This morning we have enjoyed an assembly from Revd. Waddell. Mr Gray from Three Rivers Refugee Centre also came to personally thank the children for the donations made. May we take this opportunity to thank you all for the generous donations made to such a worthy and local charity.
We had a fun afternoon learning how to strengthen paper. We found that layering and folding made it stronger.
Holly’s was so strong that she could stand on it for a few seconds!
We have been learning how to write Kennings.
Our Kennings are poems about us.
In History, we have been thinking about when the Stone Age happened and where it would lie on a timeline. We spaced ourselves out on the field to help us understand how long ago it was. If you look closely, you can just about see Fletcher at the end of the field.
The children celebrated their effort and achievement on Thursday morning.
This week Larch have painted their volcanoes, ready to cause one to erupt next week. We looked at pictures of volcanoes first to ensure we chose appropriate colours then worked in our groups to paint over the paper mache. What fantastic results!
In Larch class, we have had a fantastic learning opportunity making volcanoes using plastic bottles and cardboard boxes. We have worked in groups, using our teamwork skills to firstly, make a volcano shape using scrunched up newspaper and masking tape. Next, we used paper mache and thin strips of newspaper to stick onto our volcano shape. We are now letting it dry in order to paint it the correct colours (we will share our finished volcanoes next week!)
