Zebra Class 2020-2021
Welcome to Zebra Class.
We are very excited to teach your children this year. If you have any questions please feel free to write in your child's reading diary or phone the school office where we will phone you back as soon as possible.
Be sure to check this page regularly to see what exciting things we have been up to!
A few reminders:
PE is on Wednesdays. Please make sure your child has a t-shirt, shorts and trainers/plimsolls to wear.
Forest School afternoon is on Fridays.
Library day is Wednesday. Currently we will not be visiting the library but will let you know when we are planning to restart these weekly visits.
On Friday we enjoyed Castles Day. We did lots of fun things including jousting, sewing, a medieval banquet and using quills to write letters. It was a great day and we all looked amazing in our costumes!
Children in Need!
We had lots of fun celebrating Children in Need. We came to school in our pyjamas, decorated biscuits to look like Pudsey and designed our own Pudsey bear. It was a lovely day!
Responding to music
We have been listening to lots of music and thinking about how to respond to it. Today we listened to some medieval music and drew pictures and wrote words to show what it made us think of, as well as sharing how it made us feel.
As part of our Castles topic, this week we have been learning a medieval dance. It involved us working well as a group and being brave enough to have a go!
More forest school fun!
In our final Forest School afternoon of this half term we had lots of fun on the obstacle course, the seesaw, building dens, making bird feeders and stone towers and getting messy digging for worms! All of the class (including Mrs Harmon and Mrs Hamilton!) had a lovely afternoon. :)
Continuing our Science learning, this week we have been looking at how different fabrics are made. We then had a go at weaving...it was a bit tricky but we persevered!
This week in Science we have been thinking about materials and identifying the materials that items are made of. We went on a hunt around the classroom to find things made of different materials. We even used our Computing skills to take photos of each other.
We have settled in well to Zebra class. This week we have been thinking about being part of the school community and the things we need to remember to make this a successful year!
We practised working together to make structures to represent British landmarks using straws and blu-tac. It also proved a bit tricky so we need to show lots of perseverance!
Forest School fun
We had a great first afternoon of Forest School. We enjoyed getting creative in the mud kitchen, working together to play parachute games and trying our best to make "Dragon's Breath" using the fire strikers!
