This half term, we are learning about Henry Moore and his famous sculptures. As part of this, the children learned that a sculpture is 3D art and they had lots of fun making a roots and shoots sculpture.
Today in Year 4, the children have been learning about how sound travels to our ears. To show how this works, we made string telephones which work by the vibrations from our voices travelling down the string to a receiver at the other end. The vibrations then make their way from the cup, into the air and then into our ear, hitting the ear drum.
We found that these worked best when the string is tight and the children weren’t touching the string.
A fun and engaging way to learn about sound. Well done Year 4!
Year Two have been investigating which material is the best to make Paddington a new umbrella.
This morning, Mr Alcock’s class have done a fantastic job of creating their peach cobblers. The children showed an excellent understanding of food hygiene, knowing key why we wash hands, tie hair back, wear aprons and clean our work surfaces.
The children then showed super skill when cutting the peaches, measuring ingredients and mixing the ingredients together to make the crumble topping. Delicious!
Year Two have been sharing the story of Paddington Bear so they had lots of fun making Paddington’s favourite treat ‘marmalade sandwiches’.
Year Two have been working hard on their running stitch to create a beautiful Christmas Card for their family. The children designed their Christmas card and then set to work making their design.
Today, the children in Year 4 were immersed in the Christmas spirit as they enjoyed dancing, Christmas karaoke and party games. Afterwards, the children even had time for a refreshment break of juice, cake and biscuits.
We’re sure that they will sleep well tonight!
Here are a few pictures of the day.
Today, Year 4 had a very special visitor who came to visit them and give them a gift.
It was safe to say that the children were extremely excited and were very appreciative of their gifts.
The children were very excited when a very special visitor came to join our Christmas Party! Here are a few photos of the children receiving their gift from Father Christmas!
Year Two had lots of fun at their Christmas Party! The children danced and sang along to some of our favourite party songs.
