Please see SeeSaw for all our up to date pictures and videos of what is happening in class! We love to share a glimpse into our world at school.
Today was online safety day! Our online safety councilors created a presentation around how to be safe on the internet and delivered it to the whole class. They were fantastic! We then used the information to create our own posters to go around school.
On Friday we designed our own pizza suitable for a 4-7 year old child. We tried to make them look child friendly and made sure we had balanced toppings! Today, we then used our design to make our own pizza. It was so fun - they looked delicious!
This half term we have been reading Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit. This week, we have been writing our own rhyming poems on Mount Vesuvius. Today, we performed them in front of the class showing intonation, tone and volume.

Springwood have had a fantastic afternoon at our Stone Age to Iron Age workshop. The children examined many different artefacts including lots of fossils and even became archaeologists for the afternoon! They used their equipment carefully to find the different artefacts in their sand tray - it was so much fun!
17.12.21 - Our Class Christmas Song
Today in topic we have been learning all about the Stonehenge. We looked at how it was built and then used everything we had learnt to make our own 3D model out of biscuits. It was so fun and we also enjoyed eating them afterwards!
In literacy, we are looking at writing instructions. Today we looked at some instructions of how to make a stone age dessert but all of the steps were in the wrong order! We had to put them in the correct order and then we followed them to make our own stone age dessert. We used blackberries, blueberries and honey. Some of the children enjoyed it - but I think they would much rather have the desserts that we have now!
Today in our science lesson, we looked at the Eatwell plate and learnt all about what makes a healthy, balanced diet. We sorted different foods into their food groups and looked at why we need each food group and what it does in our body. We then worked in groups to prepare a healthy main meal for our client. It was very fun - we made sure we gave them vegetables, protein and carbohydrates.
Springwood have had a super fun maths morning for our festival of triangles! We completed some triangle puzzles and did lots of triangle art. We made our own pictures out of triangles and also made a triangle mosaic.
In science today, we were identifying the different parts of a flowering plant. We dissected our own plants and identified the root, stem, flower and leaf. We then looked at the function of each part.
Today in literacy, we have been practicing using inverted commas. We used pasta for our inverted commas and wrote our speech sentences on the table - it was very fun!
