Year R - The Everywhere Bear
Year R have been learning about the Julia Donaldson book, ‘The Everywhere Bear’. In this story, The Everywhere Bear has a wonderful time with the children in Class One, but one day he gets more than he bargained for when he falls unnoticed from a backpack and embarks on his own big adventure. The children enjoyed making their own bears using their sewing skills and creating their own adventure lands for the bear using the wooden blocks. Other highlights of the week include retelling stories in the castle and going on a Spring Walk.
Year 1/2 - Celebrating World Book Day
Year 1/2 had a fantastic day celebrating World Book Day. We enjoyed sharing our favourite stories together, writing book reviews to encourage our friends to read our favourite books and designed a reading den to make at school or home. We even had a fashion show to celebrate our wonderful costumes and listened to our favourite storyteller (Mrs Poulter) read Emilie’s story. Check out our brilliant costumes, aren’t they fantastic?
Year 3/4 - Holbien the Younger
This week, Year 3/4 have been studying the artistic work of Hans Holbien the Younger. He is most famous for his portraits of Tudor kings and queens. We looked closely at his style and tried to replicate it in our own way using oil pastels. He would sketch outlines first onto dark backgrounds before painting his colours over the top. He tried to be as naturalistic as possible – as did we. We hope you like our efforts.
Year 5/6 - Taxonomy
The children have been learning taxonomy in science, learning how to classify organisms into classes. They looked at the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates before looking more closely at the different classes of vertebrates: mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians.
