What we have been doing in class

Summer 1

Its nature week! We have been labelling plants and explaining their functions.

Spring 2

We have continued our pirate topic this half term.

We had to design an outfit for Pirate Pete to wear on his voyage around the world. we researched different styles of clothing and tested materials to find ones that were most suitable.

We had some brilliant pirate homework!

For our enterprise project we became ASA rocks! we designed rocks and hid them around Darfield for people to find! We made a staggering £137!

Spring 1

Our new topic is all about pirates!

We had a wonderful theme day! We dressed up as pirates, made shelters for a desert island and made pirate maps!

Today we enjoyed our role play area.

We also made our own pirate boats and tested them to see if they would float or sink.

Our topic this half term is Animal Antics. We are finding out about mini beasts and their habitats. We went on a mini beast hunt then made our own in the classroom.

In maths this half term we are looking at fractions. We are finding halves and quarters of shapes, objects and amounts.

Autumn 2

Our topic this half term has been The Complete Athlete. We have been keeping our bodies healthy. Here wwe are brushing our teeth.

Keep practicing your 2s, 5s and 10s!

We have been writing about the Lighthouse Keeper. We ordered the events using time conjunctions.

 

Autumn 1

16.10.17

Today we were practicing our numberbonds

 

13.10.17

We made houses in the style of those in London 1666. Some of them are on fire!

 

9.11.17

We had a special delivery today. Our package had Wine and Cheese inside…who is it from?

3.10.17

Some of our children have enjoyed building houses in the construction area. Can you build a new Pudding Lane?

2.10.17

We have started learning about our new topic, The Great Fire of London. We acted out what happened.

We went on a nature walk today. We looked at nature around us and thought about how it was created.

_________________________________________________________________________

Nature Week (24.01.17)

We had a very exciting start to the half term. Today the children went on a ‘nature walk’ around their local environment; looking for different types of plants and trees. Here’s what they found on their travels…

Enterprise project.

The children have worked extremely hard on their enterprise project. They decided to design and make buns and biscuits in order to sell them at a profit. Here they are hard at work….Mary Berry eat your heart out!

 

“Design a kid!”

Here are a few pictures of the children’s fantastic homework from our topic!

Science Exhibition.

What a brilliant day! An opportunity for children to discuss,explain and share their science projects with children from each group and parents.  The Learning Ladybird’s had a special job for Barnaby Bear. They had to design and make a piece of clothing for one of the 4 climates ; hot, cold, snowy, rainy, that he was travelling to. I am sure Barnaby Bear will love them all!

The Great Fire of London.

The children really enjoyed our topic about The Great Fire of London. They learnt about events from the past, Samuel Pepys and what has happened since the Great Fire. Children were fascinated by the events that took place and decided to take their learning home! Here are some examples of some fantastic creative homework made by the children in The Learning Ladybirds!

Animal Antics.

The Learning Ladybirds have really enjoyed our ‘Animal Antics’ topic. They have had the opportunity to find their own Minibeasts in the wild; before choosing their favourite and creating a fact file about it.

The children then moved onto learning about  larger animals and looked at the different ways that animals could be grouped. On Tuesday 10th January, we had a very special visitor come into class.

Can you name the animal and the group it belongs to?

 

Land Ahoy Homework.

Children in The Learning Ladybirds are really enjoying completing their creative pieces of homework related to ‘Land Ahoy!’ Here are a few pictures of the models that the children have created!

Land Ahoy! (WC: 07.11.2016)

The children are really enjoying their current topic of ‘Land Ahoy!’ So far the children have planned their own pirate journeys; labeling continents and oceans along the way. Here are some of the treasure maps that the children have also created. They include human and physical features!”

Roald Dahl : 23rd September 2016

The children loved our Roald Dahl day and dressing up as characters from his books. They did lots of activities throughout the day to support reading, had a scrumdiddlyumptious dinner and loved welcoming their parents into class at the end of the day.
