Each week we will be sharing a different story with the children in story time. Here is a list of what story will be read each week with a link to a video of it being read. It would be nice if you could either watch it together or read it (if you have the book) at home as well
Beech Class looked fantastic on World Book Day, thank you for all your support!
We had a fabulous time painting our sculptures.
A REAL dinosaur came to visit us today! We learnt all about Sophie the T-Rex and we had a fantastic time. Did you know a T-Rex could grow to up to 12 m?
We have made dinosaur eggs to put our dinosaur sculpture in.
We used our computer skills and books from the library to find out about our favourite dinosaur.
We were paleontologists. We found real fossils in the sand and we used our research skills to find out what dinosaurs they belonged too.
Today we have been experimenting with clay, learning to join two smooth pieces together using tools and water.
We have been performing tests with our senses to decide which smell, taste, sight, feel and sound goes with Ella’s bear.
We are learning about directing, prompting and acting in our own cookery videos. Here’s one of our practise attempts!
What a fantastic job our children did learning all about The Great Fire of London!
We have been testing materials to see if they sink or float.
It’s been a super first day back. We have been doing lots of artwork all about Bonfire Night and we have also learned some Bonfire Night safety rules. Please ask your child all about them.
We looked at differences between Mansfield and a seaside town.
Look at our Beech Class explorers!
We talked about what we would find in our local area.
For our history work we looked at transport through the ages. In the afternoon we had a visit from one of the first forms of transport! We all enjoyed meeting Norman.
In our Design and Technology sessions we created moving vehicles.
