Welcome to Tokyo Class
Spring Term 1
This term we have been reading a book called Krindlekrax. It is a great story about becoming a hero.
In Tokyo class, each of us are becoming heroes – step by step. We have been playing listening games and managing our anger much more effectively. As a group we have focussed a lot this term on coming together and found interesting ways to express our friendship toward one another.
In science, we have been looking at magnets and when and how they attract or repel one another – along with discovering what a force actually is.
We have been learning to play the recorder as an entire ensemble! 28 children. 28 recorders. One big sound. We do love making music.
So far this year, we’ve already completed some really exciting learning.
We’ve read the Firework Maker’s Daughter, acted out scenes from the book and made some 3D maps that traced the journey of the central character. During science, we have learned how light changes direction and can cast a shadow – we even created a light box and performed our own puppet adventure.
We’ve also created silhouettes and made poems about firework displays.
