George and Alex enjoyed their trip to Smithills Farm.
Take a look at the photos
They saw lots of different types of animals and even got to feed some of them.
Sea Life Centre
We have been to the Sea life Centre at the Trafford Centre for our latest trip. First we explored turtle beach and found out about new born turtles and their journey to the sea. Next we met lots of different types of fish. Our favourites were the lion fish and the sharks. We then met Cammy and Ernie the magnificent green sea turtles. After this we saw the delicate sea horses and jellyfish. We finished our trip by stroking a starfish!
We had a great day out and saw lots of fantastic creatures.
Teddy Bear Biscuits
In LR, we have designed our own teddy bear biscuit toys. Because it is winter Olympics, we decided to design our teddy bear biscuits skiing.
Children had lots of fun learning cooking skills like rubbing, mixing, cutting and baking. We then made icing sugar and stick on eyes, noses and ski’s
We enjoyed eating these biscuits nearly as much as making them.
On Wed 14th Feb we went on our trip to Legoland.
When we arrived we listened to how Lego is made. We then watched a 4d Lego movie about the Lego knights. We had to wear special glasses and the characters looked like they were jumping out of the screen to meet us.
Next we had a Lego workshop where we had to listen and follow instructions to make a Lego car.
After lunch we had a chance to build our own Lego models and take photos of them using the i pads.
We had a great trip and loved making models out of Lego.
Topic Letter: Topic_letter Healthy BonesLR.pdf
In order for us to stay healthy we have to eat a healthy, balanced diet which includes fruit and vegetables. The Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo was famous for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits and vegetables. We created our own portraits using this idea.
As part of our topic on Healthy Bones we have been looking at our different body parts. We drew around Alex and then labelled all the parts of the body we could name.
We used pasta shapes to make skeleton bodies, just like big skeleton and little skeleton from the book Funny Bones which we have been reading.
As part of our History / British Values work we have found out about Remembrance Day. We learnt that on Remembrance Day we think of all the soldiers who have died fighting in the wars. We wear poppies as during World War 1 the soldiers remembered seeing poppies growing in the fields near to the battlefields.
We looked at a painting of poppy fields by the French painter Claude Monet. We painted our own poppy fields in the style of Monet.
The Good Samaritan
In RE we have been learning about Christianity and how important the bible is to Christians. We have read different stories from the bible. One of our favourites was The Good Samaritan. We acted out the story and talked about the message in the story - how we should always help each other.
During Art sessions this half term we created owls using different materials and techniques. We painted owls, used autumn leaves to create a collage and even used felt and other fabrics sewn together and then stuffed to create 3d Owls. Cole and Jenson tried very hard with their sewing.
Olly The Owl
In class we have read the book Big Bad Owl. In the story Scowl the Big Bad Owl sits on a grumpy branch when he is feeling grumpy. We have our own grumpy branch in our classroom. We have shared what makes us feel grumpy and pulled our best grumpy faces.
Theo and James pulled very grumpy faces!
We have also added other words to our branch which we can use instead of grumpy, such as mad or cross.
