What Makes Our Planet Unique?
(Summer 2017)
 
We cannot believe it's the summer term already! This year is going by so quickly, but we look forward to an exciting term ahead.
 
This term Class Lyn are going to be super busy! Here are a few things that we will be looking at as part of our new topic:
  • Planting flowers
  • Growing vegetables
  • Healthy eating
  • Life cycles
  • Leaf rubbings
  • Observation drawings - flowers, butterflies...
We will also be linking our topic to English where we will be looking at writing stories, instructions, diaries and poems around relevant themes, ideas and stories.  
 
Where in the world is Bratton Fleming?
(Spring Term 2017)
 
To get the children excited about our new topic, Mrs Kellaway invited Mr Payne in from the village to  speak to the children about how Bratton Fleming has changed over the years. He showed the children lots of old and new photographs, which they found really interesting and helped them to remember lots of key facts!
 
For our Wow Day, when the weather was finally on our side, the children enjoyed a nice walk around the village. It was a great experience and the children loved spotting all of the things that they had remembered from their talk with Mr Payne. Nicky from the local village shop even came out to talk to the children too, before we finished our walk with a bear hunt back to school!
Our Reading Garden - let's catch the reading bug!
(March 2017)
 
We've spruced up our reading garden in Class Lyn and the children are loving it!
 
As well as reading on our mini sofa, the children have been reading in the London bus and in the London tube. They have been enjoying writing their own book reviews; answering the questions dotted around; having a go at the reading challenges and reading all of the tricky words on the wall. Class Lyn have even been helping to sort alien words and real words to feed to our class aliens - Obb and Bob.
London Skyline Artwork!
 (March 2017)
 
This week we have been learning all about London landmarks. This inspired us to do create some great artwork and both Class Bray and Class Lyn did a fantastic job painting the London skyline.
 
The children used water colours to create their sky, before printing with 3D shapes and black acrylic paint to create a silhouette of their chosen landmark(s).
Which London landmarks can you spot?
Mmmm... Pancakes!
 
Class Lyn have been having great fun learning all about healthy eating with Mrs Crockford, but they had even more fun making srummy pancakes with healthy toppings. All of the children loved trying their own delicious pancakes!! They've even  written instructions on how to make them too.
 
WELCOME TO CLASS LYN'S SPACE MUSEUM!
We hope you enjoy it!
(November 2016)
 
For their project this term the children were asked to create a poster or an artefact on space. The children did a fantastic job, so we decided to showcase their hard work in our very own class museum. The children loved seeing their work on display around the room and explaining their work to the other classes as they visited. Check out some of their creations below!
 
HELP! THE ALIENS HAVE LANDED!
(September 2016)
 
For our topic last term, Class Lyn and Class Bray had great fun dressing up in space themed costumes and completing spacey activities. The children looked space-tastic! It was wonderful seeing all of their costumes and what they had created throughout the day.
