World Book Day
On Thurday 2nd March we joined in with World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book characters. From the Gruffalo to Paddington Bear, we paid tribute generations of famous books. We were also fortunate to be visited by Senior Librarian for the School Library service, Mr Paul Dorney. As well as delighting the children with a range of his favourite books, Mr Dorney also read his own book.
Focusing on weight and measure, the children made their own pancakes. We weighed one egg and matched the weight with flour and milk. Everyone took turns to add ingredients and mix the mixture. We added our favourite toppings and spent time enjoying a special treat together.
As part of our topic for 'Dinosaur Planet', we created our own volcanic landscapes for our Dinosaurs to live in. Using papermache and card to create 3D landscapes, we tried to replicate the Earths surface when dinosaurs roamed the planet. We completed them with paint.
Do Cows Drink Milk?
We have started to look at how plants grow. To track the progress of our plants we have begun a plant diary. So far we have put out seeds in water with paper towels so we can watch them germinate. We hope to have an update on our plants soon.
Do Cows Drink Milk?
We began our topic on Monday the 20th of February by designing and opening our Farm Shop. As well as fresh eggs and milk from the farm, the children have designed menu items to serve to customers. To help our visitors choose we have created posters for the walls of our shop.
We recently enjoyed looking at the Chinese Zodiac and finding which animal represents our own year of birth. We enjoyed lots of activities and even had the opportunity to learn how to use chopsticks.
On Friday the 10th of June we welcomed The Education Group back to Sherington CofE School along with our friends from St Andrews CofE School!
We started the day with an exciting and interesting assembly showcasing the countries taking part in the day, including all of the flags of chosen nations.
Then we enjoyed taking part in traditional dances from around the world and took part in our very own opening ceremony!
We have recently enjoyed a visit form the company Bugtopia! We are all learning about minibeasts through our topics 'Why Do Lady Birds Have Spots?' in Sparrows and 'Our Local Habitat' in Robins and Owls. Along with an opportunity to come face to face with these fascinating creatures, we were taught lots of interesting facts. A great opportunity to learn and share together!
While looking at farm animals in our 'Do Cows Drink Milk?' Unit, we enjoyed reading the story of the Little Red Hen. One sunny day we filmed a little rap about the book. We chose our own costumes and worked hard to make our voices clear and loud enough to be filmed.
We hope you enjoy it!
As part of our 'Land Ahoy' unit we enjoyed finding out about Pirates and all of the interesting things they did. We learned about history, travel at sea and imagined a life of adventure! It was a fun topic, so ere are some pictures from our morning playing Pirate Golf with our friends.
