnival day. We made Jamaican beef patties, jerk chicken, rice and peas, plantain, sweet dumplings and fruit kebabs! It was a very busy morning and all the children showed excellent cooking skills, and most were very adventurous and had a taste of all the different foods. We listened to Caribbean music, and even had a try of our own on the Jumbie Jams! We wore our bright carnival hats and shared our food with the teachers we had invited. A wonderful day in Year 2!

This week is Smoke Free Week at St James’ as we are going to become a Smoke Free Gates and Smoke Free Sports School. The children have been learning about how to keep their hearts and lungs healthy, and as part of this we recorded our pulses before and after exercise.

We are now designing posters to promote clean air around our school and discourage parents from smoking around our gates and at sports events.

This term we are comparing coastal environments in Geography, looking at the similar and different features of St. Lucia in the Caribbean and Blackpool in England. We did some fantastic research homework which we shared with our friends in class as part of our information gathering. Well done everyone!
