Our trip to the Science Museum

'Excited' was definitely the emotion of the day, for LKS2 on our trip up to the London Science Museum. The children had the opportunity to walk around the museum with their adult and experience the many science exhibits. 

The children had a fabulous time at the organised interactive workshop 'Feel the Force'. They thoroughly enjoyed  the activities, which reinforced their learning on forces.

Spring Term 2

Topic-Gods and Mortals

Part of our learning this term includes Greek history and Greek myths. We are using a variety of books about Greek myths and legends and the children are currently becoming quite engrossed in our Reciprocal Reading book, 'Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief' by Jack Riordan, which is in-keeping with our current topic.

Enabling Enterprise Day

 

The children had a special challenge. They were to work as a team to create the perfect vehicle for the future. One which could travel through some difficult areas.

They shared their ideas, drew up their plans and made a protocol of their perfect form of transport.

World Book Day

 

This year, in Mr Ferguson's special World Book Day assembly, he talked about a picture book, called Journey. He talked about how the children could use their imaginations by 'stepping through a doorway' 

(just like the character in the book), entering a world created by themselves, in their very own story.

Maths and Science Week  

 

This week we have focused our maths learning on one particular book.

Years 3 and 4 have read the story Spaghetti and Meatballs for All by Marilyn Burns and they have been busy measuring lengths and widths of corridors and classrooms, calculating the perimeters and areas of the rooms and drawing up seating plans to seat a given number of people.

This has enabled the children to investigate and use their reasoning and number skills, whilst thoroughly enjoying themselves          (working very hard without even realising it) !

1066-Autumn 2

LKS2's trip to

Rochester Castle!

Monet Class...outside the castle

                                                          1

Inside the cathedral the children learnt about Gundulph, a Norman monk who came to England after the conquest.

They discovered that Gundulph became Bishop of Rochester and built several castles, including Rochester, The Tower of London and the Priory and cathedral church of Rochester.

Fantastic Forest School

 

Monet class finally found some time to go to Forest School!

 

What happened at Forest School?

The children had a reminder of the rules-

No picking

No licking

No running

Stay within the boundary

They built dens (somewhere they might shelter should it start raining).

We warmed ourselves up with hot chocolate and we had a biscuit too!!!

Enabling Enterprise Week-

30th October-3rd November

 

Brilliant Books Project!

 

This has been an incredibly exciting week!

Monet Class have been very busy researching reading in our school.

They have discovered that most children enjoy reading rather than watching the TV or playing on their Xbox, which is very good news, indeed!! 

The children worked together in teams to think of a scheme to try to encourage more children to read.

In their groups they designed a 'welcoming', 'inviting' book corner, to lure 'would be' readers.       

Each group learned some new skills, 'The 5 S's' (Stride, Seek, Stand still, Speak and Smile) and used their skills to present their scheme and design 'creation'to the rest of the class.

Scrumdiddlyumptious-Autumn 1

 

During our first week back at school we have begun our first topic!

We have discussed our favourite food. We have asked ourselves a number of questions:

Are these foods really that good for us?

What does nutritious mean?

Are our favourite foods nutritious?

Are they part of a balanced diet?

We have designed our own posters to promote healthy eating!

 

 

How can making cakes can help you with your English ?

The children made cupcakes during our DT lesson. They talked about the method,which gave them the opportunity to practise using imperative verbs, adjectives and conjunctions. This helped them when they wrote up the recipe in their English books.
