Welcome to Hobby Class
Hello and welcome to Spring term in Hobby class.
It has been wonderful to have all the children back in the classroom. They have all settled back brilliantly.
Our topic this term is 'Alien Invasion' with a focus on Space. We have begun learning about the different planets in the solar system and are incorporating our space topic into many of our lessons including Art where we are experimenting with different mediums such as chalks, water colour and oil/water marbling to create different planets. (pictures to follow!)
Our day for P.E this term is Monday. Please could children come into school in their P.E kit. This term we are practising our hockey skills.
Outdoor learning is on a Thursday. Please could children come into school wearing old clothes that they don't mind getting dirty as we will be outside in all weather! Please could they also bring in wellies if they have them or a change of footwear for indoors/outdoors.
We have exciting plans to grow various different vegetables in our raised bed and polytunnel as well as sunflowers. The children have already been working hard digging the soil to prepare as well as tidying the rest of the garden area. They also will be painting and decorating wooden signs to display in the garden for their vegetable growing.
Homework will be set on Google classroom and we would like it to be handed in on a Friday. Reading records will also be collected in on a Friday. Children are keeping their allocated reading books in school to read each day but please could children also keep up their reading at home. For this, they can read a home book of their choice and then record in PEN in their reading record. (If anyone doesn't have a book they want to read at home, they are very welcome to borrow one from the library to keep for home use until they have finished it.)
Thursday 1st April
This Morning, during outdoor learning , we had a class Easter hunt in the garden finding paper eggs. Some were easier to find than others! We then planted carrots, peas, potatoes, onions and radish in our class raised bed.
Some of us spent a mindful morning creating wonderful signs for our Hobby garden.
Wednesday 31st March
Today in Hobby, we created spring scenes with a stained glass/ silhouette effect using coloured tissue paper and black card.
For outdoor learning this week, we made nature inspired bookmarks. We explored the garden to find inspiration for our designs, then using water colour and ink, we chose a tranquil area to create our bookmarks.
Merry Christmas Hobby class!!
We hope you all have a truly magical Christmas! Rest up, spend time with your families and we can't wait to see you all in the new year!!
For a bit of end-of-term fun we have put together our own covid version of '12 Days of Christmas'. Thank you to Hobby class for the inspiration - you know who you are!
We hope it brings a smile to your faces!
Love Miss Grant and Miss Hellyer x
Over the last two weeks we have been working in groups, creating powerpoint presentations about various aspects of Native American Life. We have researched Weapons, religion and beliefs, entertainment, clothing and tools used. Yesterday we presented these to the rest of the class.
