Class Photographs 2022-2023
We have been learning about capacity in our Maths lessons. We have been discussing the amounts full, empty, half full, nearly full, and nearly empty. We then made the amounts practically using different containers. Some of us looked at how we measure the volume of the water in millilitres or in litres and showed this by making the different amounts.
We have been discussing the world around us, identifying which continent we live in and the oceans and seas that surround the United Kingdom. We then looked at each of the 5 oceans around the world and each of the 7 continents. We looked at different maps and had a go at labelling our own. We also sand songs to learn the names of each continent and ocean and put them in order from the largest to the smallest.
We have loved learning about all the different types of fruit, what they feel like, what they smell like and best of all what they taste like! We really enjoyed exploring how Handa was able to balance the basket of fruit on her head, so we had a go at balancing a heavy book on ours, phew, it was hard work trying to keep it balanced and walk at the same time!
We are learning about houses and homes this term. We looked at what houses were like in the past during Victorian times and then discussed what houses are like now. We had a go at making our very own houses using box modelling materials.
Our Commando Joe mission was to work as a team to repair the damaged gown ready for the King’s coronation. We repaired it together and then tested it out to make sure it held together.
Our Commando Joe mission was ‘Teamwork’ to create a royal carriage for the coronation of the king.
Our Commando Joe mission was to create a hat for the King’s guards. We worked together as a team.
In our English lessons we have been reading the story ‘The Queen’s Hat’. We pretended to be the Queen at Buckingham Palace and then we experimented to see whether we could make our hats blow off in the wind!
The Train Ride
In English we have been reading ‘The Train Ride’ by June Crebbin. We have loved exploring trains both past and present and carrying out the roles of all the different passengers, the conductor and the driver of the train. We have described all the things that we might see on the journey and how the characters might feel. We really enjoyed our experience days, tasting chocolate and strawberries, describing their different tastes and textures and finally our visit to the seaside, paddling in the water, making sandcastles, eating pretend fish and chips and real icecream!
We looked at the skittle experiment to see how the colour transfers from each skittle when water is added. We tried both hot water and cold water and noticed that the colour ran slower in the cold water than when in the hot water. We also learnt that the colours do not mix because of the amount of concentrated sugar moving towards the middle where there is no sugar.
