Castles

We loved our story last term ‘The Princess and the White Bear King’ so much, we have chosen to learn all about Castles this term.  Next week we are off to Tiverton Castle on our learning journey, dressing up as Princesses and Knights.

In Art this term, we are focusing on a painting by Paul Klee called ‘Castle and Sun’. We are focusing colour this term, looking closely at mixing colours and representing emotions using colours.  Keep an eye on our blog for our up-coming painting.

Designing a Fruit Salad for the Princess on her Journey

We have enjoyed being designers this term, focusing on healthy eating.  We have evaluated a variety of fruit salads, tasted a range of fruit, designed and created a fruit salad with the purpose of providing the Princess in our story a healthy and delicious sack.

Check out our photos of our learning journey, we learn’t a lot about hygiene and cutting techniques whilst making our salads.  We are very proud of our final products.

The Great Fire of London

Today we re-enacted the Great Fire of London.  Over the last two weeks we have spent time designing and making a variety of buildings from 1666.  We then burnt them down! To our delight, there was a strong wind today (like there was during the original fire) and everything caught fire very quickly.  We sang London’s Burning as we watched.

What a blaze it was!

Tell me a dragon

Today we went on a dragon egg hunt.  We had so much fun collecting the eggs and were sure to hold them carefully in case they hatched.  Once we were back in class we opened our eggs and discovered describing words that we sounded out in our talking partners.  We then used these adjectives to create a dragon in teams.  Check out the final outcomes.

 

Writing a Biography about Neil Armstrong

From the next two terms, we are learning and writing about Neil Armstrong.  Today, we had to work in teams to put in order a timeline of his events.  We found it a little tricky putting the dates in order but we got there in the end and we now know lots of interesting facts about Neil Armstrong and how to draw timelines.

What facts can you remember?

What is Neil Armstrong known for?

Food Chains

We have had so much fun learning about animals habitats and designing our own food chains.  Here is a picture of our science working wall which is jam-packed with everything we have been learning about.
