This week our new book has been Simon Sock by Sue Hendra. We have looked at the different characters in the story and chosen effective adjectives for each one by adding different suffixes.
In DT we have designed and created a sock friend for Simon. Next week we will be using our socks in our own story writing.
Today we have been discussing how we stay healthy and the importance of good hygiene. In our science teams we want to prove to Year 1 and reception that germs are everywhere and how they spread. We have set up an investigation to see what happens to bread after we have covered it with our germs! We enjoyed sharing our germs!…..
What a fantastic trip we have had today at Bring Yer Wellies! As usual Jets were on their best behaviour and blew Melissa and Nigel away with their fantastic knowledge of habitats. It was great exploring the different habitats and explaining why it was the ideal habitat for different animals.
The afternoon was great fun racing our boats and den building. Have a look at our day…...
Well done Jets as usual Mrs Baird and Miss Curwen were super proud of you xx
On Friday we had a lovely visit from a real life author! This year we had the privilege of reading Lizzie and the Birds by Dawn and Mick Robertson, before it was even published! We produced some fantastic work that we sent to Dawn, she was so impressed she wanted to meet us. Now the book has been published she returned to school to give us a signed copy! We got to ask her lots of question and she asked us lots too.
Dawn has inspired us to write a sequel for her….
We are so happy with our homemade felt. Today we have sewn details onto our templates to create our own birds.
We then used the brusho techniques we learned on Monday to create colourful backgrounds. We enjoyed exploring colour mixing and working with warm and cold colours.
Tomorrow we get to put it all together. Have a look at some of our highlights..
Another busy day colour mixing for our butterflies that are going to be part of our whole school display. He tried to see who could make the most shades of green, then used our shades to decorate our individual butterflies. Next we thought about different patterns and techniques to create patterns. We are sure they are going to look great displayed.
What a busy 2 days we have had in Jets. Yesterday we had fun exploring and experimenting with brusho and pastels to create interesting backgrounds. We loved the new colours we made by mixing. We then went outside looking at the trees before we drew our own trees using ink onto the brusho backgrounds. Finally we turned them into cherry blossom trees by mixing shades of pink and using cotton buds.
Today we have been working with Isobel, we have made our own felt! It was so much fun and so easy! Again we have loved the colours we have made by mixing.
Wait until you see what we are going to use our felt for……..
Our last day at Dobroyd, action packed right up to the end! Dungeon, quest, night line, giant swing and crate challenge all completed before lunch.
After saying our final ‘Well dones’ and ‘Thank yous’ we enjoyed our walk back to the coach park along the canal – tired, happy and very proud of ourselves.
Well done Year 4 you were awesome and as usual, you did us proud.
We know how to celebrate birthdays at Dobroyd Castle – a quest, archery, trapeze, piranha pool, crate challenge and climbing. Happy birthday Riley, we loved celebrating with you!
Another super day; brilliant sunshine, lots of team building and birthday celebrations with the super Riley! All now tucked up in bed after hot chocolate and birthday cake.
See you all tomorrow afternoon after our last action packed morning…..
