On 23rd February, we had a visit from Marsha from Network Rail who taught up so much about the railway. We learnt that trains travel at a phenomenal 125mph! We also learnt that a train weighs 400 tonnes and that they take 1 and a quarter miles to be able to stop. We discussed the importance of crossing a railway line safely, paying attention to the signals close to the railway line.
Look how fabulous our Mars Rovers are! We worked so hard on these and they look so wonderful! Let’s hope they are ready for exploring.
In Robins class, we have shown how amazing we are at being engineers when we were building our Mars Rovers. We had to think carefully about how we could attach them so they looked exactly how we had planned. What do you think to our building skills?
We have been learning all about the skeleton and the purpose of some of the bones within our skeleton. We then moved onto animal skeletons - we matched animals to their skeletons, we matched types of animals to their descriptions and we labelled different animals! We are super scientists.
5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Blast Off!
On Monday 22nd January, we had some very special visitors! Kenn and Iain from OpenBox Theatre Company came in to teach us all about Space! We loved sharing our knowledge with them as well as finding out even more about the mission to the Moon.
You will be pleased to hear that we are now fully qualified Space Cadets!
A Very Important Visitor...
We were very lucky this half term because we were visited by Father Christmas!
He came and we shared with him about our Christmas Jumpers (as we were wearing them that day as well!) and he gave us all a little gift.
We were very lucky!
Shh... The Performance is about to start!
We felt so lucky to be able to go and watch the KS1 Nativity inspired by the Jolly Postman.
We thought they were so fantastic and we were so proud of them.
We have been using our careful observation skills to look at the properties of soil. We could identify some key similarities and differences between each type of soil!
Angels, Angels Everywhere!
In our RE learning, we had been learning all about Angels so Miss Smith set us a secret mission! We had to go to the church and find as many Angels as possible - Mrs Stanley could barely keep up with the number of angels we were finding. Look how many we found!
Wow! Look at our Angels!
We thought about angels and we had to draw what we imagined. When you think of an angel, does it look anything like we have drawn?
Sunning it up in Robins!
During our English lesson on 1st November, we were told to relax and get comfy. Miss Smith told us that we needed to use our listening ears, we had to close our eyes so we could imagine things based on what we heard.
We listened to sounds and shared the scene we could imagine. George imagined white cliffs, whereas Tommy could see a shipwreck in a storm.
Look how serene we look!
We have been thoroughly enjoying our football lessons with Mr Sparrow. We have learnt lots of skills and have been applying these within football matches!
