Welcome to our blog

Our new blog will be updated regularly with information about school events, examples of children’s learning and also additional work and support for children at home.
Our class blogs provide our children with a real audience and purpose for writing.

Please feel free to comment and give us feedback on any of our posts.
Your comments will be monitored before going live and then will  be shared with the children.

Music

 

We have been learning about pitch and exploring high and low sounds made from chime bars, glockenspiels and water bottles. We discovered that the longer the chime bar or the more empty the water bottle the lower the sound and the smaller the chime bar and fuller the water bottle the higher the pitch!

Space

We have been learning about the planets in our solar system. We made the mnemonic…

My

Very

Enormous

Mouldy

Jam

Sandwich

Under

Newspaper

to help us remember the order.

Then we painted the planets after researching in our non-fiction books and they are being placed in our Space role play area.

 

Meditation

In RE, we have been learning about the Hinduism religion. Today we discussed the Aum symbol and how meditation is important to Hindu’s. We put the aum sound on and practised traditional meditation stances. Puffins class were so relaxed afterwards!

Hygiene PSHE

 

We have done a hand washing experiment this afternoon. We touched bread with hand that have not been washed, hands that have been washed with hand gel and then hands that have been washed with soap. We also washed our hands using the NHS guidelines as a whole class. Then made predictions about what the bread will look like in 2 weeks. We will keep you posted!

In computing, we have started a new topic looking at algorithms and programming. We learnt that algorithms are a precise set of instructions that computers need to be able to program. We practised being robots and instructing our friends to build a model out of Lego. We had lots of fun and learnt that if you don’t give an instruction the program will not work correctly.
