We have been shading in maps of our area in class. We found our school on the map and places like Mare Street that we konw.We have learned how to use a key and what symbols and signs are used for on maps.

 

We have also done a jigsaw on a site called mapzone. Have a go yourself, we hope you have fun!world mapmapzone jigsawsJust click on the world map to try out the jigsaw.

Kew Gardens Here We Come!

As you know we are going to visit Kew gardens next week.We have been learning about plants and how they grow this half term. We have grown our own mustard seeds and tested what they needed to help them grow. We also visited different areas around school to see where plants are growing. The best place we went was the environmental garden where we saw an enormous moth.

All this learning has really prepared us for our trip to Kew. We have also had a look at the website for Kew and if you click on the picture you can play the Climbers and Creepers game.

Look who I found in the garden!

As you know our history topic this term is old and new toys and I have asked you to find out what your parents and grandparents used to play with.  I thought you might like to see one of the latest things to play with using the computer.  Have a chat with you family about how fast toys are changing.  Press play and enjoy.

You can now add comments about each post by clicking on the comment symbol above.  Just leave your name and I will read it and post it (obviously if suitable).

Louise and Martha are in Nottingham today telling lots of other teachers all about our blogs. So far the teachers have been really impressed and are thinking about setting up their own. We have told them how much you like showing your families what you do in school and that you enjoy using the websites we use in class when you get home to help your learning.

Welcome to the Summer Term

Summer seems to have arrived and so has our new term.

Come and Listen To Our Band!

Well done for making such a huge range of fantastic instruments for your homework last week. We took them to our music lesson with Jane and she was so impressed that she’d like parents/carers/friends to join us for assembly next Tuesday. We will play  for you and you will have a chance to see what wonders can be done with our homemade instruments! Also, feel free to ask to come and see our display in class where they are on show.
