Remembrance - November 2017
This week we have talked about the significance of the poppies that we wear every year. We watched the 'Poppies' video made by Cbeebies and talked about the conditions that the people in the trenches must have faced. When it was activity time Ellis, Lucas and Tom made their own memorial for Remembrance Day. It has been posted below.
Shape Week - November 2017
This week we have been learning about 2D shapes. We have been naming them and looking at their properties. We have also been finding them in our class and then looking at whether different 2D shapes are symmetrical or not. Another activity we did was to make our own symmetrical patterns.
Farm to Fork Trip to Tesco Wigan - November 2017
On 7th November we visited the Tesco Extra store in Wigan as part of their Farm to Fork project. We had a brilliant time looking around the fish counter and the bakery. We even tried a piece of ciabatta and a chocolate chip cookie! Before we left for school we made our own pasta pots which were very tasty. All of the class decided that we wanted to go back for another visit as soon as possible!
It couldn't have been made possible though without the help of the parents who helped transport the children. Many thanks again!
Sukkot - October 2017
After learning about the Jewish festival of Sukkot Lucas, Theo and Tom made their own Sukkahs in the playground. They remembered the key features that we learned about and made sure they put those in.
Diwali - October 2017
This week we have learned about Diwali and the significance of it to Hindus. We really enjoyed the story of Rama and Sita and how Rama got Sita back from Ravana with help from the Monkey King. We also made our own Diwali lamps in class.
Measurement Week - October 2017
This week we have been measuring different items in class. We have also been measuring different body parts using measuring tapes and border rolls. When we measured using the border rolls we ordered these and stuck these into our book. We noticed that our arm span was very similar to our height.
The Gingerbread Man - October 2017
During the autumn term we read the Gingerbread Man story and made our own versions up. We also had fun making our gingerbread men.
The Little Red Hen - September 2017
We have been learning about the Little Red Hen story this week. We wondered how hard it was to mill wheat into flour and so we tried it for ourselves. We found out that it was very hard and took lots of effort! We used all of our knowledge of the story and of milling to lead our worship in church at the end of September.
