We started off this half term with a fantastic castle day! We spent the morning doing lots of different castle activities. There was bread making, goblet making, acrobats, joke telling and even portrait drawing. In the afternoon we all went into the hall for a banquet!
In science we carried out an experiment to find out which material is best for knocking down a castle wall!
In maths we have been learning about properties of 2D and 3D shapes and learning how to collect data. We learnt how to make a tally!
This half term Rainbow class have been learning all about Life at Sea! We had a very interesting visit from the RNLI who taught us all about how to be safe in water.
In history we learnt about different sea explorers and put them in order on timeline from the oldest to the most recent. Some of the sea explorers we learnt about were Sir Walter Raleigh, Christopher Columbus and Dame Ellen MacArthur.
In maths we have been making different amounts of money and using it to buy objects in our Sea Shop!
Rainbow class have an exciting first half term learning all about different materials! We had a very messy engage day where we got to touch lots of different materials and describe them using adjectives.
In science we became scientists and carried out an experiment- we added different materials to water to see what happened. Some of the results really surprised us! We were very lucky to a visit from Professor Bubble works. He taught which materials are good conductors and how to change the properties of materials. He made an enormous bubble by making a thick liquid with soap and water!
In R.E. we have been learning about belonging. We learned what it means to belong to a religion or group, how it feels and how we know when someone belongs.
