Our last week of term brought with it some exciting activities including erupting our home-made volcanoes.
This week Oak class had our handball in-house competition. Pupils have been practising all term the skills of handball, including passing, shooting and fair play.
Oak class had an exciting week this week with our science topic on rocks, fossils and soil. We took part in a rock expedition around Hadlow to discover the jobs of rocks in our own environment.
"Before we went out on our trip we played a game called Last man Standing, where we had to answer questions about rocks. I didn't do very well but Dylan was the last man standing as he answered all the questions correctly!" - Raymond
This week we have continued our work in maths on number and place value, looking specifically at comparing and order numbers.
"I really enjoyed comparing numbers in different ways this week. We had to work with counters, base 10, place value charts, dice and more to make numbers and show which way the crocodile would face to eat the bigger number." - Ronan
This week we also had a go at creating our own volcano explosive art and descriptive poetry. Here are some of the poems and art pieces we created this week.
Highlights for week 2 include exploring our maths unit on numbers and place value, our science topic of rocks, fossils and soil, and our discovering invasion strategies in sport for PE.
Welcome back to Hadlow Primary and to the new Oak class. The new children of Oak class should feel very excited about their new classroom and discovering how independent they can be. Here are just a few shots of what the learning environment has to offer:
This week we have also begun to learn about our new geography topic, Volcanoes and Earthquakes.
'My favourite activity this week was when we made models of the Earth. I was really fun to made the different layers of the Earth.' - Katie A
