We made jam sandwiches to help us undestand and write our own instructions.
At home, our children created their own World Book Day character potato. We had lots of our favourite book characters.
We have been learning about programming and how computers follow instructions. These instructions are called an algorithm.
We were set the challenge of designing and making a meat free pasta salad. We evaluated existing products, designed,made and evaluated our product.
We watched a performance by Altru Drama called Road to Respect. The performance made us think about how are words and actions can hurt others. It taught us all that we should respect and be kind to each other.
We all really enjoyed Mr Crilly's Quiz at the end of half term. We were asked questions about our new knowledge and learning. We scored lots of points, but Miss Brady's class won!
We have learnt all about the 'plastic crisis' and the terrible state of our oceans. We were challenged to collect plastics and give them a second chance, by creating a piece of art. Our art work had to bring awareness to the crisis and to get people thinking about their plastic usage. Firstly, we worked in small groups to create a piece of art. Then, we selected the best bits from each piece to make our class piece. We really enjoyed creating our art work and hope it reminds people to reduce, reuse and recycle. We made sure we recycled all our spare materials.
This term we have been reading traditional tales. For the text The Enormous Turnip we talked about the emotions the characters would be experiencing during key events in the story. We then worked in groups to act out the different events and we shared and discussed how the characters might be feeling.
We started our Science work by completing a number of different immersion stations. Exploring different animals; sorting animals and even trying to copy and draw different animal skins. Our favourite part was pretending we were different animals!
For our art lesson we will be exploring weather. So far we have created a collage of a rainy day and used oil pastels to create a snowy scene. We are all really enjoying our art lessons and love sharing our work with each other.
We also took inspiration from Vincent Van Gogh and created our own sunny watcher picture. We looked at Vincent Van Gogh’s work and discussed his style.
For our first lesson the children were immersed in different weather activities. They completed the following activities: trying on a variety of clothes thinking about what weather they might need them for; sorting weathers according to seasons; identifying hot and cold countries on a world map and drawing a response to an extreme weather type. The children also shared what they already know about weather and were encouraged to think and share their wonderings.
