We have been very busy in Buccaneers this term, I have not had time to put photos up of all the fantastic things the children have been doing, so here we go...
Key Stage 1 Summer Concert
Soggy Forest School
It was a tad wet on Monday but the children didn't let it stop them having fun.
They loved hammering out patterns to make tin can lanterns and the new trapeze was very popular for swinging around on. The pond was bustling with life, with tadpoles, frogs and a water louse being spotted and identified by the children.
We came together for quesadillas around the campfire, a song and a game of camouflage.
In geography this term we are learning about the four countries of the United Kingdom.
We have been thinking about our capital city, why it is important, who lives there and some of the famous buildings. Children have worked in groups to construct models of some of the buildings. Year 1 used the internet to look at aerial views and plot on our map where each of the buildings would be. We all decided London looked very crowded.
In science we have been thinking about the changing seasons and weather. We have made seasons pictures which are being displayed in our cloakroom so please come and have a look. This week we enjoyed going outside in the sunshine to play shadow tag then draw around our shadows. We talked about how shadows are made and why we don’t have shadows at night, as well as the best time of year to make shadows.
Later on foundation children made shadow puppets whilst Year 1 began their weather record. We will be using wind socks, thermometers and a rain gauge to record the weather all week.
You can help at home by talking about changes in season and the weather, especially how day length varies in the winter and summer.
