  • Introducing the Beebots to our new library!

    Published 10/06/22

    Today in Amazon Class we took our computing lesson to the library, where we used programming and debugging to introduce the Beebots to the library. The children worked in groups to programme their Beebots around obstacles in the library, showing determination, perseverance and lots of problem solving skills 🐝

  • Writing limericks about the Queen

    Published 27/05/22

    This week we have been writing limericks about the Queen as part of our Jubilee celebrations.

    We started by exploring some limericks and practising performing and reciting them using expression and thinking about how to change our voice as we read. 

    Then we collected rhyming words and wrote our own limericks, followed by performing them to the rest of the class; just like real poets! We loved giggling at the funny limericks we wrote and we hope you enjoy a sample here.

  • Portraits of the Queen

    Published 27/05/22

    To celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, Amazon Class have been learning how to draw portraits using the correct proportions. We looked very carefully at pictures of the Queen and used our new skills to sketch these beautiful portraits. We then added watercolour and made royal frames to proudly frame our artwork.

    We welcome you to view our Queen Elizabeth gallery below!

  • Victorian Toys and Food

    Published 17/05/22

    Over the last couple of weeks, Amazon Class have been exploring aspects of a day in the life of a Victorian child in a hands on and creative way.

    We compared the different toys that Victorian children played with to the toys we play with today, followed by making some Victorian toys- marbles and peg dolls.

    Today we learnt about the diet of Victorian people and the different foods they ate. Nobody fancied the idea of eating fish head soup or gruel! We then read the story of ‘Daisy Saves the Day’ and worked as a team to follow a recipe from the story to make Victorian scones.

    We look forward to bringing these home tomorrow and hope that you enjoy them. Scones best served with butter and a little jam!

  • A Day in the Life of a Victorian School Child

    Published 17/05/22

    Amazon Class went back in time to the Victorian period and had the most fantastic, immersive experience at Sevington Victorian School.

    We enjoyed a whole day of Victorian school life, taking part in the different activities boys and girls would have experienced- as well as learning about some of the more unpleasant aspects of being a Victorian school child.

    The children were very relieved that the dunce hat and cane no longer play a part in school today!

    A fantastic way to bring history to life and inspire our writing next week.
