What an exciting week it has been!

On Monday, the children visited the beach and participated in some fun activities.

Firstly, the children were split into two groups. The first activity was poem creating. They used their senses to create an Iron Man poem. Some great ideas were shared!

Finally, the children created Iron Man sculptures. They were so creative and had an absolute blast!

Before we left, we all joined forces and collected sea glass.

The following day, the children used their junk modelling to create their final Iron Man sculptures. Thanks to all parents who kindly sent in their recycling.

As we get back into routine, the children have enjoyed a fun start to the week. 

Tuesday afternoon, we sketched and then coloured in our Iron Man portraits. The children took extra care, persevered and completed their excellent art work. It was particularly challenging, as they needed to blend their colours. 

Wednesday afternoon, the children enjoyed PE. They played lots of challenging games and also strengthened their team work skills.

Great work Cockle! Keep it up.










Monday 9th September 2019 – Friday 13th September 2019


What a fantastic first week we have had in Cockle Class! In English, we have been learning about similies and adjectives, linking to our topic of The Iron Man. In maths, we have been working on place value, rounding and counting in thousands. In science, we looked at electricity and where it comes from. The children enjoyed using the electric stick, which required them to complete a circuit. Once completed, the stick would light up and play a very creepy sound. Finally, in history the children began learning about The Iron Age.
Well done Cockle! Keep it up.
