Coral

Welcome to Coral Class!

Welcome back.  I hope everyone had a lovely Summer break.  I have already heard about lots of exciting and fun filled summer holidays.

 

This term our topic question is  'Why were the Romans so powerful and what did we learn from them?'   Attached is a copy of the autumn newsletter and curriculum map. In addition questions the children generated on transition day about what they would like to learn and find about.  We are set for an exciting term ahead - full of fun learning! 

 

The children have already come back with an enthusiastic attitude to their learning and we have enjoyed some exciting team building challenges and thoughtful discussions, which is fantastic.

 

As the term progresses I will keep you updated regularly.

 

 

Science - Forces Investigation

Today in Science we investigated the effect of boat shape on water resistance. We also explored the effects of fresh water and salty water on water resistance.  We planned, predicted and carried out our own investigation and then explained and reasoned why things happened.

Art with Mrs Mc.Douall

ART WEEK.

During art week in Coral we did lots of varied, interesting and exciting art activities.  These included learning about the history of art and mark making, creating charcoal owl pictures, drawing mandalas, making tissue paper butterflies, sculpting clay tortoises and detailed sketching from close up photographs we had taken.  Take a look at the phots below.

Coral class had a fantastic day at Chesil Beach today learning about the beach formation and the ecology of the area.  We also completed a scavenger hunt which included finding a mermaid's purse, which proved quite tricky at this time of year, and we helped to clean the beach with a litter pick to remove unwanted rubbish particularly plastic.  A great day was had by all!

Exploring how the Digestive System works.

If you are wondering how these photos explain how the digestive system works, ask a child in Coral to explain!

AUSTRALIA DAY - 26th January.

In Coral we actually celebrated Australia Day a day early.  We learnt about why Australians celebrate this date and what they do. We baked Anzac Biscuits and chocolate coated lamingtons, as well as making origami Koalas and a range of other activities.  Just like the Australians we had great fun, however the weather was not as favourable!!!
