This week we have been reading the story The Gingerbread Man. The children enjoyed baking some gingerbread men with Mrs Thompson. They were yummy!
This week Y3 were set a DT project linked to our Geography topic ‘The Rainforest’ We really enjoyed designing and then model making our own rainforests- we even included each different layer!
Take a look at our models!
Year 2 have had an action packed few weeks getting into the festive spirit and have been taking part in some fantastic Christmas activities. The children have designed wonderful Christmas cards and beautiful calendars using paint to create a tree for all seasons.
Christmas party day was brilliant, starting off with an online pantomime which was hilarious – the children got involved, singing along to the songs and shouting at the characters! They had a wonderful time dancing and playing party games in the classroom, we have some fabulous dancers.
They enjoyed a visit to Harton Grotto for hot chocolate with marshmallows, a story and some singing. There was even presents under the tree!
Finally we had visit from Tides of Change, the children made their own Christmas tree decoration using twigs and then roasted marshmallows to make delicious s’mores. It’s been a truly wonderful time and we have enjoyed every minute.
If you’re looking for more free STEM related activities, check out the James Dyson Foundation. There are loads of fun-filled challenges for the children to carry out.
There are lots of brilliant sites and resources available for STEM related activities to carry out during the school closures.
We hope you find these useful!
On Shrove Tuesday, traditionally people make pancakes. Nursery very much enjoyed preparing the ingredients and mixing the batter for their pancakes. They liked adding the toppings and eating. We think they enjoyed them! What do you think?
Year 1 had a fantastic time designing and making biscuits as part of Design and Technology. They got to taste test a range of biscuits, thinking about the texture and flavour of the biscuits. Children then carried out surveys in the class to find out which one was the favourite. They eventually designed and made their own biscuits.
It was delicious work!
