Exploring Our Senses
In science, we have been exploring our five senses. We used our touch sense to help us to describe hidden objects to our group. The coloured film allowed us to explore our sight and how it can be changed by a lens. We used the instruments to explore sound, although some of us were more keen to make loud sounds than others were to hear them! Our sense of smell was put to the test with coffee, vanilla, cinnamon and curry paste, many of us preferred the smell of vanilla. Finally, we tested our taste buds, exploring the taste of raspberries and blueberries.
We were very lucky this week, when one of our talented Year 6 students came into our classroom to teach us about his guitar and how it is played. Joe then played us two tunes that he had been practising over the Summer holidays. We loved listening to Joe’s music and we can’t wait for him to visit us again!
We have been learning to use positional language
This week we have been reading the story ‘We’re Going On a Bear Hunt’. We went on our own bear hunt today and Mrs Gaylard led us through the door, down the corridor, through the arch and over the bridge until we eventually found a bear in his den.
We carried the bear back to the classroom where he read the story to himself.
Welcome to Pine Class
The children have had a great start to Pine Class. Every child has returned to school looking amazing in their smart uniform and ready to work hard. Thank you to all of our wonderful parents for preparing us for our new school year.
The first week has been very busy, we have shared lots of laughter, lots of fun and plenty of learning too. Here are a few pictures of us enjoying our learning this week.
