We have been very busy in Year One over the last 2 weeks. We have learnt lots about the furniture designers Chippendale and Mackintosh and used their designs to make our own chairs.
Last week, we all took part in a Santa Run. We ran around the track 6 times…It was really good fun but we were a bit tired at the end!
We had our Christmas Dinner at school on Friday. We made hats for the occasion and listened to Christmas songs. The food was delicious!!!
We enjoyed recording our Christmas song for our families and we wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Check your Tapestry account of our Facebook page for the video.
Today we made mincemeat muffins! We weighed the ingredients, mixed them and poured the mixture into the cases. Once baked, we will do the best bit: eating!
Another busy few weeks in Spain class in which the children have shown brilliant stamina in the run up to the end of a very unusual term.
Maths has seen us sharing objects, grouping objects and building arrays to strengthen their understanding of our new times tables (3, 4 and 8).
In English the children have been creating their own woolly mammoth cleaning kits and selling them to the class! They are now using their kits to write an instruction text on ‘How to wash a Woolly Mammoth’.
Topic has seen them researching the Iron Age and presenting their findings using Keynote on the iPad. They have shown some great knowledge and enjoyed showing off their animation skills too.
And of course, Christmas has started to rear its head, last week in the form of a Santa Dash where they all earned their certificate for giving their all by doing 5 golden laps of our running track.
Here are our finished Anderson shelters – and one Morrison shelter!
The class all worked so hard on these – they researched the original wartime shelters, researched their own ideas about how to make them, drew detailed designs and then worked hard to create their masterpieces. We are really proud of them and think they look great!
After completing some research, Year 5 had a good idea of the types of weapons and tools Stone Age people would have used and the materials available to them. Stones and sticks were gathered from the school grounds and then the making began! Miss Wild was impressed with the focus, problem-solving skills and teamwork of all the children.
