Halloween Magic Potions

Panthers were busy making magic potions for Halloween in preparation for creating a set of instructions for a recipe.

Measuring Length (06.11.19)

 Panthers have returned back from half-term today all ready for some super learning!

Today we have been comparing the lengths of classroom objects. 

I introduced the children to the term 'estimating' and they started to estimate how many cubes long items were before testing. I was really impressed with how fantastic they did.

Halloween Fun

Panthers look AMAZING in their Halloween outfits all ready for the party today... we have scary clowns, zombies & even spider & unicorn princesses!

Guide Dog Visit

On Thursday (17/10) in Panthers we had a fantastic visit from Jackie & Bruce! Bruce is Jackie's Guide Dog from the Guide Dogs Trust UK.

The children loved having Bruce in class, he was so wonderful with them.

They asked Jackie lots of fantastic questions about how having a guide dog has changed her life. We learnt about how Bruce guides Jackie safely in busy areas, on buses and trains. Jackie showed us the food Bruce eats and some of us even gave him some treats.

Panthers now know it's really important not to distract a guide dog when they have their uniform on because they are busy working. 

Funny Faces

As part of our learning in Topic on 'People who help us' Panthers looked at the role of a Dentist.

We learnt all about Dentists and the different jobs they do and then created our own funny face smiles.

We had to count how many teeth we have in our mouth (so learnt some Science too!) and use precise cutting skills to create our fabulous pieces of art.

Visit to the Co-Op for baking ingredients

This week some of Panthers helped Amy on a trip to the co-op.

In Literacy this week, we created a recipe and method for making Banana & Oat Cookies.

We then used our Numeracy skills to estimate the amount of money the ingredients would cost and practiced expanding money at the co-op. 

On our return we followed our methods to make our cookies, there were 6 steps to complete. They tasted great!

Fire Station Visit

We had an amazing morning learning all about Fire Engines and Firefighters with our visit from the team up at Rastrick Fire Station. Panthers class asked some fantastic questions about the equipment they use and loved exploring the Fire Engine. 

PE - Health & Fitness

It's the start of the new year and in PE we are focusing on 'Health & Fitness' to go with our topic 'People who help us'. Take a look at the Panthers class in action... 

People Who Help Us - Artwork

This week Panthers have learnt lots about the Fire Service and how they help people.

We read a story about Charlie, a Firefighter and created some fantastic artwork using handprints.

Panthers loved learning about 'hazards' in the home (electric cables, candles, gas hobs etc) and why they can be dangerous. 

Take a look at our amazing artwork...


Welcome back to Panthers

Hi everybody and welcome back to Panthers class for the new year. It's exciting times ahead with new class members joining the gang and two new teachers joining the team. Say a big hello to Ian and Amy, the new class teachers in Panthers. 

This term our topic is 'people who help us' and we will be looking at producing a fact file on the police, Doctors and firefighters including a visit from a fire engine later on in the term.

So far we have been out in the garden with Andrew digging up potatoes preparing for the harvest season. Take a look...
