Year 2 have really enjoyed reading The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and learning about the seaside so we decided to make our own habitat boxes. They include real sand and if you look closely you will spot a 3D printed starfish. Children worked excellently as a group and produced fantastic work. Well done Year 2!
As always thank you those children who are reading 4 times a week or more.
Year One had a wonderful day at Longton Park, the weather was great and we even had a picnic. There were lots of historical features to see, signs of spring spotting and squirrels to find.
Year 4 walked around the local area to learn about local geography, focusing on types of buildings. These included detached houses, semi detached houses, bungalows and shops.
Year One have today continued their tour of continents around the world. This week we’re in Asia!
Our parents/careers workshop is tomorrow at 2.30pm where our Asia linked crafts continue, please come and join us.
Year One have been learning all about the United Kingdom, the countries and their capital cities. They have also been learning all about their characteristics. Have a look at our blog to find out more!
On Tuesday, we had a lovely trip to Tesco where we learned about all of the different types of food and how they are made. We looked at the ingredients needed to make bread, the different colours of fruit and vegetables and the different kinds of fish available. We enjoyed feeling the freezing temperatures of the freezer and the chilled temperature of the fridge.
This half term, we are creating our very own PowerPoint presentation in Computing! As we are learning all about the North and South Pole, we have decided to make our presentation about penguins! We needed to be super researchers to find information for our presentations and I’m sure that you will be very impressed with how many interesting things we found out about these peculiar birds!
As it is soon holiday season, Year 3 have been learning about countries, cities, weather and things to do in the Mediterranean. Fancy a holiday?
What a wonderful day Year 5 have had on the river study (despite the rain)! We’ve learnt lots and had lots of fun too. Well done everyone and apologies to parents for all those soggy clothes that need washing – I’d check the pockets if I were you!
On Thursday 6th July, Year 4 visited the seaside town of Llandudno!
In support of our Geography and Art topics, the children had a fantastic time exploring the sea front, pier, and both sand and shingle beaches. We sketched some of the fantastic views for our Coastal Landscapes topic, discussed similarities and differences between Llandudno and Longton and enjoyed a chance to shop on the pier and play on the beach.
The children were brilliantly behaved throughout the day, and the weather was brilliant for us all day. It was definitely a highlight of the year, and a great reward for all of the hard work that the children have put in this year.
Below is a video showing what we got up to. We hope that you enjoy it!
