The class are continuing to learn about plants in science. In this lesson, the children learnt how water is transported around a plant and created a fun experiment to show this!
There’s only one way to learn about capacity: wait for a super hot day; fill huge buckets of water, find lots of measuring jugs and get very, VERY wet!
Science this term is all about plants! Their first lesson was learning about the parts of a plant and how a plant grows. What better way to find out than to plant some seeds themselves!
The book that we’re using in English this term is ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl. They have spent the last few days creating a recipe for their own marvellous medicines and today they had a go at making them!
The children had the chance to use the glockenspiels that Gastrells acquired recently! They started by exploring what a glockenspiel is and how to play them, before having a go at playing the beginning of ‘The Dragon Song’.
The class spent a lesson using mirrors to investigate the lines of symmetry in 2d shapes!
Thanks to the relaxation of ‘lockdown regulations’ the Ospreys and Sparrowhawks have been able to spend their golden times together! In the Ospreys classroom there is arts and crafts, in Sparrowhawks there are boardgames and the children also have the choice to go outside and play!
The Ospreys had a visit from PCSO Amy today, who taught them all about the importance of being safe online!
This term in computing, the children have been learning about programming, algorithms and debugging! We’ve done lots of ‘unplugged’ activities such as programming Beebots and ‘programming’ each other, before moving onto using Code.org to practice their coding skills.
We had a wonderful day dressing up as the hybrid animals that we created in our English lessons this term. The costumes were brilliant and the children loved it!
