This morning, Topaz class had a lovely peaceful session in the wildlife area creating Nature Pictures. They worked brilliantly together and produced fantastic pictures despite the heavy downpour of rain !
This afternoon, Onyx class investigated how light travels. They shone a torch through a series of holes in squares of card, and the light shone onto the end target. They found that when they moved a piece of card from the line, the light carried on travelling through the remaining holes to the target, but didn’t change direction to go through the moved hole.
Conclusion: LIGHT TRAVELS IN STRAIGHT LINES! 🔦
Today we took the time to sit back and reflect! We lay down on the field looking at the clouds and finding the shapes they made. We also took the time to listen to the sounds of nature- we learnt that there are lots of noises around us when we really begin to listen!!
Have you ever spotted animals and objects in the clouds? Onyx class did today! Yoda, a Minion and a dog chewing a bone were just some of the crazy images we saw for our first activity in Mental Health Awareness week. We can’t wait to see what else we can get up to with nature this week! 🌸🍀🪵🍄🦔🕸🐛🐞
Well done for guessing 2 out of 3 of the secret pictures in last week’s blog! The answers were: red ball point pen, space down the radiator and the impossible picture… pages in a book.
Last three secret picture teasers. Clue: All of them are food !!
Good luck !!

The Design and Technology and History brief was set: to make an outfit or item of clothing showing different trends/styles or colours from at least 3 different decades…. could they do it?!? Of course they could! 🥰
After spending weeks investigating different fashions and designing our own, it was time to get the needle and thread, scissors and material out. The children all did brilliantly, we made our own templates and some even started joining their pieces! 🥳🥳
Stay tuned for updates! 🤩
Today in Maths we have been learning how to share amounts into equal groups. The children had to work in pairs to share different amounts of cubes into groups of 2, 5 and 10. Tomorrow we are going to move on from cubes and instead use drawings to help us.
Well done Emerald Class!
Diamond class LOVE patterns!
Today, to celebrate the start of children’s mental health week we took advantage of the good weather and went outside to make our very own nature inspired jewellery!
