Welcome back after Easter! We are looking forward to a short, but fun-filled half term of learning in Class 1. Our new topic is: Amazing Africa!
We read lots of stories, played games and made crafts to learn about democracy, rule of law, tolerance, respect and individual liberty.
Some of our activities:
-Voting using ballot boxes to decide on some key issues in class.
-Discussing and writing class rules.
-Making a respect hat with pictures to indicate how we can show respect to others.
-Playing traditional British games such as elastics with rhymes about the UK.
-Making a handprint picture of all of the values.
Have a look at some of our photos that show some of our activities.
We have been looking at a new story in our English lessons- Handa's Surprise, that is set in Africa. The children have been exploring the different fruits that Handa took to her friend.
As part of our topic work, we have been thinking about what seeds need to grow. We set up an experiment with 5 different pots to check if what we predicted was correct.
Pot 1) Everything we think a seed needs: a seed, compost, water and sunlight.
2) Everything except water.
3) Everything except a seed.
4) Everything except compost.
5) Everything but kept in the dark.
We'll let you know how they get on. We also each planted some seeds to observe and hopefully grow some lettuce plants to bring home.
