Fallow 2023 - 2024

Amazing Art!

We are really enjoying our art lessons where we have been learning how to mix tints by adding white. As part of the topic, we have studied the painting, 'The Great Wave' by Hokusai and the children have used what they have learned to create their own fabulous waves.

We're 'In The Groove'!

In Music during the Spring Term, we have been learning the song ‘In The Groove’ and we have practiced using the glockenspiels to keep the beat. The children took turns to perform to the class and had great fun!

Investigating Moving Vehicles

In DT we have been investigating wheels and axles. Discovering what they are, how they work together and how they are used in cars. The children then worked in pairs to design and make their own cars. It was great to see such fantastic teamwork!

The Twinkly Nativity

I am so proud of the children in Fallow Class who along with Reindeer and Elk classes performed beautifully in their wonderful Christmas production of 'The Twinkly Nativity'. All of the actors, narrators, singers, and instrumentalists worked so hard and they were very excited to be able to perform in front of their families.

 

May I say a huge thank you to everyone at home who helped the children learn their words and songs!

Children In Need Day

Everyone looked fab for Children in Need Day, raising lots of money for the charity. Well done Fallow Class!

‘Life Education’ Visit - Healthy Bodies

We all loved seeing Harold the Giraffe and learning how to keep our bodies and minds healthy when Jenny and Sarah from ‘Life Education’ came to Belmont. During the visit, we learned about the importance of a good diet and why exercise and sleep is good for us. We also learnt how we can look after our bodies by washing, cleaning our teeth and brushing our hair. Harold told us that sometimes he feels sad and we had lots of ideas to cheer him up!  

Toys, Old And New!

In History, it has been great to see so many children bringing in information about parent’s and grandparent’s toys. The children loved sharing this with the class and it really brought the topic alive and made it relevant to the children. The children then compared different modern toys in our classroom and sorted them using different criteria. We then used our toys with those brought from home to create a Venn diagram. We were also lucky enough to have a box of old-fashioned toys from Lincoln Museum. The children loved exploring these and making sure to handle them carefully as they were artefacts. I think we have some budding historians in the class!
