After a long time of all being apart, whether it was learning from home or at school, we are finally back together and able to have LOTS of fun. This week in school, we have focussed heavily on supporting the children's emotional wellbeing. We have done this through lots of team-building activities.
Below are some photos and videos of what we have been up to!
We learnt how to be a team-player through lots of discussions, and then we put these skills to the test by trying to build super duper tall towers with building blocks!!
Then we played really fun games with the parachute, and a game called fruit salad where we had to fun and swap chairs with somebody in the class!
Look at us trying to get the dominoes off the parachute!
We have also been learning about inventors in our topic this half-term, this week we have learnt about trains! We now know that in the past you would have got on a steam train to places, instead of the electric trains we see today. We decided to go on a steam train journey around our classroom to see what we could find out of the windows.
In maths so far this term, we have been learning about mass. We now know the difference between grams and kilograms and have been using different forms of equipent to measure the mass of items. To consolidate this very important learning, on Friday afternoon we made the cakes that could have caused the fire in the Great Fire of London!!! We really had to put our knowledge to the test when measuring out our ingredients!
Our topic in science this term is microhabitats. Today, we went outside into the school's garden and found lots of different microhabitats and lots and lots of minibeasts that lived in them!!
