Hot Air Balloons
As part of our transport topic we have made hot air balloons. We looked at early flight, the children particularly liked watching clips of failed early flight (where nobody was harmed). We then found out that hot air balloons were the first successful flight device. We went on to find out about the Wright brothers and their first aeroplane.
Road Safety Workshop
The children in Class One enjoyed finding out about how to use our roads safely. They were learning how to cross the road safely without any distractions through physical activities.
On Monday 4th February Class One visited Tom Maughan's garage to see his classic vehicles. Tom talked about where he got the vehicles from, how he has renovated them and vehicles he has had in the past. The children asked lots of good questions, they particularly liked the tractor.
Viking Long Boats
As part of our transport topic we looked at early travel. We found out about how and why Vikings travelled. The children made and designed their own Viking long boats.
Class One have a jam filled week since coming back to school. When we got the jam out of the cupboard on the first day after the holidays we found someone had eaten it all. We all had lots of ideas about what had happened to the jam. We then found out it was Jampires so we set traps to try to catch them. The Jampires wrote a letter to say sorry for stealing our jam. They also brought us some jam doughnuts, pastry and new jam to make jam tarts. We wrote a re ice yesterday and made them today.
