Miss Griffin’s class in 2018-19

Henry VIII portrait

We sketched our own portrait of Henry VIII and used water colours to paint them as part of our arts themed week.

Leaf Dragons

This week we have been exploring instructions. In order to create our own leaf dragons we followed a set of instructions which involved collecting autumnal leaves from our outdoor learning environment.

Outdoor verb hunt and rainbow spellings.

We have thoroughly enjoyed searching for and identifying verbs in our outdoor environment as well as creating our own spelling rainbows.

Sharing stories together

This week we have thoroughly enjoyed sharing some of our favourite stories together in our wonderful library as well as in our classroom.

Science investigation

We have been investigating which material would be best to absorb the Queen's tea that has been split on the castle floor.

Lincoln Castle Trip

This week we went on our school trip to Lincoln Castle. We tried on armour, made our own shields, went on a castle walk and took part in a medieval banquet.

Primary and secondary colours

We explored primary and secondary colours in our Art learning time today. We investigated colour mixing with paint and subsequently created our own colour wheel.

Roald Dahl Day

In preparation of Roald Dahl Day we have been reading The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me. We went outdoors to celebrate Roald Dahl Day and explored the transportation of water.

Computing skills

We began our learning session by following the directional instructions that are given in the Cha Cha Slide. We were then able to develop our own codes to program a Bee-Bot. We also developed our typing skills.

Castle floor plans

We used natural resources to create our own castle floor plans.
