To link with out Seas, Beaches and Oceans topic, the children were lucky enough to have a visit from the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution). The children really enjoyed their visit and learnt about what the RNLI do, along with important information about how to stay safe on beaches and around water. The children learnt what to do if they are ever in trouble or spot trouble on the beaches/ in water. This knowledge has been shown as they created RNLI factsheets linked to the visit.
School Trip- Sealife Centre Blackpool
To link with our Science work on habitats and our overall topic; Seas, Beaches and Oceans, we were lucky enough to have a class visit to the Sealife Centre in Blackpool. The children took part in a workshop delivered by a specialist, who worked to extend what the children had already learnt about habitats further. The children were then given the opportunity to see what they had learnt in a classroom environment in real life as they explored the Sealife centre. The children really enjoyed their visit.
The children wrote about their trip during their Big Write time. The children also used what they had learnt to inform their habitat shoe box creations.
The children have been active in practicing their times tables. The children are really enjoying completing the super mover videos whilst practicing their times tables.
The children have been gaining knowledge of what classifies something as 'alive, dead or never been alive'. The children put this knowledge into practice as they explored the school grounds on a hunt to identify items that fell into the categories of 'alive', 'dead' or 'has never been alive'.
The children enjoyed learning a sea side song, 'The Big Ship Sails on the Ally Ally O. The children worked in teams to use body percussions to add to the song during pauses. The children identified the pause to be 4 beats and chose different sounds to create a 4 beat pattern to replace the pause. Click on the below link to view some videos.
We had a tennis coach in school who worked with the children to improve their ball skills. They worked hard on their ball control and aiming a ball at a target.
