We have been creating traditional patterns on plates. We used wax crayons and water paints to create the effect. We then had a look at the Greek Alphabet and wrote our names on pots.

In science the last few weeks, we have been looking at 'Plants and Living Things'. We have looked at how plants spread pollen, the parts of flowers as well as the life cycles of different animals. Today, we made short news reports to show some of the amazing information that we learnt.  Some children have said:

 

Mason: I have learnt that some animals give birth to eggs and some don't.

Haroon: chickens turn into hens!!

Ali: Brown feathered chickens are female and yellow feathered chickens are males.

Ella: When an animal is inside an adult it is called an Embryo.

Lexi: The male chickens have yellow feathers.

On Thursday 4th April 2019, Hagrid Class visited Sarehole Mill Museum. We had a splashing day, even though the weather wasn't kind to us, we still made lots of memories and learnt lots of new facts. We had a go at making Stone Age houses using bamboo sticks and materials. It was very hard as the sticks kept falling down. We then sat in a circle and looked at different Stone Age tools and weapons; we could even see the thumb prints on them. 

 

We also made our very own paintbrushes inspired by Stone Age people. We collected sticks from outside and attached hay, feathers or wool to them. We then worked with Natalie to create our own pieces of art work; using natural paints.

Cave Making

We have recently been learning about Stone Age homes. We know that during the first period of Stone Age many families lived in caves. Therefore, we have decided to make our own. We used shoe boxes and stuck newspaper onto them. We then paper mached them and painting them.

Today we looked at what Stone Age people ate. We had feces from Stone Age and had to look and see what they actually ate. We found out that they eat:

  • Vegetables
  • Oats/wheat
  • Fish (and the bones)
  • Meat
  • Fruit
  • Seeds

In topic, we have been creating our own volcanoes! We had to assemble them using bottles, paper and masking tape. We then painted them using greens, browns and greys for the volcano. We then used red, orange and yellow for the lava and green for the grass at the bottom. We had so much fun making them.

 

On Wednesday 12th December, we got to explode them. We did have some technical issues as the bottles that we had used were TOO big! But we did try our hardest!

On Thursday 18th October we had the Eco Bus visit us. The eco bus is  a mobile environmental classroom that will help educate children and adults about their local environment and help keep waste levels down and recycling levels up in Sandwell. We completed a quiz all about recycling, looking at what could and couldn't be recycled. We Were split into 2 groups; and within our little groups we split into boys and girls. We completed a quiz and the boys won both times (They had so much knowledge)!!!

On Wednesday 10th October, we participated in World Mental Health Awareness Day.

We all came to school dressed in green and took part in a range of activities on the afternoon.

We looked at positive and negative words and how hurtful words can effect someone. We then chose 1 person in the class and wrote positive things about them. We also looked at a hot air balloon! We put ALL the things that make us happy at the top and the things made us sad in the sandbags. We worked really well. 

 

**********************************************************************************************************************

On Monday 17th September, we completed a range of activities all linked to Healthy Schools Week!

One activity that we really enjoyed was 'What makes us happy?'. Even though we need lots of exercise, fruit and vegetables- we also need to make sure we are happy.

We created people that represented us and within them we drew pictures of everything makes us happy! Miss Hamer has put them up on a wall in our classroom, so whenever we feel down, we can look and see what makes us happy.

For hook day,  we all dressed up in clothes that were blue and green and completed amazing art activities.

This really helped us to get excited about what we will be learning about in our Topic lessons. We looked at how we can save our environment and tried to recreate volcano pictures.

 

We created some fantastic pieces of art work and used new techniques. We also looked at how we can help reduce, reuse and recycle everyday items! We have had a fabulous day!!
