Using lots of tasty treats, Snow Leopards created and learnt about the different layers which make up the soil we walk around on.

To kick start the festive season, all the children at Oatlands decorated their own bauble to hang proudly on their Christmas trees at home.

Antibullying VR Workshop 2
The children enjoyed using the Virtual Reality headsets today as part of an anti-bullying workshop. They listened well and thought carefully about the reasons behind unkind behaviour and what we can do to prevent it from happening. 

Children In Need - Pyjama Day

Thank you to all the children who came in their pyjamas and donated to Children in Need. 

We even did a work-out with Jo Wicks and Pudsey in our pyjamas.

Special Mention Winners for Autumn Term 1

Well done boys for a fantastic start to the year! 

The Snow Leopards have been learning about the way they made clothes during the Anglo-Saxon times. They made their own homemade looms to practise weaving. A lot of patience and concentration was needed to create some lovely patterns. 
Over the past few days, the children have been working together to create a movie trailer for the story of The Iron Man. Here are some of the finished products!

The children started by exploring different games involving magnets to formulate their own scientific questions. 

They then set up their own investigations: some tested the strength of magnets in water, some looked at the strength of a magnet through different materials and one group looked at the difference between different sized magnets. 

Well done Snow Leopards for generating and answering your own scientific questions!

Crime and Punishment

The children looked at how much harsher the punishments were back in the Anglo-Saxons times. It was hoped these punishments would be a deterrent as they didn't have police around then to keep people safe. You can see by the expression on the Snow Leopards' faces that these punishments were torture!

The Snow Leopards have had a fantastic start to the term!

We have started work on our new class book, The Iron Man, we have tested our understanding of Place Value in maths, we have begun to piece together the timeline of events during the Anglo-Saxon period and looked at Hindu Worship known as Puja. A very busy week. Keep up the hard work Snow Leopards.
