Class 1W

Summer Term 2018

Hop on board a big, red bus and head for England’s capital. Yes, that’s right, we’re on our way to London!

This half term, we’ll take tea with the Queen and visit Buckingham Palace online. Using maps and research, we’ll locate Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time to the Great Fire of London and to famous London landmarks, as well as giving us an understanding of what it’s like to live in a big city. We’ll Skype a school in a city far away, write adventure stories, take a virtual trip to London Zoo and make souvenirs for tourists.

At the end of our project, we’ll share our skills and knowledge with you. Our class will tell well-known stories about London, make a stop-motion animation and share traditional British songs and nursery rhymes.

 

Our Whole School ‘In it To Win It’ challenge for the children who are; reading at least if not more than 5 times a week and is recorded in their reading records by an adult, homework is handed in on a Thursday and have their PE Kit in school for our PE session, those children will gain a raffle ticket each week they accomplished these for a chance to win a prize, so please keep reading and supporting your child at home.

Scawthorpe Library

 

On Tuesday 27th February 1W had their first visit to Scawthorpe Library. They enjoyed listening to 'Oi Frog' by Kes Grey and Jim Field - they were great at guessing the rhyming words. They all choose a book to take home. I'm looking forward to our next visit, hopefully it won't be snowing this time. 

 

1W's Dinosaur Parade

 

For their February Home Learning project the children created these fantastic dinosaur masks and hats . I think they all did an amazing job. Thank you for supporting your child in their learning and spending the time creating these master pieces. 

 

Dinosaur Planet - Memorable Experience

When we returned to school after the Christmas holidays we found a strange item in our classroom - a very large egg. we spent the morning investigating the egg and taking part in an archaeological dig. We soon discovered that out Imaginative Learning Project was dinosaurs. We all became palaeontologists and learnt that we needed to be very gentle and patient to discover what was hidden under the sand. 

Making Christmas Chocolates

 

Investigating Shadows

 

The children worked together in small groups to investigate how to make shadows larger and smaller. 

They found that shadows get bigger when an object is close to the light source and get smaller when an object is far away from the light source. 

 

Animal Habitats

 

The children's October Half Term Home Learning Project was to research an animal and create its habitat in a shoe box. All the children did a fantastic job.

Parents' Craft Afternoon

 

On Friday 20th October we were joined in the afternoon by the children's parents for a craft afternoon. The children and parents made owl masks and pine cone owls as part of our Imaginative Learning Project The Enchanted Woodland.
