Thursday Chit Clubs have been popular this half-term, myself and the children have really enjoyed having a chat and eating our lunch together in the classroom. The children love chit chat club and here are some of the reasons why…
“I like chit chat club because we get to listen to music”
“I love chit chat club because it is really calm and we get to talk”
“I like chit chat club because it is super fun!”
I think Chit Chat club will have to continue next term!
This week we have continued to learn all about Sikhism. We have learned about a very important festival called Vaisakhi, also spelled Baisakhi. It is one of the most important dates in the Sikh calendar and it is the Sikh New Year festival and it is celebrated on 13th or 14th April. We found out that Sikhs celebrate Vaisaki by wearing colourful clothing, by having parades, going to the Gurdwara and by singing and dancing. We ended the week by creating our own Vaisaki flags and having a celebration in our classroom. We have enjoyed learning and writing all about the festival and talking about how we celebrate different things!

During our science days we have been learning about habitats. We worked in groups to recreate a habitat using a range of materials. We started by researching our given habitat, we used ipads to find out information and look at pictures. We also made notes, listed keywords and drew pictures to help us.
We were given key roles and worked together to create our finished product, they looked brilliant! After lunch we presented our habitats and all the information we had found out to our friends. We got to share our knowledge and learn from our friends about all of the other habitats.

The past two days have been design and technology days. We have been designing, planning and making structures using resources in our forest school. We worked in groups to create our structures and we put all of our ideas together! We left our structures overnight and went back the next morning to evaluate how well they had been built. We discussed what worked well and what we could do to improve them. It has been a muddy and messy few days but we have learned a lot and had so much fun! The children showed excellent team work!

To end our topic all about The Great Fire of London, we went to Staircase House in Stockport. We shared everything we had learned about the fire of London and learned some new facts. We learned about the Fire Service, how houses were made and even more information about the night the fire started. We impressed the staff at Staircase House with everything we already knew! During the afternoon we went back in time and reenacted the 2nd September 1666. We each had a role and we moved through the different rooms in Staircase house to role play each part of the night. We had a fantastic day and we took lots of pictures!

In history we have been learning all about The Great Fire of London. We have learning lots of facts and information. In English we have also been looking at stories based around events that happened during the fire back in 1666. We have explored diary entries from people who were there! As part of our English we had to write our own diary entry as if we were in London 553 years ago. To help us understand what it felt like we went back in time to 1666, we role played different scenarios from The Great Fire of London. This really helped us when we came to write our diary entries and we had so much fun acting!
