Whole School Art Project

This was such a great opportunity for us in our class to learn about colour, and colour mixing, particularly as it’s our topic this half term. The children produced fantastic pieces of art, which were then used by the older school to create flags. A wonderful effort was made by everyone.

Monday’s trip to Rosemoor…

I couldn’t resist putting some pictures up of this week’s trip to Rosemoor. We may have more to follow, but here’s some to wet the appetite! We enjoyed doing a ‘Colours of the Rainbow’ session in the morning and a woodland walk in the afternoon. Fun was had by all!

Introducing a very bossy cat indeed!

I couldn’t resist uploading this picture from our Geography lesson, where Mrs Zeal took on the persona of a very bossy cat, (see our book of the week Oi Frog!) and gave instructions for the children to follow, around the classroom. We then made maps of our routes. Fantastic fun!

We’ve been on a shape hunt around the school, made firework pictures, drawn our our own shapes and made them using different resources. This week 2D, next week the World!

Science – Marvellous Materials

This week we’ve been exploring different materials, and thinking about what might be suitable to fix Miss B’s Cinderella Umbrella! We’ve looked at all sorts, tin foil, ribbon, card, plasters, oil cloth and discussed how we can test it. Let’s hope next week we can put a smile on Miss B’s face, and keep her dry in the rain.
