100 challenge

posted 1 May 2021, 09:57 by Bethany Wells

Cedars have been enjoying taking part in challenges based around the number 100 in honour of Captain Sir Tom Moore's 100 laps of his garden which saw him raise a huge amount of money for the NHS. Some of the challenges we took part in included: writing the numbers 1 - 100 in 100 seconds, completing 10 circuits of our hopscotch on the playground, writing 100 words about living in a Stone Age house, drawing a funny picture in 100 seconds and finding ways in which to say 100 in different languages. There are many challenges which the children can be taking part in over the bank holiday weekend whilst at home. 

Stone Age art

In Art, we have been creating our own versions of artworks based on cave paintings from the Stone Age. We had a lot of fun drawing our images onto large stones before choosing whether to use pencils or paint to decorate them further. At the end of the lesson, we held a Silent Gallery so that we could go around and appreciate everyone’s hard work and creations.

These last three weeks, we have enjoyed being back in school and being able to play with all of our friends again. We have enjoyed our topic of Historical Heroes where we have learnt about a range of different people who have had a significant impact on the history of racism around the world. The children have produced a range of written work from a biography about Rosa Parks to a riddle about Harriet Tubman. Some of our highlights from this half term included creating our own scrolls of Human Rights, using the wall bars in PE, creating our own Salvador Dali inspired portraits and using the claves to investigate the pulse of Lean On Me in music.

In DT this week, Cedars have been bringing their kite designs to life with the range of materials provided for them. After a very productive lesson everyone had a kite to show for all their hard work with some great individual designs added to them. 

Tudor monarchs

Our writing focus for this week has been creating an advert for a new Tudor monarch, a lot of us are hoping the new King or Queen will be kinder than Henry VIII! We've also been comparing Elizabeth II's role of queen to those that reigned over England between 1485 and 1603. We were interested in the fact that she played a role in WW2 as a mechanic and truck driver as well as learning that she currently reigns over 16 countries. 

Topic Day

This week, Cedars have travelled back in time to 1485 to the start of Henry Tudor's reign in England. We spent time on Monday looking at Tudor coins and using our observations of these to influence our own coin designs. Some of us even challenged ourselves to include Latin writing on our designs and had great fun learning the Latin words for King and Queen.

It has been a busy few weeks in Cedars as we continue to look at our Rainforest topic. We have written our own stories based on the animals we have learnt that live in the rainforest, after looking at lots of short stories to inspire us. This week, we have also put together an information guide about rainforests which include all of the interesting facts we have learnt since coming back to school in September. In our Computing lessons, we have been learning how to create a PowerPoint and adding in pictures and transitions to make our slide shows interesting to our audience. We have been continuing to learn our street dance in PE which is nearly finished and looking great! 

Autumn 1 Week 2

posted 19 Sept 2020, 09:33 by Bethany Wells

This week has been full of lots of exciting lessons for Cedars, with many of these based on our new topic called Rainforest. We have learnt where rainforests can be found in the world as well as how the weather is different from that in the UK and the different layers found there. We have started an art project based on the animals that live in the rainforest and enjoyed drawing and sharing our artwork with the class. A few of our other favourite lessons of the week have included our French lesson where we were learning members of the family and continuing to learn our street dance in our PE lesson.

This week we have been settling back into school. We have enjoyed seeing our friends and getting to know our new classmates. We have started learning about our new topic, Rainforests as well as completing some maths and literacy activities. We have enjoyed getting to know our new teacher, Miss Wells and getting into a new routine around the school. 

Traders and Raiders

Our topic this half term is called Traders and Raiders. We have been learning about the history of the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons, researching what they were like, where they were from, where they lived and what day to day life was like for them. This week we have investigated the clothing worn by Anglo-Saxons and learnt about their travel from Denmark, Norway and Sweden in Longboats. We even created our own longboat in the classroom and used shields made in art/DT lessons to re-enact the arrival of the Saxons.
