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.

Our Class Blog

 

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.

Science

We have made and labelled models of plants out of vegetables and then we ate them!

Trip to The Golden Hind

The class went on a trip to the Golden Hind in Brixham as part of our Intrepid Explorers topic. The children learnt all about life at sea. Our new book is called ‘How to Hide a Lion at School’ and tells the story of a lion who sneaked onto a school trip. Falcons’ challenge was to hide a lion picture on-board the ship and this will inspire our own writing next week.
