Class F2 & Y1C

 

Spring Term 2018

Welcome back!  

We will be starting this half term with an exciting investigation day with a ‘What makes the best Toy?’ theme. The children will be participating it lots of exciting investigations and hands on construction.

This term we will also be celebrating science week, where the children will enjoy lots of messy experiments and learn about bugs and minibeasts.

 

We’ll go on bug hunts is the school Wild Area, search for these minibeasts, hiding in darkened nooks and crevices. Can we count their legs & wings? Can we classify, draw and make them?

We will be taking part in lots of exciting activities such as; baking, sewing, creative activities, retelling stories in our outdoor woodland area and taking part in many creative activities all planned around children's interests. We will also be inviting you to a parent’s assembly where the children will share their current learning and achievements.  

Our home school links continue to be extremely strong! All of our parents are working with their child on their set targets and providing us with information regarding their child's achievements’ through their 'home work' books and home learning Celebration displays.

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 Tuesday morning 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.  

We have an open door policy, if you wish to speak to us about anything then please do not hesitate to contact us. Please feel free to leave a comment for us at the bottom our page, where it will be gratefully received, thank you.

Any support, access to books, the internet and trips out will greatly enhance your child’s learning experience and engagement in the topics.  All seven areas of learning will be covered using this term's themes and following the children’s interests.

ICE

 Our Children investigated water as a liquid and a solid and found that this experiment is reversible in our Science lesson.

They used salt, sugar, warm water and cold water to see which melted the ice the quickest.

Some children used frozen water, salt and watercolours to create a rainbow. Understanding that salt can cause crevices in the ice and painting on watercolours that ran through the block of ice where the salt had melted it.

We used coloured ice cubes and mixed together two colours and to try to predict what colour the two together would create.

How can we release ‘frozen toys’ from containers? The children used warm water and different tools to release the toy from their ice tombs to see which was the most effective.

As you can see, the children had lots of fun with this experiments
