Today, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Wiggins Class.
Paddington class are currently learning about ‘Mercurial Waters’. In class, we have been thinking about how we used water and how it is used in Africa. We realised that we use water in similar ways to people in Africa: for cleaning, drinking, washing etc. Water can also be found in rivers, streams, the sea, ponds, baths, showers and many more.
It occurred to us that there are many dangers around water. We started to think about how people in Africa would need to be safe around the rivers and The Victoria Falls (hippo attacks, risk of drowning, being swept away and crocodile attacks) but also how important it is for us to be safe around water in school and at home.
This is where Wiggin’s class comes in. Wiggin’s class is responsible for looking after the school garden and school pond. They told us what we might find in the pond but also, most importantly, how to be safe around the pond.
At the end of the talk, Wiggin’s class presented us with the key to the school garden. What a privilege!!!
Tomorrow, we will be visiting the school garden and the pond bearing in mind all the important things that Wiggin’s class have told us.
Thank you so much Wiggin’s class! J
This afternoon, Paddington class went on a walk to Tesco for our Farm to Fork session.
We were met by Debbie who explained the rules to keep us safe.
Then we had to split up into two groups to complete our activities.
The activities were:
- Going into the bakery.
- Looking at the fruit and veg.
- Visiting the fish stand.
What was your favourite part of the trip?
What did you learn?
Well done for superb behaviour and great road safety! 🙂
All children should now have taken home their flower pots with their sunflower seeds inside.
Now it’s competition time… We want to see who can grow the best sunflower.
Add a comment to the blog explaining what you need to do to make sure your sunflower grows.
We have had a very busy week in Paddington class this week.
We had a great day at Woburn seeing lots of different animals. We especially liked touching the snake. What was your favourite animal?
The children showed great resilience in sports day and completed 12 different sporting activities. What was your favourite activity?
In today’s assembly we had a Skype call with Myles Connolly (the producer of the 3D film Enchanted Kingdom). Each class prepared questions they would like to ask Myles about either being a producer or about the film. We found out so much!
We had an exciting day as explorers today finding out about famous explorers. Can you remember any names of the famous explorers we looked at?
We discovered that we would be learning all about Africa this term but we don’t know yet what realm we will be finding out about.
We started off the day by painting African masks using dots.
Then it was our turn to go to the African drum workshop. We had the most amazing time! We were even allowed to sit on the drums and realised that we could use different parts of our hands to make different sounds.
