Camel Class (2016/17)

On Monday 10th we had a visitor to Camel Class from the National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow.  Cat came and taught us all about Lobsters.  We looked at shells and claws, we saw eggs and baby lobsters and we even did a silly lobster dance!

           

The crab shell comes from a ‘Pasty crab’ can you guess why it has that name?

Wow, what a fantastic and busy term we have had in Camel Class!  We have had great fun learning all about Cornish artist John Dyer.  We transformed our role play area into a large scale painting.  If you look very closely what can you spot swimming in the sea?

We have also painted our own John Dyer pictures.  Here is our gallery, please pop in at the end of the day if you would like to see your child’s masterpiece!

        

 

In the final few weeks we have some great things planned for the children including a visit from The National Lobster Hatchery and a beach cleaning trip with surfers Against Sewage.

Summer Term!

Over the Easter Holidays Camel Class home learning was to build a model or paint a picture of a lighthouse.  The children (and adults) have made a fantastic effort and here are some of their models.  Some of them even have lights that work and helicopter landing pads! Can you guess what any of them have been made from?

This term our project is ‘Have you got a drop to spare?’ and we will be learning all about water. Please see the links for our class letter and plans or our learning.

What a busy term we have had in Camel Class!  The children have learnt about all sorts of different jobs.  here are some pictures of our trips, visitors and learning.

We had a brilliant trip to Pizza Express to learn about being a chef and even made some delicious pizzas.  What would you put on your pizza?

              

Keith from South West Ambulance service taught us about his job and let us explore the inside of the ambulance

We held a job fair to share our learning and to help some other children decide what they would like to be when they are older.  We made information leaflets to try and persuade children to try different jobs.

Who would you like to be?

We had a fantatsic day on Monday. Children looked amazing in their outfits. We had a variety of aspirations and ambitions, which included  farmers, ballet dancer, jockey, police force and a game programmer.

We had an amazing day testing out different jobs and looking at what we need to do those jobs. We also looked at different equipment and how it works.  Can you guess what jobs we are doing?

 

 

Welcome back and Happy New Year!

This term Camel Class wanted to learn about different jobs and are very interested in the building site at school.  We are launching our new topic with a day to dress up as your dream job, I can’t wait to see all your different costumes and ideas!

Over the next few weeks we will learn all about different jobs on a building site.  We will then learn about jobs in the food industry and will end the topic by looking at the emergency services.  Please look at the links below to see more details of our plans.

What a busy term we have had in Camel Class!  We have learnt all about the woods and have even managed to impress Mrs Scott (our science leader) with our knowledge of leaves and trees. We have been really creative this term and have explored working with clay and other collage materials.  Here are some examples of our fantastic creations!
