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.
We used Doodle Buddy on the iPads to create amazing firework pictures, we thought about the colours and shapes of the fireworks.
We make a cylinder for the castle, a cone for the toadstool, tabs for the bridge, folds for the cottage and cutting / attaching skills for the trees. We then used these to retell the story.
We used primary colours to mix shades, hues and tones of green as we received a letter stating the Woodland need problem solvers!
The Year 2 children studied bark the replicated their patterns using clay.
We used aerial maps of the school to locate the goblins, we then used preposition words to describe where the goblins were hiding!
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!
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!
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.
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.
