To finish of our incredible topic on the Mr Men we made some fantastic houses for them to live in. We carefully matched the materials to what each Mr Man or LIttle Miss would like or need.
See our incredible creations below.
We also had a phenomenal parent event where all of of our parents and guardians were able to come along and try our amazing range of Mr Men and materials inspired activities.
It was really a busy and amazing term and we are sure that the new term will be just as action packed.
We had an incredible time today with a special visit from Ben the juggler. He amazed adults and children alike with his super, juggling skills and involved the children with his tricks! Everyone who was there really enjoyed themselves and were left talking excitedly about it all play time!!
Our topic learning this week has been all about Brunel and finding our what an amazing person he was and why he is so famous. Please discuss with us why he is one of the most famous Britons ever. We learnt about all the incredible local landmarks that he designed like the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the Box Tunnel.
We have had an incredible start to the term. We have already been to lots of exciting places and had a number of exciting visitors in.
Today we were visited by Skippy John who showed us how to skip and to bounce rather than jump.
See us in action below.
Last Friday we went to Brokerswood. We did 3 exciting activities. Please see the video below of us building some amazing shelters.
We also showed our archery skills.
We then made some amazing woodland sculptures as well.
What an incredible start to the term!
We ended the term off with this fantastic event in the hall.
We invited all of our parents to come to our fantastic Farmers Market where they could see lots of the incredible things that we had been doing in the term.
First of all our parents could see the result of our extremely exciting experiment involving plants and the different conditions in which they need to grow.
Then we tried to make the tallest flowers possible. They were definitely much bigger than the beanstalk in Jack's story.
We tried amazing apples to see which one tasted the most delicious and best of all we had not 1,2 or 3 but 4 kinds of gorgeous soup to try.
We hope that everybody enjoyed the day as much as we did.
Today, the Year 2 children were lucky enough to visit the library. Some of us remembered to bring our library cards along and were able to borrow some exciting books, such as 'Where's Wally?' and 'Grub's Pups'. If you do not have a library card, remember it is free to join the library and you can be any age! Basil the librarian told us that recently even some 5 day old twins joined the library! Basil read us some exciting stories, including 'The Book With No Pictures' and 'Do Not Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus'- both of which made us laugh out loud. We found out how the library is organised into fiction and non-fiction sections and how the books are ordered alphabetically by the initial of the author's surname.
We also managed to squeeze in a visit to Westbury park, where we used our sketch books to draw some beautiful pictures of things that grow. We carefully sketched the Spring flowers blooming and lots of the very large, old trees. As a final treat, we spent a little bit of the afternoon in the park. The roundabout was certainly a firm favourite with us all!
We had an incredible Fire Safety Talk today. The Fire Officer showed us exactly what to do in case of an emergency wherever we were.
With Mrs Rockey's help we were able to practise the key skill of keeping low and go. This is because we found out the breathing smoke can be very dangerous for you and that in a fire there is less smoke on the floor.
Some members of the class gave us an incredible demonstration of what to do if you are on fire yourself.
We made and tested some incredible models to see which ones would stand up best to earthquakes.
This is because this term we are studying Japan where earthquakes can occur quite frequently.
Here we are making our incredible creations!
Here are our fantastic earthquake proof houses which you will be able to view at the end of term exhibition. We discovered that shorter wider houses were better able to stand up to the strains of an earthquake.
We have had an incredible start to the new year in Koalas Class. The highlight of the very first week has to be the incredible Dragon Dance which we preformed in the hall. We will keep practicing and would love to have the chance to show you soon.
See the videos below to take in what a magical experience this was.
Although we have nearly ended one calendar year, we are just a third of the way through the academic year. Koalas Class have made an incredible start- giving 100% to all that they have tried. This has been true across all curriculum subjects, plays or fantastic singing as can be seen below.
It is even better with sound!
Another one with apologies for the singing of the bigger Elf at the back.
We hope that everybody had a great Christmas and wish everybody a very happy New Year!
The children have started to make some fantastic baskets. Look below to see the incredible work that Koala Class have created.
A massive thank you to all the parents who have come along to support and also to Mrs Reilands for her expertise and patience. We look forward to putting up even more incredible basket pictures in the weeks to come.
