We made tangram pictures of Olympic sports today, practising our fine motor skills in 1/2B 🔷🔺🟢
In Y1/2B, we have been practising some of our sketching skills to reveal our Olympic sporting theme. Can you guess from our work? 🔍
As part of our DT project, we designed, made and evaluated our own Olympic medals in Y1/2B. We decided our medals must have the Olympic rings and the goddess of victory, Nike. They should be shiny and durable. They could have a ribbon attached, to wear around the neck. 🏅
Our Science investigation on push and pull forces (in sports) generated the question: How much force will make a ball travel the furthest? 🎾⚽️
In Y1today, children moved along to a familiar song and tapped back a set of beats, using a musical instrument 🎶
Today our Y1 numeracy learning was about sorting objects and preparing to count. Objects can be sorted by their shape, colour and size. We also realised that objects can be sorted by their type. We discovered that when we line our objects up, it makes counting easier.
In KS1, we enjoyed matching 🇫🇷 vocabulary to the correct sporting activity. It was surprising to see some of the words were very similar to our English words for sports!
Our new Y1 children enjoyed collecting scores in our Olympic themed activities yesterday.
What a great way to practise our number skills!
We are always going for gold🏅
It is amazing to see our super confident reading champions taking over at story time! We are enjoying sharing our favourite stories from home 📖
After considering what medicines can include and how they might look, we discussed some real life scenarios and thought about how we would handle the same situation. The children then wrote about what they had learned.
KS1 children in our Keppel house team enjoyed their amazing treat day!
We really enjoyed today’s storyteller reading her favourite book! 📖
We are so lucky to have great readers who like to share their favourite books in Y2!
We love it when we have storytelling volunteers…
As part of our London topic, we had a workshop yesterday to enjoy interactive learning activities about the Great Fire of London. The children did freeze frames, bucket relays and re-enacted various parts of the historical events. It was a fabulous opportunity to apply and embed the learning we have done in class. […]
We had some new readers volunteering for peer story time today 👍🏻😀
Today we discussed substances that may or may not harm our bodies. We thought about how substances may get into our bodies and which ones we know are dangerous ☠️
Today, the children used chalk pastels to create a fire effect by buildings layers of colour and texture. We then created skyline silhouettes from our research of London in 1666.
The children have been practising their French conversation skills this week by making a daily weather report. Each table group took turns to make a weather report video that they would like to share with you… lundi mardi mercredi jeudi vendredi
We went on a hunt around school to identify wild plants.
As part of our topic learning about The Great Fire of London, the children used their interviewing techniques to make a news report video. After carefully thinking about suitable witnesses and questions to ask, they worked as a team to record each other as roving reporters. Here are a couple of examples: Children’s news reporting […]
Feeding the chickens is an absolute joy, although they did get somewhat excited when we opened the gate! Luckily, we had kind assistance from some of the older children and we were able to give them clean water and checked they had plenty of food.
We designed and created a printing block today that allowed us to practise some relief printing in Y2 👍🏻😀
We love working with our Chinese partners as part of an international project. After exchanging ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ stories, we have learned about a traditional Chinese story called ‘The Three Monks.’ We learned the story in English, then the children were really enthusiastic about reading the story in Chinese. Watch our video to see […]
Keep it up 2WB!!
Today we thought about what plants need to grow. We thought of some important scientific questions that we wanted to answer. We got ready to plant a bean using compost. Mrs B is trying to grow a bean on a wet paper towel so that we can compare what happens. Mrs O […]
Don’t forget to continue Beat The Street while you are out and about 😀👍🏻
As part of the Big Pedal competition, today we were celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. The children came to school in Non-Uniform and wore something green to raise awareness on we can do to help the environment. We discussed how the world can change outside of our own windows. #BigPedal2021
Following our science week in school, the children were given a choice of fun experiments to try at home as part of their home learning this week. There were lots of fantastic reactions and it is clear to see that we have some super scientists in 2WB!
