Sharing our riddles with Butterfly Class

Fleet Pond

On 4th July 2018, we visited Fleet Pond to look at human and physical features. We completed an ‘eye spy’ and sketched the human and physical features we saw. After we sat in silence and made a sound mat to record the sounds we could hear.

 

Sports Day

We all enjoyed our sports morning today and were team players.  We supported one another and worked collaboratively to try and win each race.  Thank you to all our adults for joining us and staying for the picnic afterwards.

The children pretended to be annoyed, angry and outraged equipment in the classroom and they wrote letters in character complaining!

more letters of complaint!!

Riot in the Classroom!!

This morning, the classroom equipment had a riot and went on strike! They left lots of notes explaining why they were so unhappy!  The Day the Crayon's Quit has now turned into The Day all the Resources Quit! Oh no! 

Snow Writing

Pirate Day

Today, we immersed ourselves in the life of a pirate.  We shared our pirate writing with Fox Class and went on a treasure hunt to find the golden treasure.  We played lots of pirate games and had a super day. 

Making a healthy Cous Cous Salad for Pirate Pete

Sea Shanties

As a group, we wrote our own versesw for the sea shanty “What shall we do with a drunken sailor?” or "The Pirate Song." 

 

We then performed the sea shanty to the class.

 

We hope you like them! smiley

Pirates

As part of our Literacy about pirates, we went outside to experience different aspects of life at sea. We listened to the sound of the sea in shells, scrubbed the decks and we climbed the rigging. We also felt and tasted salty water.

We then generated a mind map of describing words to help with our writing to describe a day in the life of a pirate.

Pirates

On Tuesday, we received a message in a bottle from Pirate Pete.  Alongside this was a treasure chest, an eye patch, a hat and a hook.  We are looking forward to helping Pirate Pete this term smiley

Twisted Tales

Here are a few of our twisted tales.  We hope you like them smiley

Sewing

It has been an exciting week in Owl class as we have been writing our twisted tales and making hand puppets to go with them.  We tried out different ways to join 2 pieces of felt so we could find the best way.  Most of us thought that sewing them was the best as it looks neat, feels soft and is very strong.  Do you like our puppets?

Dragon Delivery! 

We were told that Mrs Clark had ordered something for Owl Class to help us with our new topic, but when we saw the box we noticed that it was empty and it looked like something had escaped! We thought that it must be a dragon! We went on a dragon hunt around school and finally found a red, cute, baby dragon reading a book in our library! 

Meet Ruby! 

We suggested names for the dragon and voted as a class to choose our favourite - the most popular name was Ruby.  In our English lesson we wrote questions to ask Ruby, which we punctuated with question marks.  We then wrote her answers as statements, punctuated with full stops.  

Also in English, we have written instructions for how to look after a pet dragon! 

In out Science learning we have made containers for Ruby to live in.  We were challenged to think about the best materials to make different parts of the containers.  We had to think about somewhere for her to sleep, bath, eat and stay dry.  We selected materials and gave reasons for our choices.  Have a look at the photos below to see some of our learning.  

Arts Week (and Perseverance!)

This week is Arts Week at school, where we will be creating some artwork linking to Fireworks Night and Remembrance Day.  We started the week by making clay poppies. Before we started, Mrs Reid said that when she was making her poppy she had to really persevere!  We spoke about what this meant, as it is one of our targets on our 'Climbing a Tree to a Better Me' and we talked about why it is such an important skill in all our areas of learning.  When making our poppies we persevered and worked hard to keep smoothing over the clay.  We were really proud of our efforts and now we are just looking forward to the clay poppies drying so that we can paint and glaze them!

Ukulele performance

Thank you to those of you who came to watch our performance, having an audience to share our learning with really helps us to work towards a purposeful and meaningful end outcome.  Mr Higgins and all the adults at school were very proud, as I am sure you were too.

As part of our Science Longitudinal Study we have been pond dipping.  We are comparing the creatures and plants in natural Heathland pond with the man built pond in the woods.
