See what we've been up to...
Cricket Engagement Day
We would like to say a huge thank you to James and Cricket Shropshire for our cricket engagement day! We learned some throwing and catching skills which lead to a really fun game of "Bird Poop"!
Don't worry, it wasn't as messy as it sounds!
Some of us have been really inspired to go and play cricket, which is brilliant!
We have been learning about States of Matter! Watch our video where we explain the science behind this!
Hogwarts Taster Day
We worked collaboratively on this beautiful piece of art work that depicts the different seasons.
Can you spot where each one is on the tree?
We made the most of the sunshine and took our learning outdoors! We did some observational drawings of the plants and the mini-beast that were around us and then we had some free time to explore the forest.
(We even had an imaginary fire - because it was too windy for a real one - and enjoyed some marshmallows!)
Design and technology
We have been testing materials check their suitability to tasks! Today, we wanted to see which materials would help our little paper boats float!
If you want to have a go at home, here is the video link that we watched to help make our boats!
It is important that we have an understanding of the world around us, so we have been watching a few minutes of Newsround each day. We especially love the happy news segment!
World book day!
We loved seeing everyone's favourite characters today! Can you spot anyone from your favourite book?
We are learning all about habitats in science, so we went into the forest to see if we could make some new homes from the creatures that live there!
Calming Glitter Jars
As part of our focus on wellbeing, we made calming glitter jars. If you'd like to make one too, have a look at the instructions below.
Listen to us sharing a story!
Egg drop challenge!!
What a half term it has been!
Keep up the great work!
Another brilliant week of home learning!
Week 3 home learning - Well done Skyflyers!
Look at these amazing Lava Lamps!
Another fantastic week of home learning! Well done Skyflyers!
I have been so overwhelmed by all your hard work Skyflyers! I am so proud our you! Here is a look at what you have all beed doing in the first week of home learning...
We know it's been a strange year, so we wanted to send a little message in place of our usual Christmas Production.
The children had a great time putting this together and we hope you enjoy it!! Remember - Love, actually, is all around!
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
We've been designing and making castles!! Have a look at our designs laid out on our planning sheets and then marvel in the amazing building process!
The Bayeux Tapestry
We have been learning about one of the most significant events in British history, the start of the Norman Reign!
As part of our learning, we looked at the Bayeux tapestry. We gained a lot of history knowledge from this and then we used this as a great opportunity to brush up on our art skills by trying to recreate some of the scenes.
The Castle and the Mighty Knight
We are writing stories about a castle, and a knight on a quest to slay a dragon! Today, we started to think about our main character and how we were going to describe this brave warrior!
We have been remembering those who fought for us, and those who are still serving in the forces to keep us safe. We worked together using lots of different techniques to create this poppy that is displayed outside of our classroom.
Author Workshop - Luke Temple
We have had the pleasure of taking part in a Luke Temple writing workshop! Luke sent us videos with lessons on how to write amazing stories like his very own "Felix Dashwood and the Mutating Mansion".
Part of our workshop was to design our own mutation mansion that we would later write a chapter about after learning lots of writing techniques!
Stormin' Norman Morning
As part of our introduction to our new topic, 1066, Skyflyers and Voyagers took part in a memorable experience all about the Normans. We designed and made shields, created Norman castles out of Lego, ate bread, drank milk, made feather quill pencils and practised our sewing skills linked to the Bayeux Tapestry.
It was a great way to kick off our new topic!
For halloween, we produced some silhouette art! We created the background using our knowledge of watercolours and how to change their tone.
To help us to write some instructions on how to carve a pumpkin, we got some first hand experience first!
Check out our pumpkins (and our super spooky halloween faces!)
