Keep watching our class page as we will be filling it with exciting class news, photographs and video clips of things we’ve done during our lessons!
The newsletter for Term 2 has been added to the website and this will give you some information on work that is being covered during lessons this term.
We are hoping to go on a habitat walk around the local area on Friday morning which links to our current Science unit of work. Please could you ensure that your child has a pair of wellington boots and a rain coat in school!
We now have our own class wellie boot rack!
Mrs Uden has asked if all parents could now provide their child with a pair of boots that can be kept here in school, please could you also ensure that these are clearly labelled with your child's name.
Many thanks for doing this in advance.
Next week we will be completing some more art based work. We are going to be creating a safari sunset picture, we need to find out how to make a silhouette and find out how to mix watercolour paints. Watch out for some finished examples next week!
The Maasai Tribe love music and dance, both are very special in the Maasai culture. They sing lots of songs together, wear lots of beaded jewellery and wear their best clothes. The Maasai Tribe perform a special dance, called the jumping dance.
We are currently making our own version of a Maasai collar so watch out for the photographs!
The Hedgehog class have been working hard on their map skills this week!
We have been using an atlas to help us locate where the United Kingdom and Africa are placed on a world map.
We then looked at a more detailed map of Kenya and located Nairobi (the capital city), Kisumu and Mombasa (other cities), Mount Kenya (a mountain), lake Victoria (a water source) and also the Indian Ocean. We then created our own version of a map of Kenya and even used a key, Mrs Jackson was very impressed!
Our new topic (Geography based) is all about going on safari whilst in Kenya!
Today we spoke about needing a passport, then we made our plane tickets and boarding passes, after that we boarded our flight on Kenyan Airways and travelled to Kenya! The Hedgehogs have now arrived at their destination and are waiting to explore!
The votes are in and Mrs Jackson is pleased to announce that our new Year 1/2 School Council members are ... ... ... ... ...
