Swordfish

You may have heard from your child that we have been writing letters to The Prime Minister about the plastic pollution in our oceans. Well, today there was much excitement as we received a letter from 10 Downing Street! I thought you might like to read the response.

We've had some fun this past week beginning our Under The Sea topic. We have been reading 'The Real Boat' and we wanted to see if we could make a paper boat that would make it to the ocean! Here are some photos of what happened.

Below is a link to Starfish page where the songs for our Christmas Play are.

It was so good to see so many parents at our Class Assembly, we hope you enjoyed it. The children enjoyed sharing their work with you all.

We have also been creating some animations of a plant's life cycle - which were unfortunately not ready for today's assembly.  However most have been finished now and the children were keen to share them with you - so here they are.

This is Rafe's, Algy, Jonathan, Nancy, Monty and Bet's.

We have a fab day at Hidden Woods. I hope that the children are full of memories. Mind you some may be very tired - we had a few nappers on the coach on the way home. We have been den building, cooking in the mud kitchen, excavating a mud pit, making clay models, rope climbing and toasting marshmallows - to name just a few of the activities on offer.  
In Swordfish class we have been growing beans in order to try and found out how Jack grew such a tall beanstalk. We grew them in plastic bags so we could see exactly what happened to the beans. We needed to replant them into pots as they were bursting out of the bags. We have now taken them home to see how tall we can grow them.

Happy New Year! We hope you have had a good Christmas break. This term our topic is ‘How did the beanstalk grow so big?’- a Giant appears to have visited our classroom over the holidays! We will be growing lots of plants this term and will get to know the story of Jack and The Beanstalk really well. Here is a copy of our Curriculum map and parents letter for this term.

On Wednesday the children were greeted by some enormous footprints all over the classroom. This generated lots of questions and the children were excited to find out more. We spent some time trying to work out how tall the giant was using his footprints. There were some fantastic ideas following and lots of measuring involved.  As a class we think he is probably between 2 1/2 and 3 metres tall. We look forward to seeing what else the giant does.

 On Wednesday 8th June Freya's mum came to talk to us about her job as a portrait painter. She has painted the Queen and told us about her visits to Buckingham Palace. She also told us how she paints her portraits using correct proportions and how she adds details.
