Around The Classes

Class 3S Go Wild

We are studying The Tiger Child by Joanna Troughton, the children have loved researching these amazing creatures and have appreciated their beauty by completing a project of their choice:

For example, some children have made

  • A picture, painting or collage
  • A fact file: poster or PowerPoint
  • A model making activity: clay or other medium
  • A cake or even biscuits! 

We have created a fantastic display which you will be able to see at the next Open Corridors!

Class 1E Measurement In Maths

How big is a squid’s eye? How small is a dwarf goby? How long is an anteater's tongue?  

Class 1E discovered answers to lots of these questions about the size of some of the largest and smallest animals in the world as part of an introduction to measuring using centimetres and metres.

Great investigation skills, comparative discussion and understanding of the importance of accuracy when measuring.

In case you are interested, the answers are:

  • Squid eye = 30cm
  • Dwarf goby = 1 cm
  • Anteater's tongue = 60cm

Class 2W Science – Material Choices

This week in Science Class 2W have been investigating different materials to find out which would be best for making a tent.  They looked at creating and building structures which would be strong, flexible, secure and stopping the tent from falling over or blowing away.  They also looked at which materials would be strong, waterproof and flexible for the cover so that they would have a safe and secure shelter where they would stay warm and dry.

Class 5F Egyptian Homework Projects

For their history homework last half term, Class 5F worked on an Egyptian project of their choice. This open learning activity really allows the children's creativity to flow and lets them explore aspects of the topic which they are particularly interested in. There were some wonderful creations which the children enjoyed sharing with their class mates.
