Today the children have spent their day focusing on different art skills and techniques. They found out information about the artist Van Gogh and his painting, Sunflowers and then used their new learnt skills to produce their own version of the famous painting.
Don’t forget to keep reading during the school holiday. For an extra reading challenge, take on this year’s Wild World Heroes challenge in connection with Hertfordshire libraries. We would love to see who has completed the challenge and hear about your favourite books when we return to school in September!
Year 4 spent their Monday afternoon putting on a brass performance! They were one of the first groups of children to participate in ‘Proms in the playground’. They really got to show off everything they have been learning throughout their brass time in year 4.
Year 2 have enjoyed competing in lots of different racing events this afternoon. They all supported and congratulated each other and cheered on children from other year groups. All children were proud to take part and tried their very best.
Year 6 have had an incredible DT day today, cooking and baking. The children spent some time before half term planning their recipes in groups. They were given the task of creating a 3 course meal to include and a starter using red bell peppers, mains using salmon and desserts using pineapple. We had a range of dishes from salmon and cucumber sushi, to pineapple and coconut cupcakes, honey glazed salmon to pineapple pancakes.
Before half term, Year 3 had a memorable experience in the world of Ancient Egypt. After creating many different artefacts, the children had an afternoon feast full of betrayal, music, dance, drama and food.
Today, Year 6 have had their third DT day! They created their own playground structures using their footprint plans. They were given a design criteria including a structure that moves, a structure that children can hide in and a structure that children would need to climb. Year 6 worked in teams to create their structures which involved children using a range of materials. Once the appropriate materials had been decided the children had to plan how they would join and attach the materials together.
