In our History we have been learning about the Benin Civilization. We found out about Bronze in Benin and created our own Bronze masks.
On Friday we invited parents to visist us for our Share Our Learning Morning. We loved meeting the parents and showing them some of the things we have been learning about. We talked about fossils, showed them how to make salt dough fossils and painted our dried fossils. We talked about static electricity and investigated this with balloons. We had great fun seeing what we could lift using static electricity such as feathers and tissue paper. We also talked about keeping healthy, performed our 'I love fruit' poem ( off by heart) before tasting a variety of fruits.
We've had great fun during Science week! We have been to visit pets at home, we've created salt dough fossils and we've investigated light and electricity!
This week we have really enjoyed immersing ourselves in our new topic 'Evolution and Inheritance.' We've explored dinosaur bones and created our own dinosaur bones pictures. We've also explored fossils through pushing toy dinosaurs in to play dough.
Losing yourself in a book
World Book Day 2018! In Herons class we thoroughly enjoyed taking part in World Book Day. As part of World Book Day we created a sensory story to read to another class, Hedgehogs. They came to visit us and really enjoyed listening to our story. We then visited their class and listened to their sensory story. It was great fun! Throughout the day we also created bookmarks, did lots of reading and chose our favorite part of a story.
In Herons class we love a challenge and we love the outdoors! Take a look at our outdoor Maths challenges.
In our Geography lessons we have been learning all about Alaska. We have found the United Kingdom and Alaska on a world map. This week we have been researching Alaska using the laptops. We are beginning to make power point presentations of our findings! We've also learnt how to save and retrieve our work.
We have had a great start to our new topic 'Keeping Healthy.' We've enjoyed reading and acting out our class story 'Oliver's Vegetables.' We received a letter from Oliver asking us to grow our own vegetables.After reading the letter, we wrote shopping lists of the vegetables seeds we wanted to buy and visited our local garden center to buy them. We've also investigated germs through sticking glitter to our hands and looking at where the glitter 'germs' went when we touched objects around the classroom. We have learnt about the importance of hand washing and have practiced washing our hands carefully. In DT we designed healthy pizzas. We can't wait to make them!
