Whinless Down Adventure
To start off our topic this term we took a walk and went on an adventure! We walked to the Whinless Down and then went off in groups. The adults let us lead the way around and we explored the area. We found lots of fun an exciting things that we hadn’t seen before!
We used some of the materials we collected from the Whinless Down to design and make our own boats to link with our English story called ‘Lost and Found’. We used a variety of other handmade resources we could find and made the boats. We then used the water tray outside to test whether our boats floated or sunk. We were extremely successful!
In maths we have been learning the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We used resources to make 3D shapes using the knowledge we have learnt.
As part of our topic, we have been looking at famous explorers. One of these is Neil Armstrong who was the 1st man to walk on the moon. We imagined we were him and wrote and made our own podcasts about the first experiences.
In RE we learnt all about the Jewish Faith. We made our own Mezuzah’s and inside wrote some class promises we want to stick to. We check these every day just like the Jewish Faith do.
We have been looking at symmetrical patterns. Using mirrors we used peg boards, lego and cubes to check if shapes were symmetrical or not.
