Class Hero: All of Voyagers for their excellent home learning :-)
Celebrating our Home Learning
William has been recreating the work of the artist Peter Thorpe using a range of artistic techniques. I think he has done a great job! I particularly love the range of colours in the first picture and the use of feathers.
Freya has been working hard on all of her space tasks this week. I think you have lots of qualities to be a great astronaut Freya.
Finn has been making some delicious space biscuits. They look great Finn and lots of fun too!
Well done for your super work about Roman Gods Will!
Martin has been doing lots of writing around the topic- well done Martin.
Zach has been investigating gravity! Great job Zach- it looks lots of fun!
Connor has found out some information about Jovian and Terrestrial planets . Well done Connor. You've found some super facts and I love how you've presented your work.
Zach has drawn the phases of the moon in chalk on his patio. Well done Zach- what a super way to learn them!
Freya has been working super hard on her home learning again. She has written all about landing on the planet with some great description and also done some painting.
Have a read of Will's myth that he has written about the Sun and the Moon.
The Sun And The Moon
Many years ago, there lived brothers named Sun and Moon . Moon wanted to find the rock god and sun wanted to find the fire god to light up the sky so they could see where they were going on their adventures into the jungle.
They set off in the jungle, Moon going left and Sun going right . They both walked, minutes turned into hours and hours turned into days but by then it was too late to go back.
After a year had gone past, Sun was tired and fell into a pit of fiery hot magma and Moon had heavy rocks fall on him because he was walking on a dangerous mountain. As soon as they died, they launched into the air, Moon as a ball of rock and Sun as a ball of fire.
People were cheering that they could finally see where they were going and would never need an oil lamp wherever they went. The people on earth were happy.
To this day they still circle round the earth looking for each other to see if they want to go on more adventures.
William has been working hard on his home schooling. He created his planet yesterday afternoon. It is the planet 'Zeena' and has been constructed from a tennis ball, paint, cardboard and foil.
Finn has created a planet called Grongo that has two sides with a city. Super work Finn!
Super planets created by Freya and Natasha
Martin has been really busy at home. He's currently doing some coding following the Code-IT scheme which uses Scratch as its basis. Martin's Mum has kindly provided the link below to the 'smoking car game' pdf so that other pupils can also have a go.
Martin's also been learning about electrical circuits using his Fischer Technik. He's made a series circuit model and a parallel circuit and tested them both. He has also been having fun in his garden.
Will has thought about what his own planet would be like. I'm not sure how I'd get on with the lack of sleep on this planet Will but I certainly like the sound of the doughnuts.
Freya's Science Work
Well done Freya. You have found out some super facts and I can see you are trying really hard with your handwriting.
William's Planets Poster
Great job Will! Some good information and your poster is very eye catching.
Some more fabulous work sent in from our pupils (Martin, Natasha & Connor)
Martin would like to share his Lego deck section he created. He's been reading a lot about wooden sailing ships recently.
Natasha has stitched a super chick, which she has made out of felt.
Connor has been doing lots of work on his SPaG, Maths and he has written a super diary entry about the mining disaster. You've tried really hard to think about the writer's feelings and emotions- well done Connor!!
Voyagers' 'Eggcellent' Home Learning
We have been sent some super work by our pupils this week. Well done to everyone.
Olivia has been doing some great writing and has picked out the sentence types that she has used. Finn and Freya have made their exhibits for their coal mining museum with amazing detail. Izzy has been very busy at home, she has created a super poster for her window to thank our amazing NHS. She has also been making her own soap, which will certainly come in handy for all of the handwashing. Great work team!
Martin's Coal Mining Machine
Martin made a coal mining machine which works and can cut packing peanuts. It has wooden wheels, sharp straw blades and is called a coal finch. He used it to dig a tunnel in the blue coal and white rock.
Well done for your poster Zach. I can see some great facts on there. Good work on making it bold- exactly what it needs to stand out.
Alyza has been doing some Maths at home. Well done for using the bar model to represent your fractions. It's a great method.
Martin's description of his garden
Super writing Martin. I love your use of expanded noun phrases and your garden sounds like a super place to explore. It's great to see you working on your spelling too.
What do you love about reading?
To tie in with our topic 'Road Trip USA', we designed and cooked a range of fruit pies. We conducted market research, tasted pies already available, came up with a design brief and developed our chopping, pastry making and baking skills.
Writing Parent Workshop
We had a great time at our parent workshop. We talked about our sentence ladder and parents had the opportunity to write with their children. Thank you for coming.
Voyagers had lots of fun during our 'Dental Experience'. They got to use real dental equipment, book appointments and engage in lots of hands on practical activities. They also got to use 'disclosing tablets', which turned the plaque on our teeth blue and red. We are pleased to report that all Voyagers had squeaky clean teeth.
We designed Anglo- Saxon Wool Prints
RAF Cosford Remembrance Workshop.
The team from RAF Cosford Museum came in to launch an art and poetry competition and talk to us about what remembrance means to us.
Reading Parent Workshop
