Autumn Walk - a leaf hunt

Dragon visit A dragon visited our school! The dragon left us clues to find, we were led to a dragons nest where there were dragon eggs and slime. We helped the dragon eggs to hatch then we made dragons out of clay.

Taste experiment We looked at our five senses (taste, touch, smell, hearing and sight). We put our sense of taste to the test and tasted different foods to see if we liked them or not. Somethings we really liked and others were sour. We then sorted them into tastes I like and tastes I didn’t like.

Material hunt We have been on a material hunt around our classroom. We have been looking for metal, plastic, glass, wood, paper and fabric. We found lots of objects in our classroom were made of more than one material.

Remembrance Day We celebrated remembrance day by painting pictures of red and purple poppies, to remember those who had fought in the war.

Gymnastics In PE we have been learning some gymnastics. We have started off by learning some gymnastic shapes (star, straight, pike, tuck and straddle), we have then had a go at putting those shapes into a sequence with a partner.

Making Jam sandwiches by following instructions We have been learning about following instructions in ICT and English. To make our jam sandwiches we had to follow some instructions.

DT- Bridge Building Our topic this term is Brilliant Brunel! We have been learning about all of the amazing things that Isambard Kingdom Brunel built and we have especially enjoyed looking at different types of bridges. As part of our DT work, we have designed and built our own bridges. We have used lots of different materials: paper, card, wooden blocks, base ten and lego. We really enjoyed building our own bridges.
