Summer 2- Madagascar/ Italy Gallery

British Values focus morning- Last Tuesday we spent the morning looking at each of the 5 British Values and how we represent them in School and which parts of CHIRP they also link to. We then took the discussion further to think about what our lives would be like if we didn't have each of the values

Last week each class took part in a computing day, learning about different aspects of computing through various activities- including cryptography and coding robots to name a few!

During our workshop with Phunky foods we learnt about how to prepare food safely and were able to make our own Italian Bruschetta which we all agreed was deliziosa

We have been busy investigating the chronology of the History of Flight, starting with the Wright Brothers in 1903 and then thinking about present day arircraft. We have also made connections between what has changed across that time too.

We had an amazing time with our visitor from the Woodland Adventure Company. We learnt a lot about how to identify trees and learnt how to make wands from parts of a tree too before doing some experiments with natural materials.

After learning about animals native to Madagascar have adapted to their habitats, we had a creative art session inventing our own rainforest animal- labelling how they have adapted to live in the rainforest.

National School Sports week- We had the opportunity to take part in a sport we have never tried before, this was throwing golf! We had great fun whilst refining our skills of over arm and under arm throwing.

This week (20th June) we have learnt how to read and write numbers to 10 and some farm animals in Malagasy! We were rather excited to learn the other language native to Madagascar, as we also learn French weekly too.

In Geography we had an exciting lesson interpreting a map of Scarcroft Green and plotting all of the living and non-living aspects using agreed symbols. We also plotted the compass directions of North, South, East and West onto our maps too.

We have been looking at the story Greta and the Giants and made placards with sentences to persuade the Giants to stop ruining the forest.

To start our topic we drew an animal native to the country of Madagascar- The Ring Tailed Lemur. Here are some of our amazing pieces.
