Term 2

Week 1

People who help us!

 

This week we thought about all the people who help us in school, at home and in the community. We also practised our story telling skills, using pumpkin houses and we made spiders in webs by weaving paper plates. Outside we watched a sunflower bloom and watched each day to see how big it would grow.

     

 

 

 

 

 

Week 2

The Army

 

This week we looked at The Armed Forces. We continued this by reflecting on the Remembrance day. We made poppy wreaths and watched the CBeebies video about why poppies are significant. 

This week we have also been building outdoors, creating boats and planes. There has been lots of teamwork and use of specialist vocabulary. 

 

  

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crime Scene

 

We walked in on Monday morning to find a table turned over and chairs thrown over the art corner!

There were footprints on the carpet and sweets all over the floor.

We dressed in our police uniforms and used our magnifying glasses and torches to look for clues.

Outside we built police cars and then we tried to find out who made the mess. 

We thought it was Mrs Inglis because she likes sweets, however Seraya said the foot prints were too small.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Judaism

 

As part of our studies on Judaism we looked at The Menorah.

We made our own versions using paint, play dough, coloured pencils.

Harrison made a candle from wooden bricks with a red flame on top.
