What we've been up to...
Forest School - Campfire Cooking
This week, to end our three week block of forest school, we lit the campfire and learned all about how to stay safe around a fire.
We also used the fire to make some delicious treats and had a feast together.
We roasted marshmallows, kneeling by the fire in pairs, using the respect position, before sandwiching the toasted marshmallows between biscuits and chocolate buttons.
I have been extremely impressed with the whole of Walliams class’ behaviour, knowledge and dedication throughout their three weeks. Well done!
Walliams class started their block of forest school this week. All the children were very excited and they all behaved really well, listening carefully to all of the safety talks and learning about the importance of preserving and looking after our local environment.
We read the story "The Room on the Broom" which was very fitting as it was Halloween week.
We made our own broomsticks using the natural materials outdoors and our newly learned knot skills.
The children all enjoyed getting muddy too, making their own magic potions and explaining their "powers" to the rest of the class. We had some that would turn their friends into the animal they best resembled and another that would turn the characters from the story into humans so that they could be friends forever.
The children are all very much looking forward to next week's session.
We all enjoyed learning and performing our Harvest Festival song, Pop Go The Peas!
Year 3 Recorder
Our amazing Year 3s have been practising their recorder playing. We are so proud of how fast the are progressing!
Stone Age Research
We have used our investigation and research skills to find out interesting facts about the Stone Age.
We used our D&T plus our science skills to build working models of the muscles in our arms.
How Our Skeletons Work!
We have been investigating the different bones that make up our skeletons and how they help to support our bodies.
Outdoor Maths - Place Value
We have been using our outdoor spaces to partition four digit numbers and build on our understanding of place value!
We used our "Role on the Wall" method to talk about our different characteristics and personalities.
Our New Class Book - UG
The children have been exploring how to make a pair of trousers using gathered materials, just like our story's main character.
