Science - creating a viking ship to hold the most Vikings!
Advent preparations in November 2017
Christmas Art 2017 - Origami
We experimented with Origami and made some origami foxes as we had been reading all about Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Halloween Drama fun and Art too!
The children studied Ancient Greek culture and mythology in November. They really loved learning about Gods and legends and created some amazing groupwork projects! As part of our activities we also engaged in some Greek drama!
Science - Let there be light!
In Term One we investigated how light travels. We found that it travels in straight lines thus causing shadows when something is in it's way! We experimented with materials to determine transparency, finding some objects to be opaque and some were a mix of the two called translucent. Below are photos of the Artwork that came from this - stained glass witchy windows!
Linking in with our theme of Light we created mindfulness jars with our favourite little toy, glitter, water, glycerine and some glue! During the day our jars helped us take mindful quiet time.
The Stone Age
In September we created beautiful artwork inspired by our history studies.
With our theme of healthy eating we examined what we should eat and our portions as well aa categorising ourfood and expanding our vocabulary. We even printed using some of the fruit we sampled!
We are currently reading Stig of the Dump by Clive King, but Terms One and Two were all about Roald Dahl. We loved James and the Giant Peach, The Twits, The Giraffe the Pelly and Me and Matilda. Here is some of the artwork that came from all our reading!
Biodiversity- Autumn Walk
Mrs. Mary O'Malley led a lovely Autumn tree hunt. We were amazed by all the species in our school! Oak, Ash, Rowan, Maple, Horse-Chestnut to name but a few.
Biodiversity - Guest Speaker - Benny!
A lovely man called Benny spoke to us about Bees and their importance for biodiversity to thrive. We sampled some heather honey - harvested every seven years alone! We also saw where they lived and what makes them easier to handle. We were buzzing!!
