As part of our Science topic this term we have been investigating forces. At the beginning of the term we looked at magnetic force and friction. After that we decided to investigate air resistance. The children thought about the different factors that would affect air resistance and investigated these factors by making parachutes.
This term we used the forest school area to build dens. The children learnt that many civilisations used the natural resources around them for shelter. The Celts and Anglo-Saxons are an example of this. The children were challenged to build a shelter from the natural resources in and around the forest schools area.
On Thursday 7th March the whole school celebrated world book day by dressing up in their favourite characters from their favourite stories. Well done Chameleons, you all looked fantastic.
Spring is here! The children have been planting bulbs in our designated flower beds and then tending to the beds the past few months. It is lovely to finally see some signs of their hard work.
As part of our DT the Chameleons built Viking ships. The children spend several weeks investigating ships, practising the skills needed to build the ships, designing and finally building their own Viking Ship. Well done to the children (and parents who came in to help!) the ships looked great.
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.
