We celebrated the Queens Jubilee!

We have been practising the running stitch ready for our final piece in D&T!

This half term we will be looking at toys from the past. We enjoyed talking about our favourite toys and the materials they have been made with.

 

We completed an experiment over time. We looked at some beads and made some predictions about how they could grow. We added water and realised they did not grow. We asked questions and made simple observations. The next morning we came and noticed the beads were much bigger. We asked lots of questions and were amazed by the growth. We used words such as absorb to explain what had happened.

 

 

We had a shock this morning! When we arrived all of our chairs were gone...even Mrs Hussain and Mrs Shaheen were missing!

We all recieved letters from our chairs!

 

 

We spent some time this morning reading our letters - all of our chairs left for different reasons! We enjoyed reading each others as well!

 

 

 

We create some art work inspired by Duncan from 'The Day the Crayons Quit'

World Book Day 2022

 

02/02 A visit to Lapworth Museum 

 

 

 

We had a wonderful visit to Lampworth Museum which linked in with our learning in History.  We spent the morning with Izzy handling fossils, creating fossil prints and going on a fossil hunt around the museum!

 

After our picnic lunch, we spent some time exploring and sketching the fossils. 

 

 

 

We looked at different fossils and used a magnifying glass to look closely and make observations.

Sketching our favourite fossils

We met an Allosaurus, his name was Roary.

We enjoyed a picnic lunch in the garden!

We went on a hunt around the museum to find lots of different information.

26.01.22 Plants

This week, we have started to look at our Science topis which is all about plants.  

 

We will be thinking about: 

 

What does a plant need to grow?

What plants can you find outside?

What are the parts of a plant?

 

27.01.22 What are the parts of a plant?

 

Today in Science, we have been looking at parts of a plant. 

Can you name and remember what the different parts do?

 

Fossil Hunting

10.1.22

 

This is a super exciting term in KS1.  We are starting our project on Fossil Hunting.  

 

What is it like to be a fossil hunter?

How do you identify fossils?

How are fossils formed?

Who are the real fossil hunters?

 

 

What are fossils?

 

They are remains or traces of ancient life. 

 

Fossils of big animals like T-rex are very rare. Rare means there are not many of them. Fossils of smaller creatures like ammonites and trilobites are much easy to find.

Portraits of Mary Anning

We have been using the clay resources to create textures for our fossils.

Do rocks tell a story?

Part and whole model

 

In maths we have been using the part and whole model.  Watch the videos below to find out how the whole part model has been used for addition within 10, finding the missing part and addition fact families.  

 

Can you make a whole part model at home and have a go at writing addition fact families for numbers within 10?

 

Addition within 10

This video is an introduction into addition and subtraction. It teaches children how to add numbers within 10, using a part-whole model.

Finding a missing part

What do animals do during the winter?

 

This week in science, we have been looking at animals in winter.  We asked the question 'What do animals do during winter?' 

 

We have learnt three new words: adapt, hibernate and migrate.

 

Adapt – Some animals adapt, which means they change their behaviour or bodies. Some animals grow thicker fur to keep warm, some eat food which they have collected in the autumn and saved for winter, and other animals eat different kinds of food as the seasons change.

 

Hibernate: Some animals hibernate for some, or all, of the winter because the weather is cold and it is hard to find food. They find a safe place and fall into a very deep sleep. They don’t need to eat because during the autumn they eat extra food to help feed them in winter.

 

Migrate– Some animals migrate, which means they travel to another place where the weather is warmer and it’s easier to find food.
