Welcome to Falcons

Year 1/2 Falcons is our newest class taught by Mrs Bradshaw, supported by Mrs Life.  This is where the children begin Key Stage One.  The classroom is equipped with computers, an Interactive Whiteboard, an i Pad, Bee-Bots and Probots.  Falcons classroom is a light and airy learning environment.  It leads out onto an outside balcony area which the children and parents have planted with scented herbs and shrubs.  The children use the outside area as an extension of their classroom for outdoor learning.

Falcons class recently attended the KS1 summer sports festival at KEVICCS. The children enjoyed 8 different stations with a variety of activities and all joined in with great enthusiasm. Harbertonford even got a mention from Mr Lyndon for great behaviour and waiting so patiently for other teams to arrive. Well done Falcons!

Falcons had a fantastic trip to the Plymouth Aquarium on Thursday. Activities included starfish feeding, a shark talk, feeding the giant octopus and a hunt for answers to questions that the children had prepared. Falcons ended the day by watching scuba divers swimming in the shark tank and even learnt some diving sign language!

Falcons class had an indoor archery lesson recently. They learn’t about the sport and how to use the bow. It was quite tricky to get the arrow to hit the target but Gilbert managed to hit the bullseye!

Science

The children were testing how absorbent different types of paper are, holding the paper in the water for exactly 30 seconds and using rulers to measure how high up the paper the water travelled.
