Arctic Landscapes
21 October 2020

We completed our amazing Arctic landscapes by adding polar animals.

We looked at proportion and composition to help us make choices as to where to place the animals. Our larger animals were placed in the foreground and the smaller ones in the background. Our medium sized animals were placed in the mid ground.

We then evaluated our work and talked about the similarities in style to the artwork of Becky Bettesworth.

What stunning landscapes!

Talking Mental Health with 'Heads Up'
20 October 2020

Classes 2 & 3 took part in a Mental Health workshop today that was run by Paula from the charity ‘Heads Up’.  The children identified many different emotions and thought carefully about how these emotions can make their body feel.  The children then revisited the different things that they can do to keep their minds and body healthy.  The children also had an interesting discussion about the difference between mental health and illness.  Paula was so impressed with how knowledgeable the children already were about these issues and of their suggestions for keeping calm and relaxed.

A Morning in Nursery
19 October 2020

The children in Nursery have had a busy, productive morning.

They have produced some lovely handwriting, listened to the story of Elmer and made colourful Elmer collages.

We also listened to the story of Harold the Hedgehog who was worried that he was not like everybody else. We talked about how special and unique we all are.

We made little hedgehogs from modelling clay – Don’t they look fantastic?

Stone Age Arrowheads
19 October 2020

Class Two have been learning about the Stone Age and how to weave using the same methods Stone Aged people used thousands of years ago.

We looked at some Stone Age arrowheads. They used to make arrowheads from flint, as it was strong and easy to shape. They used the arrows as weapons and tools and for hunting animals for food.
