Browne Newsletter Term 5 2018


Children have been extremely busy. They have been learning the importance of having a balanced diet. They created a pie chart using data, from a survey, where they asked, categorised and recorded what food types children had for their lunch.

They then designed and created a word wheel that will help them to make the correct choice when it comes to snacking.

Children have been rehearsing songs from the film ‘The Greatest Showman’ with the help of Mr Drake.

Children were inspired by Andy Warhol’s Pop Art style to create their fruit collages. He used the same repeated image in complimentary colours to make an impact.







Learning about rocks.

So, a rock is just a rock right? You look at them, play with them, and throw them across the water, if you’ve become an expert at that of course. Wrong! A rock is not just a rock, there are loads of different types of rocks and they’re formed in all sorts of ways.

Children learned some fascinating facts about rocks.

Children brought in their teddies and used them to investigate what happens to a shadow when you change the distance of the light source.

Inter House Cross Country

On Thursday the 18th of January children braved the cold weather and participated in this annual event, earning points for their house just by taking part. Well done to all the children! And thank you to Mrs Harrison and Mrs Brushett for organising this fabulous event.

Children had lots of fun this week while doing a Science investigation. They were given a sugar cube and some water and asked what they could investigate.

First problem solving activity of 2018!

Children used their creative minds to solve a murder mystery and had much fun discussing what character the rubbish belonged to!

Children carried out an investigation to see if your height had any affect on how far you can jump. Our results were all very different.

High Excitement!

Children went to the woods to collect sticks to make dream catchers. While they were there, it began to snow! Children, although cold, enjoyed the first snow fall of this winter.

As part of our healthy living week children designed and made a very healthy pizza. Children enjoyed the whole experience.

Browne Class busy creating portraits in the style of Andy Warhol.













On Tuesday 7th November 2017 Browne Class visited Lullingstone Country Park to participate in some outdoor learning activities. The children wrote poems, built habitats for a given woodlands creature and then created advertisements to sell that habitat.  They then drank hot chocolate by the camp fire.  We all had an amazing time.  HUGE thanks to the parents for sorting travel to the park and the parents who stayed with us for the morning.

Canopic Jars

The ancient Egyptians had a strong religious belief that when a person died they would return to an ‘afterlife’ that was almost the same as the life they had when they were alive.  In their belief, the body needed to be preserved so that the person could return. This is why the Egyptians created mummies. The process required that not only the outside of the person’s body be mummified, but also all of the internal organs. Canopic jars were created to contain all of the organs, so that upon entering the afterlife, the person would be complete.

Children worked with Mrs Nicholson to make their own Canopic Jars!

The Force of Magnetic Attraction

As part of their science investigation, children observed how magnets attracted or repelled each other and attracted some materials and not others by designing, making and playing a magnetic game.

Once again Browne Class had the chance to meet with their buddy class.  They retold the story of ‘Into the Forest’ by Anthony Browne using story maps they produced in class.

The Ukulele.

Children in Browne are very lucky to have the opportunity to learn how to play the ukulele.

Mr Drake teaches the class on a Friday afternoon. The idea is for the children to practise singing and play lots of tunes.

The ukulele is one of the easiest instruments to learn, and quickly rewarding.

The most important thing for the children to remember is to have lots of fun!
