On Monday 9th May we were learning about measuring mass in Maths. We have been making flapjacks by weighing out the ingredients and mixing them all together. We had lots of fun as you can see in these pictures.
Mrs Glover comes every Wednesday afternoon to teach us how to play the ukulele. The instruments are so colourful – we all get our own ukulele to practice during lessons.
Low Barns Nature Reserve
This term we went on a trip to Low Barns Nature Reserve as part of our work on animals and habitats. First we went bird watching and pond dipping to observe and learn about the different creatures that lived there. We all then went on a bug hunt and played some exciting insect games. We had a fantastic time and learned a lot!
World Book Day
Wow! Look at the fabulous costumes we wore on World Book Day! Can you spot your favourite book character?
Mrs Coull comes every Wednesday morning to teach us how to play the ukelele. We sing and act lots of songs, too! The instruments are so colourful – everyone has a favourite colour. What’s yours?
We celebrated Fair Trade fortnight with a Banana Day! We love excuses to dress up, and this was just one of those! There were a few monkeys and 29 children to enjoy all the free bananas donated by the Langley Park Co-op.
First Aid in Class 2
We tried to bandage each other for cuts in our hands and bumps on our heads. We put slings on for arm injuries. Malcolm, a first aid trainer, came to show us how to do it properly.
Classes 1 and 2 went to play tag rugby with lots of other schools. Here are some action shots!
We read a play and wrote reports about wallabies. Then we looked at some aboriginal art and created pictures about the characters in the play
What a wonderful morning we had in the wood! There were lots of things to do and a super story to take part in!
Our Visit to Cassop
We went to Cassop Primary School to find out about rocks and fossils. We sorted rocks according to their properties and found fossils in slate. It was a fun morning. Then Mr McManners told us all about wind turbines and we returned to the class to make our own! We tested how effective they were by cutting off blades, or twisting the blades to different angles. We then put them in wind tunnels and measured the force of each sample. It was a good competition!
Our Wildlife Area
Clare and Tom came from Oases to teach us about wildlife. First of all we thought about how dependent on its habitat each creature is. We made a web linking these ideas. Then we looked in the wildlife area for habitats that were best suited to particular minibeasts.
After lunch we made bird boxes and bee homes for our school gardens. The loppers were quite heavy to hold, but we managed to chop the canes to make the bee homes. We used our DT skills to make the wooden bird boxes.
