Year 1 have been busy learning all about materials. Yesterday we went on a material hunt to see which materials we could find in the outside environment. We then created a tally chart to show our findings and wrote down which material we found the most of and which we found the least of. We compared our findings and found that the most common material is metal and plastic.
On Monday International Women’s Day, we learnt about female scientists such as Mary Anning and ecologist Dr Margaret Lowman.
On Tuesday we investigated Biomimicry. We looked at inventions linked to birds and flight.
Then we made helicopters to investigate how they flew, it was different from a bird as they floated down.
Then we designed and made paper planes. They flew differently too, they glided through the air.
Today EYFS and Year 1 had lots of fun in the snow. We have been busy making snowmen and an igloo!
Snowy Days at School are the best fun !
Look at all the fun we have had this week in Nursery, Reception and Year 1. The children have been investigating the rain in lots of different ways…including the best way…jumping in the puddles!
The children learning at home and at school have been exploring wintery weather and the differences between hot and cold.
At school in our outdoor area we have created different opportunities for the children to explore snow and ice.
Year 4 have found out about the Swedish Christmas festival ‘Saint Lucia’ Here they are to tell you all about it.
Please follow the link for a little Christmas Cheer, with best wishes from all in KS2. MERRY CHRISTMAS
Wishing you all a happy, healthy Christmas and a fantastic new year !
We started the day making Christmas cards based on Jen Aranyi’s art.
Our classroom has been gingerbread men, so we made lots of decorations.
Rudolph made an appearance and we ran around the playground doing our best reindeer gallops.
Christmas dinner was delicious with gingerbread men as pudding.
The afternoon was filled with whacking a piñata and pass the parcel.
We finished the day with a wonderful box of pressies to share with our family.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
We started our day with our Reindeer Run Obstacle Course.
We have had a lovely day in year 4. We have completed the reindeer run, made Christmas cards, enjoyed our Christmas dinner and watched a Christmas film and much more too!
