Creative Learning in Action

Come fly with us.

Posted by in Flight

Here are some examples of our team plans. As you can see, each of the classes had their own perspective and focus, for example Bamburgh chose airplanes and gliders while Amble chose superheroes (specifically Supertato!!). The plans are developed with each curriculum area in mind along with the social and emotional development of our children. We put our plans into action and are now gathering feedback about the theme – look out for the summary which is coming soon.   Bamburgh Autumn Term 2018 Medium plan Termly Guidance Amble

Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane?

Posted by in Flight

No, it’s Batman and Robin! They came to our big planning meeting to teach us about flight and everyone got together to think about different aspects of flying. Our Deputy Head Teacher, Sally and our Admin Assistant, Lee did great jobs of embodying the role of a caped crusader. Plenty of laughs were had and we really got thinking about what we would like our children to learn. Each team has a specific subject that they would need to communicate to the whole group. Props were provided and all of…read more

Flying or falling?

Posted by in Flight

In the primary class, we continue with the kite’s flight.Today, taking advantage of the wind … we have gone outside the school to fly a great kite or at least we tried it! We have experienced the difference between flying and falling and the sensations that we perceive when it flies (we were very happy) and when the kite fell (we were not that much). We had so fun!! Maybe we’ll repeat it again…! Look at the photos and check yourselves!

How do birds fly?

Posted by in Flight

In the secondary we are working on the natural flight and we have seen a video and we have extracted the main ideas about how birds fly. We have begun developing the concept map, some of them have written on the computer the ideas, others have imitated the three phases of the flight (take off, fluttering and planning),  we have taken photos doing these movements and we have cut and pasted the information in the mural.

We can fly!!!

In the psychomotricity class we are looking for different elements to be able to vividly work the sensations that produce the flight. Through swings, oscillations and turning activities we are providing vestibular stimulation experiences. This week we did it with the vestibulador inside the room.

After working on the artifical flight, the secondary class have done a cooking workshop. Our goal was to make hot-air balloons. For this reason, we have cooked some muffins and decorated them like a hot-air balloons. Then we distributed them in different classes. It was a fun activity and the muffins were delicious!

The transports

Posted by in Flight

In primary school we continue working on the flight. Through the different transports we have learned the difference between flying and falling. First, we made the clouds with shaving foam on a blue background, we put sand and then we placed the different elements, depending on whether they were flying or not.

Where do mosquitoes bite?

In the speech therapy class, we keep working on flies and mosquitoes. Today we listened to the song of one of our favorite singers, Dámaris Gelabert, who has a song about mosquitoes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jVSaapPujY We had a mosquito that was flying in the class. We listened concentrated the song and when the song said one part of the body, the mosquito stopped and bit there.  

From the film to the experiment

Posted by in Flight

In the secondary class we are working on the different kinds of flight. In the artificial flight we have learned about planes and its differents parts. Now we are working on the hot-air ballon. We saw a film: “Around the world in 80 days” and then we talked about the different countries and the different transports that they used in the story. Finally we discovered that there is another artificial flight: the hot-air ballon. We decided to make it and made it fly!

Discovering kites!

Posted by in Flight

In the primary shared schooling class we love kites! For this reason we have gone to the library to find information about kites in books that we have and we looked for different kites on Internet with the Digital Screen Board. We have seen that they can fly very high, that each kite has different parts. There are many colors, different shapes and sizes. We have decided to choose the ones that we most liked, we have grouped and then we have cut them. Later in class we have classified…read more
