Week 3 -  9th March

This week we have been looking at structures.

We looked at bridges as a structure – looking at local bridges such as the Tyne and  Sunderland Bridges. The children had guesses of different types of bridges. They then drew some of their favourite bridges.

We have continued with weighing activities such as putting shopping in bags and seeing which was the heaviest and lightest. We looked at how we read the scales by finding how many grams objects where when we weighed them.

We listened to the story of the Lighthouse Keepers Lunch and talked about where we would find  lighthouses. We talked about pulleys and how food and things got across from house to lighthouse

 We planned a healthy lunch for Mr Grinling and discussed good food and not so good food. We made a paper plate of good food for the lighthouse keeper.

We made a lighthouse using different media.

Week 4 – 16th March

This week we have celebrated St Patrick’s Day – Patron Saint of Ireland. The children enjoyed watching Let’s Celebrate – Cbeebies – The Story of St Patrick and how the children in Ireland celebrate in school and with their families. We made a leprechaun using card and our cutting skills.

We heard the story about the Leprechaun and his adventure in Ireland and we answered questions using who , what.


We made a mobile using a paper plate and picture objects of things to do with Ireland.

We sequenced the story of St Patrick and made a map of Ireland putting symbols of Irish objects such as clover, sheep and rainbows.

 We finished our weighing activities and were introduced positioning and direction.

We played a practical game following instruction to position our arms forward, walk backwards etc

We did a position activity using language of under, over, beside as we placed different objects in different positions.

In cookery we made Shamrock biscuits, using the scales to weigh our ingredients.

We used Purple Mash to design a St Patrick’s Day Poster, using symbols of Ireland and using the mouse to create our posters

 We enjoyed painting ‘a pot of gold ‘  to finish our week of learning about St Patrick

On Friday we saw our last day in school due to the Coronavirus

Stay safe everyone and see you soon
