This week dosbarth Mrs Curtis have been planning and designing their outdoor space. We started by measuring the area using trundle wheels, then deciding as a class on the scale to use on the plans.
The next step was to measure the shed and the outdoor classroom, ready to add them to our plans.
Team work was needed for this exercise.
Back in the classroom, each table drew up their scaled plans. They decided where they wanted the different areas to be, including a new cherry tree and what we are going to plant in the planters.
The year 6’s had the job of planting the cherry tree outside the classroom.
The Children in dosbarth Mrs Curtis are happy that they are back in school with their friends. We have been having lessons outside enjoying the new playground and it’s markings, the outdoor classroom and the rainbow picnic benches.
A language, literacy and communication lesson outside. Discussing the reasons for and against children having mobile phones.
Our new insect hotel being filled with sticks.
We even have dinner outside, enjoying the spring sunshine.
Since Class 1 have returned to school the children have been very busy learning all about dinosaurs. The children have made a a dinosaur silhouette. Don’t they look amazing!
Dosbarth Mrs Curtis have created a gallery in the classroom. Everyone has re-created a famous piece of artwork, this is linked to the work we are doing in Language, Literacy and Communication, based on the book ‘Framed’.
This week the children in Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne used the houses and stick puppets that they made last week to act out the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
