Bonsai Class

"Pupils interact sensibly and encouragingly with each other and enjoy working independently, in pairs, in groups or teams, both inside and outside the classroom. They are very flexible learners, which reflects their self-confidence to adapt". 

Ofsted Inspection Report, 2016

 

Welcome to Miss Mackenzie's class - March 2017

We hope you all had an enjoyable half term break with your families.

 

Our topic this term is 'London'. On Wednesday 11th January we were taken back in time to London in 1666 to find out about daily life before and after the Great Fire. In the morning session the children became chemists, leather workers, ink makers, bakers and weavers! They were then able to take the things that they had made home.

 

The costumes were amazing! 

 

 

 

In the afternoon session, we became archaeologists and were digging for clues. We found lots of interesting items made from different materials and we had to guess which job someone did from the items recovered.

We had a fantastic day! Thank you to all of our parent helpers who helped out on the day and to all of the parents who organised the costumes, it really added to the day and made us feel like we had stepped back in time!

 

 

We have had a very busy start to the year  but we have enjoyed all of the new things we have done and learnt. Here are a few of the things we have been up to...

 

We have each designed and made our very own hand puppets using a running stitch..

 

 

We have also made our own clocks to help tell the time to O'clock and half past!
