Year 3 class learned how to make bread and used the right tools to slice, mix, spread, bake and knead. During this activity, they practised weighing ingredients accurately. They learned new vocabulary such as loaf, yeast, dough and kneading and learned how to use kitchen tools carefully. The children really enjoyed eating their fresh loaves of bread as the end of the day and they had brought special spreads to eat them with! Delicious!
The children in Reception arrived at school a few weeks ago to find underpants hanging on a washing line in the playground and the classroom. They had strange green handprints on them! After reading the story ‘Aliens Love Underpants’, the class decided that aliens must have been to the gardens near the school, stolen the underpants and dropped them as they were flying back to their planet! The children were inspired to draw and write about aliens, rockets and trips to the moon. They made their own rockets using junk modelling items, drew the planets using pastels and sequenced the planets too. The children also chose to make their own books about the planets and really enjoyed creating a space station outside using the boxes and crates. They also enjoyed wearing the jet pack made from large water bottles to explore the moon.
Year 4&5 visited Granada and stayed overnight. On day two, the class enjoyed a healthy buffet breakfast before spending the day at Granada Science Park (Parque de las Ciencias). This is an interactive museum where the children experienced many different things including:
Year 3 enjoyed a Geography day filled with different activities. The day began with a trip to San Pedro to conduct various surveys on the human and physical features of the town. The children enjoyed using their observational skills to carefully tally the various features they had chosen to survey and used their directional skills to say when they were walking North, East, South or West.
Year 2 have been learning about the British Artist Andy Goldsworthy and his sculptures. They visited the beach to collect their own natural materials such as shells, stones, bark, grass, flowers and sticks. The children used these to create small sculptures at the beach. Lastly, the class were then inspired to paint their own rocks with shapes and patterns found in nature.
As part of their music lessons with Miss Gwenno, Year 3 composed a Pentatonic song. The class were reminded of rhythms that had been previously taught and chose a form for their song. Once they knew which notes could be chosen, the children learned how to place them on a 5-line treble staff.
Year 1 had a busy time creating robots during their Design and Technology day. The children brought a mountain of recycled items to school and enjoyed creating their own robots. The children were challenged to make their creations more stable at the base and some had creative ideas. It was lovely to see the children helping and taking inspiration from each other! Well done!
In their Biology class, Year 3 children conducted a flower dissection in order to learn the different parts of flowering plants. They then separated and labelled each part. Finally, they used a magnifying glass to see the pollen and ovules closely.
