Meet the Teacher
Outdoor Learning in Forest School
We have enjoyed our outdoor learning in the heathland this term. We had fun exploring the area, bird watching, making dens, finding bugs in the hotel, playing with conkers and climbing trees.
Making our Moving Vehicles
We have been learning how to join and make moving mechanisms. We all used an axle and wheels on our safari vehicle. We think they look great!
Fun with scales!
We have been learning how to weigh items using the non-standard measure of cubes. We had lots of fun ordering items from heaviest to lightest.
Visit from Wild Science
We really enjoyed meeting the animals from Wild Science. We met Sir Pent the Corn Snake, Christina the Guinea Pig, Milly the Millipede, Flick the Leopard Gecko and Barbara the Tree Frog. We were able to stroke some of them and to hold others. We found out lots of interesting facts about these animals, about where they are from, what they eat and their special features.
Rhyming Scavenger Hunt
We enjoyed a scavenger hunt around the woods on World Book Day. We found words and decided which words they rhymed with. Is what a lot of fun and tricky to find them all.
We worked with a partner to write sentences about a planet in Space. We worked together to write a paragraph, changing the pronoun and using conjunctions.
We had a fantastic time learning skills in skipping. We skipped forwards, backwards, hopping, fast and slow. We also used a long rope to jump over using 2 feet.
As part of our learning about space, we visited the Science Centre in Winchester. We made and tested rockets, zoomed into Space inside the Planetarium and explored the Space area. We had a wonderful time.
As part of our learning about changes over time, the children have been looking at toys they play with and comparing them with toys from the past.
We enjoyed our first session at Forest School. We built dens, looked for birds and mushrooms, played 3 in a row, made concoctions in the mud kitchen and completed the obstacle course.
As part of our learning about Place Value, we have been independently exploring numbers and different ways to represent them. Here are some of the exciting activities we have been exploring.
As part of our art we have been learning how to use oil and chalk pastels. We have been blending different colours together and using them to copy pictures of fruit and vegetables by famous artists.
