Spring Term

We have kicked off this term with the traditional story of Hansel and Gretel.  1EB have enjoyed getting it in to role and acting it out. 

This term we enjoyed a trip to the Museum of Childhood to kick off our ‘Toys’ topic.  We compared toys from the past with the toys that we like to play with today.  We also attended a puppet workshop and explored some different puppets.

Following our trip we made our own moving puppets using different materials.

We have been getting musical this term by taking part in Gamelan workshop where we played instruments from Bali and Indonesia.

Here we are taking part in an obstacle course for sports relief.

Looking after our world

Our science topic is ‘Animals’ and we have started by looking at humans.  We drew around each other and labelled our different body parts.  We have been learning about the senses and the body parts we need for need for each sense.  We went on a listening walk and investigated if sound could travel through a piece of string.
