This term Amethyst class are settling in well to life in Key Stage 2. We are enjoying our 'Light and Shadow' topic and have produced some fantastic work.
As always we have the KS2 christmas production, pantomime visit and possibly a KS2 disco to look forward to.
As part of our ‘Light and Shadow’ topic we produced some excellent videos which we shared with our families. The adults and children enjoyed sharing the work they have produced so far and it was nice to share our classroom with our families.
On a cold, blustery day we walked to the garden centre to look for sundials to link in with our topic. We found 2 sundials and investigated how people used to use the sun to tell the time. These are the ones we found.
We are looking forward to making our own (and hoping the sun comes back so we can use them!)
When we arrived at school one morning we sadly found that there had been a little fire. Luckily we used the opportunity to learn about fire safety rules ready for bonfire night and halloween. Miss Couling will be much more careful next time she uses matches!
(Dont't worry, this was all part of Winchelsea's experiential curriculum!)
