Welcome to Panda Class
Our current topic is 'OH, I DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE...' We will be researching different holiday destinations and finding out what British seaside holidays were like in the past. We will work together to complete a 'big art' beach scene and try to tempt people on holiday with a Panda Class travel brochure! We will write and perform some sea-themed poems and songs; and consider ways to stop plastic pollution in our oceans.
All we need now is some sunshine...
Our last topic was 'Dragons and Castles'. We read a range of stories featuring dragons, made puppets of the characters and performed puppet shows. We also turned 'Zog' into a comic strip and made some Dragon Top Trumps!
We had lots of fun making model castles. We joined boxes and tubes to make castle shapes, got messy with papier mache and then painted them. We even made working drawbridges!
Our Spring 1 topic was 'Mr. Men and Little Miss' and was based on the books by Roger Hargreaves. We wrote our own stories, created animations, designed our own characters and even made our own plush toys! We also had a 'Mr Men' and 'Little Miss' Costume Competition!
Quiz Question - How many of these characters can you name?
Have a look at some of our magnificent Mr Men work! We have been achieving amazing things in school and at home.
We have been exploring materials and their properties.
We have described different 'Mr Men' and 'Little Miss' characters and made up some of our own! We have written stories about them and created story books combining text, pictures, sound and animation.
DT and Art
We have been working on our sewing skills, both in school and at home! We have designed our own 'Mr Men' and 'Little Miss' plush toys and looked at Pointillism in our art lessons.
We have been working on place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication. We are smashing our times tables!
Here are some of the things we enjoyed in the autumn term!
