Pine class are working in teams to try and find the total of 21. This requires collaboration in order to achieve the target. Bravo Pine! 😄
Rowan class were split into teams either for giving homework or against giving homework. Each team wrote their persuasive arguments to try and plead their cases. If an opinion or argument was shared the other team tried to counter act their reasoning. Wonderful debating! I can see some future solicitors or public speakers in our midst.😄
Apple Nursery have been learning about how people celebrate Chinese New Year. We enjoyed exploring our Chinese themed tray and dancing to Chinese music as well as watching ‘Let’s Celebrate’ on CBeebies to learn more about Chinese New Year.
In year 3 we have been completing a science experiment to observe how fertiliser affects how well plants grow. This week we have observed how the cress seeds have begun to grow! We’re excited to see what happens next.
Last week we learnt how ice melts with warmth and we rescued the dinosaurs by melting the ice with our hands. It was freezing cold. Today, we wanted to rescue the dinosaurs as quickly as possible so we follows Mercedes idea and smashed the ice! We found out that the ice broke into chunks and we kept breaking it until the ice had disappeared! It didn’t take long. Look at the fun we had breaking it!
During our PE lesson today, Beech Class enjoyed exploring a range of apparatus. In between each piece of equipment the children had to find different ways to travel around the hall. As we have been learning lots about dinosaurs, most of the children chose to travel like a dinosaur, using gross motor movements.
We had fun learning the stippling technique using stencils. Many Street Artists use stencils. Have you seen any.
