Photos of our learning

We had fun doing some Encanto Yoga today. We had to retell the story whilst incorporating different yoga poses.

We drew some portraits of our friends today. We had to try and make the faces symmetrical and use our chalk skills to add colour to our portraits.

In Forest School this week, we made some hibernation holes for bugs. We thought about what the insects might like with the weather turning cold and wet, then made them little hidey holes out of materials we could find around us. Lots of us even had bugs moving in before we had finished!

We made the most of the dry weather and headed out onto the field for PE. We practiced different ways of travelling whilst carrying a beanbag.

Thank you to all of those who turned up to our smoothie making family learning afternoon. We had great fun tasting, designing and making our own smoothies!

Fun at Forest School!

We were very lucky to have a visit from Bryony, an art historian who works with Hauser and Wirth. She came to talk to us abut famous paintings and artists. She encouraged us to become art detectives and study the paintings. We had a go at drawing sections of the paintings ourselves.

We have been reading the story of Traction Man. The children have created their own actions to accompany the story.

Today we were taking about instructions and what we need instructions for. The children had to work with a partner to build a Lego model, they then had to come up with some instructions that would enable their partner to build the same Lego model. Lots of teamwork needed!

Our first swim of the new term! It was definitely the weather for it!

The children had to take part in a Maths investigation. The aim of this challenge was to completely fill the grid with counters. They needed 25 counters or buttons, a 1-6 dice, pencil and paper. The children had to throw the dice and place that number of counters anywhere on the grid. Then they had to repeat this over and over again. Each time they threw the dice, they had to make a record. They then had to continue until they had completely filled the grid. Some of the children had to play a slightly modified version in which they could only place the number of counters in the same row.
