Spring 1

We have had another fantastic half-term of learning!  Our topic was all about journeys!  Our class half term book was 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers.


We started this topic off by trying to solve a mystery... we had a special delivery arrive in a box.  There were some clues that we needed to solve which were frozen in ice!  We had to work together to melt the ice to read the clues!  Eventually, we worked out that there a penguin in the box who had come to join our class! 






To celebrate our special story, we welcomed the parents in for our book event!  We read the story with them and then did lots of activities based around the book, including combining 2D shapes to make a penguin, making a 3D penguin and creating a penguin out of grapes, cheese and carrots!






In History, we learned all about Christopher Columbus and the journey that he famously made.  We made timelines about his life.




As part of our Computing, we made animated stories.  We did this using a program called 2Create on Purple Mash.  We created animal characters and then learned how to make them move in different ways.




Finally, in DT, we created vehicles to go on our own journeys with.  We began by looking at and testing a range of different materials to use for the wheels, chassis and axis.  Then we designed and made our vehicles and finally evaluated its effectiveness!  Look how proud we are of what we achieved!






We had a special treat in January... Jazz Labs came to visit us!  They played some improvised jazz music for us first of all.  Then we helped them to create a musical story about travelling through the arctic, using their instruments.  We had lots of fun creating the story and dancing along to the beat.
