In preparation for our Barleylands trip we have been learning about food. Angelfish class have been intrigued by this Science topic and even impressed the Barleylands team with their knowledge and questioning skills.
Our trip to Barleylands was fantastic! The children learnt lots of educational facts about farming and the production of food. They also got the opportunity to make some yummy bread, ride a very bumpy tractor and feed the animals.

This week our school has been lucky enough to play host to The Problem Solving Company and each class has had an individual session in the Upper School Hall to try out some of the activities.
Our session was on Wednesday and we had a great time!
Poor Miss Scott wasn't very well so Mrs Coulson, Mrs Fox and Mrs Jones accompanied us and they were all impressed with the way that we worked in our teams to solve the problems.
Tom gave us a pattern that we had to copy using the shapes that he had given us. We split into teams and we began! Once we had mastered the first one, Tom gave us a more challenging pattern to make. Could we do it? Of course we could!

In science we have also been learning about materials and their properties, which we used to help us sort objects in to the right categories.
Monday 16th - Friday 20th January

Thank you so much to all the parents who came to help Angelfish Class create such beautiful decorations. Our classroom is looking very festive thanks to your splendid glitter skills.
Monday 21st - Friday 25th November 2016
Following our visit to the library gardens I set the children a challenge, which they more than rose to. The children were asked to use marshmallows and spaghetti to build a tall and strong structure that would stand on its own.
It was certainly a trial and error process but eventually the children worked out that they needed a base in order to build upwards. Not all of the children were successful but they were able to explain why their structure collapsed.
It was sticky and messy but we certainly had fun!
Monday 14th-Friday 18th November
Wow! What a busy week we've had in Angelfish Class. This week we have learnt about writing stories and even went to the beach to act out our 'Lost!' story. Together we have created a word bank of awesome adjectives, which we will be using next week to write own version of the story. Angelfish Class have impressed me with their enthusiasm and I can't wait to read their stories next week.

It's been a really busy week in Angelfish Class. We met up with our book buddies for the first time and shared our books with Cockle Shell Class. As you can see we had a lovely time finding out about our buddies and we are looking forward to the next time we meet.
Here is a snapshot of some of the things that Angelfish have been doing this half term - as you can see we have been very busy since we returned to school in September!
Talking of being busy, I would like to apologise for the late posting - it has been an absolute whirlwind over the past 7 weeks!
Look out for weekly postings of our photos after half term.
