Spring 2, Week 5

This week in Class One we have been visiting our ‘space shop’ which appeared overnight in our classroom! We have been using 1p and 2p coins to add up simple amounts and ‘purchase’ space suits, moon bots, a mars rover robot, telescope and lots more! It was very tricky when we were only given 2p coins and so we have had to remember to tap them twice, to understand that they are worth 2 pennies.

On the topic of Mars rovers, we have been looking at how technology can help both astronauts and people back on Earth, to do lots of jobs for us. We watched a Cbeebies video of how computers are all around us, controlling hand dryers and taps, traffic lights, automatic doors, escalators, microwaves and many more! We then began to think about robots and used our own mini robots called Ozobots. It was great fun drawing mazes on paper and watching them respond to the different colours to do tricks and move around our pieces of paper, we were all very engaged in our robot learning!

On Tuesday we also took part in our school’s ‘Experience Easter Outside’ day and got to take part in lots of different activities, based on the different parts of the Easter story. We will be doing lots more Easter work next week and look forward to singing some songs in church at the Easter Service on Thursday.

Thank you to all who attended parent’s evening this week and we look forward to seeing more of you attending on Monday evening. Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Spring 2, Week 5

In English, we have been researching our favourite sea animal using different sources- Ipads and non-fiction books. We will use this information to create an informative poster about a sea animal.

In maths we recapped our money knowledge by using a range of coins to make different amounts. We have also been learning about 3D shapes. In pairs we used straws and plasticine to make a variety of 3D shapes and we also looked around the school to find different everyday 3D shapes.

This week we have also been on our Easter Journey. As a class we reflected upon the Easter events at the different stations which were located at the church and around the school grounds.

Reminders:

Thursday 4th April – Easter service (9.15am in the hall)

Friday 5th April – End of term (school finishes at 2pm)

Wednesday 24th April – Summer term begins

Have a lovely weekend.

Spring 2 Week 4

This week was science week and the children enjoyed two days of lots of different scientific investigations and activities! Amonst many other things, in Class 3 we investigated what would happen if we dropped a raisin into a glass of still and sparkling water (would it float or sink?) and we had lots of fun making blue slime using cornflour and water! The children loved seeing how the slime would turn from solid to liquid in just a matter of seconds. 

This week we also worked on our subtraction skills in maths and used the number line method to help us find the difference! In Literacy we wrote an explanation text on 'How to plant a seed'. 

In PE we did lots of running and counted our steps using a pedometer!

We hope you all have an enjoyable weekend!

We have really enjoyed our week! Science Days were definitely the best part!

The children took part it lots of different investigations over the two days and have shown themselves to be brilliant scientists! The discussion, language and recording of ideas has been brilliant. 

We've also had fun sketching Tutankhmun's burial mask and finishing off research. 

- Parents' evening slips have gone home so please check you have got yours.

Have a lovely weekend!!

Spring 2 Week 4

This week we have been working really hard being scientists during our 2 science days. On Wednesday we did lots of investigations to do with space, for example making and testing parachutes and looking at and creating the solar system. On Thursday we worked together in our class to find out what happens to skittles when you add warm water to them; which material would be best to use as an astro-nappy and which crisps were the healthiest out of Doritos, ready salted, Wotsits and squares.

Have a lovely weekend.
