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 - Spring term 2018

Please find information about our learning in Term 3 and 4 here.

 

 On Tuesday the 30th of January Year 1 had their Great Fire of London day where they jumped right into the action all the way back to 1966 in London! The children started their morning by becoming apprentices on the streets of London, learning skills that would have been common for workers at that time. These included; Barber surgeon, Apothecary, Leather worker, Chandler, Perfumer, Baker, Metal worker, Seamstress and Weaver.As the children learnt their new trades, the fire had spread!  With the flames drawing closer, the children had to take action to try and stop it by tearing down local buildings.

 

In the afternoon, the children helped to evacuate what was left of the charred city, digging through mud and being architects. They found all sorts of belongings belonging to trade workers.

 

 

 

Year 1 have also had the opportunity of meeting a real life Beefeater! Alan Kingshott came to visit the children on the 29th of January to tell all the children about his very exciting job! We learnt lots of new facts, for example the 6 ravens that live at The Tower of London who have their wings clipped so that they can stay at the Tower due to previous bird droppings on the astronomers telescopes years ago. We also got to try on a real beefeaters hat!

 

 

Bonsai class have already been busy and hard at work creating their very own hand puppets! They started off by sewing their puppet together using a running stitch and then decorated them using felt, wool, foam, pom poms, buttons and pipe cleaners. We think they look amazing and we can`t wait to play with them!
