Discovery Class cup winners 2021-2022
Easter egg hunt!
Show and tell
Henry brought in some sheep ribs and a sheep skull which he had found in an abandoned farm. Discovery Class were very interested in these objects and asked lots of brilliant questions.
We made Mr St John a yummy Victoria sponge cake!
Red nose day!
Discovery Class had a great time working in small groups exploring how to programme the beebots to go forwards, backwards and to turn. The children also enjoyed seeing if they could predict where the beebot would end up using a counter and seeing if they could programme their beebot to go through a tunnel!
World Book Day 2022!
In DT we designed our very own crown, deciding what materials we were going to use and why. We then followed our designs/plans to make our very own crowns!
Observational drawings of flowers
As part of our science learning we have planted runner bean seeds. We are going to look after them and observe how they change overtime.
Our elf on the shelf left us snowballs so we could have a fun snowball fight at break time!
Exciting new outdoor equipment!
We have got some new exciting outdoor equipment in our outdoor area including a mud kitchen, new sand pit, table and chairs and road safety equipment! The children have thoroughly enjoyed playing and exploring this.

Some fantastic independent maths work from this week!
We had a very exciting visit from Blue the puppy today. The children asked lots of questions to find out more information about him and how to look after a dog. We even got to stroke him, he was very fluffy!
In computing this week we learnt about how we can share our learning. We learnt about how images are stored on the ipad and we can connect the ipad to the laptop using a USB cable. Please see below some of the photographs the children wanted to share with you from our first week back!
We have been learning about the celebration Easter. The children have enjoyed Easter egg hunts, Easter crafts and more!
In art we have been looking at the painting 'Castle and Sun' by Paul Klee. We have been looking at different shapes and colours in his painting. Discovery class enjoyed experimenting mixing primary colours to make secondary colours. The children then created their own castle and sun paintings inspired by Paul Klee using primary and secondary colours.
We have enjoyed working with the professional artist Rachel this week to create some wonderful, bright mosaics that represent Hambridge school.
Position and direction
Discovery class enjoyed directing their friends around the outdoor area and through obstacles using the language forwards, left and right.
We have planted sunflowers, sweet peas, green beans, geraniums and continue to care for our daffodils, crocuses and various other plants. The children are really enjoying growing their own plants and flowers and we can’t wait to see whose sunflower grows the tallest this year!
