Class 3 presented the news on Thursday afternoon! They investigated the problems caused by tourism, both locally and in the polar regions. They then read amazing news stories about problems such as congestion, pollution and the destruction of wildlife habitats. Well done newsreaders – we certainly learned a lot!
Class 3 have been looking at how artists use colour and technique in different ways to represent landscapes and skyscapes.
We looked at the work of local artist Becky Bettesworth and her representation of landscapes using perspective.
We created stylised coloured sketches in the style of Bettesworth and practised our typography skills all in preparation for our future landscapes based upon The Frozen Kingdom.
More exciting artwork to follow!
Friday 9th October is World Mental Health Day and as a school, we would like to support the charity ‘Young Minds’ by coming to school on that day wearing yellow! During the day the children will take part in PSHE activities linked to mental health and well-being and learn some strategies for how to help themselves and others be mentally fit and healthy.
We kindly request that the children donate £1 to support this event. We look forward to seeing a sea of yellow!
At a time when it’s needed most, come together for #HelloYellow to support young people’s mental health on World Mental Health Day.
As part of our topic on childhood, Class 1 have been learning all about babies. They have been thinking about similarities and differences in what they could do when they were a baby and what they can do now. They have been learning the names for some of the parts of the human body and have labelled pictures of themselves as babies.
Class 2 have been learning about money and how to make totals with different coins.
A big well done to all of our stars of the week!
In Art, we have continued our Banksy theme to create black and white images contrasting with splashes of colour. Our inspiration came from our literacy theme of ‘Hope.’ We looked at the story of ‘Daphne and the Doughnuts’ and noticed lots of similes. We thought of our own similes to match our lovely illustrations.
Welcome back to the Autumn Term. It’s been so lovely having a full school again. The children have been super at adapting to the new routines to keep us all safe – well done to them all. Please follow the links below for the full Autumn letter and online home learning grids, if your child needs to access it due to illness or self-isolation.
