This week we have been celebrating the King’s Coronation. We have been making the union jack using resources from around the classroom. We also went on a walk around the village to look for things connected to the Coronation.

We acted out the Coronation and crowned our own King and Queen.

We made sandwiches and cakes for our royal tea party hosted by the King and Queen.



The King and Queen greeted us. We then took our seats and had our tea party.

We have been exploring 3D shapes. We tested them out on ramps to see which ones would roll the best. We talked about why the cylinders and the cones rolled better than the pyramids, the cubes and the cuboids.

Then we made our own ramps and tested the cylinders and cones out on them.

We were set the challenge of making a daffodil using different resources and this is what we made.

We are definitely getting ready for Easter. We started the week off by having egg and spoon races.

Spring is in the air. We explored The Jungle looking for signs of Spring.

We are celebrating Chinese New Year. Today we flew to China. We did a little bit of sightseeing and tried some Chinese food before flying home.

We made boats out of tinfoil. Then we put marbles in them to see how many it would take to make the boat sink.

To finish off our learning about The Gruffalo. We made a crumble – it wasn’t Gruffalo crumble but blackberry and apple crumble.

Today, we had great fun making a Gruffalo using clay. When they are dry we are going to paint the features.

We made a den and we pretended to be the Gruffalo.

Our topic this term is Julia Donaldson. This week we have been reading ‘The Gruffalo’. Today, we made Gruffalo faces using jaffa cakes.
