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!
The sun shone on us on Thursday as our Y4 children visited Llandudno as part of their geography topic. Watch the slideshow below to see just how much fun the children had beside the seaside!
Today the nursery children have been thinking about traveling by train. We have talked about how we travel to different holiday destinations and which is the best form of transport to get there. We have used pens to draw a track and then printed a train using shapes on the tracks. Choo Choo !
What a very busy start to our final half term! It was lovely to see so many happy smiling faces all refreshed after the half term break and ready to learn lots of new and exciting things.
On Monday we shared ‘The Rainbow fish’ a story about a fish who didn’t like to share his shiny scales, afterwards the children painted their hands to create their own rainbow fish.
Our new role play area has been very popular, with everyone acting out being at the seaside not forgetting to apply sun cream before taking a dip in the paddling pool.
Today the children have made an Octopus, they had to carefully count out eight tentacles to attach to the body, super counting by everyone, well done!
There has been many more activities, please take a look at the photos by clicking on the Sandford Hill icons and as always we would love to read your comments.
