Long Term Plan
Emerald Class Blog:
We have had a brilliant half term of learning. In English we have written some fantastic non-chronological reports. As well as researching facts about different animals, we learnt about the features a non-chronological report has and produced some great pieces of work. We also looked at some of Spike Milligan's nonsense poems and wrote some of our own.
In PSHE, we have been learning about what makes us special and appreciating our differences. We were so brave because we put on a talent show which meant performing or speaking in front of the whole class!
For design technology, we received a message from some pirates in a bit of trouble! The pirates' lunch kept getting ruined whether from pesky mermaids, seagulls or the giant rolling waves. We had to come up with a design criteria, research existing products, design our own produce and then test and evaluate our work.
Here are some examples!
Emerald class have enjoyed taking part in a wide variety of learning this summer. In English, we looked at the book 'Dear Greenpeace and developed our letter writing skills to write to the WWF about a creature we had found - we hope they reply! We then wrote a letter to one of our class friends and posted it in a stamped envelope in our class post box. We really enjoyed opening our letters! More recently, we have been looking at 'No-bot - the robot with no bottom'. We are looking forward to writing some stories inspired by this book.
It was great taking part in sports and wellbeing week. Each day we took part in mindfulness activities. We created pieces of art, engaged with music and were brilliant team members on sports day. We also took part in an archery workshop!
Emerald class were so lucky to have a Wild Woods session with Mrs Death in Summer 2. We were able to build dens, search for wildlife, climb trees and create a piece of hammered flower art. Miss Heyburn was amazed by the den we made independently - we had to use lots of teamwork.
On Modern Foreign Languages day, we spent time looking at France, Spain, Germany and Japan. We created some artwork of the Eiffel Tower, made Spanish fans ready for our Flamenco dancing, created a German first day of school card and embraced the art of origami which is one of our favourite things to do! We made some incredible Pikachu origami.
