Rosen class enjoyed breathing and stretching exercises whilst creating Arctic animal poses in our classroom. They all felt quite relaxed afterwards.
Exploring the Arctic Circle
Rosen class had fun looking at world maps in pairs to identify the countries in the Arctic Circle. Then they worked as a group to match the Arctic countiries to their flags.
Our Arctic WOW day got off to a freezing start! Rosen class discovered the playground temperature matched the days theme.
We love to read in Rosen.
Year 1 had a super day out at Middleton Railway. Whilst there the children learnt all about steam trains and the history of Middleton Railway (the oldest in the world!) The children had an exciting ride on a train, a walk in the woods to find remains of local mining, enjoyed an Autumn scavenger hunt and a guided tour of the museum.
Victorian Toy Day
As part of our Journey back in time topic, Rosen class took part in a Toy Day this week. They enjoyed talking about their own toys and comparing them to toys and games popular in Victorian times. They had lots of fun exploring playing with the game Pick up sticks, riding a hobby horse, trying to use a yoyo, juggling balls and wooden cup and ball and playing Tiddly Winks and Dominoes.
As scientists we enjoyed visiting the school garden to explore using our 5 senses.
