BBC - Great British Bunting

With so many events cancelled or restricted for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8th May, BBC Radiowanted to come up with a way for people across the UK to mark the occasion and express their pride in our country and to remember and honour the men and women of WW2.


They have sent some guidance on making some bunting that you can display in your window, so we wanted to pass this on.


If you do make some bunting then we would love to see some photos of it.

Science 26.03.20

Try this cool Science investigation so the children can understand how the wings of a plane work. This is linked to our topic (The sky is never the limit). 

You will see that the shape of the wing allows the paper to lift when the air from the hairdryer is switched on, just like a plane wing!

PE Challenge in Partnership with the Total 14 Football Academy!


Craig from Total 14 has today set an online challenge to his Academy players  which includes White Rock children as he comes in to provide us with our football coaching.


There are 20 football teams that Craig has described only by using emojis. He has not given us the answers yet - so between us do you reckon that we can crack the 20 and send them to Craig before anybody else can?


To help you out, I reckon 14 is New York Red Bulls...


Chat to family, FaceTime your friends and see how many you can get.

Email me your ideas ileaman@white-rock-primary.torbay.sch.uk.


Feel free to design any others and send them to me and I'll see if I can guess them!


Good Luck from Mr Leaman!

25.03.20 - Growing Challenge

Sunflowers, with their bright petals and strong stems, are well known for being 'happy' flowers. We would like to challenge all Year 2 children to plant a sunflower seed on Friday 27th March and watch them grow.


If you don't have sunflower seeds you can you plant another type of seed and share photos and measurements  showing how your plant is growing. Maybe you could plant a seed from an apple, avocado or grape that you have eaten.


It will be fantastic to share photos and measurements every Friday so think carefully about where you plant your seed and what it needs to grow.


We look forward to seeing how they grow.

24/03/20 Thanks for the all the jokes you have been sending in. Follow the link below to see some of the Cranes telling their favourite jokes. Keep them coming (videos more than welcome). 

Science Learning 24.03.20

Why not try this fun Science Experiment...all you need should be available around your home! 


Explanation - All liquids have a 'surface tension' which means they can hold a certain amount of weight before they collapse and an object sinks (this is why it can hold the paper boat). When you add washing up liquid to your finger it weakens the surface tension behind the boat and therefore the boat slides forward!

20.03.20 - Dance

In Dance, we have been exploring linking different types of jumps to create a dance. Below is the information we used in class to help. Can you use this to try to create a dance on your own? We call this a solo dance. You could get someone at home to film you and then email it to me, Mrs Tyson – ntyson@white-rock-primary.torbay.sch.uk   I would love to see your dances and smiling faces! Enjoy creating your solo dances and I look forward to seeing some of them.

There will be some Maths images and some calculations to solve, your child is familiar with solving these problems but may need some support to read some of the questions.
