Little Steps, Big Aspirations For All

Class 12 Autumn 1

Our topic for this half term is

'Disney's good versus evil'

We will be looking at the different characters in the stories and what makes them kind and what makes them unkind alongside some fun activities associated with the stories. 

The Little Mermaid

We have been super busy this week.

We collected Ariel's treasure from the water and then counted and added how many we found.

We made underwater shaped biscuits in cookery.

Had a fantastic visit to the beach, but we could not find Ariel. 

We made our own bath bombs in science, recorded how we made them and then watched what happened when we put one in water, it fizzed and bubbled, it dissolved and turned the water pink. We are bring our own home so we can have a fun bath over the weekend.

We composed our own sentences about our favourite part of the story and then typed it on our new chromebooks. We drew an illustration to go with our typed work. 

We made a sentence from the story using colourful semantics and symbols.  We then answered 'who', 'what doing', 'what' and 'where' questions using our sentence strip to help us.

We had great fun playing games including, cat and mouse, sleepy bear and chase the tail.    

We made our own mermaids using a repeating pattern and then made light and dark blue to paint the deep blue sea for her to swim in.

The Jungle Book

We have had a great first week, we have all been settling in well and have been getting to know our new class, meeting our new friends and learning our new class rules and routines. 

We have made our own reward charts choosing our own favourite picture to put on our tokens.  We made a list of ways we can gain a token, such as being kind to our friends, sharing, trying hard and trying our best. We are delighted that everyone has earned all their tokens and got a dip in the prize box.

We have enjoyed listening to the story about The Jungle Book, we have chatted about and sorted characters into who is nice and who is not nice and thought about what makes them nice and not nice.

We made some great bubble snakes in science and recorded the sequence of how we did it. We made cheese straw snakes in cookery.

We have played maths games together - which was great fun and learned how to use our new counting boards 'say it, 'make it', write it. We all did really well. 

We made some excellent spiral snakes and painted leaves by mixing our own light and dark green paint.

Wow what a great first week!
