Apple Nursery are enjoying learning about plants and what helps plants grow as part of our ‘Let it Grow’ topic. A big thank you to ‘The Plant Stop’ on Hempstead Road who kindly donated some bedding plants for us to replant in pots for the Nursery garden! We have been learning to name the roots, stem, leaves and flowers. We will be making sure we water them so more flowers can grow!
The Larch class artists have been busy at work this week. They have combined their historical knowledge of the Romans, their artistic understanding of Roman mosaics and their creativity to design some fabulous mosaic patterns!
We are looking at animal prints that are made in the sand, mud, snow or other soft ground. We have investigated animal prints in paint, using kiddle and matching the animals to the print. We had great fun researching !
In English this week, Larch class have been learning about newspaper reports. We explored the school grounds after hearing of an unusual alien sighting above the school and looked for evidence. We then practised our use of dramatic language in preparation of writing our own newspaper reports next week.
In our history lesson today, we were visited by Emperor Claudius – a real life a Roman Emperor! He could not decide whether he should invade Britain for a third time, after Caesar had already failed twice before him. We provided him with reasons for and against the invasion to help him make a decision. After debating the points that we had put forward, Claudius did decide to invade and he was successful.
We have had lots of fun this week with our Easter activities including egg hunts around the Nursery garden and matching the numbers, a film with treats provided by Friends of Tanners Wood, making Easter cards and chick nests as well as learning about the Easter story and making an Easter garden. We hope you all have a wonderful Easter break!
