Take One Picture Launch

posted 5 May 2017, 09:32 by Laura Mathews   [ updated 7 May 2017, 10:04 ]

This week, we had our first look at the painting for our 'Take One Picture' project which will begin in the summer. Miss Mathews was very sneaky and cut the picture into lots of small pieces. First, we were only able to take one piece of the picture. We recorded what we could see using our developing spelling skills. Next, we had to put the picture back together as a group. This was quite tricky! 
             

Finally, we got to explore the whole picture and we discussed with Miss Mathews what we would like to create based on the painting.

After watching videos of Rio 2016 and the throwing events, we were inspired to improve our throwing skills. We developed our technique and accuracy when throwing by playing a number of games. 
Next week- Jumping! 

            

We're going on a bug hunt!

posted 21 Apr 2017, 08:01 by Laura Mathews   [ updated 21 Apr 2017, 08:04 ]

Yesterday, we set out on a bug hunt to discover which creatures had made their homes in the school grounds. We discussed why creatures had chosen certain habitats and how they may have adapted to it. We also used our maths skills to create a tally chart for the creatures we found. We had to make sure we recorded carefully and used the bug pots to examine what we had found.

We spent the afternoon gardening with our grandparents. First, we got the weeds out of the planters and then we planted the seeds. We have planted radish, lettuce and spinach seeds and we will be looking after them next term.

Yesterday, we watched a puppet show called Thumbelina. We enjoyed watching the lady use different types of puppets to tell the story. At the end, she showed us how the puppets move and what they are called. Thank you to the PFA for this lovely end of term treat!

Shortbread

On Thursday, we made shortbread. We had to weigh all of our own ingredients and follow the recipe. Miss Mathews only needed to help us a little bit and she was very impressed with our cooking skills.
