AUTUMN TERM 1 2018 

 

Writing

We have recently started a new system of learning to write effectively. As part of this system, we work collaboratively on writing a class story or other text, which is built up in sentences before working independently on our own work. It is still early days, but we have been very impressed by the contributions children have made to our class story. Here is our class fantasy story so far...

STEAM 

Linked learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. 

As part of our History topic (Titanic) and Science investigations (Materials), we have looked at properties of water and ice. We made mini icebergs and looked at melting ice. We investigated how to speed up the process with salt, and also used our melting icebergs to mix coloured dyes. This helped us learn about colour mixing for art work which we completed later.

Science and Titanic Art Work

We have looked at different materials that float and are waterproof, in order to plan what materials are suitable to build a boat.

We also learnt about oils floating on water and used marbling inks to mix colours and make coloured, patterned paper.

We used the papers to make seascape pictures of the Titanic.

Here are some of the collaged pictures and a display in our classroom.

 

Thanks to all the fantastic support at home! We have seen some marvellous homework, this half term!

We really enjoyed Nottingham Playhouse visiting us and also took part in a drama workshop with the actors following the show.

Later in class, we looked at play scripts and how actors read and act in different roles. 

African Art

This half term, as part of our Kenya topic, we have looked at Amazwi Contempory art created by Sarah Shindu and Shake Makelele and created our own chalk African images. You can see some of our work displayed on the display walls in our classroom.

Later, we designed and made masks using papier-mache based on African tribal masks.

From Caterpillar to Butterfly

This term, we have been observing the changes in our class caterpillars as they have grown and then transformed into crysallis. We were very excited at the end of the term, when we watched a butterfly emerge and then later, set it free in the school grounds.
