Autumn Term 2019
Satellite class have had a brilliant start to the year, getting to know each other and working hard on lots of exciting topics! We have been focusing on our theme of patterns throughout our learning this term. In cooking we have designed, made and evaluated lots of different patterned biscuits and cakes. We have looked at crystals and their patterns in Science and all had a go at making our own! We loved watching the crystals form and finding new ways to make them throughout the term. We even had the chance to go on a brilliant trip to Marwell Zoo to spot all the different animal patterns!
Our favourite topic was definitely our design technology mini project where we used all of the different patterns we had looked at through the term to design and make our own Joseph's Coat based on "Joseph and the technicolour dreamcoat"! We had to work hard as a team to choose our favourite parts of each others design to make the final, colourful coat... and we think it looks great!
In Numeracy we have been working hard on our addition and multiplication. We have enjoyed finding new ways to practice these skills, from making array cities to playing multiplication bingo! In the second half of the term we have been working on our weighing skills, finding lots of different objects to weigh on both digital and balance scales.
In Literacy we have been exploring traditional tales and their alternative versions, thinking about what may happen in the alternative versions and looking at the differences and similarities. We all had the chance to role play as some of our favourite characters and act the story out with our friends! We also had the chance to write letters to our Headteacher asking for more time on the astroturf at playtime. As a result we had a letter back and all met with our Deputy Head to discuss our playtimes and managed to negotiate an extra day on the astroturf - Well done Satellite!
Summer Term 2019
Satellite class have been looking at electricity in Science. We have discussed how to be safe with electricity and what needs electricity to work. We have also looked at how electricity powers things and had a go at making our own circuits to light a light bulb. We have also had a look at how static electricity works and did lots of fun experiments.
Our topics for history and geography this term was transport through time and travel. We were lucky enough to visit Milestones Museum which resembled an old town and we were able to see how someone might have lived in a different time. We also spotted lots of different modes of transport from the past and were fotunate enough to go on an old bus.
Summer Term 2017
Satellite Class can’t believe we already have to leave our lovely classrooms on the Grange Infant School Site. We have had a fantastic two terms and will really miss the grounds. The fruit trees have an abundance of fruit and we have also grown plants to attract insects and birds which will be going home.
The runner beans plants we have grown are really tall. We have all taken great care to ensure they are supported by the fence and are watered regularly. It is a shame that everything is usually ready to harvest when we are still on our summer holidays!
Everyone in Satellite Class hope you all have a lovely holiday and we look forward to working hard next term!
Satellite class can’t believe they have been in their new classrooms for a term. Everyone really enjoys our outside area to play hide and seek. Some class from the main site have visited and are very impressed by our facilities.
To support our humanities topic - Physical Geography; Rivers, coasts, water cycle, natural resource and oceans we visited North Warnborough, near Odiham. We explored the area which included a walk down the canal where we saw a number of ducks swimming, paddled in the ford and the streams that flow down to meet the river, and picnicked in the castle ruins. We were very lucky with the weather, but it was a good job we all wore wellingtons, otherwise we would have got very wet feet!
We hope everyone enjoys the Easter break and look forward to the Summer Term.
Autumn Term 2016
After Christmas Satellite Class will be moving to their new classroom based at Farnborough Grange Nursery and Infant School. We recently visited the site to see how the contractors are progressing.
School have bought us a range of new equipment and educational toys, which we will enjoy working with in the future.
