Bayton CE Primary School
Our theme for Spring is ‘Superheroes’ and our first focus will be upon the book Traction Man Meets Turbo Dog. Within this theme children will be taught English, History, Geography, Art and D.T. We introduced children to the new theme with a Superhero dress up day! The children are already really enjoying our first book - Traction Man Meets Turbo Dog. So far children have written story predictions, descriptions and they have written in role as a character.
As part of our class Topic, Under the Sea, the children visited Birmingham Sealife Centre where they enjoyed a tour from Lee around the centre learning about the natural habitats of different sea creatures, as well as the importance of caring for them properly. The children especially enjoyed the Ocean Tunnel where they saw Malaki the sea turtle as well as sharks and stingrays. They also saw Beverly the octopus and warmed their hands over the stingray water to encourage them to come to the surface. Check out some of our photographs!
For RE our children have been learning about the birth of Jesus. The children took part in a nativity trail around the playground with some pupils dressing up to act out the parts. More recently we visited the church in Bayton to learn more about the nativity and to also learn about Christingle. They have also make their own Christingles to reinforce their learning.
The children enjoyed a visit from Charlotte from The Dogs Trust where they learnt all about how to look after a dog, particularly what to feed a dog and what not to.
Our Topic for this term is Under the Sea. Children enjoyed studying The Storm Whale book during the first half term. We made whales in Art, took part in drama activities and undertook a number of writing activites linking to the story including letters, diary entries and our own versions of the story. This half term we will be focussing upon the book Dougal's Deep Sea Diary and will take part in a special visit to the Sealife Centre in Birmingham.
The children recently enjoyed a creative arts afternoon working collaboratively with the Y3&4 children to create abstract artwork based on Kandinsky's circles using paints, using paints, felts and other materials.
