Gemini Class

 WELCOME TO YEAR ONE and TWO CLASS

 

We have had an exciting first half of the spring term in Gemini class. We have explored the fascinating history of the vehicles, with the children creating their own designs of moving transports. these included cars, rockets, trains with wheels and flying cars too. All of the children added their own ideas to improve a classic vehicles.

The class enjoyed the outdoor learning day by exploring what grows in our school grounds. They also went on an adventure to be like great explorers in history, discovering how much wildlife grows and lives right on our door step. We played outdoor maths games, measuring large areas and seeing how long our shadow was.

 

Next term we shall be learning about the human body and how we use our muscles to help us to move.The class will look at all the bones that make up the human body. We shall see how our heart rate rises when we exert energy. On our next outdoor learning day we shall plant a variety of seeds and place them in different environments to see the rate at which they grow.

World Book Day

World Book Day 1

 

Gemini class had such fun on world book day all dressed up as different book characters.

We had an amazing time going to the theatre and exploring the story of ' The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me' and exciting story by Roald Dahl. The children created their own characters for a new story either involving a wolf or a giant and thought of where their story would be set and what adventure their characters would go on. The children also shared their own books form home with each other and looked at their favourite traditional tale books.
