Weekly Class Updates
As part of our Art topic we have been looking at minibeasts and the patterns that you might find on their bodies. We looked at different snail shells and had a go at recreating the coil pattern on the shell. We used lollypop sticks and cocktail sticks to create a pattern on the snails body and then we added on our own shells.
As part of our Science topic where we learn how to group animals we went for a school trip to Tring Museum. Whilst we were there we were able to look at the different exhibits and take part in a workshop which helped us to learn how to group invertebrates.
Special Assembly with Fr. Alex
We were very lucky to have a special assembly with Fr. Alex where he talked about the different parts of the Mass and why we have each part.
As part of our DT topic we have been learning about healthy eating and creating our own healthy snacks. We planned our kebab and the different fruits that we wanted to include.
Bekonscot Model Village
As part of our History topic about toys we went to visit Bekonscot where we took part in a ‘History of Toys’ workshop. During this workshop we were lucky to handle toys from the 1930s and compare them to toys that some of us have today. Then we were able to have a look at the model village as well.
