A busy first week back in Pelican 3! We started the week with our learning to learn day and discussed ‘the power of yet!’ and how the word ‘yet’ can make us think positively about things we have not yet achieved. With this in mind, some of our in class ‘chess experts’ were able to teach the rest of the class how to play chess. A game that many of us thought we would not ever be able to play!
On Tuesday we had a whole themed day linked to our new science topic of ‘Light and Shadows’. We created storyboards, play scripts, characters and props. We then performed our own shadow puppet show to retell the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. Some very unique versions of the story were produced!
Monday 17th December – Thursday 20th December 2018
Well done Pelicans on an excellent performance of the ABC of Christmas. I was very proud of you all. Have a fantastic Christmas break and I shall see you all in the new year! Mr Bond.
Monday 10th December – Friday 14th December 2018
Today we have been interviewed by one of Santa’s helpers to find out about some of the naughty and nice things that we have been up to this year. We are then going to use this role play activity to help create our hot write letters on Thursday.
Monday 3rd December – Friday 7th December 2018
This week has been spent learning about some of the features of letter writing, rehearsing for our Christmas show and creating Christmas decorations!
Following the visit from the ‘Rock Man’, Pelican 3 have created their very own fossils using Plasticine and Plaster of Paris.
Today Pelican class followed instructions to make their own bread! We hope you enjoy tasting the finished product at home!
Monday 12th November- Friday 16th November 2018
What a great day with Rock Man! We interacted with lots of different rocks, found out about how fossils are created and even Mary Anning came to visit us all. The highlight of the day was definitely holding a real fossilised dinosaur egg! We couldn’t believe that it actually contained a baby dinosaur inside!
Monday 5th November 2018 – Friday 9th November 2018
On Tuesday had a fantastic morning at Southend Museum learning more about the Stone Age and getting to hold many different artefacts. We even got to hold a real mammoth tooth and tusk!
Monday 29th October 2018 – Friday 2nd November 2018
This week we were lucky enough to have our first Kalmer Kids session. The purpose of our first lesson was to learn new breathing techniques to apply when we are felling scared or if we need to calm down. We looked at ways to slow down our breathing through humming and relaxing our bodies. We look forward to finding out more over the next half-term.
Monday 15th October 2018 – Friday 19th October 2018
We had a great time at the science fair. Thank you to all of the parents and other family members that came along to see our magnetic attractions! We hope you enjoyed it as much as us!
Monday 8th October 2018 – Friday 12th October 2018
A big well done to all the pupils and staff who spent the night at school. The pupils had lots of fun throughout the evening and all pupils slept well and were up early for school on the Friday. They managed to pack up their belongings and we only have a few items of lost property which we will bring out to the playground on Monday after school.
Have a good weekend.
Monday 1st October 2018 – Friday 5th October 2018
Text: We hope you enjoy our Wind Poems created down at the beach!
Monday 24th September – Friday 28th September 2018
Pelican class have been learning about creating images through poetry this week. We learned a chant and created some of our own chants based on different animals and creatures.
We hope you enjoy our performances of 'Bug Chant'.
PE, children need to have their PE kit in school every day, as the days change for PE each half term.
They must come into school with their hair tied back and no jewellery is to be worn during PE lessons.
Monday 17th September – Friday 21st September 2018
This week we have been investigating the strength of magnets. At first we all predicted that the larger magnets would be stronger, however after lots of investigating we found that this isn’t always the case!
Monday 10th – Friday 14th September 2018
Pelicans have had a great first full week back at school. As well as place value in maths and conjunctions in English, we have also investigated different forces in science and started sketching leaves in art.
We are looking forward to finding out more about different forces and continuing to build on our autumn sketches next week.
