'From the Moor to the Sea'
Keep checking for the latest updates from the class.
This is what we have been up to in the first half of term.
At the start of term we had a fantastic trip to Dartmoor.
This gave us inspiration for our paintings.
The children have started to learn the clarinets this month. They have all cleaned and assembled their own instrument and have played the note E. The class have been very excited and are trying really hard. A big thanks to Miss Welsh for all her help.
Trying to run a mile once a week has kept the children active and healthy at the start of this term. They have tried to see how many laps they can do in 15 minutes. The record so far is 32 laps!
It has been important to warm up before our activities. The children have enjoyed playing cups and cones and rats and rabbits.
The children have been improving their gymnastic skills in the hall. They have been balancing, rolling and travelling in a variety of ways. (More pictures to follow.)
In class, the children have been learning how to find Book, Chapter and verse in the Bible. They had great fun seeing who could find a verse first and read what it said.
The children read the story of Peter and Andrew, two fishermen who gave up their nets to become the first Disciples. The children quickly drew their favourite posessions and wrote a few sentences about the best things about their weekend. They were then asked to 'give these up' by rubbing out their work, tearing it up or giving it away. It caused a lot of discussion and lots of cries of 'No!!!'
It was a great way for the children to see how the first Disciples gave up everything to follow Jesus.
The Science Dome came to our school and they put on a great show, all about different states of matter. The children really enjoyed it and wrote some great pieces of work, retelling their experiences of the day.
Our Stone Age trip to Saltram Woods
An amazing day out! The children built dens, created fire and collected natural paint colours from the hedgerows.
Designing and making Stone Age tools and weapons has been a highlight this week. The next step is to paint them and decorate with twine and leather.
