Strudda Bank Farm visit
We have been exploring weighing and predicting which items out of two might be the heaviest, we used lots of classroom items to explore!
After reading the Enormous Turnip we decided to make some vegetable soup together. Mrs Gillies did the cooking as it got very hot and the children worked in pairs to red and order the instructions of how to make soup. Lots of children enjoyed the soup and some asked for more!
This week we went on a walk to Nisa, we wrote shopping lists of items grandma might need in her basket and then went on an investigation to find out how much each item would cost.
We enjoyed joining in with the RSPB bird watch. We made some special bird sandwiches and sat in wait to tick off which birds visited the school yard. We spotted lots of seagulls.
Blowing down the little pigs houses
For Science we have been talking about similarities and differences of different materials, why some houses are easy to blow and some are not. The children made predictions first about whether or not their house would blow down and if so why. “IT IS HEAVY” “IT IS HARD” “ITS TOO LIGHT” “IT IS NOT VERY STRONG ”
This week we have been exploring using charcoal to carry out some observational drawings, it did get a bit messy! We used the new material to draw around items and add details by shading and smudging!
Ginger Bread man Zip line
We were set a task by Mrs Gillies. To get the Gingerbread man across the river by making him a zip line. We were given a range of materials and items to join. The children worked well in their groups and managed to safely transport the Gingerbread man from one side to the other.
Little Red Riding Hood choosing
We have enjoyed our Little Red Riding Hood topic this week, we have been busy carrying out lots of linked activities. We read some very tricky sentences and matched them to the pictures.
Who has been in class 5?
At the start of term we had a mystery to solve, who had made such a big mess in class 5? We looked at the clues and wrote down who we thought had been into class, it turns out is was the Big Bad Wolf!

The children enjoyed using different vegetables to explore colour and shape, some children chose to make prints and others created a picture using particular sizes and shapes for a purpose.
We used the Ipads this week to record our friends carrying out a puppet show. We were great at retelling all of our traditional tales.
We loved taking part in our class wedding at church. We watched Annie and Charlie say their vows and exchange rings, then we had a party in the hall with our Mams and Dads.
As part of this half terms phunky food focus all about healthy breakfasts, we made some porridge together, just like Goldilocks. We talked about healthy and unhealthy breakfast options and learnt why porridge is a super start to the day. I was very proud as everyone had a taste and there were lots of empty bowls!
