Pandas

30/03/20

 

Good Morning my panda cubs,

 

Your task for this week is to find an example of each of the following material in your home: 

glass

plastic

wood

metal

clay/brick.

When you have a good example of each, draw and label an image of each and write a sentence for each material explaining why this material was used to make this object. Can you recognise it's unique properties and why it was used? Remember the Science work we have been doing in school recently. 

 

Good luck yes

Good Afternoon,

 

A little activity you may be interested in: ask your child to make/draw/paint a rainbow image and then take a photo of the finished product and email it to postcards@springwellschool.co.uk . We will combine with Catcote School to make a video of the images our children design. This is a little project going on across the country to try and keep everyone's spirits up in these difficult times. The idea being that you would then place your rainbow image in your window for everyone to see. 

 

Enjoy yourselves

Caroline 

Hello Parents and Carers

 

Here are a few ideas of websites that may be helpful over the coming weeks to keep your little cherubs occupied but remember the most important thing is to keep your family safe. You don't need to replicate a school day! 

www.cosmickids.com 

www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/primary 

www.ictgames.com

www.crickweb.co.uk

 

When looking at phonics or Letters and Sounds activities look at 'phase' 2 and 3.  With Maths activities look for Year 1 based learning. Look out for Peace Out on You Tube for meditation activities - the children are used to doing this in class. 

This is a little schedule you may like to follow but seriously don't stress about it, it's just to give you a few ideas. 

 

I'll be in contact via this page soon.

Thanks for your continued support and understanding

Caroline 

Welcome to Panda Class

 

 

 

 

Our teacher is Caroline Derbyshire and our classroom assistants are Claire, Becca, and Karen.

Panda class is made up of 10 brilliant KS2 aged children who have a variety of learning needs.

                                                     Panda Class became Fire Fighters!

Look who came to visit us!!! We loved meeting the fire brigade and exploring the equipment that they use. 

                                                            A visit from Maisie

We loved playing with Maisie the PAT dog in Panda Class! 

 

                                                                       Science

 

   In science we have been learning all about habitats! We have looked at micro- habitats within our school grounds and researched larger habitat. We then used adjectives to describe some different micro-habitats and researched larger habitats. With all of our research we even made some of our own habitat boxes and they look amazing!

 

 

 

Computing - We Are Treasure Hunters

We learnt how to give each other precise instructions, to reach a specific destination. We also learnt how to program a robot to search a specific destination.

R.E. - Caring For Others

 

We have looked at the different ways different  religions look after people ; in Hinduism the celebration of Raksha Bandhan and in Sikhism the Langar Meal.

Christmas

 

We had a great time at Christmas and took part in a variety of activities such as; decorating a tree at St. Hilda's Church, performing a play about aliens landing on Earth at Christmas time and we had a party.

Spring 2020- Topic; Old and New

Makaton CarPark Karaoke - Wonderful World - Singing Hands

Makaton #WonderfulWorld We do a lot of travelling by car between classes and events - so to pass the time we have fun singing and signing along with our eclectic playlist!. After what seems like months of singing Christmas songs, we were back at work this week so whilst driving about we put together the signs for "Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong.

History

We have been looking at modern toys compared to toys of the past. We took part in a workshop at the Hartlepool Museum.

Panda's work this week 20-24/1/2020

 

Panda Class has worked really hard this week. In Literacy we have tackled rhyming words and written our own simple poems, which are fabulous!

In Maths this week we have focused on doubling numbers. History has been all about old and new toys, we have looked at their differences and their similarities. Panda class are very lucky to have two visitors come in each week to work with us. First, was Mike and he teaches us music. This week we got to play the chime bars and work on rhythms and beats, singing our favourite tunes. Secondly was Joanna from the library service. This time we read stories all about Chinese New Year and  made some incredible, dragon masks.

Panda Class has had a very busy week. Following our theme of Old and New, in D.T we have looked at biscuits across the ages. This week we baked hobnobs! They were delicious.

We played the Ukulele in Music this week with Mike. We practised strumming to a beat.

In P.E we are learning about gymnastics, focusing this week on balancing with a partner.

Joanna from the library service visited and we listened to a dinosaur story and made some cool dinosaur hats!

Panda Class' work this week-24-28/02/2020

This week Panda Class have really enjoyed our Science and Geography lessons. In Science the children have looked at and identified a variety of everyday materials including wood, plastic, glass, brick, paper and cardboard. In groups we walked around our classroom and the school, identifying what everything was made from.

In Geography we talked about and explored the human impact on the planet. As a class we went on a litter collection around the school grounds.

Panda Class Art- 03/03/2020

This week in Art we have focused on the works of Jill Townsley. In particular we have looked at the sculptures she has created using plastic spoons and rubber bands. We decided to try out her methods and create our own sculptures using those same materials.
