Neptune Class have really enjoyed their enquiry, 'how has play changed?' They have each made their own time capsule for children of the future. Inside their time capsules they have included objects, photographs and pictures of the playground, our school and toys and games they like to play today. Tomorrow, we are going to be writing a message to go inside our time capsules. We will then be able to take them home and bury them for future generations of children to find!
Venus Class have been enjoying our theme 'How has play changed?' We have been exploring toys from the past, sorting toys, creating playgrounds and looking at pictures of St Anne's from the olden days. We have also been exploring nouns in English and practising addition in mathematics! In computing we used the ipads to take pictures and document what our playground looks like in the present day. In PSHE we have been thinking about tolerance, how our differences make us special and we have also been exploring Anti-bullying!
Venus Class were so excited to find a suitcase from 83 years ago buried in the playground! A little girl had written a letter all about her time at St Anne's and included a few of her favourite toys and instructions on how to play some playground games such as Farmer's den, Mr Wolf and Deer Stalkers! We loved having a go at playing them ourselves and wanted to find out more about how things have changed! We then had a zoom call with a real Historian who gave us some tips on how to conduct our research! What a brilliant week!
Neptune Class- week 2: This week has been another busy and exciting week in Neptune Class. We could not believe it when we received a message saying that a strange discovery had been found on the playground. When we went outside, we found a time capsule buried in the ground containing a letter from a little girl called Mary, who came to St Anne's Infants' School 80 years ago! Inside the capsule, there were photographs of the school, toys she liked to play with and a list of games she liked to play. We enjoyed playing some of these games including 'follow the leader'. We were amazed to find out how different life at St Anne's was in the past! We were also surprised that some of the games and toys Mary played with as a little girl, are still played today. As part of our new enquiry, 'how has play changed?', we will be making our own time capsule to bury for future children of St Anne's to find. We also had a Zoom call with a Historian called Dr Ben who told us all about what he does as a Historian. We were able to ask him some very insightful questions and we learnt a lot about the past and what life was like. We also learnt about Remembrance day and the significance of wearing a poppy. We have also been very busy learning through the environment too!
