Welcome to Hamptworth Class Blog!
We are enjoying our new reading corner.
We had an informative visit to the Gurdwara Nanaksar today. It gave us first hand experience of Sikh practices and beliefs.
Today we used drama to help us prepare to write effective dialogue in English. We also had the first of our music workshops, learning songs for the Planets concert on March 31st.
Today we dressed down or dressed up to help raise money for animals in Australia who have been effected by the recent wildfires. We have chosen as a school to represent Wildlife Warriors. During our lessons we looked at aboriginal art and created our own versions. We found out that it takes lots of patience!
This afternoon the whole class enjoyed our Silver reading area in the classroom. We want to say a BIG thank you to the PTA for providing us with new beanbags to sit on to help us enjoy reading even more!
Hamptworth class have created fantastic projects all about the different counties for their home learning. I have learnt a lot of new information! They have done a fantastic job at researching at home! - Great Job!
We enjoyed getting hands on with clay to help re create our own interpretation of a frogs life cycle.
We are currently writing scripts to go with our models to create a video!
We have been researching the life cycles of mammals and birds and comparing them.
Some of our class enjoyed their lunchtime club, drawing caricatures!.
Today in Maths, we were investigating the different ways in which we could show the answer to 6 x 4. we managed to use lots of different equipment. We also went outside to explore 'factors' of numbers using the PE dots.
Today the whole school got together for one of our Big Story Days. Our class joined with Year 2. We had to discuss what the term 'Epiphany' meant. We had lots of fun describing why the star was important in the story of Jesus' birth. We also learnt about John the Baptist. He baptised people to help give them a fresh start. We thought about how our school value of 'hope' linked in with this.
Happy New Year!
We will be starting our new topic 'Vacation or STAY-cation?'
Christmas making day! We have enjoyed making 'pom pom hats'! The children had great patience to produce the final product! Some of the children were planning on giving their teddies at home new head wear!
In English we have been creating mnemonics to help us remember the order of the planets from the sun.
It was rather wet and cold for our time in the forest. We managed to decide the sizes of planet and then put them into order from the sun. we also used toilet paper to help us see how far away planets were from the sun. Each piece of toilet paper represented 16 million kilometers! Wow!
We had the task to design a new spacesuit. We thought about the essential features that we would need for an astronaut to survive but also added some fun features!
