Art Week

Art week starts with a Wizz Pop Bang ! This years art week is in full swing . After an exciting assembly with Fun Science experiments we were all raring to get going. This morning Sycamore Class worked on their recycling project with the Mum’s team and we made some brilliant Jellyfish from bottle bottoms. Then this afternoon we became scientists ourselves and made clay volcanoes that erupted with vinegar and bicarbonate of soda !

We can’t wait to show you all our work on Friday in the showing assembly.

Oi Frog !

We have started a new topic about humans and other animals. We are grouping and classifying animals. We have loved looking at Oi Frog and discussing the rhymes . We had great fun making frogs to sit on logs !

Keeping clean and sunshine fun

Today we have continued our Disgusting Sandwich topic and thought about keeping clean and hygienic. We made sure that we were clean and then thought about how to make sure our food preparation area was clean too.

This afternoon we took advantage of the beautiful weather and did some orienteering and problem solving .

 

Disgusting Sandwich

We have begun our work on the Disgusting Sandwich. Today we learnt instructions about how to make a sandwich. We used Talk for Writing to help us remember the step. We will practise this and seesaw some of our performances.

Meanwhile we have been very busy practising for our class assembly which is tomorrow afternoon at 2.15pm.

The children are excited to be watching our pet bluetit which has now laid 8eggs. You can watch the progress of this live via the bird bird web cam , follow the link to this through the school website.

Book week -twisted tales

This year we are looking at alternative versions of traditional stories. Sycamore Class are looking at Cinderella and a version called Prince Cinders.

Today we have compared this to the original story and then made stick puppets of some of the characters to create own own alternative story to tell our friends.

We also had a great time sharing our favourite stories with Elm Class.

 

 

Orienteering

What a great start to term 4 ,  a morning out in the fresh air ! The children behaved brilliantly and had a fantastic time this morning at Avon Valley College completing a series of orienteering challenges. They worked with other members of Key Stage 1 on problem solving and map reading.

I was very proud of them and they all tried very hard. Special mention to Gilbert who won the Woodborough team award with his partner Finley from Year 2.

 

Safer Internet day

Today is Safer Internet day. We began with an assembly where we were told about this years moto- Create, Connect and share respect.  We also met the 3 monsters who told us a story about being careful to make kind comments on line.

In class we discussed the sorts of things we like to do on the internet and how to keep safe. We thought about our ‘digital footprint’ and how to be careful about the things we share.

 

Icy

We had great time this afternoon investigating ice melt ! The children had great observations and we trying hard to be little scientists. Well done Sycamore . There were some crazy creatures to discover.

 

Emperor’s new clothes

 


We are really enjoying our topic and have been thinking about writing a new story. We have explored the story and characters using storytelling walks, play dough and dressing up. Today we used drama to think about the next chapter of the story about  a greedy queen who demands to have the biggest brightest ruby in the world !

The children thought it was very funny when Mrs Barratt , Mrs Crichard and Mrs Mc Cormick acted the parts of a greedy queen and two tricksters. Can you guess who was who ?
