Our class text

Drama

The children were also encouraged to use musical instruments in order to play it in the beat to the music. Another fun filled session! 

Hello Yellow

In year 1 and 2 we supported mental health day by mixing the classes and talking about the importance of keeping your mind and yourself happy and different ways to promote this. We split into three groups and had the opportunity to paint, draw, colour, join in with provision and yoga. The children listened to soothing music throughout and they all had big smiles on their faces. The children could talk about what makes them happy. 

Harvest celebrations

We have been learning all about Harvest. We have made our very own class scarecrow, acrostic poems and harvest poems. The children enjoyed listening to Reverend Catherine’s Stone Soup story linked to Harvest and impressed me with their great listening skills.

The children found out what Saltwick Nab was, we used a laptop to research it and explored Google Earth to find out where it was. The children then listened to the tale of the SS Rohilla and were encouraged to explain what had happened and how. By the end of the session the children were able to discuss where and what Saltwick Nab is and what happened to the SS Rohilla. They also built up more knowledge about google earth.

The children were encouraged to dribble their ball in order to show control. The children were then encouraged to dribble their ball around obstacles and then around their friends. They had to defend their ball from their friends and try and keep their tags. The children showed good control over their footballs and were able to dodge others in order to keep their ball and their tag. The children could use vocabulary linked to the lesson such as defend, invade and dodge.

The children were introduced to Grace Darling. They were encouraged to think why she might be significant to our topic. The children found out more information about Grace Darling, read fact files and watched videos to find out facts. The children were encouraged to create a timeline of significant events within Grace's life and then write a short fact file about her. By the end of the lesson, the children were able to say who Grace Darling was, why she was significant and why her legacy still lives on to today.

 

"Grace Darling was a lighthouse keepers daughter. She looked out of her telescope and saw a crashing boat. She went out to sea and saved 6 people. There were 60 people on the boat and she saved 9. Grace let them stay with her for 3 days. Grace was sent letters and money from the Queen. When Grace died, they created a musuem in her memory and her mum made a book" -Poppy.

The children enjoyed singing various sea related songs and using actions to link to the songs. The children looked at the next part of the story and were encouraged to get the lunch to Mr Grinling as fast as they could so the pesky seagulls could not get it. By the end of the session, the children had a better understanding of the story and how various characters may act in certain situations.

The children showed a better understanding of computers and were able to talk more confidently about them,

Art

 Miss Kilby came to teach art in Year two and this terms theme is 'Beach Huts'. The children were encouraged to look at the Beach hut picture cards and  were encouraged to think about  'Where were the photographs taken? What are the beach huts used for? What are the beach huts made from? Why are the beach huts colourful?' . The children were encouraged to describe the features of a beach hut and then begin designing their own. The children  designed their own beach huts focussing on drawing the outline and using bright colours to bring their drawings to life. 

Drama

In drama, we have been taking on the roles of Mr and Mrs Grinling as well as the seagulls from our class text The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch.

Learning Question:  How can we keep ourselves and others safe at the coast?

The children were shown different Coastal signs picture cards.  The children were encouraged to read the warnings. The children were able to identify specific dangers and we spoke about how can we keep ourselves and others safe at the coast? The children made their own warning signs and were encouraged to relate their warning signs to the coast. The children were able to discuss their warning signs clearly using language linked to warning and danger.

Engage Day: A day at the beach in Barnburgh!

The children came to school in their fabulous beach themed clothes ready to find out more about the coastline! The children found out about erosion, made boats, created shells and finished the day off with beach games! 

The children took part in an experiment which looked at coastal erosion. The children built sand castles to represent the land and used rocks as sea defences which were used to stop coastal erosion. The children worked in pairs and small teams really well and learnt some brilliant vocabulary along the way - they all had a great time!  The children showed a better understanding of erosion by the end of the session. 

The children looked at the artist Alfred Wallis, who likes to create sea related art work. Alfred is known for his colourful shells. We started by looking at shells and what patterns, textures, colours and sizes we could identify. The children carefully looked at them and then used clay to create their own design! The children were able to talk about their shells and use different tools to create a desired effect. 

The children finished their day at the beach with some fun beach games such as crazy golf, volley ball and building sandcastles with their friends. It was great to see the children taking turns and working with one another.
