We have had a busy final week in Canute class.
We have finished our information leaflets about keeping the planet safe - they look fantastic and are full of useful facts.
We have had a really exciting Easter egg hunt in our playground and have been thinking about why we celebrate at this time of year. We were also interested to learn about the ways in which Easter is celebrated around the world - ask your child which country celebrates easter by giving chocolate Bilbies!
Have a wonderful two weeks, stay safe.
Mrs Barnett and Mrs Chasey.
To continue our enquiry, this week in Canute we sorted through a huge pile of recyclable materials - working together to sort the objects by material. We looked at how to sort objects that were made of more than one material and discussed how they could be recycled.
We then worked in teams to make posters one for 'reduce' one for 'reuse' and the other for 'recycle'. We selected objects from our Recycling Centre (role-play corner) and decided whether we would reduce, reuse or recycle and how detailing this on our poster. The children worked very hard at this and showed great understanding of why reducing, reusing and recycling is good for the environment.
This week we also began to look for signs of spring. We listened to Vivaldi's 'spring' and went outside drawing pictures on the playground of all the things we think of when thinking about spring. Our playground looked so bright and colourful and it was wonderful to take our learning outside.
It has been a very exciting week in Canute this week. Following on from our discussions last week we have decided our enquiry question should be 'Why should we take care of the planet?'.
To begin our learning we have been exploring the Greenhouse effect and have planned and carried out an experiment to highlight the impact of greenhouse gases. All children had to make an accurate prediction, carry out the test, record the results, interpret the results and use them to generate a conclusion.
The children were all surprised that their predictions were correct and that the tray covered with cling film's ice melted first.
Well done Canute, you are all brilliant scientists!
We have had a wonderful first week back at school, the children have all settled back in very quickly and have certainly enjoyed being able to be together again.
In Maths this week some of us have been finishing our work on Money while others have been concentrating on 2d shapes.
We have also thought about our new enquiry and have decided to base our learning around the environment.
In PE we have begun a new unit on games and have really enjoyed getting out and being able to do PE outside.
In Music we have been singing and practicing keeping in time using our African Drums.
A super first week back, well done everyone!
