2018 – 2019
Working with Adam Bushnall
Year 2 had a fantastic morning working with Adam to plan our own dinosaur stories. He showed us how to design our own dinosaurs and helped us to describe them using interesting adjectives. We thoroughly enjoyed the morning and are looking forward to writing our stories next week.
Trip to the Hancock Museum
Class 1/2P had a wonderful trip to the Hancock Museum on Wednesday as part of our topic on Dinosaurs this term.
We were very excited about seeing the T-Rex skeleton and looking at how enormous it was. We all enjoyed looking around the museum and using the interactive displays. The workshop was really interesting and we learnt lots about how fossils were formed and even handled some fossilised dinosaur poo! Ox Close Primary have now got a beautiful butterfly on the virtual display wall, after making their voluntary contribution to the museum. The butterfly will be on display for the whole year.
Walking with Dinosaurs
We have been using an interactive site to bring dinosaurs to life in our History lessons. We were able to make T-Rex and Triceratops walk around the tables and roar. It was really exciting. We also spent time using non-fiction texts to ask and answer questions about dinosaurs.
Christmas with the Aliens
Year 1 and 2 thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas party and looked lovely in their Christmas outfits.
We have been using the instruments to tap along to the pulse when learning a new Christmas song.
We have enjoyed using the Bee Bots to programme them through a maze.
Year 2 enjoyed their Judo taster session.
Children in 1 2P had a lovely time in the garden making clay aliens.
We used the words we had learnt in science to talk about the changes we were making to the materials.
