Wrens and Robins have had a very creative outdoor week, making tribal shields and bow and arrows ready for battle. They were inspired by the archery session this week too with Kyle and have decided to have their sports afternoon themed around natural resources and races. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!
Larks have really impressed me this week with their designing and making skills in art. A lovely link to their topic too as they each added new features to their tribal headdress! They’ve used pattern, rubbing, cutting and colouring and also added a few real feathers in there too! They have also enjoyed their outdoor science where they had to predict whether trees on our school grounds are deciduous or evergreen having learned about their differences. There is also an additional member of Swifts too… Slippery the snail!! Well done Larks.
This week, the Swifts have been working incredibly hard on their fronted adverbials. They soon began to apply their understanding to real life context such as writing instructions and linking it to their connected curriculum topic. They created delicious hot chocolates and tasty tortillas! So far, they have liked all of the Mexican/Mayan nibbles they have tried so far.
The class have progressed with their understanding of sound, learning how it travels and how our ears work. The class got into teams and built their own ear through junk modelling. They labelled the parts of the ear and presented the sound waves travelling on sound particles into the ear. It was fantastic!
The class have been learning about statistics. The circles had a challenge to tally up all of the minibeasts they could find. There were a few screams when Mr spider appeared but we all survived!
The children also took part in Make music day. They loved dancing and singing to the songs as well as playing on all of the instruments! Another fantastic week of fun and learning… well done Swifts.
Owls we have been exploring inherited characteristics in science this week and in their art/topic they made a model of a slum like the one in their class text. They are really enjoying reading Trash and making links across the curriculum to the text. The models were amazing Owls and it is lovely to see them on display- I love how they are all different. Well done.
