Welcome to Beavers Class 

We had a very special visitor this afternoon! It was Father Christmas! We are all the nice list and he brought us all a lovely present.

We made our own Snowman planks to display in our homes over Christmas.

Making our own rain shakers with Mrs Belshaw.

We've been learning how to partition numbers and using our knowledge of the value of each digit, to help us write numbers as we hear them.

A Cock-a-Doodle Christmas! We really enjoyed learning and performing our Christmas show and can't wait for you to see the DVD.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We have decorated our own baubles and placed them on the big Christmas tree!

We have been celebrating St Andrew's day. We designed our own traditional Scottish kilts and then learnt about the story of the Loch Ness Monster. We then made our own Loch Ness Monsters using play dough and made them look like they were coming out of the water.

We've made our own salt dough Christmas decorations!

During anti-bullying week, we made friendship bracelets/keyrings for our friends and delivered them with a lovely message!

Time for some water play!

For Children In Need day we made our own Pudsey hats and then made some yellow Pudsey playdough!

I'm doing some fantastic bench sitting!

I'm exploring different snowy textures with my hands and feet!

On Remembrance Day we used bottles to create our own poppy paintings. We learnt all about what the poppy represents and the importance of celebrating Remembrance Day.

We went on a leaf hunt to collect leaves of different shapes, sizes and colours. We then used them to make our own Autumn wreath.

We have been learning about Christianity and the importance of the Bible. We looked at a range of different Bible's and talked about why Christians have a bible. We then learnt about the 10 commandments and made our won set for class.

At the start of every R.E lesson, we have a moment of reflection where we think about how we are feeling and what we have experienced that week.

We've been making moon rocks this week. We then used vinegar and pipettes to explore how they react.

We've been learning about how the planets move and orbit one another. Here we are acting out the way the moon, earth and sun move and orbit.

Look at my mark making! I'm making a map to the moon!

In Science we have been looking at the different moon phases. We learnt about total eclipses, full moons and crescent moons. We then used Oreos and carved the different moon phases into the cream.

Look at that rocket go!

The look of pure excitement when your rocket launches!

Miss Evans showed us a great way to create a moving rocket using the equipment given to us for our experiment. We then tested our rockets out outside and experiments with ways to make it move faster.

In DT we have been looking at rockets and exploring different ways we could make our own rockets that can fly. This week we were given the task of designing a flying rocket using string, a straw, some tape and a balloon. We split into groups and had to come up with our own ideas. We had some fantastic team work going on and everybody had an input into each groups final design.

We worked as a team to put ourselves in height order and found out who is the tallest Beaver and who is the shortest. We found this a bit tricky but persevered really well and in the end we got it!

We dressed up like the Anglo Saxons!

I can make number bonds to 10!

Our new story is called the Marvellous Moon Map. In our story mouse creates a map to the moon but when he gets to the water he has to think of a creative way to travel across. He decides to turn his map into a paper boat and sails to the moon. We decided to create our own paper boats by following instructions and then tested them in the water tray.

We have been exploring how to mark make using dance. We learnt a dance routine and focussed on actions with our arms, wrists and fingers. We then placed crayons in each of our hands, sat in front of a piece of paper and performed the routine and to see what we could create. We created some fantastic volcanoes!

We've been learning about doubling numbers in Beaver's Class this week. We began by exploring what doubling means and the children were able to say that doubling meant two groups of the same amount or 2 identical objects. We then went on a hunt around the classroom to see if we could find any identical objects.

We've designed and created our own Alien's and have used them to act out parts of our story - Alien's Love Underpants!

We are learning about Earth and Space in Science. We decided to go outside, look up to the sky and see if we could spot any planets. We asked some really good questions and although we couldn't see any planets other than the sun, we did spot some clouds and an aeroplane.

We've been measuring using non-standard equipment. We have used cubes and paper clips and compared the length of alien footprints. We then moved on to using a ruler and explored measuring in centimetres.

Alien's Love Underpants.....they also like to wear them on their heads and take part in upside down underpants races. We tried to act like the Alien's and don't we look funny!

We have both been exploring props from our sensory story with our hands and feet. Our favourite object was the corn on the cob, it feels all bumpy and it's great to roll.

This week we thought it was important to remind ourselves of the importance of washing our hands. We carried out an experiment to see how well soap works, keeping germs away. We filled a bowl with water and sprinkled some black pepper on top, we then dipped our fingers in soap and the dipped our fingers in the bowl and watched as all the germs (black pepper) quickly moved away.

Our History topic this term is the Anglo Saxons, however Miss Evans decided to keep this a secret at first, and sent us into the woodland area with our ipads to find clues that had been planted all around. Once we had found them all we then discussed what our topic might be and are all very excited to learn lots about Anglican life.

We have our first 11th birthday of the year! We all enjoyed helping this Birthday Beaver celebrate his big day!

I'm happiest when i'm painting! Today I mixed shaving foam and paint with my hands and moved it all around to make my own piece of art.
