Autumn 2

Week 4


This week we have continued our topic of snow and ice by designing and making our own tasty and very cold snow cones.  We made our cone first by cutting out a circle shape and making a cut up the middle.  After that we decorated the cones.  To make the snow one we added some warm water and ice to a blender.  It took a while but finally the ice began to melt and went slushy.  We shared the slush into our cones and added some tasty strawberry syrup.  They were delicious! 

Week 3


This week is Anti-bullying week. To start the week of celebrating our differences we all came to school wearing odd socks.  We listening to Andy and the Odd Socks sing a song about this years theme "One Kind Word".  We had lots of fun dancing and singing along with our balloons.  Afterwards we designed and made our own odd sock puppet.  It was lots of fun.

Today we had lots of fun playing with the ice that we made on Friday.  We watched the ice melt and release the animals we had frozen inside. We told some of our friends all about our ice experiment and they then decided to put a tub f ice on the radiator to help release the creature more quickly.

As part of our snow and ice topic we practised our scissor skills by making paper snowflakes.  We learnt that no two snowflakes are ever the same.  Do you remember how to make them? Click on the link below and get creative.

Week 2


This week we have started our new topic “ice and snow”.  We became super scientists and explored how we can make ice by freezing water.  Once the water had frozen we learnt about melting. We experimented which conditions melted the ice the quickest by putting containers of ice on the radiator, outside and on the table.  We learnt that the warmer the conditions the quicker the ice melts.  We handled blocks of ice and described how it felt.  We can’t wait to learn more about the artic region and the animals that live there. 

In PE this week we explored jumping.  Firstly we practised how to jump safely by bending your knees when you land.  We also learnt that if you use your arms this can help you to jump further or higher.  After mastering jumping safely we transferred these skills onto the apparatus.  We practised travelling and jumping off safely. 

On Friday we learnt about Remembrance Day. We now know that Poppy Day is a special day to remember all the brave soldiers that have fought in war.  We watched the video “poppies” on CBeebies. This beautiful animation shows war as experienced by animals in the battlefield.  Afterwards we painted poppies.

Welcome back everyone!  I hope you have all enjoyed your half term break with lots of fun and laughter.  This week we will be learning all about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot.  We will learn the importance of staying safe on Bonfire Night.


We created colourful firework pictures using PVA glue, salt and paint. First we had to squeeze the glue into our firework shapes and then we poured salt all over our pictures.  Once the glue had dried we watched the paint spread and mix to create an explosion of colour. 

We continued to create firework using bright coloured sand. We made different patterns, shapes and lines in the sand.  We even made edible fireworks which tasted delicious. 

We celebrated Diwali by creating rangoli patterns using puffy paint on CDs and using different shaped dried pasta. We learnt all about the festival of light and made mhendi patterns on prints hands.  

One family, growing together in love and faith, flourishing in an ever-changing world. We love, we believe, we shine, we achieve.
