Welcome To The Circus!
We have had great fun learning how to code using 2code on Purple Mash this term. You can see a fabulous video and how it was programed below.
This term we have also enjoyed exploring light in our science work. The children have enjoyed reflecting and refractining light and created their own periscopes placing the mirrors carefully inside so that we were able to see out of the top. We also learnt about the colour spectrum that Isaac Newton explored many years ago and made Newton wheels where, by spinning the colours together, they merged back to white.
Twelve children from the class have volunteered to be Playground Leaders this year. They completed their training with Jack from Inspire+ who taught them some safe, socially distanced games that proved to be great fun! They can't wait to share them on the playground!
The Ancient Greeks
What a fantastic start to the year Taruca have had! We have loved learning about the Ancient Greeks and created some wonderful clay pots whilst learning about the different time periods during the era of the Greeks.
We started this learning journey by using cake and chocolate to represent the different time periods. Focusing on a different time period each session we worked our way from the Bronze Age, where they used simple shapes in their designs, to the Hellenistic period, where 3D relief work was a key feature. The children used the designs and ideas they had seen from the different eras to create their own clay pot.
