Can you spot the children?
Reception have been seeing how long it takes to do 5 star jumps, and other energetic exercises, using their stop watches.
We’ve been very busy designing a fabric sample for the Smartest Giant. The children were inspired by Henri Matisse and William Morris, so have been choosing their own natural resources to make floral designs. With lovely results, see below!
Class One have been doing some observational drawings of their broad beans. They’re going to need larger pots!
With the challenge of building a 3D shape beanstalk behind a screen and describing it to a talk partner, our year 1 children have been recalling their shapes and describing them to each other with great attention to detail.
This week we’re learning how to develop our ball skills further with bouncing.
We’ve been teaming up with partners. and are using different equipment to increase the challenge. Next week, we’ll be using these skills in a few team building circuits.
Having planted our broad beans, we now have the responsibility of looking after them!
In science, we are testing some to see whether they actually need both water and sunlight with some experiments the children came up with. Don’t worry though, none of the children’s are involved in this!
This week we’re looking at controlling the ball through rolling. The children were rolling the balls along the lines of the playground and back and forth to each other. We even managed a game of Dodge Ball once we’d learned a few skills. Great fun!
We’ve had all kinds of fun this week with our new giants topic.
Of course, we couldn’t get away without growing some beanstalks! I wonder how tall they will get? Or whether there’ll be anything at the top!
