Friday was a very special day for our school and our class. See ‘Replies’ for comments from each of our class on their memories of the day.
Thank you to our lovely parents for showing your suppport and coming along this afternoon. We hope you enjoyed the chance to see what we’ve been up to over the last term. The children were incredibly proud to be able to show you all their brilliant work and fun ways of learning.
A popular feature of our open afternoon. Thank you parents for being such good sports and allowing yourselves to be ‘selfied’ for our blog.
Some seriously talented artists in action. We used grids, preparatory sketches and a study of Impressionism to help us create our local seascape paintings.
Canon Richard visited year 3 on Thursday 19th May. We wanted him to help us understand the 4 actions of the Eucharistic Prayer: taking, blessing, breaking and sharing. Afterwards we had some squash and lemon drizzle cake in the company of our friends in year 3.
We had a BRILLIANT time this afternoon causing eruptions on the school field. Another big, big well done to all of you. Each and every volcano was a masterpiece. They were all so different, creative and detailed. Unfortunately, our photographer forgot to include the actual volcano in one or two of these pictures… but they were all fantastic
Just a reminder, that our volcano afternoon is this Monday (22nd May), so all volcanoes need to be brought in on the day, ready for eruption. Let’s hope for fine weather or our classroom could be getting very messy!
And in our final week of this very short term we will be having an art focus. We are going to be looking at a famous artist and creating a local seascape in the style of their painting. Can we ask, if your child has not previously brought in an old art shirt, could you make sure they have one by Wednesday of next week.
Many thanks and looking forward to a very creative week ahead.
Miss Thomas and Mrs Wright
Learning how to use our blog. 👍😊
This week we had a go at making a volcanic eruption using kitchen ingredients. I used a very hastily made play doh model for the volcano, but the children hopefully got the general idea! I’ve now set them the task of creating their own model volcano at home, to be brought into school on the 22nd May. We’ve been learning lots about the volcanic process and the structure of these natural earth forms, so hopefully they will produce something a bit less ‘blob-like’ than mine! A letter with details and hints went home on Monday, but if there are any questions, please ask me.
Have lots of fun making your volcanoes – really looking forward to seeing them.
