## Spring Term

At the start of the Spring term, we found ourselves in another national lock down.
Take a look below at all of the learning that has been taking place in school and at home.
Polly has been busy supporting her mum cooking at home - at great life skill to learn.
Harvey has been working extremely hard whilst learning from home. He has completed a range of different tasks. Well done Harvey!
Isabella has been investigating lava, enjoying time outside and keeping busy with a range of tasks. Isabella's smile shows us she's been having lots of fun!
Darcy and Lola used the beautiful map on their bedroom wall to help them with their geography task. They have been keeping busy with their mum, dad and grandma.
Zainab used a recipe she read from a book and baked these delicious treats. They look too good to eat!
James made a robot out of lego and also completed his lava investigation. Great job James!
Macie carefully set up her lava experiment and has been enjoying making home made pizza.
Robyn and Lily-Mae worked together to solve multiplication calculations using cubes to support their learning.
Hannah, Elsa and Robyn concentrated really hard to find countries on a map to help them locate volcanoes.
The children enjoyed having the playground to themselves to explore and play in the snow. It was so much fun!
Dominik had a go an recreating the  'Walking Man' by Alberto Giacometti and used an atlas to locate volcanoes in different countries.
Mrs Marsden set the children a task to recreate the  'Walking Man' by Alberto Giacometti. Take a look at these fantastic drawings.
Fun in the snow!
Linking in with our class text - Dinosaur Cove, Kiani shared pictures of his his Lego dinosaurs.
We designed buildings that would be safe in the event of an earthquake.
Macie has been enjoying cooking, enjoying an Italian date night with her sister and making a snow chair!
Mrs Marsden set the children a task to draw their own Iron Man robot. Here is what the children produced.
Archie has enjoyed exploring and exhausting himself on a 2 hour muddy walk. He has also enjoyed investigating shadows and said, ''We found out that when the light higher the shadow gets smaller and when the light gets lower the shadow gets bigger.''
James has linked maths to his science investigation on shadows. Well done James the sun!
Jude has been investigating light and shadows. He used resources at home to help him and recorded some great results.
This week in English, the children have been designing and describing their own dinosaurs. Look at the fantastic writing and creations they have produced.
In RE we have been thinking about which groups or communities we belong to and made a poster to represent this.
For Children's Mental Health week, the children chose an activity to complete in a relaxed space with another person in their home to talk about their feelings. Here are some of the activities the children completed.
We have been researching information on our chosen dinosaur to help us to write a non chronological text. Look at these fabulous reports!
We created posters for Safer Internet Day. We know how to stay safe online.
Harvey has been working really hard and has handwritten most of his Google Classroom tasks!
Mrs Marden set the children an Art task around the theme of hearts as Valentine's Day is approaching. Hearts also tie in with our school ethos of kindness and caring for one another.
The children wrote a poem using the instructions from the poetry machine to help them set it out. They used nouns, adjectives, similes and verbs. They children really love impressing us!
Macie has been using different methods to solve multiplication calculations. Here she is working out the calculations using the base 10 method.
We have been investigating the hardness of rocks in our science lesson this week.
