On Wednesday and Thursday last week, Y5 went on a river study. We learnt lots of new vocabulary such as tributary, meander, confluence , erosion, source, deposition… I wonder how many definitions the children can remember.
During this half term the Nursery children have been learning about their local area and the wider world. Can any of your superstars remember where they live? We talked about where we could go for a day trip and then looked at different countries and sang the continent song. It’s very catchy!
We have tasted Indian food, different fruits and even made our own pizza!
There has been so much more but hope you enjoy this quick look at some of our activities.
These are our (mostly) completed scultpures made using modrock, art straws, scrap paper, corks and ping pong balls. Some children have made a sculpture to commemorate our Sports Week and some made World Cup trophys. The children thought carefully about how to make their sculptures special, including a football to show that 2018 was the year of the World Cup and including wedding archways to show that it was the year of a royal wedding! We hope you like our work!
We have been thinking about the World Cup and our Sports Week! We decided that our Sports Week was so fantastic that it needed a sculpture to commemorate the event! We designed our sculptures ourselves, chose our own materials and worked completely independently to create our sculpture.
