This week we have continued with our maths topic on measuring but we have been investigating capacity. We had to use measuring jugs to find out how much of each colour water we had.
In topic and art, we made some amazing sarcophagi out of clay and decorated them so that they were fit for a king! Or a pharaoh.
It was another creative week in Foxes Class this week. We have been learning all about measuring length in maths. To help us with our learning we measured our feet and our arms and then we measured our jumping skills.
In science we recreated the digestion process and made our very own version of poo. It was great fun even if it was a bit disgusting!
The children have been hard with Mrs Lakin in Spanish over the last few weeks. They have made their own pinatas and this week they got to get some sweets out of them.
We have had a very creative week this week in the Foxes Class.
In topic we were learning all out the mummification process used by the ancient Egyptians and what better way to help us learn that to wrap each other up as real life mummies! We also learnt about what the ancient Egyptian's used to eat and made some delicious date balls.
In science, we continued to learn about the human digestive system and used play doh as a tool to make a model.
It has been a great first week back after the half term holiday for Foxes Class. We have jumped straight into out new topic on Ancient Egypt.
The children took part in an archaeological dig to find some Egyptian artifacts and then they all become professors and taught the other children about the artifact that they found.
We had some very tricky words to learn like sarcophagus and Tutankhamun.
Wow! What a great end to the half-term we have had in the Foxes Class.
We had a lovely time taking part in a Hindu workshop on Monday where Chantelle enjoyed becoming an Indian princess.
Tuesday was was our trip to Sherwood Forest which saw all of the children showing just how much they have developed in the area of orienteering this half-term. In the afternoon the children displayed super team work skills to build houses for the different animals that live in the forest and we even had a class photo in front of the famous Major Oak. A big well done to Billie-Jo on this day as she stayed with the class for her first full day! How fantastic.
Enjoy your half-term break.
Wow! The Foxes Class have been working so hard in their science lessons this half term. We have learned all about solids, liquids and gases. The children were great scientists when we were investigating how to melt chocolate and were fascinated when we investigate how water changes from a solid to a liquid, a liquid to a gas and back again. It was fantastic to hear the conversations that the children were having about what they could see.
On Friday we went to Morven Park to continue to develop our orienteering skills. The children had such a positive attitude and it was very impressed with their resilience particularly Lewis who had a break half way through but still managed to find all of the letters.
Hello and welcome to our Autumn term in Foxes Class.
We have had such a fantastic start to the year. The children have settled extremely well and are already showing me that they are very interested in our topic this half term which is 'Rainforests'.
The children really enjoyed trying lots of tropical fruits in cooking and have been showing me their amazing number skills.
Next week we are hoping to make some rainforest boxes so if you have got a spare shoe box at home, it would be wonderful if you could send it in. Thank you to those parents who have already done so.
