Jolly Jellyfish

Welcome to our class pages!

Our P.E days are Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure earrings are removed and long hair is tied up on these days. Many thanks.

This half term our topic is 'Enchanted Woodlands'. 

In science we will be sorting and identifying plants and animals. We will be  working with natural materials to make sculptures in the style of Andy Goldsworthy.

Geography - making maps of our local area.

D&T - building dens.

RE - Looking at Islam and what Muslims believe.

PSHE - being responsible.

PE - athletics.

ICT - finding images on the internet and copying them into a Word document.

We had a fantastic day last Tuesday. The children were an absolute pleasure to take out for the day. We learned a lot about habitats and how we can help protect the wildlife around us. We also created some art in the woods based on the work of Andy Goldsworthy. Look out for the work we are doing in school on recreating natural works of art.

We also went on a tree hunt to identify the different types of tree on the field. We looked carefully at their leaves and made bark rubbings

Enchanted Woodland

We went to explore the school field and Forest School area to kick start our new topic. Here are some photos of us in action.

 

We made mischievous tree boggarts out of mud and natural materials that we found on the ground....

Look at all the exciting things we did to begin our new topic. Jungle Jo brought in all sorts of exotic creatures to show us. We also looked to see what we could find a little closer to home!

We went outside to investigate which were the most common minibeasts in our local habitat. We used 'pooters' to collect some examples. We then carefully returned them to where we had found them. 

We have been busy finding the capacity of containers. We poured the water into a measuring jug and read the scales to find out how many millilitres they held.

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets.

 

 

In maths, we were looking for things that were longer and shorter than a metre.  After that we measured the width of the playground. We found out the it was 15 metres and 47 centimetres.

We looked at sculptures that artists had made with sticks and stones. We then had a go at creating our own masterpieces!

Amazing Art

We looked at some artwork by the German artist, Kurt Schwitters.

 

He was most well know for his collages. We created our own collages in the same style using different types of paper and fabric. Look at the photos of us in action and some of the final masterpieces. Don't they look great?

Have a look at this link for more information. https://www.tate.org.uk/art/artists/kurt-schwitters-1912

Oh no!!! We had a mystery visitor in our class... look at the mess they made!

We investigated the clues that had been left to try and work out who might have done it and why.

Look at some of the things we have been learning....

We tried different types of food from around the world and talked about where the ingredients come from. We also learned about a balanced diet and designed a healthy sandwich. We then made this from collage materials.

We studied the work of Carl Warner and then had a go at creating our own 'foodscapes'.

Moon Zoom

 

Memorable Experience- Tuesday 11th September

 

As part of the Moon Zoom topic the Jolly Jellyfish explored and investigated the scene of a spaceship crash site. The class took photographic evidence and drew pictures of the spacecraft before the site was cleared.

 

Happy New year to you all! Our topic this half term is:

Muck, Mess and Mixtures.

We had great fun exploring all sorts of weird and wonderful mixtures, such as mud, jelly, spaghetti, shaving foam, paint and lots more! Here are some photos of our messy morning...

Bright Lights, Big City

 

Memorable Experience- Monday 5th November

 

As part of the Bright Lights, Big City topic the Jolly Jellyfish were invited to a Street party to visit the ‘Queen’. The class spent the morning researching information about her life and thinking of suitable questions to ask her during her visit to Long Row Primary School. The Jolly Jellyfish also made their own Union Jack flags, paper crowns, jam sandwiches and decorated cupcakes ready for the event.
