Home Learning- Pirate Creative Ideas

posted 6 Sep 2017, 11:22 by Rachel Gilbert   [ updated 6 Sep 2017, 11:23 ]

It would be great for the children to continue their topic learning at home, and then bring in their work to share with us.

Some ideas for this half term are:-

  • to create a treasure map
  • to make a treasure chest &/or treasure
  • to make a telescope
  • to draw Captain Hook and write a description of him- remember to use lots of expanded noun phrases!

We look forward to seeing your work in class!

Science Week

posted 14 Mar 2017, 09:24 by Rachel Gilbert

During Science Week we have been looking and at shadows and we have started making glow in the dark jars linked to our key text 'The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark.'

We are also looking at the importance of healthy eating, exercise and hygiene linked to our Florence Nightingale topic work.

If your child would like to keep a food diary this week a template will be sent out as extra homework.


World Book Day

posted 2 Mar 2017, 12:06 by Rachel Gilbert

Class Sheffield looked fantastic today dressed as book characters. We have focused on the book 'The Day the Crayons Quit.' We pretended to be different coloured crayons & we wrote letters to Duncan telling him why we quit. In maths we measured different colouring tools and put our results into a bar chart. A fun day had by all!

See some of our costumes on the photos below:

This half term we have really enjoyed learning about different habitats.

This week we are looking at Peru (Paddington Bear's home) where we will be finding out what other animals live there and how they are adapted to their environment.

Challenge- choose a plant or animal from the picture to describe and say how they are adapted to life in the Rainforest.
