Coastline Knowledge Organiser


We made some delicious Eton Mess. πŸ“

In Design Technology we have been putting our skills to the test. Today we made some scrumptious Eton Mess. We had to slice strawberries, peel and slice bananas, crush meringue and stir and mix yogurt and sugar together. We had to follow a recipe in the recipe books we made last week. After we made them, we got to taste our wonderful creations. We had to evaluate our work and give stars out of 5 for presentation and taste. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In maths, we have been learning all about fractions. We started by learning about finding half of objects. 

We have been learning how to ride our bikes safely. 

Holy Week Wreaths

In RE, we created wreaths to represent the story of Holy Week. We looked at the highs and lows Jesus would have felt.

Trying root vegetables in DT.

In Design Technology, we have have been looking at why we cook our food. Our first task was to sort different foods that could be eaten raw or had to be cooked. We then got a chance to peel some root vegetables, that took some muscle, especially the swede. After we came back from swimming, we tried all of the vegetables. Some of us loved them, the rest of us weren’t so sure…

African Dancing

In PE we have been learning different styles of dance. This week we went to Africa. We learnt different movement and patterns.

We were experimenting primary and secondary colours. We used different materials with different textures to print.

We used so many different materials to print in our sketchbooks. We used bubble wrap, polystyrene, scrunched up newspaper and some ridged cardboard. Did you know if you mix red and yellow it makes orange? How cool!

We have been learning so much with Charlotte. She has been teaching us all about notation. We have been learning about the notes and what they are worth. We listened and appraised some music, played a game which included rhythm and pitch and even started a new song. Phewww! We did work hard. 

Converting mm to cm in maths.

In maths, Miss Linton has been teaching us all about length. Today we looked at converting mm to cm. We had a chance to measure objects around our room and convert them. Did you know 1cm=10mm? 

Miss Linton has been teaching us all about different tools we use in cooking. We had to pick the best tool for the task. We grated cheese, peeled potatoes, buttered bread, sliced cucumber and measured tablespoons and teaspoons. We had so much fun and learnt new skills. We made cheesy mash and smoothies so we didn’t waste food. Yum yum! 

We have been looking at the story of The Last Supper. We thought about how Jesus and his apostles would have been feeling that night. We acted out the story using bread and wine. (Well, ribena)

Leaflets on how to look after a dragon.

In Literacy we have been reading a book called ‘The Dragon Machine’ and ‘The Dragon sitter’ We created leaflets using commands and imperative verbs.

World Book Day! Can you guess who we all are? πŸ“š

Oh My! A real dragon came into our classroom and dropped off a dragon egg. We even caught all the action on CCTV. πŸ‰

Did you know a big blue whale can live 70-80 years? 
Wow! In Literacy, we have been creating double page spreads and leaflets. We can’t wait to show you our finished products. 

We have been learning new skills in PE.

Mr Green has been teaching us how to perform like a gymnast. We have been learning different skills such as balancing and jumping.

As a treat, we made melted snowman biscuits. We had to be super careful with the icing! But, they were SO yummy!

We played pass the parcel, musical chairs, musical statues and musical bumps. We had so much fun! 

Pantomime at the Brindley Theatre

We have been creating fire pictures in art.

In art, we used a variety of equipment to create fire. We used coloured pencils, felt tip pens, wax crayons, oil pastels and water coloured paint. We had to listen carefully to our teacher who taught us how to use them correctly. 

We have been writing reports about owls.

In literacy, we have been learning all about owls. We have created our own non-chronological reports. We were really focusing on using commas in a list, adverbs and co-ordination in our pieces of writing. 

Breast cancer awareness!

Our school have been raising awareness of breast cancer. We all wore pink and brought in money for charity, a charity close to our hearts.

We have been learning about the UK in geography!

We know all about the UK and it's capital cities. We used play dough to help us understand the shape of the countries. 

Black History Month- Marcus Rashford

October is Black History Month. We have been looking at Marcus Rashford MBE and how inspirational he is to us all. Did you know he helped school children eating during COVID-19? He also set up a charity called FareShare and raised an enormous £20 million. Wow! 

We have been learning about Skeltons in science

We’ve had a great time in science. We have been learning all about the different types of skeletons. We had to use marshmallows to make a figure. We soon realised that we needed cocktail sticks to help give our marshmallow figures more shape and stability.  Just like our bones in our body!

We are history detectives!

In history we have been learning about the Great Fire of London. We had to be super detectives and look at sources of evidence to work out what happened. We had so much fun working together using our magnifying glasses.

We have been learning about Place Value in Maths.

In maths we have been learning about place value. We had to order our numbers from smallest to biggest. We had lots of fun working together in groups to work out different problems using our problem solving and reasoning skills. 

We have had the best first few days back after our summer holidays. We have been so lucky that Cheshire Falconry came into school and taught us all about owls. We learnt so much! The owls were flying around our school hall and we even got to hold or stroke them.
