KS1 Tide Animations

Using the 2Animate app on Purple Mash, the children in KS1 have created some simple animations to show the ‘flow’ and ‘ebb’ of the tide at a beach.

They picked up the skills really quickly and added some of their own touches of detail to make the animations really fantastic.  Well done to them all.

Use the arrow keys at the top of the display board to see all the work.


Key Stage 1 is Blooming

Hardwick Park

As part of our topic, The Scented Garden we went to Hardwick Park. We explored the whole forest to find signs of Spring, this included birds such as a Blue Tit and a Chaffinch, as well as flowers and trees such as snow drops, daffodils and a magical Elder Tree.

We managed to find everything except 1 bird and flower – so Spring must be here!

Jack and the Beanstalk

After reading the book, Jack and the Beanstalk, we have wrote an account of what had happened as well as character descriptions. We have been acting out parts of Jack and the Beanstalk because in a few weeks we are writing the story as if we are Jack.

1AB Weather Forecast

As part of school’s Geography week we drew a map of the United Kingdom. We labelled the four countries of the UK and their capital cities. We were now ready to make our weather symbols, to match a typical daily weather pattern for the season of Summer, in the four countries of the UK.

Now we were ready to become weather presenters! We researched different weather presenters from around the UK and we listened out for key words or new words that we could use during our weather reports.

We hope you enjoy our broadcast!
