Welcome to Rabbits
Finished Wild Thing Masks
Our masks are finished and look how scary they look! Great work Rabbits.
West End Wild Thing Dance
We were very lucky to have West End Theatre Production to come in and teach us a 'Where the Wild Things Are' dance. The children were quick to get in to role and showed great expression, control and rhythm. Here are a few pictures of Rabbits in action.
Max's Private Boat - Science Investigation
I set Rabbit class the task of making their own private boat and to test how many Wild Things they can fit in before it sinks. Their first challenge was to create a boat that floats! They showed good structural knowledge and made minor adjustments to suit. They then had to predict how many they thought and carefully and fairly add Wild Things to their boat. Rabbits really showed great enthusiasm and scientific inquiry but the boats did get a bit soggy!
Wild Thing Pizzas!!
We had to design our own Wild Thing pizzas. Rabbits transformed into chefs this week and were able to practice their cutting and grating skills to add monstrous features to their Wild Thing pizzas. Of course, we had to sample how good they tasted afterwards!
Papier-Mâché Wild Things
We had a very sticky day designing and making our Papier-mâché masks. Rabbits showed creative teamwork and really got 'stuck' in. The masks are now dry and ready to be turned into ferocious Wild Things!!
Wild Thing Drama Production
Thank you to Fasbat for coming in and helping us put on an excellent drama production of 'Where the Wild Things Are'. Rabbits got really involved and put on an excellent show, well done!
Happy Pancake Day!
Year 1 enjoyed using their measuring capacity skills to make some tasty pancakes.
They were delicious!!
Sign2Sing - Spoiler alert!
A sneak peak of the Rabbit class Sign2Sing video. They have put a lot of hard work into learning the song and what an amazing job they have done!
Full whole school video to come...
River and Rowing Museum
We had an amazing trip to the River and Rowing museum. We had lots of time to investigate the museum and learn lots of fun facts about the river Thames and rowing boats, old and new. We had a great time exploring the Wind and the Willows exhibition and studied an abstract piece of art by John Piper. We used his painting to inspire us to replicate and create our own abstract drawing. We also learnt a new technique called screen printing and created a really wonderful painting of a fish swimming in the river. Thank you rabbits for an amazing day.
This week we have been improving our ball control. We were really getting the hang of dribbling, stopping and shooting the ball. What a great lesson!
Amazing Places and Spaces
This week Rabbits went on an exciting treasure hunt around the whole school. They used their excellent map reading skills to locate each clue. These clues helped us find out what our new topic is, 'Amazing Places and Spaces' and most importantly lead us to the long-forgotten, buried treasure! We decided that pirates had stolen the Queens special jewels and buried them in the wild garden. We must find a way of getting the Queens jewelry back!
