Autumn 2019 Classroom Chronicle

Children in Need

We had great fun taking part in creative enterprise activities to raise money for Children in Need!  Safety pin bracelets, Pudsey keyrings, bookmarks, yummy cakes and biscuits were all sold to members of the community who ventured out on a wet Friday morning to enjoy our stalls!  We also got to come to school in our pyjamas which was cool smiley!

Reading with Class 1

Class 2 love to read with the children in class one, asking them questions about the story and helping with tricky words.

History Detectives

We had great fun searching the classroom for clues to find out how they set up the city of Baghdad in AD 762.  Once we had found all of the clues, we used our notes to draw maps of the city as it would have been.

Science : String Telephones 

Our topic in Science is sound we have been investigating how sound travels and we created, using a range of materials, our own string telephones. Can you guess which made the best sound? 

Art: Claude Monet 

We have been learning to sketch and paint in the style of Claude Monet. We focused our work on Claude Monet's Thames image and then we recreated our own!

 

Rivers

To consolidate our learning on the key features of rivers and river systems we made and labelled 3D models.  

Spelling

This document has some fun ideas for you to practise your spelling words at home!

Spring 2019

Class 2 had an awesome time at Harlow Carr den building, creating natural art and learning about seeds!

Active spelling! The children learn their spellings in a variety of ways. Some of these include foamy spellings, colourful words, speed spellings, pyramid spellings and colourful vowels!

Woodland fun at Burnt Yates school: Class 2 enjoyed collecting Autumn resources for their Autumn leaf art. We then created owl, deer and squirrel images using natural resources.

Anya and Amelia's Collective Worship: The Y6 girls led their own collective worship focusing on our current school value 'Hope'. 

Fire Safety: The fire service came to talk to the children about Fire Safety and much to their excitement they got to sit in the engine and learn about the equipment that they use.

Science: The Y3 and Y4 children continued their learning on magnetism by investigating which coins were magnetic. We were really surprised to see that 5 pence pieces before 2011 weren't magnetic as they were made out of cupronickel whereas now they are made out of nickel plated steel and were very magnetic! The pictures show which coins were and weren't magnetic!

ScienceThis term the Y3 and Y4 children have been exploring magnetism, they have investigated how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others.
