Places of Worship... A visit to St. Pauls Cathedral
As part of our RE unit of work on 'Special Places' we went to explore a very special cathedral. Emily, our guide, explained that St. Paul's was built for the people who lived in London, no matter what faith or beliefs you have. So, armed with this new knowledge, that this building technically was 'ours' we went to explore.... All the way to the very top .... our reward for the climb were some spectacular views over our beautiful city!
Well done to all our 'cathedral climbers'.... you were definitely 'more bear'!!!!
The Story of Diwali...
(read by a very special guest!)
Today Seema came to our class to read us the story of Rama and Sita. Seema was our teacher in reception so we were very excited. Seema was so impressed that we had remembered the story characters from when we were in her class two years ago.
Thank you Seema... please come back a visit us again soon.
Mouse Day for Merlo!
Friday is feeding day for our pet snake Merlo and after shedding an impressive 92cm skin earlier in the week he was definitely ready for his dinner today!
Forward planning for spring!
This week we planted a variety of bulbs in our class planter. Now we will have to wait until the spring to see our 'floral display!'.
Observing closely using simple equipment.
Paleontologists at work!
Digging for 'fossilised dinosaur bones' ! We worked together in teams to use our problem solving skills today. What do you think we discovered? You will have to wait and see!....
A day in the country..
Countryside Live... exploring traditional crafts and meeting some very talented animals... from a team of sheepdogs to one of the biggest birds of prey in the world... the magnificent American Bald Eagle!
Fire Safety Workshop.
Today we had a special lesson from the London Fire Brigade about what to do in case of a fire.
The fireman asked us if we knew our home address ..... this is important because if we ever need the help of the emergency services we must be able to give them our address.
Only one child in the whole class knew their home address!!!
PLEASE HELP YOUR CHILD LEARN THEIR HOME ADDRESS...
It might just save their life one day!
Welcome to Mudchute Farm!
All our 'Nature Rangers' have now had their induction lesson at the farm. We enjoyed meeting some of the animals we will be working with this year... We also managed to harvest some of produce that was planted by last year's children... thank you!
Our travelling sloths...
Today our weekend friends Sid and Rock went off for their first adventure with Waseem and Jana. We can't wait to read about what they all got up to when they return on Monday!
Welcome to our Kandinsky Gallery...
Kandinsky inspired art.
We learnt about about a famous artist called Kandinsky. He used to listen to music whilst he painted. Kandinsky painted feelings rather than what he saw. We looked at some of the art he produced and had a go ourselves.... We used oil pastels and ink.
Watch out for our finished works of art... (coming soon!)
