A trip to Weston – super – Mare!

We visited the seaside town of Weston to learn about the history and life of the people who live there. We visited the Weston Museum and got to step back in time, we all got dressed up to add ourselves to a portrait. We also has some time on the beach, building sandcastles and playing. It was a lovely day and we were very lucky with the weather!

 

A visit from the dentist!

Stream Class were visited by the dentist, who reminded us of why it is important to look after our teeth. We had a quiz at the end and had remembered many facts.

 

 

Science afternoon – habitats!

Stream Class were lucky enough to have a visit from Amber and her very special animals. We were introduced to Hector the rabbit, Freda the frog, Barry the bearded dragon and Sally the corn snake.  We learnt about the different habitats that these animals live in when in the wild. We were allowed to handle the animals and really enjoyed learning about them!

 

 

Awareness of ocean pollution.

As part of our topic, ‘Oceans and Seas’, we have been learning about how badly our oceans can be affected by the poor choices of humans and the impact it can have on the environment. We decided that we would like to make a giant fish and fill it up with plastic; this is a visual representation of how much plastic is harming our oceans today. We made the fish from chicken wire and have been bringing in plastic from home to fill it up.

WE ARE ALL HISTORIANS! 

Museum afternoon…

We wanted to share our learning with our families and were museum tour guides for the afternoon! We guided our guests around our boat, the SS Great Britain and taught them many facts about Bristol, Brunel, sailors and transport. We made information leaflets to share with our guests, which they could take away with them. We finished with a quiz to test our families’ knowledge of our topic!

 

Engineering at The Pig…

We had a trip to The Pig to help them design something that the gardeners could use when it is raining to collect in their fruits and vegetables. We designed machines with conveyor belts, wind powered machines and machines that not only collected in the produce but also planted new seeds!

The staff at The Pig all loved our designs! 

 

Science day…

We experimented with different materials to work out which would be best to use to make nose warmers for Santa’s reindeers. We used bottles filled with warm water and wrapped them in a variety of materials, such as tin foil, wrapping paper and tissue. We checked the temperature of the bottles in ten-minute intervals. We recorded our findings in a table and we concluded that tin foil was the best material to use to retain heat.

 

Music…

In music this term we have been learning about the different sections of an orchestra, we created listening maps of music from the Carnival of the Animals by Saint Saens. We listened to and identified the different instruments that were playing and then created soundscapes of our own that used different parts of the orchestra.

 

HONKY TONKY DONKEY!

We worked incredibly hard on our Nativity this year, learning lines, songs and dances to perform at the village hall for our families. It was a huge success!

Important information:

  • Children must come to school wearing their PE kit. Regular PE sessions for Year 1/2 are: Wednesday afternoon. 

  • Homework this term has a strong focus on reading / phonics and comprehension skills. You should have received a letter sharing some great ways to extend the use of the book your child is reading from school. Please remember to also tick the sheet at the back of your child's reading record to indicate how many times they have read that week.

  • Children's book bags may not be checked every day, so please remind your child to hand any letters / messages to myself or the office.

  • Reading - Year 1 and Year 2 books will both be changed on a Tuesday and a Thursday - due to the current situation we are unable to give out extra books during the week, the letter that has been sent home with further suggestions should extend the use of your child's reading book. 

  • Spellings - every child has a set of spellings that build up to a collection of key words.  Once they can spell all the words in the collection correctly, confidently and independently they will be awarded their spelling badge.

If you have any further questions please come in to see me or send a message in the home school diary.  Miss Moore
