Greys class have had a great week this week, especially towards the end of the week.
The Year 1s have been doing all sorts of assessments in the mornings whilst the Year 2s have been revising time in Maths and contractions and homophones in Literacy.
We have finally finished our seagulls, which look absolutely fantastic on display in our classroom and we are now working on a seaside collage.
On Wednesday afternoon we made jellyfish using bowls, tissue paper and glue. We tore strips of tissue to create a colourful collage effect.
We used our hands to create fish out of handprints for our Father’s Day cards.
In French we have been learning the words for different clothes and had lots of fun trying to match the correct word to the different pictures.
On Thursday we went to the Lookout Centre at Bracknell on a Pushes and Pulls workshop. We learned all about different forces and what makes them happen.
Freya pushed and pulled a buggy.
Astrid pushed the pedal to make the rocket fly and we discovered that it was the air inside that pushed the rocket up.
Nancy, Dylan and Josie had to push and pull play doh by squeezing, stretching and twisting.
Max and Joseph had to work out how to pull the container up and push it onto a boat.
We pulled with all our might to see whose rope was the longest.
The whole class climbed all the way to the top of a very tall tower, which was so high up above the ground. We were the brave ones who stayed the longest at the top!
On Friday we wrote blurbs for The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson making sure that we used different suffixes in our writing and included at least one final question.
Then after break we split up into our houses and worked together to create shelters and dens to raise money for Den Day. We all worked really well together as teams.
In the afternoon we labelled different islands around the British Isles and then watched a film about the life of two children who live on the Isles of Scilly. We then spilt into groups and thought of how life on an island is similar and different to ours on the mainland.
