Jane Stynes is Class teacher.  Kelly Level 3

Teaching assistants team, Nessa, Ann, Donna, Hayley, Paul and Jeanette.

Let's hope it is a sunny term with chance to get plenty of growing done outside.

The Secret Garden

In DT we threaded Cheerios into shapes for the birds. Then we hung them on the tree.

We learnt about parts of plants that you can eat then planted lettuces.

Planting sunflower seeds

Look how well our beans grew. We planted them in the garden.

We are trying to grow a beanstalk . Some beans have started to grow well. We can see roots and shoots.

We added our initials to egg cups and planted them with cress on Thursday. There was plenty of water on the cotton wool and almost magically on Friday we found the cress had started to grow. This is known as germinating.

The cress grew well. We measured it was 5 cm tall.

After a week it had grown enough to make our own egg and cress sandwich. Some of us were surprised by how nice it tasted.

We are clearing and watering our garden patch.

Some Orange students made decorations for the garden in the DT lesson.

There might be a frog in your garden but we hope it is not as big as this.

In Computing we made beautiful flower pictures

Fruit and vegetables grow in a garden. We used fruit and vegetables in our DT lesson to make animals.

In music we are listening carefully to make responses and making shakers to accompany nature songs.

Then we played them to a folk tune on video from live music now.

Practical counting. How many beanbags in the target. Throw the dice and do correct number of bounces on the racquet.

Number bonds to 10. We worked these out with Numicon. Look how well we can write numerals.

Learning about money. We spent 2p in our class shop. It could buy 2 stickers or 1 pencil.

Red nose fun.

We learnt about Roman soldiers and did a Marching drill.

We read the book Mad about Pizza and decided to become Pizza sellers. We began by designing our Pizza boxes.

Some of the class are making Roman shields

There are some beautiful, old buildings in Rome.

Inspired by the Italan buildings in Rome

A great pyramid structure

Plus Pisa

We learnt about boats, the Italian boats in Venice are called gondolas.

We made our own boats and found out if they could float or sink.

Orange class began their Italian Adventure. Some students at home and some at school but we are learning together on zoom. We had a story about George and the Pizza and followed this by drawing our own pizzas using Purple Mash To paint programme.

Jane made pizza on zoom, we counted, doubled and added to find out the number of ingredients. Now we are going to do some cooking ourselves and work on our number skills.

How many mushrooms and pepper pieces can you see?

We found out about Italian food and tried to knot spaghetti. The fun continued with threading onto spaghetti.

lasagne. We did lots of doubling as Jane made a lasagne. Lizzie counted and recognised numerals to make her pizza.

Lizzie wrote an acrostic poem using the word Pasta

Children in Need Day Activities - Lots of fun had by all!

We listened to the story of Icarus and Daedalus and found out how about how Icarus burnt his wings from flying too close to the sun.  After listening to the story, we made our own class wings.  We then wore the wings and practised flying our kite we had also made.

For our kite designs we looked at lots of different designs of kites from around the world and when they were invented in China.  We then designed our own individual kite using coloured geometric shapes.  Finally using our designs, we created our kites using a range of materials and patterns.
