We had a very energetic time at the Squash Roadshow! We learnt how to control the ball and balance it on a racket. If you would like to learn more squash skills you can join our Squash Club. Ask at the office for details. Have a look at our photos:
The children all arrived back happily after the holidays and I think they have all been busy growing in the sunshine! Everyone looked very tall and grown up.
As always we have been learning lots of exciting things. Today have been writing stories about an adventure with The Gruffalo! Can you remember some adjectives you used to describe him? How about: powerful, ferocious, greedy, dangerous, selfish or venomous? Maybe you could write another story at home?
Thank you to all of you who came to our 'Maths is Fun' games afternoon. We all loved it and hope the grown ups did too? Remember to complete some of the activities in your maths pack!
Mr Bark came to visit us and told us all about keeping safe as a London Underground worker. We found out lots of facts about the underground system. How many facts can you remember?
We had a wonderful time on World Book Day. We thoroughly enjoyed guessing which characters each other had come dressed up as! What is YOUR favourite story? We read as many stories as we could and then Year 6 came to visit. We shared books and felt very grown up reading with the older children. Have a look at the photographs:
We used tissue paper and PVA glue to make these flame sculptures. We thought about warm, fiery colours. We had great fun and thought carefully about how to use the hottest colours in the middle of the flame. Now we have to wait for our sculptures to dry out and set. Then we can apply the finishing coat and display them.
We are continuing our history lessons learning about The Great Fire of London. How many facts can you remember children?
We have been painting in the style of Anthony Frost. How has he used his paint brush? Do the shapes remind you of anything?
We were inspired by the work of Anthony Frost and we used his techniques to paint flickering flames illuminating the London sky. Then we carefully cut out silhouettes of buildings. Our pictures represented The Great Fire of London in 1666. Have a look at our work. We feel very proud!
Happy New Year to you all! We have only been back just over a week but we have managed to fit in lots of creative art work already! Have a look at our drawings and paintings of flames. They remind us of the Great Fire of London.
