Lion Class 2020-2021

Welcome to Lion Class.

This term we are learning about Castles. We will have P.E. on a Tuesday afternoon and Forest School on a Friday afternoon. 

Forest School Week 

 

We have had an amazing Forest School Week both in school and at home! We have completed a range of Science, Forest School and Art lessons which were all to do with nature and the out doors. 

Week 6

 

What another fantastic week we had at school and at home. This week we used our knowledge of division to help us find a fraction of a number. This was quite tricky, but I am so pleased with how well everyone did. I saw lots of responsible Kangas and Tiggers in Maths this week!  

In Literacy, we looked at instructional writing. We recapped all we knew and then used this to help us write a set of instructions about a game we could teach children in WW2. Lots of you chose duck, duck goose and stuck in the mud. 

Everyone at Marnel wishes you a safe and happy half term! Don't forget the first week back is Forest School week. We will be completing some Science, Art and Forest School activities. I can't wait, it'll be a fantastic week! 

Home Learning 

 

This week we have had another fantastic week of learning at school and at home! In Literacy we have been looking at a recount as some aliens landed in school last week and wanted to learn more about what we do on earth. In Maths we have been learning about division by using the sharing circle method and in our maths meetings we have been recapping symmetry. We have all had a fantastic week; keep up the hard work Lion class. 

Week 3 

 

We have had another brilliant week in school and doing home learning. This week we were taking away using a number line and in Literacy we were writing the story of Cinderella in the perspective of the glass slipper! Take a look at some of the super work below that we have done. 

We have had another fantastic week of learning at home and at school. Keep up the hard work Lions. I am one very proud teacher!

What a wonderful Science Week we have all had both at school and at home. Well done Lions.

We had a great last day before Christmas! We went on a tinsel trail which lead us to Santa and enjoyed a picnic with our friends.

We loved tree rubbing, painting and bird watching in Forest School this week. Forest School is Lion Class' favourite lesson!

On Friday it was Medieval Day! We loved coming to school dressed up and we enjoyed lots of activities that they would have done in the past.

Over the last few weeks, we have created our own castle pictures. First of all, we mixed our own paints to create a sunset background. Then we used different materials to collage a moat and a hill for our castle to sit on. Finally we drew, cut out and stuck our castle onto our picture. We are so proud of our artwork!

This week in History, we pretended to be spies for Lord Fuddy Duddy. He wanted us to spy on a local castle and retrieve features of this castle. We drew the castle for him and identified the exterior features.

This week in arts week, we have been looking at the theme circus. Today we made our own spiral artwork using crayons, felt tips and paper plates.

This week we have been looking at measure. We really enjoyed measuring objects around the classroom using rulers.

Last week we practised drawing lines, shapes, forms and texture using our sketch pencils. We noticed that if we pressed harder, the line would be darker. We then used this to support us in drawing our own castles. Here are some of our amazing sketches.
