Summer Term Topic - I do like to be beside the seaside!
Welcome to Barcelona Class!
This term Trinitas are holding a Poetry Slam Competition. At Jubilee in each class we had to create our own poems, Barcelona class made their poems about the seaside. In our classes we had pick a boy and girl winner to battle against the other children in KS1. We held the semi final on the stage on the field. Everyone did such a great job.
Mr Kolseth organised for us to have a scoot fit lesson this term. We all got to ride a scooter round the track going over the ramps along the course. It was such a fun way to do some exercising.
We had the Freshwater Theatre company come in to teach us all about seasides across the years. The lesson was very interactive and we all got to join in and act, dance, sing and look at many different resources it really helped us with our learning.
Mr Kolseth organised some Russian dance lessons for us this term. It was such good fun ask me to show you my best moves!
In summer term 2 we went on a trip to Broadstairs beach with Berlin class. We had such a great day! At the beach we played in the sand, made sandcastles, ate ice lollies, looked for shells and even went for a paddle in the sea. When we were at the seaside it was just like 'The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch' - the seagulls were trying to eat our lunches!!
On the way home we were a little sleepy!
This half term in Science we have been exploring plants. We went out into our outdoor environment and explored the different types of trees we have in the playground. We used plain paper and crayons do some trees rubbings to explore if the bark looked and felt different.
We celebrated the Royal wedding at Jubilee by wearing red, white and blue. We also had fish, chips and peas for lunch with some yummy iced cake with a picture of Harry and Meghan on it. In the afternoon we did some Royal party dancing and had an ice lolly and toasted the lovely couple. Did you watch the wedding at the weekend? What did you think of her dress?
This half term Mr. kolseth organised for us to have taster sessions in archery and fencing. It was such good fun!
This half term in History we have been exploring seasides in the past compared to seasides now. We learnt about the Punch and Judy show and then made our own puppets.
This half term in Art we have been exploring sculptures. We designed our own seaside themed sculptures and then we created some using sand.
Spring Term 2
At the Easter Hat Parade we had lots of fun- here are our class winners. Well done to everyone who created an Easter bonnet you all looked beautiful.
In maths we have been exploring fractions. We cut different types of food into halves and quarters.
In D.T. we have been designing vehicles. First we brainstormed vehicles and how they work. We labelled a picture of a car and all its features. After that we designed and then made our own land vehicles. They all have working wheels and axles. Last of all we evaluated our product thinking about what we liked, what we found difficult and what we would do differently next time.
Barcelona class were Dance off Champions at the dance competition this term! We have got the moves! Come to class and see our fabulous trophy!
For number day we did some maths challenges in PE. We challenged ourselves to do 10 press ups, 20 star jumps and 6 bunny hops across the bench!
Spring Term 1
For Safer Internet Day, we read the story ‘Digiducks’s BIG Decision’. This story explained to us how you must be kind to others online and should only send nice images of your friends over the internet. Here is a link to the book for you to read-
We created pictures from the story using ‘2Create a Story’ and typed an important moral/message from the story.

In Maths we were looking at measuring using till receipts. Once we had measured different parts of our bodies we compared them with each other’s to see who had the longest arms and legs on our table.
Our P.E. unit was gymnastics. We learnt all about how to move our bodies using high and low movements. We used different parts of our bodies to travel on, across, up, over and around the different P.E. apparatus.
Barcelona class are very good at gymnastics some people can do cart wheels, head rolls, splits and even the crab. We cannot wait till next term when we get to use the wall bars!
In Maths we created patterns using a variety of shapes. Can you see what types of patterns we have created?
In our English lesson we learnt how to follow instructions. We also learnt how to write instructions use time conjunctions. To end our topic of instructions we created a fruit face by following instructions. Do you like our fruity faces?
