Gosh! What an unusual time we find ourselves in, before school was closed, Otters had been doing some brilliant learning. We had our exciting launch to our WW2 topic where the children learnt lots of exciting new things, such as, rationing, being an evacuee, the dances that they did and artefacts from WW2.
We also had World Book Day, the children put a fantastic effort in with their outfits, I loved them all! The children took part in a variety of activities on WBD, including trying to persuade the Crayons to come back!
We had an exciting afternoon filled with Science experiments, where my classroom became very messy! However, the children absolutely loved it they all particularly enjoyed making the slime!
Also, we set a homework to do with WW2, we managed to look at a few of these before school closed and I must say I was very impressed! Thank you Otters & parents for putting so much effort into these.
Below are some photos of all we've been put up to before school closed. Enjoy :)
Otters have made a brilliant start to the year. We have begun our Ancient Greeks topic, we kick started this with an afternoon of Greek food tasting. The children tried: pitta, houmous, tzatiki, feta, halloumi, olives, yoghurt and figs. They were all brilliant and at least tried the foods, many of them didn't like the olives!
In English, we are focusing on Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief which the children are loving, all of our pieces of writing up till Christmas will be based on this film.
Our Guided Reading book is Who Let The Gods Out? The children are already enjoying this book and can't wait to read more, make sure you ask them about it as I'm sure they would love to tell you about it.
In Art, we used our colour mixing skills to create a faded background in which the children are going to stick a Greek God on, to make it pop out, we will upload pictures once we are finished!
PE - We have started Hockey and we have also started practicing our Greek dancing, keep an eye out for a video in the near future when we have perfected the Greek dancing.
As you can see, we have already made a busy yet exciting start to the year, keep an eye on the class page for further updates and pictures.
What an exciting start to the year we had! We got to go to Burbage Valley for a day of exciting activities! We got to go rock climbing, which all of the children tried and they were brilliant at. We also tried scrambling which meant climbing over lots of rocks and into some small spaces which again the children loved.
