Welcome to Classes 3 and 4
Year 1 – Computing
This week we used Bee Bots and learnt the word algorithm. We created our own algorithms to make Bee Bot travel around the Toy shop Mat. We were challenged to get Bee Bot to reach the different toys in the toy shop.
We also got Bee Bot to move around different places on the iPads.
Year 1 have been very busy!
Year 1 designed their own pretend medicines after reading the book Georges Marvellous Medicine. They were learning about volume and capacity and measured their chosen ingredients using jugs, pipettes and syringes.
Date and Banana Flapjacks
Year 1 have enjoyed cooking this week, whilst learning about mass and weight. They weighed and measured their ingredients in groups and particularly enjoyed eating their healthy flapjacks during our picnic and story.
Year 1 have been busy creating fantastic art!
RE – We have been learning about the Christian creation story in RE and have done lovely collages of our beautiful Earth and animals.
Owls – In English we have been reading the story The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark and have used leaves and printing to create our own owls.
Science – We have been collecting leaves and learning about Autumn and seasonal changes.
We have been making Diva lamps and learning about Diwalhi.
Maths – we have been having fun making shape characters.
We have been creating our own firework displays using pastels – Boom! Crash! Whizz!
Science - Senses
We have been learning about our senses. We learned about taste and smell and found out that our tongue can taste different things. We learned about how food can be bitter, sour, sweet and salty and tested this by tasting lemons, pineapple, dark chocolate and salty crisps.
Class 3 'Penguins' Praise Postcard
We have all made Penguins to decorate our card which was inspired by our whole school metaphor of
'Birds reaching great heights.' Our penguins are diving down deep into their learning.
Class 4 'Puffins' Praise Postcard
We have all made Puffins to decorate our card which was inspired by our whole school metaphor of
'Birds reaching great heights.'
For our 'Whole School' entrance hall display we wrote poems inspired by the book 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llenas. We united as a whole school to explore our emotions. Can you spot how we have captured each feeling from the story with our use of colour and powerful descriptive language?
Here are our Class Charters for 2020-2021.
Our Learning Metaphor this year is birds.
