Mangoes

Welcome to the Mangoes!

 

This page will help explain some of the awesome learning taking place in our class!

We used the skill of sketching to create an artists impression of Florence Nightingale...

In our project Hall of Fame, we have been learning about significant historical people from our locality who made an impact on the world. Today we used the skill of chronology to timeline Sir Christopher Cockerell...

Wet play in the Mangoes

We love our feel good Friday afternoons!

SCIENCE... Today we became scientists and worked scientifically to find out which cleaning solution would be best to clean oil from a birds feather. We used soap, water, sanitiser and washing up liquid. We fill find out the results on Friday once the feathers have dried.

FEEL GOOD FRIDAY...We are loving our Friday afternoons, we have so much fun. Last week we made helicopters and learned the skill of drawing people. Just look at our faces! So much joy.

We can't use our actual library at the moment because it could break a bubble but our lovely librarian Mrs Needham has created class library boxes so we can have library time in our classrooms instead... and that's just what we did........ "A book is a dream that you hold in your hands"

*POLLUTION ...WHAT'S THE SOLUTION?*

We became scientists today! We wanted to see if we could reduce the size of our waste to ensure our bins don't overflow again. We used forces to reduce the size of the materials. Scrunch, twist, fold, tear, squash!

We were getting some fresh air outside when we spotted Mrs West litter picking around the school grounds, she was disgusted with all the waste that had blown into our school over the weekend. She also said our school bins were over flowing and things could not go on like this! She challenged us to find a solution to all the pollution. We set off straight away sorting all the rubbish into groups this is called classifying materials. We also wondered if more waste is found in areas with more human features?? We will keep you updated on our findings...

To really understand where waste is coming from we need to be experts on our local area so we can find a solution to all the pollution. To do this we are going to need to explore and investigate like geographers. Today we practiced reading a map and following a route...

We had a long chat about worries today and read the Cautious Caterpillar story. We decided that sometimes change can be exciting and we shouldn't worry too much when things are a bit different. We made cool unworry islands that we can imagine we visit when we feel a bit anxious, there are no worries on the unworry island, just all of our favourite things...

We had so much fun in the woods, we sat in our new seating area, can you believe that the roof is made from old sails from a sailing boat!! We also built dens and looked for creatures and critters. Such a fun afternoon. Rock and Roll...

Wow! It has been an incredible few days seeing everyone again and getting used to our new class! We are so excited to be the new Mangoes team! We rock!!
