Science Week

As part of science week the we were invited to Year 5 class,  Blue Mahoe, to share in their learning and create different types of transportation. The Year 5 children have been leaning about transport and the Year 1 children have been learning about journeys and how we can travel around the UK. These topics enabled the the children to share their knowledge and learn from each

Money, Money, Money

We investigated coin values and added coins to match a total. We focused in the size, shape and value of each coin

The Naughty Bus

We have been researching the local area and local places that we have visited. We talked about West Ham Station, Star Lane Medical Centre and West Ham Bus Garage to name a few. We then looked at the structure of each landmark and created our own representation using junk modelling.

Christmas workshop

We used our creative skills to design and make Christmas trees. We talked about colour, shape and size. We then used a ‘secret mixture’ to make our trees green and added sweets for decorations. Our parents were invited into school to buy our creations.

Leaf Man

We have been investigating the season’s trough the story Leaf Man written by Lois Ehlert. We used a selection of brown, orange and yellow leaves to create our own leaf men to reflect the season of autumn.

Money

We have been investigating coins and their values by sorting coins. Then we used the coins in real life situations through buying items from a shop and paying for them using the correct coins.

Remembrance Day

On Armistice Day soldiers visited our school and shared with us a message of peace and tolerance. Soldiers came to our school to show us some of the equipment that they use including transport, helmets and food. They talked to the children about the importance of world peace and how we can achieve this.
