Keep an eye out for updates on our page throughout the year to see what fantastic things we get up to in Willow Class!

 Our theme this term is called..LIVING OFF THE LAND!
 
 
This term will be learning about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age and how the discoveries from this time period helped change the world! 
 
After half term, we will spend some time finding out about Charles Darwin and how he came up with his Theory of Evolution.
We will also look at his voyage to the Galapagos Islands!

PE

 We had a great time in PE today. We completed our training so that we can become Sports Ambassadors after half term!

We thought about the traits that a good play leader would have to begin with, then we invented our own games. We even taught another group how to play!

History: Cave Paintings

We had the chance to create our own cave paintings today.

To ensure we had the right texture, we screwed up our piece of paper so that we could experience what it was actually like to draw on the walls!

English: Reading - Role Play

We read more of our class book, Ug: Boy Genius of the Stone Age, today. Dug and Dugs (Mum and Dad) were having a conversation about Ug’s recent behaviour. We talked about how his parents felt about this and we noticed that their facial expressions could help us infer this.

In pairs, we used role play to help us consider what they may say next, but also to help us predict what other mischievous behaviour and suggestions may occur based on what we know so far!

Science: Classification

Today, we extended our knowledge even further by creating classification keys to organise and sort animals of our choice.

We did a fantastic job and presented our work beautifully!

English

 This week, we are starting to write our information reports to explain what life was like in the Stone Age. 
Today, we wrote our first paragraph using the slow writing technique. This is where each of our sentences contain a different feature. 
Check out these fantastic opening paragraphs!

Trip to Greystones

We had an fantastic day today at Greystones Farm, exploring life in the Iron Age.

In small groups, we had the chance to make flour from grain, build a fire and a wall!

Willow Class were absolutely fantastic today and the volunteers from Greystones commented on how well behaved we were!

Great job Willow Class!

History

This week, we have been looking at key events that took place between the Stone and Iron Age. 

In our books, we made our own pre-historic timelines.

Check out our fabulous presentation. We have been working hard this week to present our work in different ways.

What do you think?

Stone Age Day!

 Today, we spent the WHOLE morning learning about our new topic! 

We started the morning making a timeline to show us just how far back the Stone Age actually was. We used a toilet roll as our timeline for this!

Afterwards, we were set a challenge. In groups of 4, we had to build a replica of Stonehenge out of yummy biscuits. We were fantastic at this and worked brilliantly in our team!

We got a little creative after break and used clay to make our own Stone Age jewellery! Next week (once the clay is dry!) we will assemble our creations and make either a Stone Age necklace or bracelet!

Welcome back everyone!

We kicked off the year with a little bit of Science this afternoon!

As we are looking at Living Things this term, we recapped what we already knew about classification. We used our prior knowledge to help us create our own classification keys to help us group some rather yummy sweets based on their similarities and differences!
