Welcome to Pippin Class 2019 - 2020.
Autumn 2 - Superheroes
In RE we have been exploring Diwali. We have looked at the story of Rama and Sita as well as exploring what it means to be lucky and thinking of welcoming in the new year.
We have made diva lamps to help welcome visitors into our classroom.
Finally we held our own Diwali celebrations where we tried different Indian food, wore traditional clothes and made Diwali cards.
We welcomed Angus the cockerpoo to spend the afternoon with us on Monday.
We looked at everything he needs to keep him happy and healthy. He showed us his bed, food, car harness, his favourite toys and brushes.
We took him outside so that he could show us his tricks and how fast he is catching a ball.
Pippin Class 2018 - 2019.
Summer 2 - Beachcombers.
Bright Lights, Big City.
Hop on board a big, red bus and head for England’s capital. Yes, that’s right, we’re on our way to London!
This half term, we’ll take tea with the Queen and visit Buckingham Palace online. Using maps and research, we’ll locate Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time to the Great Fire of London and to famous London landmarks, as well as giving us an understanding of what it’s like to live in a big city. We’ll write adventure stories, take a virtual trip to London Zoo and make souvenirs for tourists.
Spring 2 - 'Muck, mess and mixtures'.
This half term, we’ll have a messy morning to investigate mixtures, from paint and toothpaste to jelly and shaving foam.
We’ll enjoy the story of George’s Marvellous Medicine and write recipes, leaflets, lists and stories of our own. We’ll use our science skills to explore everyday materials, investigate soap products and understand why mixtures freeze and melt.
We’ll taste a wide variety of foods, learn about healthy eating and follow recipes to make some yummy treats including pizza and ice cream! Our artwork will also rely on our mixing skills. We’ll use marbling inks to make unusual patterns, create food landscapes inspired by Carl Warner, paint with ice cubes, model clay into exciting shapes and use a variety of materials to make mixed media collages.
At the end of our project, we’ll turn our classroom into a gallery and invite you to view our exhibition. We’ll arrange images from the project into a PowerPoint presentation and demonstrate our messy science investigations. We’ll also design and create our very own mud kitchen to play in. Yuck!
In English we have been following recipes to make things from Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipe book.
