Bowland Class – Summer

Marvellous Machines



Look what fun we have learning outside! We had great fun getting better at counting, making regular and irregular 2D shapes out of twigs, practising using standard units of measurement to make muddy potions, practising making repeating patterns using natural objects and painting 2D shapes using muddy water and twigs!

In R.E we have been learning about Jesus’ world, compared to our world. We learnt about his home, the food he ate and the type of clothes he wore. Reception children helped to make a huge role-play area in the style of Jesus’ house.

Enterprising Bowland Class!

As part of our Science topic we created our own herb garden. We then sold our herbs to parents at home time and made a profit of £5.00! We sold thyme, mint, coriander, parsley and chives… yum yum!

Our focus religion is Hinduism… look at how we made super colourful pictures using powder paint to celebrate Holi! We love to learn about how diverse our world is.

We have loved learning about LS Lowry in Art. Our focus was digital media…can you see our individual pictures in the style of Lowry? We used the mouse to click and drag images into place.

In History we have been learning about the Titanic. We created a huge Titanic in class and role-played the life of a first class passenger. We used sources of evidence to compare the life of first, second and third class passengers. We wrote an imaginative letter from a passenger on board the ship. We also examined and discussed different reasons why the ship sank.

Reception children have loved being “Chatterboxes” with the more elderly members of our community. Can you see us developing our communication and language through art activities with a textile artist Julia Allison?  We are making a beautiful cloth to illustrate the wonderful friendships that we have made.

We have been busy Computer Scientists… programming beebots to follow a set of instructions known as an algorithm. We also used the beebot app to practise creating and completing algorithms!

As Scientists Bowland Class have been learning about plants. We have learnt about the parts of the plants. planted seeds and observed the germination process, grown plants in our garden, and also grown lettuce and cabbage to eat!

We have been getting better at saying the names of basic transport ” en francais!” Our pronunciation is superb, and we can even read and write these simple words in French! Tres bien!

Year 1 and 2 children are helping textile artist Julia Allison to design a new cloth for class worship areas based on one of our core Christian values, friendship.Everybody illustrated a definition of friendship and chose an individual piece of textile for the cloth. We can’t wait to see the finished product!
