Hello Team Willowbird and families!
This is where we will post pictures of the work and activities that we have been completing in the Key Worker group each group.
Update: 26th June 2020- A massive well done to all the children for their fantastic work this week and thank you to all of them for their enthusiasm and hard work.
WB 29th June
For the next two weeks, we are focusing on Geography and are looking at 'travel'. Each child has been issued with their own mini passport which they will fill with information we have learnt about the countries we visit. This week we are focusing on Britain, before moving further afield next week.
On Monday we started in England and made crowns and split pin royal guards. On Tuesday, we headed up to Scotland, and we made tartan patterns, by weaving paper, and tried some Scottish shortbread.
WB 22nd June
Our second week of time travelling... On Monday, we left the Second World War and ended up in Roman Colchester. We had a go at walking in a straight line like Roman soldiers, and made our own Roman shields. On Tuesday, we arrived in Viking York where we created some fantastic art work and tried writing messages in Viking Runes. Wednesday saw us enter the Tudor times and the children had a go at making Tudor biscuits! We also, took a trip to the future and had a think about what crazy inventions may of happened in 100 years time. Finally we found ourselves back in the Stone Age and created some artwork around Stonehenge. We are now coming to an end to our time travelling fun... but all sorts of exciting things are planned for the next few weeks!
WB 15th June
This week we have begun our history fortnight and our travelling through time to investigate life in other eras... So far we have gone to Ancient Egypt and made headdresses, as well as a trip to the Victorian era where we had a go at making some popular Victorian toys... On Wednesday, we arrived in 1939 and began our 3 days learning about the Second World War...
WB 8th June
During this week, we were looking at space and all our activities from Tuesday onwards were linked to that theme. We looked at the planets and found out all sorts of information about them, as well as baking shortbread biscuits and designing our own planets on them... We have used paint and pastels to create all of the planets for a 'planets' display. On Friday we even made and tried some Astronaut pudding!
Monday 8th June was World Ocean Day so as part of this, we learnt about the oceans and what we can do to protect them. All the children created a poster encouraging people to look after the oceans and not litter the beaches. We also created our own 'Ocean in a jar' which was a very popular activity!
