Welcome to Melbourne Class
In RE we have been learning about Christianity. We visited Titmuss Baptist Church where we discovered more about the Christmas story. During the visit we also enjoyed singing Christmas songs and playing games.
We created Christingles during one of our RE lessons and found out why each piece is symbolic. To create our Christingle we used oranges, dried fruit, red ribbon, cocktail sticks and candles.
Our focus text for English is ‘A Bear Called Paddington’. During the autumn term, we have had lots of fun delving into this text. We enjoyed giving verbal instructions for our own made up games. Another activity that we really enjoyed was making bread for Paddington to enjoy with his marmalade! Across the week, we learnt the features of instructions, how to give verbal instructions and how to write clear, concise instructions.
Last half term, we enjoyed learning all about the circus. This topic provided us with many fantastic, cross curricular opportunities. As part of our learning we experienced a Circus Workshop. During the workshop, we were able to learn a variety of circus skills. These skills have been demonstrated within our own circus performance. As you can see, this was great fun! We also made our own circus equipment.
During our science lessons, we have been exploring Everyday Materials and Their Uses. As part of this area, we have had opportunities to investigate a range of materials practically. We have learnt how to predict, carry out an experiment, record our observations and ask/answer our own questions.
