Andy Goldsworthy Art
As always our Pet Days have been a great success.
The year 1 parents and children have enjoyed seeing some gorgeous animals including stick insects, dogs, cats, chicks, snakes, chickens, a hamster and a tortoise.
We can all tell you which animals are warm blooded or cold blooded.
We know about carnivores, omnivores and herbivores!
We also know some dogs with funny tastes! Who can remember who likes to eat carrots? cucumbers?
Thanks also to Katie who came to draw our animals with us this afternoon. What a treat.
Thanks to all of you who came to make this such as special and informative couple of days.
MILESTONES MUSEUM TRIP
We had a brilliant time at the Milestones Museum on Wednesday. The children learnt all about toys and games from the past, comparing them to those of more modern times.
Work Sharing Afternoon!
Thanks so much to the mums, dads, grandmas, aunties, brothers, sisters and friends who came to share our super Year 1 work this afternoon.
It was lovely to see how impressed you were with the quality and quantity of our work.
We are very proud of our wonderful books.
Wonderful day at Testwood Lakes!
Thanks so much to the helping parents who made this day so fabulous!
We started by pond dipping and identifying creatures in the little pond. We caught some scary dragonfly larvae and lots of water-boatmen.
Then we pond dipped in the big pond and all caught LOTS of tadpoles!! It was brilliant! Some even had little legs.
After lunch we looked at and compared skulls of various carnivores, omnivores and herbivores.
Then we went into the woods.
In the woods it was much cooler. We caught lots of bugs and looked carefully at their structure. We had to identify them and scoop them into the sorting trays.
To finish, we made some incredible sculptures from sticks. Some of us are very creative.
Thanks everyone for a wonderful day.
We have been learning about lifecycles in our science lessons. We watched each caterpillar turn into a chrysalis and then out came these beautiful butterflies.
We waited for the sun to come out on Friday and released the butterflies into the courtyard which is full of flowers.
The butterflies were friendly - lots of us got to hold them gently.
When we let them go, they flew to the gorgeous flowers to drink the nectar.
Wishing you all a very happy Easter!
Butterflies set free!
We had a fun afternoon today making our Moon Buggies!
Last week we designed them and today we made them from junk.
Some of us even cut with a saw!
Our wheels move round and we decorated out buggies to make them beautiful.
Thanks so much to the parents who came to help us cut, stick, saw, make holes and have a wonderful creative afternoon!
What a fun day we had at Winchester Science Centre, taking part in lots of hands-on activities to help our learning about science and space. We also loved the spectacular show in the planetarium.
World Book Day - Year 5 brought a favourite book to share with us
Trip to the Winchester Science Centre
We will be starting our new topic 'Explorers' in the first week of term. This will include learning about Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong.
To support the children's learning about space exploration, we have planned a visit to the Winchester Science Centre on Tuesday 12th March.
Letters will be coming home in book bags soon.
This half term we have been practising our colour mixing.
Today we mixed our own hot or cold colours.
Didn't we do a great job!?
We were so careful to hold our brushes properly and to mix the colours we wanted.
We are very proud of our fabulous paintings.
Thanks v v v much to Katie who helped in class today!
And apologies to any mums of children that came home a bit painty. We did wear aprons.... Sorry.
Have a wonderful half term.
Hot and Cold Places ART
We had a super day at Marwell today.
We started with a workshop in the Education Centre. We learnt about different habitats and the animals that live there.
Ask us who lives at the North Pole?
What special characteristics do these animals have? Why?
We also learnt about the African Savannah and the Rainforest.
We all stroked a hissing cockroach from Madagascar!
Then we walked to the 7 giraffes.
After lunch we went to the Meerkat talk.
Kim told us all about meerkats and we asked her lots of questions.
We compared the Golden Mongooses with the Meerkats.
We walked out past the amazing Snow Leopards - they were active today and one tried to knock it's friend off the perch.
The rain started as we got onto the coach!
What a fabulous day.
Thank you so much to the wonderful parent helpers - we loved having you with us.
In art this week we have been learning about tinting.
Ask your child what this means.
We gradually added white to red to create a range of pinks. This is called tinting.
Happy Christmas Everyone!
HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
We hope you have a lovely family Christmas and a peaceful New Year!
Thanks so much for all the lovely gifts and kind messages in cards.
