KS1 Beach Clean

Today we visited Margate beach as part of our topic learning. We used a net to see if we could catch anything from the sea. We then explored our findings, including sea creatures and plants. We went on a scavenger hunt and tried to find the names for what we had found! We ended our trip by taking part in a beach clean to find out how much rubbish is left at the beach and the impact this has.

Exploring the Art of Nature

This term, the children have been inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy, a renowned British artist who works with found natural elements. Goldsworthy is inspired by all aspects of the natural world including twigs, leaves, tree roots and rocks. Next time you're out for a walk, try picking up loose objects that look interesting to you. All you have to do to be inspired by nature is to look around!

Some of our Learning in Year 2

KS1 workshops with Phil

The children have been having workshops with Phil, where they become aliens and explore their alien voices using specific areas of their mouths to make sounds. This project is all about exploring voice which the children really enjoy! The children use drama through acting as shop keepers and hairdressers, improvising their own alien conversations. The children also play a variety of games with Phil with focus on speaking and listening.

From making palaces in the construction area, investigating whether materials are waterproof, to being creative in the art area.   Lots of lovely learning opportunities throughout the week.  The children even created an aeroplane in the outside area and then made passports to ensure they could board the plane.

The Fantastic Fred Experience

 

The children enjoyed a fun filled afternoon on Friday when all the KS1 classes had a visit from the NHS 'Fantastic Fred' experience.  The Professor taught the children all the important things to remember for ensuring good mental health - making sensible food choices, getting enough rest, exercise and limiting time on devices.  The children took part in a quiz, they got the opportunity to 'floss' and laughed and enjoyed the interactive show.

Entry Point

 

Our new topic is about our brains and thinking about how we learn best.  To launch into our topic we had a fun afternoon exploring different activities.  The children 'dissected' jelly brains.  They thought about the different functions of the brain and discussed what a real brain looks and feels like.  Children then put their brains to use by completing puzzles and logic games.

Welcome to Stone Bay Class

 

This summer we have been very busy getting our classroom ready for this academic year. As you can see, we have many areas for the children to explore during their Enquiry time. We are excited to welcome the children back to the classroom to explore what Stone Bay class has to offer.

 

We hope you enjoy looking through the areas.
