We have really enjoyed creating our sculptures. We explored how wet sand can be shaped and moulded to form a variety of sea creatures and castles. We were very lucky to have one of our parents bring in an amazing sculpture of a horse created by him using metal.

 ICT we have been using search engines to research different seaside locations in the U.K. We have found out about popular seaside towns such as Margate in Kent, Bournemouth in Dorset and Tenby in Wales. We also discovered that some beaches have lifeguards, some beaches have donkeys and some still have traditional entertainment such as Punch and Judy.

In design technology, we have been planning a 'cold dish' and a 'hot dish'. For our 'cold dish' we had a choice of preparing a fruit salad, or a salad. We then planned our dish by deciding on the fruits or salad we would use and the utensils we would need. We also had to consider safety when

preparing food. It was great fun and some of us tried fruits that we had not tasted before. We would love to make a fruit salad at home, so let us impress you.

Berlin and Barcelona Class had a wonderful trip to Broadstairs. The sun shone for us and we had a great time splashing in the sea, making sand castles and burying each other. We also gained first hand experiences linked to a story we have been reading 'The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch', when the seagulls swooped down to eat our lunch! Mrs Wallace did a great job of scaring them away.

Welcome back!

It is so lovely to see you all after the Easter break! We all worked really hard last term and I hope after a much deserved break we are all ready and keen to work very hard this term!  Our new topic is a really fun one 'I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside' and the children already seem really enthusiastic about it- helping to create our new train book corners! With June fast approaching, when the phonics screening is taking place for your children, please make the most of your new Espresso log in and explore the phonics section in Key Stage 1 under the English section. It has video clips that show and say the sounds for you and games for the children to play to really develop their phonic skills, which in turn will help them with their reading and writing. Thank you for your continued support!

This term in maths we have been learning about fractions . We know that a fraction is part of a whole. We used resources to practically find halves and quarters.

In English this term we have focused on the features of information texts and alliteration. We have enjoyed putting together our very own information book all about the seaside and creating our alliterative poems.

 

Our science learning continues to develop our knowledge of plants and seasons. We are excited to see the seeds we planted early in spring growing well in our garden area. We are taking care of them by watering regularly and taking out the weeds.

 

RE this term has introduced us to the ways in which other faiths and religions are celebrated and we have been learning about Moses.

On Thursday 4th April Jubilee had their very own World Book Day! See which characters you can spot.

In maths this term we have been exploring measurement. We compared the length of different objects. We ordered our class mates into size order from tallest to smallest. We also explored volume and capacity - first we estimated how many cups of water a container would hold and then we poured cups of water into a range of containers to see how close we were to our estimations. We had so much fun! 

In R.E. we learnt all about the story of Jesus Christ and why Easter is such an important time for Christians all over the world. We had great fun rolling our eggs in paint and we also created some beautiful art work to express our ideas about Easter and the meaning of new life that this time of year represents.

In science we have been learning about different materials and their properties. In one of our science experiments we investigated what happens when different materials are heated. We filled a bowl with hot water, covered it in cling film and then place different food items on top. We then observed carefully to see if our predictions were correct and recorded our results.

In science this half term we have been looking at plants. We have been on a nature walk round Jubilee to see what grows in our school. We have explored different types of flowering plants including trees and have learnt about the function of each different part of a plant. To make our play area look beautiful in the spring and summer term we have started to plant bulbs and seeds in our garden area. We have learnt about how to care for plants and all the things they need to grow! With Mrs Huq's green fingers and our knowledge we hope they will bloom beautifully in the coming weeks.

In D.T. this half term we have been designing and making our own land vehicles. After designing our vehicles we painted them and then added the features. We used various tools to cut and join our axles and wheels to make our vehicles move. After completing our designs and making our products we reviewed them to see what we could improve next time. Come and take a look in class at our fabulous creations!

In English we looked at the story 'No Dinner' we role played different scenes from the story. First we pretended to be the different animals who wanted to eat the poor old woman. Then we acted out the part when the old woman ate so much food and became really fat!
