Summer 2 - Beachcombers WOW!
Today we found out a little about features of a beach location. Outside we made sandcastles, paddled, fished for sea creatures, made patterns with shells and went to a seaside shop! Inside some of us painted ice-cream sun catchers whilst others painted shells and pebbles.
SUMMER 1 THE SCENTED GARDEN
We enjoyed investigating seeds and plants this half-term. We made savoury muffins using the micro-greens that we grew. During our art sessions, we enjoyed painting in the style of Georgia O’Keeffe and Claude Monet. A trip to Shawfield Road allotment finished the term for us!
SUMMER 1 - TOPIC WOW! The Scented Garden
We made our own mini-gardens and we are going to watch the seeds grow. We looked at Georgia O'Keeffe's paintings of flowers and used them to inspire our own artwork.
SPRING 2 - Muck, Mess & Mixtures
We enjoyed our trip to Guildford this half-term and learnt all about key features of the town. We compared two churches - Grace Baptist and Holy Trinity. We had such an enjoyable day! In art, we made pinch pots out of clay. We had a visit from Michael - a fire safety officer and we also had a visit from the author Sean Taylor.
We had a lot of fun getting messy - have a look at our photos to see us exploring mixtures and getting in a mess!
SPRING 1 TOWERS, TUNNELS AND TURRETS
We have enjoyed learning all about castles this half-term. We have learnt all about Windsor Castle and can tell you a little about Guildford Castle which we will be visiting soon. We can describe features of castles and talk about people who lived and worked in a castle. We collaborated well when designing and making our own castles.
SPRING 1 TOWERS, TUNNELS & TURRETS
We have started our topic practising our collaboration skills. Can you build a tall tower using just tape and newspaper?
We have enjoyed being out and about in the local area this half-term. We visited Ash museum and investigated Victorian artefacts. We walked to Ash Library and wrote all about our visit.
This half-term we made a treasure map and wrote a set of instructions for others to follow and make their own map.
Also, we have written our own story called THE NIGHT PIRATES.
In Geography we have learnt about the continents and oceans. We have looked at the equator and the North/South Poles.
We have designed and made our own wheeled vehicles that can be used to carry buried treasure!
