Year Two, Exploring with Compasses, 7.5.19
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?
Green Team met at lunch time today and took inspiration from fireworks to create their own pieces of natural art.
This afternoon Year 1 ventured outside into the woods to make self portraits. We then worked together to make a model of our bodies. We will be using these during the first term next year, when we will learn more about parts of the body and our senses.
We had something very exciting arrive in the post today. Our baby caterpillars. Over the next few weeks we will get to watch them grow. We also explored the school grounds too, limboing under brambles and finding our own baby creatures.
Yesterday a group of Year 5 and 6 children worked with Nicky Scott from Devon Recycling to put together the first of two Hot Boxes that we have bought through a recycling grant from Devon County Council. The grant has been supported by funds from the PTA and will enable us to recycle all our raw food waste on site, cutting down on our contribution to landfill and making some lovely compost to use in our garden at the same time!
Apple class had fun with maths outside today.
They challenged themselves and each other to create differnt number sentences using greater than, less than and equal too. Who could you challenge at home?
This afternoon some children fromYear 1 have been building a Bug Hotel! We talked about the different insects that might want to live in our Bug Hotel and put different materials in to make different habitats. Which insects do you think might want to live here?
