This week we have been doing five to thrive in support of Children in Need
We enjoyed taking part in the Get Active activities with Joe Wickes.
We listened to different video clips that explored Connect and Be Curious throughout the week and discussed the ideas they raised.
We enjoyed the colour my feelings mindfulness activity.
Juniper class learnt about why people wear poppies today.
We created our own poppy wreaths.
In English we have started to explore the text "Mouse, Bird, Snake, Wolf" by David Almond. In the story the Gods created a world that they were really pleased with.
We thought about the conversations they might have with each other. Here are our ideas:
Following watching The big anti bullying assembly, we explored who we could ask for help from. As a class we came up with lots of ideas. Everyone then identified their own top five people they could turn to if they need help or advice.
We enjoyed reciting and performing a variety of spooky poems.
The children enjoyed celebrating this special event. They made bunting to decorate the front of the school, watched a special video message from Mr. Lingard, and enjoyed a Birthday cake. It was great to see the school flag flying. They were all so excited to receive their 50p coins and commemorative mugs! Some children used their mugs straight away where as many others have put them in a special place to keep them safe. Most children have saved their 50ps.
We enjoyed looking at how iron filings are attracted to the magnet. The magnetic force pulls them towards the magnet.
We enjoyed investigating which objects are attracted to the magnets in our classroom.
Can you spot our special Macmillan badges we designed?
We signed a song for you to enjoy too!
Our Head Boy and Head Girl delivered our virtual assembly on Friday for Macmillan Coffee morning. They shared with the whole school how Macmillan came about and how the donations received from families help those that are currently suffering with cancer- Well done for delivering a fantastic 'virtual' assembly!
We have learnt that the Ancinet Egyptians made their own version of paper using pressed reeds from the side of the River Nile. We have been creating our own mock Paprus. We stained our paper with cold tea to get the right colour. We cut some of our dried stained paper into strips and pasted them on another piece. When they are dry we will create a piece of ancient Egyptian art.
We travelled back in time to the Ancient Egyptian Era. There we explored ancient Egyptian writing and numbers. We wrote our names using hieroglyphs and enjoyed exploring the number system.
We explored part of the British Museum website to see and learn about the Rosetta stone. We also looked at some examples of Papyrus paper showing examples of hieroglyphics and paintings of gods and goddesses, objects and humans. We explored the style of painting and then had a go at sketching a range of Gods and Goddesses. We will be creating our own piece of papyrus art using hieroglyphs and drawings of our chosen God or Goddess.
In maths we are exploring place value up to one thousand using a range of concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to ensure our understanding becomes embedded.
