This term the children have been working hard in gymnastics. They have been exploring variety of movements and using these to create their own sequence. They have used partner work to mirror each other’s shapes and demonstrate balance and control.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed our topic ‘What Makes Britain Great?’ So far they have explored Canterbury and our capital city London. They then researched London further to produce information posters about all aspects of London. The children included information about buildings in London, London landmarks and The Royal Family. We have also been pleased to receive fabulous home learning tasks linked to our topic.
On Monday 11th February we were very lucky to have specialist cricket coaches in to share an inspirational assembly with the children. Afterwards, the children took part in a cricket workshop to improve their basic skills and play lots of fun games.
We love to use drama as part of our writing journey. It helps the children to understand and sympathise with characters or events in stories. This drama activity enabled the children to understand the characters from the book ‘The Stone Age Boy’. We then went on to write our own Stone Age adventure story.
On Monday 19th November Chameleon class went to the Kent Life Museum as part of our Stone Age topic. The children attended workshops about Stone Age trading, hunters to farmers, religious beliefs and traditions, cave paintings, grinding grain and even met a real Stone Age cave man. The children learnt a lot and had a fabulous time.
