We went outside to observe and draw life sized trees in the playground. We used chalk and practiced using our big motor skills.
We made journey sticks and took them on a Spring walk. We collected and stuck on items from the walk to help us remember all about our journey.
In Y1, we followed instructions carefully to plant beans in a bag. We observed their growth over the next 2 weeks and what happened?
Y1's enjoying an Easter treat hunt on the last day... lots of laughter, excitement and fun had by all. Happy Easter everyone!
This week our learning has been based around the story "Hamilton's Hats" by Martine Osborne.
We had fun making our own hats to think about our own qualities much like Hamilton does in the story. We then went on a hat parade around school to show off our fantastic creations. This week we have also made hats out of a range of different objects including using tessellating shapes.
This week we have all enjoyed our return to school. It has felt so good to see our friends, play together and more importantly learn together! The teacher's have been so happy to have classrooms full of happy, smiley faces and we have really enjoyed simply being together.
Our work this week has been around the story 'the invisible string'. It has been very special to think about how we are all connected to one another and realising that no-one is ever truly alone.
To celebrate British Science Week we completed the 'Space Docking Challenge'. We had great fun working as a team to raise the ball from the ground using string and found that it was much easier when we were properly talking to each other.
In the last week of half term it was 'culture week'. This is a time when we focus all of our learning about a faith and religion. We have started to learn about Christianity and the important messages in the Bible stories. The story we read was Noah's Ark. Look at some of the wonderful learning that we did.
