What we've been up to...
Spring Term 2023
Mental health week
Rowling class took part in a range of different activities to promote and raise awareness for mental health. We discussed strategies which can help one another and talked about our own health. Cooper came to visit and we recognised Cooper being a great help for our mental health.
We love to dress up and have fun in Rowling class! Everyone enjoyed number day and dressed up as a rock star or a robot from our Times Table Rock Stars online platform. During the day we danced to '5,6,7,8' by Steps and took part in many different maths activities.
In our science topic this half term we have explored and investigated electricity and how it works. The children made circuits that were complete and incomplete. They worked together as a team to investigate why their circuit would not work and what components they needed to make different circuits. We looked at which materials were insulators and conductors for our circuits too.
We reached our goal to have a dojo party! The children have worked extremely hard and thoroughly enjoy receiving dojos for working hard, trying their best, showing kindness, gold, silver and star pupil awards. I am extremely proud of everyone in Rowling class for their determination, resilience and their kindness they show every day.
The past three weeks, Rowling class have explored the outdoors. Forest School has provided the children with so many experiences and developed many skills. The class have had story time, games, creating homes for the Gruffalo and friends, den building, knot tying, toasting marshmallows around the fire and learning how to explore outdoors safely.
We are beyond proud of everyone in Coxhoe for helping raise money for ‘Smiles for Miles’. Rowling was rewarded with an active afternoon for raising the most money out of the classes. They thoroughly enjoyed their fruit platter and active games, well done everyone!
Every Friday the children are given the opportunity to swap their books from home with one from the box in the classroom or to take one each week and swap it with another. The children thoroughly enjoyed exploring the different books provided and sharing their books with their peers..
English - roll on the wall character outline.
In English we are reading the book UG. The children have explored many of the characters so far in the book. Their task was to draw around on their peers and fill the middle of their character with descriptive words and write down what we know about the character so far around the outside.
Skipping into year 3 and 4
The children really enjoyed their skipping workshop. They developed skills as well as learnt new ones. Even Miss Dent had a go and improved some of her skills!
Welcome to Rowling Class!
We have had a super exciting first week back in school! We have had lots of fun exploring new topics of the curriculum and areas of the school!
Mento and Cola Experiment
During our transition week the children across all three classes went head to head in a mento and cola experiment. The children designed a rocket (which was indeed the cola) and they watched their rockets explode when dropping mento's into the cola. The carbon dioxide is collected from around the mints and that collection of gas forces the liquid from the bottle to explode.
