This term we are following two IPC themes. Our term begins with 'Brainwaves' which is all about how our brains work and help us to learn. Our next theme is 'From A to B'. It begins with a Geography focus. We will be making maps and plans and thinking about our own locality. We will also be finding out about different types of transport.
Professor Sparks visited Year 1 and 2. We had to dissect a brain (not a real one) to find out what our brain helps us to do.
We got our brains busy solving puzzles.
We learned that knowledge and skills work together to make understanding clear. Just like looking through 3 d glasses. When we looked through just blue (knowledge) -nothing happened. When we tried just red (skills)- nothing happened. When we tried blue and red together (knowledge and skills) the magic really happened it all became clear and we understood. This is like learning.
Professor Sparks set us a challenge. We had to work out the way to carry out an obstacle course by asking questions. We then had to practise the skills to get better and quicker at it.
In Science we carried out a simple investigation to test paper aeroplane flights. We had to think about how to make our test fair. We suggested ways of improving our aeroplanes. We made our improvements and tested again to see if they worked.
We have performed our KS1 nativity performance, ‘The INN-spectors’.
The goddess Athene visited us. She told us her story about how she was born. She told us a story about a competition she had with Poseidon and how the first olive tree was created and the city of Athens was named. We tried some olives and feta cheese. We created shield designs as Athene is the goddess of war and wisdom.
We looked at Greek pot designs to find out more about how the Ancient Greeks lived. We made our own Pot designs.
World Book Day
We had a super day dressing up as our favourite book characters.
We learnt about the Native American Indians and the story behind dream catchers. We have been making a simple dream catcher.
We dressed up as characters from different stories and times. Our grown ups came in to find out about our term’s learning.
