Lion Class E-Safety

Lions Class have shown excellent knowledge and maturity in their e-safety unit in Computing this half term. Today’s lesson involved researching the pros and cons of using social media apps such as Tik Toc, Instagram, WhatsApp and more. Groups presented to the class after using websites like net-aware.org to find out more.

Lions Science

Lions have been learning about evolution and inheritance in Science. As the children have spent time focusing on the work of Charles Darwin and the Galápagos Islands, they conducted an experiment to see how many seeds could be picked up by different shaped ‘beaks’. This replicated the different types of finches Darwin studied on the islands and what food they need to survive. The children also learnt that repeating an experiment helped us to get rid of unusual results and how we can work out the average.

Lions E-Safety

Lions have enjoyed a unit about E-Safety this half term. They learnt about online relationships and how to help someone experiencing harm on the internet, gender stereotypes in the media and how we should challenge these, and we were introduced to a Google games website called Interland which helped us to consolidate all our learning.

Lion Class Cooking

After spending time planning and designing two puff pastry dishes, Lions Class were very excited to finally make them today. As the children constructed their dishes, wonderful sweet and savoury smells filled the classroom. We finished the day taste-testing and evaluating the pastries based on their appearance, texture and flavour. 

Lions Class Science

Lions Class learnt about Mary Leakey in their ‘Scientists and Inventors’ unit in Science. They then had a go at doing their own excavations of real fossils in the outdoor area. They used a grid to record where they found fossils before drawing detailed observations. 

Day of Calmness Workshop

Each class enjoyed a session of calmness thanks to the Small Schools Partnership hosting a Day of Calmness workshop at our school. We learnt some techniques to help us maintain peace and relaxation that we can do everyday.
