Spring 2 - Minibeasts
Wow we have had amazing time learning all about Minibeasts! We went on a minibeast hunt and found loads in our outside area.
We have been inspired by Henri Matisse. We made replicates of his famous works and then used his technique of “Painting with Scissors” to make stunning intricate minibeasts collages. They are proudly displayed in our environment. One another media we have been using is sketching pencils and charcoal. We looked closely at flowers and then added shadows and shading. We took time to edit and then revaluate how the flowers looked while we were creating them. Miss Maccaw was so proud of our creativeness!
Spring 1 - Towers and Turrets
Sun Class have really been enjoying their space, shape and measures learning. They accurately measured several lengths using strips of paper and then compared these using rulers and meter sticks. We have been estimating and then reading the scale divisions on measure jugs to make sure the capacities were accurate. This took team work to make sure the water did not spill. Sun Class have noticed a change in temperature outside, we have used thermometers to measure the differing temperature. We are able to say what the hottest temperature is!
Autumn 2 - Life at Sea!
The second half of autumn has been super busy. THE CLASS ATTENDANCE has improved and we have managed to get the Attendance Bear three times!!! Well done for coming to school every day. Please keep this up!
We are making good choices and working together as a team to gain class stars. This has meant we have had a range of class treats including climbing frame time and parachute games. Keep making good choices Sun Class you are making your grown-ups very proud. In PHSE we have been learning how to be a good friend and why it is important to be kind and helpful to everyone.
As part of our Life at Sea topic we have learnt some physical and human features of a location. We have learnt about different explorers including Christmas Columbus and Captain Cook. Inside and outside we have learnt about how to navigate to different places including using a campus to find North, South, East and West.
Autumn 1 - Bounce
Sun Class have been learning the school rules and how to be rewarded class stars for good behaviour choices. Sun Class have already had a mini dance party and wonderful time playing parachute games. WELL DONE Sun Class you are making very good behaviour choices.
In Sun Class we read everywhere! We are developing a love of reading. We had a healthy eating reading corner where the children could learn about food and healthy choices. Many children read and followed instructions to make healthy food mobiles. At the moment we have a sporty book area where the children are investigating their favourite sports and collecting sport facts. The children have been writing book reviews to persuade their friends to read their favourite book.
In Design and technology the children have been experimenting with making moving parts. The children designed an air powered vehicle and then made it with a partner. Some of the balloons were tricky to blow up but the children kept trying!! Next week we are going to evaluate our product and say why we liked it and what we would change next time.
