Welcome to Briery Class!

Our teacher is Mrs Oseman and our

teaching assistant is Mrs Barry.

Dear parents and children,

Please find below, a range of activities for you to complete at home whilst we are closed.  I will be updating this page over the coming weeks with more ideas.

During this time, I have a new email address:  I would be grateful if you could all send me an email so that I can create a class contact group.  This means I will be able to alert you when I add materials and also will help us to stay in contact.  You can also send me photos of what you have been up to at home and also let me know of other activities you have found that I could share with the class.  I would like to add some of your home-learning photos to our class page as well to help us feel a little more connected.  Please let me know if you would rather I didn't publish them.

Whilst you are at home, make the most of your family time.  Stay safe and healthy and remember that I love you all lots and will miss you terribly.

Love Mrs O. x

Amazing Animals

This half term, we are learning all about animals from around the world.  We know there are seven continents in the world and each week, we have visited a different continent to explore the animals that live there.

Asian Elephants

Elephants are an important part of the Hindu Festival of Colour known as Holi. Elephants are decorated with brightly coloured paints and chalks.

We made our own elephants out of clay.  First, we rolled out the clay and cut out an elephant shape using a template. Next, we used a range of tools to create lots of interesting patterns. Finally, we painted our elephants brightly.

Exciting Animal Artefacts

Today, Mrs Wells came to visit us. She is an ecologist and brought us a range of interesting artefacts to look at and learn about. She brought us bones, nests, bodies and feathers. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to her and looking at all of the fantastic items she brought in.

Natural Collages

After our walk, we made collages using the natural objects we had collected whilst in the woods.

Our special trees

We chose a tree in our school grounds to become our special friend and then we used their leaves to find out what type of tree it was. We also measured our tree to find out how old it is. Using all of this information, we made an ebook in Book Creator on the iPads.
