Fantastic Friday and choosing our new books

Today in computing we followed instructions carefully. To begin, we logged onto the computer and Purple Mash on our own using our card. It was tricky but we all managed to do it. Once we had logged onto Purple Mash we had to find the art program and explore the tools. We used the size tool, drag and drop and colouring changing tool. We created a piece of art using as many different tools as we could. If you would like to practice this more at home please use the card in the front of your reading record to log on to Purple Mash at home. It is great fun!

Fundraising day 2022

Class 1 have had a fantastic sports week. They have been very busy and active, enjoying participating in a wide range of sports. One of our favourites was athletics. We learnt how to throw the discus correctly, run effectively and work as a team in a relay. This week we designed our own sports medal, created some art work using a range of sport illustrations and making effective backgrounds and looked why the Commonwealth Games are important and their history. What a fab week, ending in an amazing sports day!

Geography Day!

 

We have had such a wonderful day. Firstly, the children were amazing as they went on a 2.5 mile walk today. They learnt and saw so much about their local environment and were super stars. When we returned to school we created a map of our walk, looking at the main features of the environment of the route we took. We also created some art work using things we found on our walk. Enjoy the photos.

Badminton - This term in PE we have been having a badminton coach. We are learning so many new skills as well as having great fun!

Happy half term!

 

Just a little request, as part of our English next week we will be creating an information text about a famous person of our choice. During the half term can you think of who you would like to create a fact page about an email the butterflies account so I can start collecting some information for you. If you would like to bring in any books or information into school on Monday that would be fab! You may want to write about a singer, an artist, author, sports person or actor. That is up to you. Enjoy and I cant wait to receive your emails.

Thank you

Mrs Morrison

Computing 

 

This term in computing we have been working on animations. We looked at all the tools to use and how to create our own animation. We have been working hard to create some wonderful animations that you can find on our purple mash login. 

Ready Steady Cook!

Wow, what a wonderful term we have had in the Butterflies. We have been so busy but I think our biggest achievement is our beautiful Christmas Carol Concert that we performed to you in the hall. It has been such a lovely term and the children have made us exceptionally proud. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Finally, we would like to say thank you so much for all our lovely cards and gifts.

Take care and stay safe

STEM week

 

Butterflies class had great fun during STEM week. We enjoyed our visit from Mr and Mrs Blair and we learnt a lot about the environment and we also made a torch. Butterflies also used newspaper to make clothes and modelled them in a fashion show!

 

HSBC came to visit Butterflies and talked to us about the coins we have. We searched for treasure and then rubbed the coins. We also added some money together and thought about spending and saving money carefully. We really enjoyed our day and learnt a lot!

Reverend Peter came to visit Butterflies and told us the Christmas story. We loved hearing it!

We have been learning how to play various world percussion instruments and djembe drums during our music sessions over the past two terms. We have been looking at dynamics and tempo changes while developing our rhythm skills! We performed what we've learnt in front of the school!

More Drumming!
