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.
This afternoon Year 2 were provided with coordinates on a map and they had to work in teams to collect hidden letters from around the school. The aim was to be the most accurate, fastest and collaborate. Well done to those teams who completed it but especially to our teams from Palm Class who came first and second place and a team from Apple who came third. What skills did you use to find the hidden letters.
Year One worked together yesterday using arial photographs of the school to find out where they where. They looked at key features such as buildings, roads and car parks to help them. They then had a go at creating their own map. Can you remember what a key is?
This afternoon, Year Two went outside to practise giving each other directions using the compasses. Can you remember which way the needle always points? What was opposite East?
What a great day had by all the children in year 5, who ventured over to Goodrington Beach for a workshop on Coastal Geography.
The day was spent learning about different wave formations, how towns are protected by different sea defences, coastal erosion, how fossils are made and so much more!
The weather was great and the children were a credit to Hazeldown School, showing great enthusiasm and engagement with all the activities.
