We have had such fun celebrating World Book Day - Herons class looked AMAZING in their costumes! We read Goldilocks and the 3 Bears then carried out investigations into which material made the comfiest bed and which ingredients made the tastiest porridge.
We loved our trip to Samlesbury Hall to learn more about the Tudors. It was a great way to end our topic and we really enjoyed looking at a typical Tudor building and meeting the Lady of the hall, who told us all about Tudor life.
In English, we have been learning how to read and write instructions. We followed instructions carefully to make jam sandwiches, which we shared with our partner and ate at snack time!
Herons class loves being hands on and that was definitely the case when we were learning about reversible and irreversible changes in Science. We investigated a range of household items to see which ones fell into each category.
We had lots of fun starting our new topic of 'Kings and Queens'. We enjoyed dressing up, learning about the different styles of clothing worn in Tudor times and exploring some of the different fabrics.
In Maths, we have been learning about the value of money. We have sorted coins, ordered them by value and we even took a trip to the supermarket to buy our snack for the week. This gave us a great real-life opportunity to add amounts and work out how much change we might get.
We really enjoyed learning about the significance of each part of our Christingle oranges whilst we put them together. They looked beautiful when they were lit.
Today we have sailed the English Channel to France. We went by ferry and could hear the seagulls and the waves passing us by. We used the VR headsets for a fully immersive experience. We have also made our own Eiffel towers.
In Maths we have been thinking about reasoning and logic. Today, we took 3 items from a large selection and told our classmates the reason why we had chosen them and how the items were linked or could group together. Some of us chose to sort by colour, some chose type and some of us had much different reasoning, such as animals that would eat carrots!
We love to share and play with our friends - we had missed each other over the summer holidays!
In Music, we used the sound beam to develop our own Space themed music. We used the pedals to play the videos and images on the board and used our bodies to activate the motion sensors to create different sounds.
How clever we are! Some of us have earned our Bikeability badges and certificates this half term. Although it was a very wet day, everyone did so well.
Our topic this half term has been 'Earth and Space'. We tried some astronaut food which had been freeze dried to remove any liquid from it. Our least favourite was the tangy raspberry. Our class favourite was definitely the ice-cream sandwich!
