Welcome to Lanner class!
Our theme this term is:
'The Enchanted Woodland!'
If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a BIG surprise!
This term we will be spending a lot of time outside!
We are going to be finding out about the environment around us.
We launched our theme by getting up close to a barn owl called Grace!
Our theme last term was:
'TOWERS, TUNNELS AND TURRETS'
We had fun exploring life in the past.
Lanner class had fun climbing to the top of the tall towers.
We counted the steps.
We found out more about...
During our visit we got to see the largest siege machine IN THE WORLD!
We watched this colossal catapult.
We were told it is one of the biggest military machines of all time.
Last term we investigated seasonal changes. We found out about the types of weather we may experience not only here in the United Kingdom, but also elsewhere in the world. We went on a ‘Nature’s Treasures’ walk around the school grounds to search for seasonal signs.
Here are some questions we found the answers to:
Can you see leaves? What colour are they?
What is the weather like?
Are the clouds the same shape and size?
During our walk we collected items to talk about back in the classroom such as buds, dried leaves, wild flowers, sticks, leaf litter, acorns, pine cones, icicles and other natural objects. As a class we collected a range of interesting items and took digital pictures at different points during the walk.
In term two we investigated the names of the planets. There's Mercury, Mars and...do you know any others?
Hold tight... 5-4-3-2-1...LIFT OFF!
Our theme for term one was... 'The Scented Garden'.
In September we went on a visit to Fosseway Garden Centre to look at and ask questions about different plants and flowers. During our visit we had the opportunity to talk to the adults who worked there and we asked them how they look after the plants and flowers. In class we used our senses to explore both plants and trees in lots of different ways! We then used the photographs taken on our visit to the garden centre to help us write a recount of the event.
We planted bulbs.
Then we played in the sandpit.
We had a great time building castles.
Can you identify the wild flowers and herbs below?
