Throughout the year the children are guided through a series of Learning Adventures. Below is a review of the last Learning Adventure with some associated photos, ENJOY!
Spring Learning Adventure - Iceberg Right Ahead
After the Christmas holidays, the children found a message in a bottle in the playground. It was an old diary entry written by a girl called Martha. There was a piece of the diary missing so we searched the playground and found that Martha was a passenger on the Titanic. This half term we have sequenced the events of the Titanic, discovered why the Titanic was special, and looked at the differences between the 1st and 3rd class passengers as well as why the ship sank and how ships have been improved today. We ended the adventure with a very fun trip to the Titanic Museum!
In English we have been reading Kaspar the Titanic Cat. We have written adventure stories as well as fact books and instructions all about the Titanic. We have learnt lots of new skills such as past and present tense and the difference between exclamatory sentences, questions and statements.
In Maths, the children were set various tasks from Captain Edward Smith. They have been solving challenging addition and subtraction word problems using structured and unstructured number lines. They have been breaking codes from 106 years ago using problem solving skills!
In Science, we have been doing lots of experiments and investigations. The children created their own foil boats and used pennies to see how long they would float in the water. The children also played with ice to investigate how long it takes an ice cube to melt in different temperature water.
In Art the children created some incredible porthole scenes using water colours and flour in poster paint to create a textured feel.
Our RE concept this half term has been remembering through Hoi. The children learnt who Vishnu was and why Hindus remember him and how. They then designed their own Holi festival to show traditions that they thought would show how good Vishnu was.
Yet again the children have been incredibly busy but worked exceptionally hard. Thank you for the support you have given the children in their home projects.We are always amazed at the efforts!
We can’t wait to start a new and exciting adventure!
