Garage Band With Mrs Henderson

We have been having fun learning about an app called Garage Band at music time.  Here we are sharing our songs we created using thick and thin sounds. Pretty cool right!

Fairy Tale Dress Up Day

On Friday we had a Fairy Tale Celebration! We all came to school dressed up. We had a fun bubble parade and disco too!  

We even made some cool recycled tin drums!

Look at all the cans we brought to give families with less than us! Thank you all.

What a great day!

Paper Tower Challenge

We have been learning how to work well in groups and yesterday we had a challenge to build the tallest tower in 20 minutes.  We only had some newspaper, 4 straws, tape, scissors and 1 piece of paper.  We found the challenge lots of fun and in the end only one team managed to make their tower stand up!  We will try again with our newly learned co-operative skills another day.

Making Paper

On Friday we had a go at making our own paper from old paper.  

Firstly we had to cut it all up into squares and soak it in water overnight.  

Then we put it into Mrs Ray's food processor and blitzed it up.  It felt soft and squishy.  We tipped it into a big container and mixed it with more water. 

Next, we had to use a printing screen and catch some of the paper mix and let the water drain out onto a towel.  We got to press some petals and hearts into it.

We flipped the screen over and banged the paper out onto baking paper to leave over the weekend to dry.

We loved making paper!

Each Orange Had 8 Slices

This week we looked at a new story called 'Each Orange Had 8 Slices' here:

We first talked about what a group was and Mrs Ray showed us different groups of objects on the mat.  We then read the story and looked at the first flower page. We tried to work out the questions using what we have learned about problem-solving like acting it act and drawing it.  Mrs Ray taught us how to show working using an array and a number sentence.

We went into buddies with one picture to try and work out the 3 questions.  We did really well and even wrote some groups of as times tables!

Athletics Day *Lots of Photos Warning

Yesterday we had our athletics day.  We had a lovely sunny day, but it was super windy!

We competed at long jump, tennis ball throw, high jump, sprints, relay and soft shot.  It was all about having fun and as you can tell from the pictures, we loved it!
