Trip to Wat Tyler Country Park

 

We had a wonderful trip to Wat Tyler Country park to learn about plants and animals.  We hunted and identified minibeasts in their different habitats and enjoyed pond dipping and finding newts (among other animals).  We learnt a lot about butterflies and moths, exoskeletons, invertebrates and many other things and above all else we had fun and created memories.  Thank you for your support with the trip and to all those parents who helped on the day.

 

Don't forget our Class Assembly on Tuesday 20th March at 2.40. 

We have been practising really hard and can't wait for you to see it.

Stone Age Week - We spent the afternoon in our outdoor area re-creating scenes from "The Stone Age Boy" using only natural resources. Great teamwork and creativity and loads of fun!

Aliens Come to Milton Hall

 

What an exciting day we have had.  We arrived at school to find an alien spaceship had crashed into the KS1 playground.  Scientists were investigating and the whole area had been cordoned off to keep us all safe.  We found out that the aliens were friendly so that was a relief.  After an emergency assembly, Scott Class discovered some strange events that had happened during the night:

 - Luca heard a crash at around 2.00 a.m.

 - Emma said her bedroom window had cracked in 3 places.

- Bridgette and Alfie had both heard strange UFO type whirring noises during the night

- Alfie saw an alien ship bounce in his garden and an alien fell out.

- Jude and Kishan could speak alien language so were available to act as translators if needed

- Anh and Yohann both heard aliens speaking outside their houses.

- there were flickering lights in Oscar's house.

- Lydia heard a crunching sound in her chest of drawers

- Jude said an alien had touched his skin when he was sleeping and it had felt scaly, skinny and hard

- The temperature had changed in Daniel's bedroom.

 

...all very wierd.

 

The creativity didn't stop there; we learnt a new alien language and wrote secret messages telling the aliens about ourselves; we built space rockets for the aliens and even sewed them some clothes to keep them warm and we made movie trailers telling the aliens about life in England.

 

 

We had so much fun working with the Rainbow Theatre Company and bringing 1666 to life.  We all had a part in the play.  Some of us had to row people up and down the River Thames to help them escape the fire, some of us helped Samuel Pepys write his diary with a quill pen and some of us had to form a line to throw buckets of water at the fire.  The costumes and the smoke machine added to the excitement and even the plague doctor paid us a visit - a fantastic afternoon which has helped us with our writing.

Remembrance Day - We have talked about the meaning of Remembrance Day and created our own poppy field.

The Dictionary of 1666

Scott class have been looking at the great fire of London in 1666. Here is our visual dictionary of some of the terms from that time.

We are loving learning about the Great Fire of London and how London has changed from 1666.  Mr Cutler helped us experience London as it is now by showing us some films in the immersion room.  It was VERY exciting!  We saw The London Eye, The River Thames, London Bridge and Tower Bridge, the Houses of Parliament as well as busy roads and lots of traffic.  We don't think London has always been like that.

 

 

MODERN LONDON 2017

This week in Scott Class we have been finding out about houses in our local area.  We took a short stroll around the block to look at houses and recorded what we saw on a tally chart.  Later that day we designed a house for Barnaby Bear and we finished the week by making our designs into a 3D model.  Here are just a few of our creations.  What do you think of them?

 

We loved visiting the school library this week.  What a magical place!

 

Finding a quiet corner to fully immerse ourselves in someone's imagination; there's nothing better.

 

We carefully selected a book to take home and look forward to enjoying this book for up to 2 weeks.

 

Some of us chose our favourite author and some chose non-fiction books.
