Home Learning Week Beginning 30th March
We had an amazing time on our World Book Day. The children were inspired to write by our visiting author, Phil Earle. We did lots of reading activities and Peter won the prize for the best costume in class 4.
The children explored the snow as part of our science work all about the different seasons. They had a brilliant time!
A group of children chose to research Italian food. They made a map of Italy from pasta, created an amazing poster and went to make pizzas at Gino D'Campos!
This group of children decided to have a pop up British tea party as part of their geography final outcome. They made food from Northern Ireland and Wales and sampled a Victoria sponge and Tunnock's teacakes. They painted a map and they are all starting to locate the four countries that make up the United Kingdom.
A group of children went to visit Trinity kitchen so they could learn more about food around the world. They visited a sushi restaurant and looked at street food stalls from around the world in Trinity Kitchen. They had pizza and ribs and talked about which countries the food originated from. Last week the children looked at a world map to locate the countries and wrote about their visit. The work will be put into the form of a guide book as part of their geography final outcome.
Sarah, our Place2be school project manager, created a story for KS1, the story is called “The boy with the ocean in his tummy”, the story explored feelings and how the children could communicate those feelings to a parent/carer/teacher. Sarah incorporated: shadow puppetry, rhyme and music to tell the story of Luca, a brave young boy, who learns about his feelings and decides to open up to his Nan.
The children thought the story was amazing and they could discuss it afterwards with a very good level of understanding.
Last week a group of children went to visit Tesco so they could learn more about fish around the world. They looked at a variety of fish and asked some amazing questions. They also looked closely at the gills, fins and scales so they could learn about the different parts of the fish for our science work. When they returned to school they talked about their visit to the rest of the class.
We are doing gymnastics with our PE coach. This week we did some amazing balances.
This week we have been learning how to count in 2s, 5s and 10s. We made some amazing hats to help us.
Class 4 had a great time at Temple Newsam on Thursday! We spent the morning having a fantastic art workshop all about portraits. In the afternoon, we looked at the different animals in the farm and played in the adventure playground.
