Rainbow Room

When we had finished drawing our pictures we then used clay to copy the shape of the leaves we had drawn. We used modelling tools to outline the shape. We added the veins to the leaves using a modelling tool. Then we had to leave the clay to dry.
Picture 1
Picture 2
We have all chosen a leaf to focus on. We have drawn the leaf paying attention to the detail and colour of the leaf. We have researched the leaves we found and the majority have come from a tree called 'The Maple Tree'.  We have learnt why leaves fall from the trees in Autumn and change colour. It is because the tree controls and cuts off the water supply to the leaves during  the Autumn months.  The leaves then start to die. They change colour and drop from the trees.

As part of our English topic work we are focussing on Autumn. We have had a walk around the school grounds and looked at different leaves. We collected some and then used the internet to identify which trees they have fallen from.

We have been learning about how busy garden birds are during Spring. We have watched a video about how birds make nests. We have looked at some examples of birds nests that were possibly made last Spring. Then we had a go at making our own. We have used some natural materials we found outside as well as some manmade materials.

We discussed all the different things in a kit that helps us when we have had a small accident. We then made a Friendship First-Aid Kit using ideas we discussed from a First- Aid Kit.

SPRING TERM 2016

We are starting our new topic work about 'Life Cycles'. Life cycles are the reproduction process of any living thing. This week we are looking and learning about a butterfly's life cycle. The life cycle starts with an egg. We learnt that butterflies lay their eggs on plants, underneath leaves. We drew a leaf and a butterfly egg and then looked at different materials we could use to make a leaf and an egg. When we had chosen our materials we labelled our diagram and made the first part of the life cycle for our display board outside the Rainbow Room.

Picture 1 We also wrote some facts about caterpillars.
Picture 2 We looked at the different materials we could use.
Picture 3 We labelled our diagram showing the materials.

We did some role play and visited the shop to help us understand the value of money. We paid for items and then had to go away and use our subtraction skills to make sure we had been given the correct change.
Picture 1 We all started with £5.00 and bought one item.
Picture 2 We worked out if we had the correct change.

As part of our English lesson the children had to be able to identify the key feature of a newspaper. Examples were brought in and the children looked at the layout of a front cover. We discussed the Logo - the children then designed their own. We looked at the Masthead and the children made up their own information. They were then asked to produced a cover story for their front cover about a famous celebrity of their choice coming to Hornsea to open the Hornsea Market. They had to think about how the people of Hornsea may feel if a celebrity came to Hornsea. They had to think about quotes from the Hornsea people as they waited for their celebrity to arrive. Quotes their famous celebrity may have said about the market. They completed their story by adding a photograph that tells what is happing in their story. They created this using a programme called Kar2ouch in the computer suite. Next the children had to look at another story for their front cover. They had to write down all the things they were good at or enjoyed doing. They chose one activity and then had to produce a story about how Hornsea Community Primary School had identified them as a Star for their achievement/skill/quality. We took a photograph of them holding props to back up their article.
