We had some super enthusiastic crafters in the club today who loved making Autumn trees using cotton buds to print. They created some lovely art work! Well done everyone!
When introducing this term’s topic a few weeks ago, the Year 2 children shared lots of their own fantastic ideas about what they would like to learn about. Some children said that they would like to find out about different animals such as owls, foxes and hedgehogs. Today, the children enjoyed using the Arkive website to research these woodland animals. They were interested to learn about lots of other woodland animals too, including voles, stoats and badgers. The children are eager to continue their research tomorrow!
Today the Year 2 children enjoyed using Lego Education Simple Machines kits to create moving Lego scarecrows. The children were set a challenge: make a scarecrow that looks scary and has at least one type of movement to scare the birds away. The children enjoyed investigating gears and talked in detail about their designs. It was great to watch the problem solve, work collaboratively and improve their designs after testing them. Gwaith gwych!
Year 4 had a great afternoon working on projects to build and code using the LEGO WeDo 2.0 kits. They made fans, alarm robots and other weird and wonderful creations!
They worked brilliantly together, problem solving and keeping their kits in working order – da iawn blwyddyn pedwar!
In maths, we have been practising our counting skills and matching objects/pictures to a number. We have played lots of different superhero games to support this. Great work Year 1.
We have been busy practising some tricky spelling words in Year 1 using cotton buds and paint!
This week, we read the story ‘Eliot Midnight Superhero’ and thought about what powers we would all have if we were superheroes. The children then had to use their ‘superpowers’ to problem solve and work as a team to rescue the superheroes from the ice.
We have also been busy developing our fine motor skills by measuring the superheroes using spaghetti and cheerios! To support our counting skills that we have been practising in maths this week, we then had to count how many cheerios tall each superhero is.
Our first Welly Wednesday has caused a bit of a stir! We have been on a Bear Hunt!
The Nursery and Reception Children listened to the story performed by Michael Rosen and joined in….. Then the challenge was set! We needed to complete the morning challenges to become ‘Real Investigators’ ready for the big outdoor hunt next week.
Mrs Griffiths has lost her favourite bear, and needs the help of reception and nursery to find him…. I hope we have luck!
Reception have looked at the features on their faces, and have discussed if we are all the same or are we all different.
We have had some really lovely suggestions, the children have created some faces of their own using the computer to help them.
We used Plickers during our Welsh drilling session in Year 5 today. Children were given multiple choice questions in welsh and had to answer them using their Plickers cards. This gives pupils confidence as no other child can see their answers as everyone has a unique Plicker shape! Joio iawn!🏴
