Autumn 2018

Traditional Tales

We launched our new topic with a big dressing up day where children could come dressed up as their favourite character.  We then wrote poems about our characters. 

Andy Goldsworthy study

We have been enjoying the colours in autumn while observing seasonal change.   Here is some of the artwork we created on a lovely sunny afternoon. 

Dinosaurs Love Underpants

We have started our term by launching into a study of dinosaurs following reading this hilarious book.  Not only has a dinosaur egg been hatching under our eyes in the classroom, but we have also been helping dinosaur eggs hatch outside using a special 'magic spray'........

Summer Term 2018

 Europe

This half term we have really enjoyed learning about Europe.  Highlights have been learning about France, Spain and Italy.  We were really lucky to have a visit from our French exchange partners which heightened the children's interest as they were able to get to know the children a little.  Another popular activity was making a Spanish omelette and we have even had a go at flamenco dancing!  Here is some of the children's project work showing European landmarks and flags: 

       

 

Monet

Robins have loved learning about Monet as part of our Europe topic and here is some of their inspired work: 

  

 

European Picnic

To mark the end of our topic and term, we decided to hold a 'European picnic' to celebrate!  Here our some of our amazing contributions:

 

  

School life in the past

Our class was very lucky because we got to interview Jude's Grandma and Jack's Grandmother. We had a great time asking them lots of questions about what school was like for them ( we just hope we didn't bombard them with too many questions! ). We also went back in time to 1912 using our magic spiral. Miss. Jones pretended to be a strict Victorian teacher and we had mini Victorian style Maths and English lessons. We also learnt about the punishments that some children would face if they misbehaved. 

 

PE

In PE we have been working on our balancing skills. We played a balloon relay race which tested our multi-tasking skills. We had to hop on one foot, tap cones and bounce a balloons , all at the same time! It was tricky to start with but we all persevered and got there in the end. 

 

 

 

Living things and their Habitats

We have been studying living things and their Habitats in science. We went out on a nature walk to a woodland habitat to find things that were living, non-living or never alive. We had a great time and found some very interesting items.

 

We have also been mini-beast hunting around the playground. We used magnifying glasses and special devices called Pooters which suck up insects into a pot so that you can see the insects up close. We made a tally chart of the insects we found and then put the information into a pictogram for maths.

 

 The Disgusting Sandwich

We started our term with a bang as we launched into our new text 'The Disgusting Sandwich'.  The children loved re-enacting the story:

Then we created our own version- 'The Disgusting Ice- Lolly' in a new setting of Clifton village:
