Today, Hazelnut teamed up with Beech and Cedar class to venture outside for forest school! Linking to our Science topic, we looked at habitats for bugs. The children were tasked with making habitats for small bugs! The pictures below show some of their creations!

Science

LO: Identify, name and label basic parts of the human body

 

In Science, we have started to look at animals including humans throughout our lessons. We have started looking at the basic parts of the human body including some of our organs. We went outside to draw around ourselves and then label our bodies with basic body parts and organs! 

Geography

LO: To identify the continents of the world and its oceans.

 

Today in Geography, we became continent detectives! First we learnt lots of information about the 7 continents including interesting facts about each of them. After that, we put on our detective hats and used the clues to try and figure out what each continent was and labelled them on our own world maps! 

 

See below for some of the pictures.

Art- 3/11/20

LO: To create shades of colour

In Art, we thought about different colours related to the Great Fire of London and though about how we can change the colour using paint. The children chose a colour and then added a little bit of white each time to make the colour lighter. See the pictures below. 

 

English

LO: To compare past London with present London 

The children had a look at pictures from past London today and compared them with pictures from present London. They then discussed the different between the two times and started to think about things that could have caused the fire to spread so fast. 

PE- Dance

In our PE lessons we have started the dance module. We started to think about different moves that could be related to different aspects of the Great Fire of London. For example we showed fire by waving our arms in the air, and showed the bakery by stirring a pot. Have a look at some of the pictures below to see our dancing! 

 

English

LO: To order events chronologically 

Today we started to look more specifically at the events of the Great Fire. We had some cars with some significant things that happened during the fire on them and then we had to order them chronologically. The class did very well with this! See the pictures below: 

Science

LO: To identify materials and their properties 

Today in Science we started our new topic of Materials. We started to learn about the different materials that things are made from and their properties. After looking at different materials in the classroom we then went on a materials hunt around school to see some of the different materials in use! See the pictures below:
