We have been working on building friendships and co-operation. We went outside to learn some new team games that we can play during break times. We have also been continuing to do our Race to Rio laps, running, jogging and walking for 15 minutes per session.
This week the children have done lots of interesting and active work, learning about the Human Body. In Art, we made our own ‘Funnybones’ skeletons, using artstraws.
We used books and videos to research the skeleton and labelled all the major bones, using the technical names! Watch out for our bones challenge in the next week as well as naming our very own resident skeleton.
We moved on to look at the major organs within our bodies and had lots of fun finding out about where they are and what they do. We then placed them in the correct places using an organ apron.
We then exercised our bodies outdoors, enjoying fresh air and were learning new playground games that the children can use independently on their breaktimes.
We are really enjoying our new topic and are looking forward to sharing our learning at our class assembly on the 11th March.
We have the busiest time this week, immersing ourselves in all things Literacy for Book Week. We have been focusing on Traditional Tales and the children have done lots of Drama using the story box and props to make up their own stories.
As a link to Hansel and Gretel, the children made their own bread and watched how the yeast made the dough rise.
Next up was the Readathon and book swap, which were both a huge success. The class loved exploring all the different books and getting to take a new one home, as well as getting to read with some of the older children.
The children worked hard together in pairs, to create their own touchy – feely books and loved presenting their homework projects to the class. Check out our display outside the class on your way past. Well done everyone!
Last week Room 6 completed their interdisciplinary topic on Burns by having a Burns Supper and Scottish food tasting session.
The children tasted a range of Scottish foods including Haggis, neeps and tatties, tablet, shortbread, oatcakes and smoked salmon all washed down with a wee dram (of Irn Bru). The children recorded which of the foods they enjoyed and those they disliked. There was singing, dancing and a cheers to Robert Burns!
