This half term was an incredibly busy one for Oak with lots of amazing highlights.
Right at the start of September we visited the Bluebell Railway where we experienced what life might have been like for an evacuee in World War Two. We travelled on a steam train through beautiful countryside (and a very dark tunnel) arriving at Horsted Keynes station. On arrival we had our ID cards checked before being chosen by our new adopted family.
We also made some wartime carrot scones. The recipe was a real one from the 1940s and only used ingredients that would have been easily available. We had great fun weighing, mixing and grating and were surprised by how delicious our finished scones tasted!
One of our biggest challenges was the shelters project. We had to design and build a shelter using a wooden frame. It had to withstand having a 500g weight dropped on it from the height of one metre. It also had to be waterproof. Although some of our shelters were damaged (and some destroyed) many of them survived intact. Most even withstood having 1kg dropped on them - amazing!
Just before half term we had art day. Using Frida Kahlo's 'The Bus' as our inspiration we used ourselves as models to re-create our own versions. They are currently on display outside Oak Class.
AUTUMN 1 PE LESSONS
This half term in P.E, Oak class have been learning about gymnastics. They have learnt about the different types of balances, jumps and turns. The children have started adding these different elements together to form a gym routine. In their outdoor P.E lessons, they have been practising their Netball skills including the different throws, not running with the ball and pivoting. Oak class have started created their own games using these skills. Well done to Oak class for an excellent start to these topics!
