Year 1 are learning about the different attributes within seasons. Do you like our seasons display? We used different materials to create what a tree would look like in the 4 different seasons. Can you guess what tree goes with what seasons?
In Nursery the children learnt about Remembrance Sunday and why poppies are used in remembrance. Then they made some poppy pictures using potato printing, a skill they learnt a few weeks ago.
Nursery this week have been finding out all about Diwali. They learnt the story of Rama and Sita, drew Rangoli patterns on the pavement outside the office to welcome visitors and to wish everyone a Happy Diwali, made Diva lamps and decorated hand templates in Mehndi.
We have been busy under the sea!
In art, Year 1 have begun to learn about creating texture within a piece of work. We layered poster paints and used cling film to create under water style pictures.
All the new children settled quickly this morning in nursery and were soon busy learning and exploring their new environments both inside and outside. We’re looking forward to doing it all again tomorrow!
In Nursery this morning the Year 6 pupils led a technology session with the children. There was a range of activities, from Beebots to accessing the internet safely. Thank you Year 6 – the nursery children were fully engaged and told us later how much they enjoyed it.
Our current news display
Year 5’s ideas about how they can help
Year 6’s ideas about how they can help
During this summer term in the library, Years 5 and 6 have been reading current newspapers and reflecting on what they are reading, specifically how they feel about current news. These articles have been put up on a display, along with their writing about their reactions. The articles they felt strongly towards cover news from all over the world but some common themes developed, such as climate change, pollution, recycling, and natural disasters.
In our last week on this project, we researched and thought about ways we could help. The two white board images show what each class thought about and their ideas about helping or improving these issues.
Well done to everyone in Year 5 and 6 for their hard work on this, their thoughtful ideas, and their commitments to improving global concerns.
