A sample of lat year's Term 1 and 2 2020 Learning
Beech Class has had a fun beginning to the school year.
Last term, our topic was After the Storm. We focused well being and our feelings. We looked at the book, The Huge Bag of Worries and learned about how worries can interfere in our lives and the best thing to do is to share your worries with someone. We made our own worry monsters and bag of worries and practised sharing our worries with a partner. We also learned about mixing colours, and different types of colour combinations, such as warm, cool or complimentary colours. We used this to make monsters using water colours and straws!
In RE, we looked at the story of Noah’s ark and learned about what it was like as a Christian to follow God. In DT, we had to design and build our own ark to survive a flood! We tested these out in a paddle pool and made improvements to our design!
This term, our topic was, Do they Know it’s Christmas in Wales? We helped Santa plan his journey to the United Kingdom by giving him information about the different countries, cities, mountains, rivers and weather he could expect to find in the United Kingdom over Christmas. In Science, we helped Santa investigate the properties of light to help make his sleigh and Christmas journey safer!
In music, we learned to play the glockenspiel and xylophone. We learned about playing quarter notes in time to a metronome and learned how to play Jingle Bells and some other songs!
In art, we made our own relief printing blocks and printed our own Christmas cards with them. We learned to say Merry Christmas in Scots, Welsh and Irish Gaelic and wrote this on our cards.
It’s been a busy term and we think everyone deserves a good rest this Christmas.
