Welcome Back!!!

Welcome back everybody, We (Mrs Tennant and Mr Saunders) Hope you had a lovely break and are ready for the new term.

 

This term we will be looking at traditional tales. A traditional tale is a story that has been told and re-told for many years, and consequently, becomes a story that almost everyone knows. Traditional tales are also referred to as fairystories or fairy tales.

 

Can you tell Mrs Tennant or myself, what your favourite traditional tale is?

 

Ask your parents what their favourite traditional tale is/was?

 

We look forward to finding out what your favourites are.

Making Easter Nests

Posted by launn on Monday Mar 27, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Last week we made Easter Nests.
First we had to write a shopping list of ingredients that we needed to make the nests. Next Miss Gaijda and some very sensible children had to go to the shop with the shopping list to buy the ingredients.

Then we made the nests by melting the chocolate in the microwave and mixing the ingredients together before adding some mini eggs on top.
We hope you enjoyed eating them 🙂

Friction Experiment

Posted by launn on Wednesday Mar 22, 2017 Under Uncategorized

We wanted to find out which materials create the most friction and cause the car to slow down. We made sure it was a fair test by always having the ramp at the same height, not pushing the car but allowing it to fall naturally once released and ensuring we measured the distance the car traveled as it came to a natural stop. We tested foil, net, faux fur and artificial grass. Do you remember which one created the most friction and caused the car to slow down the most? Can you remember why?

Bird Walk with the RSPB

Posted by launn on Wednesday Mar 22, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Last week we went on a bird walk in Grafton Square with the RSPB. We saw a robin, a pigeon and a blackbird. We also saw lots of clues that birds live there like feathers, twigs, bird poo, berries and insects. What birds have you seen in Clapham that we didn’t see today?

Pancakes!

Posted by launn on Wednesday Mar 22, 2017 Under Uncategorized

We are all scientists in RL, as part of Science week we learnt about solids and liquids by making pancakes. We mixed solids (flour and salt) with liquids (eggs and milk) and mixed them to create a liquid. We then heated the mixture (fried them) and watched as they turned into a solid (pancake)! Some of us wrote recipes, we all made them and we all recorded what we did. We had to work as a group and decide who was adding each ingredient and took it in turns to mix the pancake mixture. We then chose our toppings and enjoyed eating them.

Dinosaurs in RL

Posted by launn on Wednesday Mar 15, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Hello!
Over the last few weeks RL have been learning lots about dinosaurs. Here are some of the activities we have been doing.

*Comparing size and shape using words such as longer, shorter, taller, smaller. Can you compare the dinosaurs in the photos below?

*Doubling and halving groups of dinosaurs. If there were 6 dinosaurs and half of them went to get a drink how many dinosaurs would be left? What is half of 6?

*We made models of dinosaurs and fossils using clay.

 

*We have done some fantastic writing about dinosaurs. We have been sounding out our words, using tricky words, putting capital letters and full stops in the correct place and we have been remembering to use our spooky spaces.

Money 2 Money

We use money to buy clothes, food and toys. Where does money come from? Why do we need money? Do you recognise any of the coins. Take a look at the pictures from your homework which explains a little about what you use money for or how much money you have saved.

Diwali

Posted by launn on Thursday Nov 3, 2016 Under Understanding the World

This week we have been looking at the celebration of Diwali. RL have been focusing on the fact that it is Hindu and Sikh religions that celebrate Diwali. The most important thing that the children have learnt is that everyone celebrates different things and we have to respect this. RL have learnt about the story of Rama and Sita and have been learning about the fact that Diwali is a celebration of lights. They have talked about different ways in which people celebrate; they have feasts, they wear new clothes and exchange gifts. RL have also been looking at Rangoli pattern and that people have Rangoli mats outside their homes at this time to welcome in Lakshmi; the goddess of wealt

h, and to welcome in family and friends at this time of celebration.

Take a look at some of their symmetrical Rangoli patterns below. Remember, symmetrical means it has to be exactly the same on both sides.
