Did you know that we are called Potter Class after Beatrix Potter? She was born over 150 years ago! On our web page you will find lots of exciting things that we have been learning about and creating in school.
Circus Science Workshop
To start our Circus Topic we had a workshop focused on materials and forces in Science. We loved our workshop! Have a look at a snippet of Tommy's recount he wrote about it.
'Yesterday was a special day! We did some circus science activities. It was so awesome. Silvia explained what to do. We did six scientific experiments but my favourite two activities were marble run and the human cannon ball. Don't worry no teachers or children were harmed! ...'
Letchworth Tennis Club
On Tuesday 4th June we went on a school trip to the tennis club. We took part in lots of different sports including curling, volley ball and even a group dance! We had a fantastic time and Miss Hollis was so proud of how sensible and amazing we were. We want to say thank you to the pupils from Hitchin Girls School for guiding us through the morning.
Garden City Topic
During the first half of the Summer term we learnt all about Garden Cities., and we became town planners. We went on a walk around Letchworth to look at the features of the town because Letchworth was the first ever garden city! Did you know that it was created by Ebenezar Howard?
We used the information from the trip to design our own garden city and we presented our creations to Mr Mabb, the town planner. We loved having Mr Mabb and his colleague Chloe in to look at our work. He thought we all worked really hard so he awarded us with a town planners trophy.
We have had a brilliant Forest School fortnight! During the two weeks, we have sawed wood, drilled wooden disks to make medals, had a year group camp fire, made Forest School 'bling', created birds nests, made willow crowns and we've also been visited by many lovely people.
Look below at some photographs of us.
Today we have been outside to learn all about camouflage. We went on an adventure around the wild life area to find some woolly worms however, we could only find brightly coloured ones. Then we talked about how some woolly worms blended into the wild life area because they were camouflaged. We loved creating masks so we could blend in and become invisible!
Today we have been to the Cinema to watch Peter Rabbit which we were very excited about because our class author is Beatrix Potter.
We walked safely to the Cinema and were very excited when we arrived. We all really enjoyed the film and wrote about our journey when we got back to school.
Thank you to the parents who came along to help us!
See below for pictures of our journey.
