Forest School 3.4.19

At Forest School today we participated in an obstacle course. It tested our balancing skills, our strength and our resilience. It was so much fun that we even built our own in the forest. We also planted some seeds with one of our adults.

Forest School 27.3.19

At Forest School today we made magic wands. We had to explore to find our favourite stick. Next we decorated it with items that we found in the forest. 

Forest School 20.3.19

At Forest School today we did whittling. We had to be very careful and ensure we moved the blade away from our bodies. Our dens were still there so we also played in those. Some of us built a snail hotel.

6.3.19

Today at forest school we had to work as a team and build a den.

Class 1 went to Sible Hedingham library. We met Karen and Shanaz. Karen read us a story, "Can a penguin ride a bike?" After that we sang a song about penguins. Next we made some penguin bookmarks and polar bears. We had a lovely fun time at the library. We are looking forward to going back again.

Class 1's Special Visitor

Mrs Thomas came to Class 1 today with a very special delivery. It was a package that had arrived all the way from Antarctica. We unwrapped the parcel carefully and inside was a penguin and chick. There was a letter explaining where the penguin had come from and why. Some fishermen had helped them along the way and made sure they had been fed. We named the penguin Sardines and the chick is called Lily.

It is going to be an exciting time as we will be able to take the penguin home for a sleepover. 

 

Snow Slime

Class 1 had a great time making snow slime. We used some PVA glue and some slime juice. We had to mix it really well to combine the ingredients. We played with the slime for a while. We were able to take our slime home at the end of the day. 

Ice Cube Painting

Class 1 have been learning about freezing and melting. We also talked about solids and liquids. We discussed what might make a liquid freeze and also how might you melt the resulting product. Next we put some food colouring in ice cube trays and put them in the freezer. We used them along with our tongs as they were pretty cold to paint some very creative designs.

Measuring using non-standard units of measurement

Class 1 have been working on measurement. We have been discussing long, short, longer than, shorter than the same length as, tall, small, short, taller than, shorter than, same 

height as and comparing more than 3 objects and items to say which is the longest, 

smallest, shortest and tallest. We have been using cubes, paper clips, pencils etc to 

measure objects in and around our classroom. We also used body parts e.g. our 

handprints, which is called a span and our footprints.It was great fun. We also measured one another using various items like rulers and blocks. Here are some of the photos of our activities.

Jack Frost! What have you done?

Class 1 received a letter today from Jack Frost. Poor Jack Frost had accidentally frozen our polar animals and hidden them. We had to try and find them and rescue them. We had to figure out how we could release them from the ice. Firstly we used lollipop sticks to try and break through the ice. Next we used some spoons. After that one of the children suggested we get some hot water as that would help melt the ice. Ms Harris discovered that Jack Frost had left some magic powder that might help  melt the ice. We all said Abracadabra and put a bit on the ice blocks. They began to melt more quickly with the magic powder and some hot water. We recused all our animals!

Class 1 read the story Jack and the Beanstalk. We decided to try and grow some beans. Here we are planting them. Have a look at how much our beanstalks grew. We had to water them and make sure they had enough sunlight.

We were also very lucky and went to see the pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk. It was great fun. We really enjoyed it.

Class 1 went on a very exciting trip to Colchester Zoo. When we arrived we walked around the zoo and saw lots of animals. Next we met an elf called Buster. Buster had lost the magic dust that helps the reindeer to fly and he needed our help to find it. Buster thought that penguins might be a good substitute but after asking the fact book that he borrowed from the Elf library and with our help, he soon discovered that penguins can't fly and they live too far away from the North Pole. Next we met some penguins. They were very well behaved and ate a lot of fish. But they couldn't help Buster.

We met Father Christmas and Buster discovered that Father Christmas had the magic dust in his pocket all the time. Father Christmas gave us a little gift each to take home.

After that we went to feed the giraffes. Some of us got to feed her but because it was raining they had to taker her inside as she was becoming very upset. We had a great day. We were very tired after all our walking.

Harvest Time

Class 1 have been busy again. Today we discussed Harvest Time and what it means. We looked at various crops that farmers harvest. We also talked about those that are not as lucky as we are. We have also donated food to our local food bank. We are celebrating Harvest on Friday in our church. After the Harvest Festival we will have a Harvest Cafe in our school hall. We have made Rice Krispie Cakes for the Harvest Cafe. Once all the cake holders were filled we were allowed to have some of the mixture. Yum!

Nature Walk - 17th October 2018

Today Class 1 went on a nature walk. We have been learning about our 5 senses. We had to listen carefully to the sounds we heard outside and decide were they loud or soft sounds. We had to look around us and notice things that we saw. we touched lots of items and described their texture. We also had to notice the smells in our outdoor school area. Finally we picked a tree of our choice and did a bark rubbing.

Planting Daffodils

Class 1 planted some daffodil bulbs today. We had some very special helpers in our class today to help us with this task. First we had to put some soil in. Next we put the bulb in and had to make sure we put it the right way. After that we covered it with soil. Finally we watered it and hung it in it's special pot on our outdoor fence.

We will have to care for them until they begin to grow next Spring.
