Planting in the polytunnel 

Posted by Administrator Friday, April 28, 2017 4:36:00 PM

We have been weeding the beds in the polytunnel, ready to plant seeds!


More plants! 

Posted by Administrator Friday, April 28, 2017 4:27:00 PM

We have been playing in our role play garden centre


We made a game in maths to help us learn our number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. You have to put the right flowers in to make the number on the pot.



In reading we used non-fiction books to make notes about what the different parts of plants do. Then we used our notes to make posters about them, thinking very carefully about our presentation.



 

Learning about plants 

Posted by Administrator Wednesday, April 26, 2017 2:44:00 PM

This term we are learning about plants.

We drew the daffodils and made a display of our best handwriting of Wordsworth's poem

We have been planting seeds too - so far they are in small pots and we will repot them when they are bigger. We are growing flowers and herbs so far.

Our trip to Ancient Orkney 

Posted by Administrator Friday, March 24, 2017 9:58:00 AM

We went to the Standing Stones of Stenness and the Barnhouse Village - here are some of us in a neolithic bed!

We visited Maes Howe - an ancient Orcadian tomb!

We went to Skara Brae - a neolithic village.

We had a great time comparing Ancient Orkney and Ancient Egypt!

Joseph and his colourful coat

In RME we've been learning about the story of Joseph from the Old Testament. He was taken as a slave into Egypt but ended up saving everyone from the famine!

We have been doing some work with Miss Angier in art, inspired by our topic of Ancient Egypt.

Funky Mummy!

We played the funky mummy maths game - it was fun!

 

Papyrus 

Posted by Administrator Friday, February 03, 2017 3:51:00 PM

We made our own papyrus (it was quite messy!) and when it dried we drew on it. It wasn't as smooth as modern paper.

Ancient Egyptian maths 

Posted by Administrator Wednesday, January 11, 2017 3:08:00 PM

Maths was very important to the Ancient Egyptians. They used symbols for numbers - we had a go at writing some.

We played some of the maths games on this website.

Our new topic - Ancient Egypt  

Posted by Administrator Monday, January 09, 2017 3:56:00 PM

We are learning about Ancient Egypt this term. This is a history topic - about things from a long time ago. We made a timeline which went from the dinosaurs right up to us being born!

The River Nile flows through Egypt and it was very important to the Ancient Egyptians. We are making a River Nile display.

Caroline has loaned us a pyramid and an Ancient Egyptian boat to play with, it's good to play with them to help us learn more about the Ancient Egyptians.
