We had a great time at the beach yesterday taking our science to the beach. The children used their senses to hear, see and smell different things. They then created a skeleton thinking of the bones that we use. Well done year 1 for being amazing!
Year 5 have enjoyed their first visit of the school year to the beach. They took in the calming sounds of the sea before going on a scavenger hunt to see what they could find. With their findings they sorted them – they chose how to sort them, some sorted according to size, others by colour. Following this, they created some wonderful Day of the Dead mask images using the sand and the items that they had found.
We took our science learning about bodies to the beach and made sand skeletons!
In maths, we were learning Roman numerals. The children used equipment from the classroom to make Roman numerals and correctly say what number they had made.
The children had a great time exploring the outdoor environment this afternoon to reinforce greater than, less than and equal to equations that they have been learning about in maths this week. They worked with their learning partners to gather leaves, conkers and twigs to compare the different amounts.
We have started our computing lessons by looking at staying safe online. We discussed the importance of age related apps, parental controls and restrictions when using social media apps.
We have a great team of Year 5 and 6 sports leaders. The sports leaders will work in small groups to assist children in fun activities, alongside a Premier Sports coach, during lunch times.
