Greys 8th July

Greys class have been very busy practising for the end of term production this week and are now sounding rather fabulous. We practised as a whole school on Monday and Wednesday and it was lovely to see it all coming together rather nicely.

On Tuesday and Thursday morning we went into our new classes. In Greys we learned all about the Olympics and made our own Olympic medals from clay. First we rolled the clay into a ball, flattened it, shaped it and then made patterns using a cocktail stick.

On Thursday we then painted it creating our own colourful designs.

Max then showed us how to make paper aeroplanes and we had the Greys class paper aeroplane Olympics.

The following day we continued with our Olympic theme and ran relay races. Mrs Hawkins couldn’t believe how good we were at this.

We then pretended we were throwing the javelin, which was so much fun.

We had a great time together and are really looking forward to September.

Greys class have been looking at position in Maths and have been predicting what a 3D shape would look like after a 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 turn and also revisiting the order of the days of the week and what we do on different days.

We had a great time learning about the history of flight and watched a video of how people tried to fly years ago. You can follow this link to see why we got rather excited when we saw this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gN-ZktmjIfE

We also learned all about the first steam trains and George Stephenson and had to imagine what it felt like to ride a steam train for the first time.

Benedict was so inspired about our study of Viking longboats that he decided to make one out of lego and brought it in to share with us.

Dylan made a paper helicopter for Show and Tell and showed us all how to make one.
