Cling film, Lighthouses and Shapes!
Beech Class have been busy working away since Christmas. They have been enjoying our topic on ‘Coastlines and Lighthouses’ and we have done a lot of work around this in English, Geography and Art.
In English we have been looking closely at a book called ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ by Ronda and David Armitage. We have done a lot of work around descriptions, speech marks and non-fiction writing; focusing on punctuation, adjectives and interesting sentence starters.
In Cubes Maths group we have been learning to tell the time to quarter past and to (in digital and analogue time) and begin to know it to 5 minutes. We have also been learning about 3D shapes and being able to name, sort and describe them.
In PE we have been going back to basics and practising our throwing and catching skills with different sized balls. Through this we have been playing some Benchball and various games that incorporate throwing and catching. The children have also enjoyed our Yoga sessions and practising the art of relaxation and breathing as well as learning the positions!
In Art/D&T the children made their own lighthouses using different materials! We have been collecting a lot of kitchen rolls over the past few weeks and it paid off! The children used the Science equipment for Electricity and made a simple circuit to light up the lighthouse! We also painted some seascapes onto cling film which the children found really fun and exciting!
