Treasure Hunt Welly Walk
On our Welly walk we were very surprised to find a letter from Percy Parrot who told us that somewhere in the woods treasure had been hidden! We had a great afternoon working together to solve the riddles and completing the art challenges to make sure we got to take the treasure back to school!
As part of our learning in English we were given the challenge of making our own sandwiches! The children were given a selection of fillings to choose from and had to follow instructions carefully to make sure their sandwich was delicious! After making the sandwiches the children wrote instructions to tell someone else how to make them. We thought carefully about using imperative verbs and writing in chronological order.
Acting out The Gruffalo
After our instruction writing in English we have gone on to look at the story of The Gruffalo! A book Willow Class love very much! As part of our sequence of lessons the children have had a go at acting out the story. The children chose a character that they would like to be and created a mask so that they could really get in to character. Then we spent some time in small groups practising our parts before bringing it altogether for a class performance of The Gruffalo! The children thought carefully about their actions and the voices they used when in character.
In Geography we have started learning about continents; so far we have looked at Australia and Africa. We have been gathering our information from videos, the iPads and encyclopaedias and have recorded the information in our own booklets. Our favourite facts so far have included learning that there are more sheep than humans in Australia and that lions, zebras and giraffes all live in Africa.
Multi-Skills Event at Honiton Leisure Centre
This week (11th March 2019) we went to Honiton to take part in a multi-skills event. We did a rotation of activities keeping us active for the whole 90 minutes! We completed many activities using skipping ropes, balance beams, tennis rackets and other fun equipment. We were helped by Honiton Community College students.
