This week in life skills, we have been learning about food packaging and production. We discussed our favourite chocolate brands and how we can tell them apart on the shelves in shops. We then designed our own chocolate wrappers and made our own chocolate. We added lots of yummy goodies into our recipe to make each one different!

Life Skills Passport- Week 4

This week in life skills, we have discussed the importance of relaxation and how it helps us. We talked about what helps each of us to relax and what doesn't. We then worked as a team to build a relaxation den and spent some time in there with some goodies to test it out!

Bridge Making

Today we have been learning about who invented bridges. We tried to make our own by using spaghetti and marshmallows and then we tested how strong they were.

Recycled Bricks

This week Cedar have done their part to help the environment by making recycled bricks with our visitor!

This Friday, we have completed the 2nd task on our Life Skills Passports. We walked to the post box in our local area to post the letters that we have written to our pen pals. We can't wait to get our replies!

This Friday, we have started our first week of the Life Skills Activity Passport Scheme. We have written our first letters to our Pen Pals at another school to introduce ourselves and tell them what we like. We are very excited to post our letters and receive our replies!

We have been inventors in Topic!

In Topic this half term, we are looking at inventors and inventions. Today we learnt about who invented Lego and how it is made today. We were challenged to create our own Lego inventions using a limited amount of pieces in a limited time. It was really tricky but we all created some fantastic inventions!

Chicks

Our Easter chicks came back to school to visit us. Look how big they've grown!

Happy Easter from Cedar class. We have enjoyed having the chicks in class this week.

St Patrick's Day 2019

St Patrick's Day 2019 1

In English this week we looked at how Ireland celebrates St Patrick's Day. We drew Leprachauns and used forks and orange paint to give them beards. We also designed our own version of the shamrock, and used the computer to create "something Irish". 

We're going on a bear hunt!

We're going on a bear hunt! 1

In English this week we have been looking at 'We're going on a bear hunt' story. We have painted our favourite scenes from the story and used junk modelling to make our own caves for the bear to hide in. We also wrote our own story endings and designed our own book covers. We loved exploring the thick, oozy mud in our sensory garden!

Chinese New Year 2019

Chinese New Year 2019 1 Cedar Class have been exploring Chinese culture.

We have been using our senses to explore traditional Chinese food and culture.

In English we have been working on our sentence structures and looking at Chinese writing.

In Maths we looked at the shapes of a Chinese dragon, and used numicon shapes to design our own.

As you can see, we were really inspired by Chinese art and colours, and put lots of effort into creating our own masterpieces.

 

Look how hard Cedar Class have worked to learn some new information on Chinese New Year!
