Remembrance Day

We all made our own poppies to wear in our ‘Values Assembly’. We also chose from various activities to create pieces to remember those who died, both people and animals.

Firework pictures using ICT

We used Doodle Buddy on the iPads to create amazing firework pictures, we thought about the colours and shapes of the fireworks.

Ocarina Club!

Each half term we have been running Ocarina club with Key Stage 1 children. The children have learned how to hold the ocarina and make a noise by blowing into the mouthpiece. They have also learned a well known song each half term. The year two children recently performed ‘London’s Burning’ in assembly which was fantastic, well done to those pupils!

Rainforest Explorers

Maths Monkey is going to the Amazon Rainforest! Shall we go with him?

We will need to find out about rainforests before we decide.

This week we located the Amazon Rainforest and found out about the animals that live there. 

Look at our wonderful Rainforest homework!

Successful Giant Book Swap!!

On Thursday 7th March we all dressed up for ‘World Book Day’. We wrote about our characters and discussed what we knew about them.

We had the opportunity to bring our unwanted books into school and in exchange for these we received book tokens. There were lots of books to choose from, some of us took some lovely new books home. This helped reuse and reduce landfill by giving unwanted books a loving new home. A great success, well done. Thank you to parents for the effort you made with your child’s costumes, they all looked amazing.

Look what we found!!!

A basket appeared in our classroom, it contained lots of old artifacts including old bandages, a book, a tea towel with Queen Victoria on it, cotton wool, a glass medicine bottle, a bonnet and a lantern.

We passed the artifacts around the circle and discussed who they could belong to. We then found an old photo of a lady. We wrote enquiry questions around the picture. Some of our ideas were: Maybe she is a: farmer, doctor, nurse, shepherd, vet.

We then googled a nurse from a long time ago and found out it was Florence Nightingale. We will be finding out more about her over the next couple of weeks.
