Mrs Jeffery’s Group, 14.7.20
Here is a glimpse into what the group with Mrs Jeffery has been up to over the last week.
We worked on our collaboration skills. Some of us made musical instruments whilst other choreographed a dance and sang to accompany the musicians. Later we performed it.
Some of us took a closer look at predators. Some children created their ultimate predator by combing more than one.
We also spent some time building time machines. Later we used the chrome books to label the different parts and write about where we would go and why.
We all loved singing a song about the continents. we sang this over and over and over. We will never forget it now and neither will Mrs Jeffery. Later, we made power points about the different continents, drew our own muddled up maps and found different creatures that live on each continent.
We have also enjoyed playing ladders in P.E.
Year 2 have been making balloon powered cars. We have learned a lot from all our failed attempts which means our brains have grown heaps. We had to figure out how to attach the wheels; learned how to get them to turn using a mechanism and over come the problem of also blowing up the balloon.
We look forward to seeing you at our race tomorrow.
Today the children in Year Two started making their very own sea creature models. They had researched them, spend time designing them and finally it was time to get hands on. What techniques did you use? Did you have to do any carving or joining?
Year One put their water squirts to the test today. We all came up with a set of rules and then the competition began to see whose would squirt the furthest.
The dragons have been assembled and are looking fantastic ready for our celebration! We have worked hard within our groups to collaborate and discuss and share our ideas!
Our designated brick collectors chose bricks from the ones available after discussion in our groups!
This afternoon we have started evaluating our finished products thinking about what we like about them but also what we would do differently next time.
This morning in Oak class we got ourselves into groups of 5 ready to design, build and then finally evaluate a dragon model we will make out of lego!
We allocated roles within our teams; a project manager, a designer, a brick collector and 2 main constructors who will focus on the stability and structure of the dragon!
We looked at Lego dragons that already exist to gather our own ideas within our groups! Once we have finished our design, the building shall commence!
Teignmouth town centre was lit up with all of our wonderful willow lanterns on Saturday 24.11.18. Despite the weather, the turn-out for the parade was amazing. Thank you so much to all the families that joined us on Saturday. All the hard work whilst making the lanterns was rewarded with a brilliant spectacle of glowing lanterns as far as the eye could see. A massive thank you to all the parents for their help making them and for joining in the event. Well done everybody.
Today the children continued building their willow lanterns. It was fantastic to see so many children working collaboratively and to have so many wonderful helpers come. They lanterns are looking amazing! We can’t wait to see them in the parade on Saturday.
