Today we had a fab afternoon making our own woolly mammoths. I was so impressed with how well you all worked and the creations you produced!
This week in Class 3 we found out about Stonehenge. We had great fun making it out of biscuits!!
It was so busy and creative in Class 3 this afternoon (it was also a little messy!) We learnt lots about weaving, printing and sculpting and had lots of FUN!
We enjoyed being hunters and gatherers using our ‘spears’ out on the field. We then had great fun completing Stone Age menus – would anyone care for any sabre tooth tiger burger with dandelion and caterpillar chips???! Perhaps nettle and blackberry crumble would be more to your taste!!! The children had fantastic ideas!!
Well, it’s been a busy couple of weeks in class 3…..
In English, we completed some fantastic blackout poetry linked to the war and Remembrance Day. I was so impressed with the children’s very sensible comments and amazing moving poems. The children really enjoyed this different style of work.
In maths we have been looking at multiplication. The children worked well to address their friend’s misconceptions and explain what needed to be altered – keep up the hard work on learnings those times table facts.
We have had an absolutely AMAZING day today at Barff Farm. We built, climbed, painted, constructed, played, ate, explored, walked and most certainly laughed!!!! The children we brilliant, thank you to everyone who played a part in making it such a success…here are some photos and a video to see all the fun!
We ended the week with a visit from Furry Friends Mobile Farm. Emma, Helen and Emma told us all about the animals they have, how many of them are rescue animals and the places they take them. It was amazing to watch the video of the ponies in the care homes and how happy they made people. After this, we got our own chance to handle some of the animals, it really was a brilliant session – thanks again for coming!
On Thursday, Pippa’s Dad came to talk to us about Engineering. We found out about many of the projects he has worked on, from apartments to bridges and also about the company he currently works for near Bridlington. Before he left he set us our own engineering challenge to build a structure 15cm high which would balance an apple on the top, we had great fun and each team was successful!!
We started the morning finding out about what Mrs Holland does in the office
And then found out about the work of Mr Brompton who is a lifeboat engineer based in Bridlington
On Tuesday, I gave the children the opportunity to interview myself! They asked some fab questions which gave them much more of an insight into what happens behind the scenes at school.
Some of their comments really made me smile….
“I wouldn’t choose teaching – I don’t want to work weekends!”
“I would like marking books because I like being nosey”
“I didn’t realise there was so much planning to do”
“I’d love the chance to plan fun lessons like you do”
