With half term now upon us, we can reflect on a busy few weeks for Spain Class. Amongst all the hard work the children have been doing in Maths – learning about time – and English, writing diaries and newspaper reports – we have had lots of visitors and nice experiences. There was forest schools with Mr Rackham, and it sounds like a great time was had by all. This week we also had Bel Greenwood visit for a morning of art and literacy in the environment. An outdoor experience to generate poetry ideas, drawing and drama. They then got to create their own wild garden to take home and look after.
In Science, the children have been learning about forces and magnets. Exploring what materials are magnetic, the effects of a magnetic forces, and finally putting all that new knowledge into designing and creating their very own magnet games.
And finally, we had our skipping workshop this week where the children tested themselves against themselves to see how many skips they can do in 2 minutes. I think it’s a great way to keep active and fit and it’s great to see so many children now really developing a passion for it.
