Term 4 Pond dipping

In science we have been learning all about life cycles so we visited our school pond to see a lifecycle in action. We discovered lots of frogspawn as well as some very friendly frogs!  We will be observing the frogspawn over time to see how it changes as the lifecycle progresses.

Term 4 Forest School

Atlantis have been out exploring our forest area, working in teams to create a 3D piece of art.

Term 4 Science

This week was science week. We have been making our own lava lamps using water, oil and effervescent tablets.

Term 4 Science

As part of our Science Week investigations we made origami frogs in difference sizes or out of different materials. We then tested these to see which ones hopped the furthest. Recording our findings in a table and then on a graph. At the end of the week we create bottle rockets to observed the reaction between vinegar and bicarbonate of soda.

Term 4 Forest School

Atlantis have been exploring the forest area and pond dipping.  We have been studying some of the frog spawn we found and are observing closely to watch for changes.

Term 3: Drawing

We have been developing our drawing skills so that we can combine drawing and collage for our final pieces of work.  We considered how we could use line drawing, shading, smudging and pointillism to show shape and movement.  

It took a lot of perseverance to get them to a stage we were happy with but we are so proud of the outcomes.

Term 3: The Water Cycle

We have created our own water cycles so that we can observe the water cycle in action. 

Term 3: The Water Cycle

Atlantis have created 3D models to share their knowledge and understanding of the water cycle with others.

Term 2: End Outcome

Atlantis applied their ICT and history skills to create their own powerpoints about World War I. Try out the hyperlinks in our presentations to find the area you would like to learn more about.

RE reflections: What kind of King is Jesus?

What was life like in the trenches?

We have been finding out about life in the trenches inspired by Keith Campion’s book, The Last Post and artefacts kindle lent to us by Kingswood Heritage Museum.

We sent our writing to the author of The Last Post, Keith Campion. He was kind enough to read through it and sent us this lovely response. 

Atlantis Christmas Performance

Atlantis worked hard to prepare a brilliant virtual Christmas Performance of ‘Who took all the Loo Roll’ and shared it with parents via class dojo.

This week we have been completing the Joe Wicks Children in Need 5 minute move every day so that we can start the day active happy and raring to learn.

November 2020

Atlantis and Endeavour walked to Warmley War Memorial. Both classes read poems and facts about Remembrance Day then held a minutes silence. They also had chance to explore the memorial gardens and look at the names of those recorded on the memorial for WW1, our topic this term. We laid a wreath of poppies, made by the children, on the memorial from St Barnabas.

Please view some photos and video of the Remembrance Events.
