World Book Day

The highlight of our first week back after half term has to be our World Book Day celebrations on Thursday. On the day, Year 1/2 enjoyed a book bonanza quiz and found out how to make a book fortune teller. Also during the week, Year R have been out and about looking for signs of Spring, Year 3/4 have created pieces of Ugandan Art and Year 5/6 have been exploring the idea of 'What would Jesus do?'.

Year R - Signs of Spring

Year R have been out and about in the school grounds this week hunting for signs of spring. The children have enjoyed learning about how plants change during spring time and learning to name and describe different spring flowers. We hope you enjoy looking at the artwork they were inspired to create.

Year 3/4 - Studying Ugandan Art

As part of our new topic covering different aspects of the continent of Africa, year 3/4 have started reading ‘The Butterfly Lion’ by Michael Morpurgo; begun learning how to write an informative letter (we plan to write letters to our twin school in Uganda); been learning and creating dances to music as well as studying Ugandan ceramic art. 

During art lessons, children have studied the colours, shapes, textures and functions of Ugandan art.  Everyone practiced their patterns and colour choices before painting their design onto a plate.  Choosing the earthy colours and patterns was an enjoyable experience and made us consider carefully the locality that this style of art comes from.  We hope you enjoy looking at our creations.

Year 5/6 - What would Jesus do?

In the last week of term the children explored the idea of ‘What Would Jesus Do?” in RE and how this idea applies to their lives. The children made Bible stands, thinking about what makes a good foundation. They then produced posters explaining how they can make a small difference to the world and people around them. In writing, the children used laptops to publish their newspaper reports, thinking about effective layouts of text and pictures. In mathematics the Year 5 class began exploring decimals and percentages while the Year 5/6 explored geometry by looking at translation and reflection.
