Feeling Good Week

This week was feeling good week and the children have been talking about what makes them and others happy.

 

We read the book ‘The huge bag of worries.’ We discussed what worries Jenny came across and what happened when she didn’t deal with them. We spoke about the suggestions the old lady gave her and if they would use these suggestions to help them. The children wrote some of their worries down and we placed them in Hive’s bag of worries. We then went onto the playground and blew our worries away using bubbles. The children then were given the opportunity to share their worries with an adult if they wished.

 

As a class we looked at 'Empathy X-Ray' and discussed the good feelings relating to showing empathy and compassion to others.

 

The children in Hive watched the movie 'inside out' and used this to help them understand more about their emotions and how to manage them.

Iceberg investigation

The children explored ice and looked at its properties. They discussed and drew diagrams to show the changing state between freezing and melting. The children then carried out an investigation to see which objects would freeze at the top of an iceberg and which would freeze at the bottom. They made a prediction and gave reasons to why they made these predictions. The children were able to debate their opinions and write up their findings.

Capacity

The children in Hive have been learning about capacity and volume. They have learnt that capacity is the amount of liquid a container can hold and volume is the amount of liquid which is in the container. The children worked together to read the scales of different measuring jugs and were able to estimate and order them from smallest to greatest

Place Value

In maths the children have been looking at place value and have been using different resources to represent numbers. They have been focusing on two digit numbers. The children have played numerous games to show their understanding of the value of each digit and have been ordering numbers from smallest to greatest and vice versa.

Non-chronological report - The Arctic

The children in Hive researched, planned and wrote a non-chronological report all about The Arctic. The children used a range of resources to help them find out all about the weather, who lived there, what animals were in the Arctic and how the Inuit people travelled around. We found out lots of interesting facts!

Spring 1 Homework Grid

The children in Hive have been learning all about volcanoes. They identified how they were formed and learnt the different parts. The children created a volcano using paper mache and carried out a science experiment by creating a chemical reaction. This supported the understanding of what happens when a volcano erupts.
