Our theme was ‘The Rainbow Fish’
Sharing instruments in the music workshop.
Modern and clean facilities in a historic building.
Plenty to keep us busy! We will be back, I am sure.
We have been learning about people who help us in Green Class. We have done lots of exciting activities to help us explore our topic, here are some of our photos:
We pretended to be police officers and made our own warrant cards
We created our own emergency vehicles using paint for our display board
After we learnt about how to call 999 in an emergency, we had a visit from the fire service on Monday. We learnt how to stop, drop and roll if our clothes were on fire, and we were very proud to show off our new knowledge that we had learnt in class.
Then on Wednesday we had a visit from PCSO Ben who came in his police car. He showed us what uniform police officers wear and we were able to ask him questions about the radio and whether he had a police dog. The best bit was seeing the police car!
This week in Green Class we have been reading “006 and a Bit” by Kes Gray, all about a girl called Daisy who decides she wants to become a spy! To explore the story, we dressed up as spies, wrote secret messages to each other and discovered that we could decipher codes in phonics.
In Science this week we thought about how we could keep our teeth healthy. We made posters to remind ourselves to brush our teeth twice a day, we sorted foods into groups of food that is good for our teeth and food that is bad for our teeth, and then we all cleaned some giant teeth! To finish our learning we practised cleaning our own teeth using a two-minute timer – we had to brush them for a long time!
For the Christmas Performance Pink Class had been given the task of creating the Three Kings using art. Here are some photos of the students creating works of art both visually and through different textures.
Some of us explored different textures.
Some of us painted.
And others did some cutting and sticking.
The finished articles.
Just before Christmas we visited the Waie Inn. Students had time exploring the soft play area before they had lunch and then they they explored the play area outside.
The students behaviour throughout the day was fantastic. Everyone had a great day.
Students really wanted to make Pizza last term and we decided to make them for our Winter Warmer (Social with the rest of the Key Stage).This is held in the round house in the Rural Skills Area and is becoming a termly event.
After students had chopped up and prepared their toppings they then had to assemble their pizzas. This meant spreading tomato puree and spreading cheese. Then they could add toppings of their choice. Making some extra ones for their Key Stage friends.
Multi-faith week – Buddhism
Gold class celebrated Bodhi Day. Bodhi Day is an important day in the Buddhist calendar. It is a celebration of when Siddhartha Gautauma (Shakyamuni), who later became Buddha, experienced enlightenment while sitting under a Bodhi tree.
We made a Bodhi tree with heart shaped leaves and cookies in the shape of the leaves. We all listened to Buddhist music and chanting and shared vegetarian foods to celebrate Bodhi Day.
