Week ending 17 November 2017

This week we had our whole school trip to Beamish museum! This fitted really well with our topics and we looked right through the decades of the 1800’s and 1900’s. At the farm we saw animals and a World War Two kitchen. We met a Victorian dentist in town who told us all about brushing teeth with carbolic soap. We split into groups and some of us learnt about toys through the ages. The other group learnt about life as a World War One soldier and what a soldier would have in the bag! We went down the pit mine which was very dark. The children were relieved to find out that they were a bit young for work in the mine or to go to war just yet but at least they know all about it!

 

We have also prepared our shoeboxes for Children in Distress which have been picked up on Friday. Somehow, we also found the time to start writing our World War One poems and start our circuits for our Christmas Light Decorations.

 

10 November 2017

This week in the junior classroom we have continued with our projects. We have been making our light decorations and have continued learning about World War One. We also practised and performed the poem, Dulce Et Decorum Est in groups taking into consideration the use of language to create emotion and imagery. As part of our topic and to coincide with Remeberance Day, children have been making poppies at home and most are now on our topic display. One pupil made a delicious poppy cake that they shared with all the class! Yum yum! On Friday we  found out what our Christmas performance will be and read out parts to impress the teachers for character selection. Who will play who? Watch this space!

3rd November 2017

We came back to school after half term with a hive of activities. We have been making Christmas lights in D.T./science. Next week we will be building the circuits to create light! We have also been creating charcoal pictures of the Titanic before moving on to World War One and discovering what life was like in the trenches ready for our trip to Beamish next week. We have been creating a display similar to a Victorian household that we will continue to develop as we move through the decades.

13 October 2017

These last couple of weeks have been full of activities in the junior class. We have made elderberry bread and natural tie dye t-shirts in forest schools. In art we have continued to study 19th century Artists. We discussed the life and art of Van Gogh and recreated some of his landscape pieces in oil pastel. We have used our problem solving skills to measure the perimeter of the playground using different tools such as four standard classroom rulers or a trundle wheel. The juniors have enjoyed practising the piece for the harvest festival service at church (no pictures so there are no spoilers) and in topic we have moved on from the Victorians to find out about the Titanic. We have split up the class to find real life stories from 1st, 2nd and 3rd classes of the cruiseliner and we can’t wait to discover more about how the unsinkable ship ended up sinking! As well as our weekly swimming we also had time for a spot of football skills practise in P.E. too!

29th September 2017

In forest school this week we discussed how to safely use tools, cooked cinnamon apples and some of us made nets for safe traps (everything we made was taken down at the end of the session).

 

We did some felt making this week. We all made felt flowers to go on a whole school wall hanging. Hopefully we’ll be able to show you the finished article next week.

 

Gilly came to talk to us about playing the violin. Some of us are thinking about having lessons.

 

Last Friday the Year 5/6 football team played in the tournament at Ryedale. We played a football tournament with 10 teams and played 5 different teams.  It was fun and we came third overall. We won 2 games, drew 1 and lost 2. Everyone had a great time and we played well.

22 September 2017

We have had a busy week in the juniors. We have been writing diaries as Victorian children; creating charcoal portraits of Queen Victoria; making Monet style watercolour paintings and learning how to be safe with electricity.

In maths the year three and four have been learning about place value including playing place value top trumps and creating three and four digit numbers to get the largest or smallest value
