Year 4&5 are learning more intersting vocabulary for the basic colour words. The children made collages of each colour and then displayed them alongside new and more powerful vocabulary. Simple but effective!
Year 1 finished their last topic, The Great Fire of London, with a great fire on a local beach. It was a controlled burning and the children watched from a safe distance as they witnessed how quickly the fire spread from house to house. Luckily the houses were made using cardboard boxes and the children painted wooden beams on them to make them look authentic. What a brilliant end to a fun topic!
Year 2 have been learning the basics of how to use laptops. They learned how to switch one on, open some documents and save them before shutting the computer down properly.
Nursery Class made porridge so that Goldilocks would not need to take it from The Three Bears again! They followed a recipe and added warm milk to oats. The children then added either honey or chocolate spread to make it sweet. Most of the chldren liked it!
Nursery read Jack and and the Beanstalk and wanted to plant their own magic beans. The children looked at what plants need to be able to grow and will be watching them closely to see what changes.
Year 4&5 have been developing their art techniques and have investigated new ways to use oil pastels. The class learned how to smudge, rub and blend in order to create new shades and textures and then how to add precise details. They used their skills to create images of fruit which will soon be on display in the dining room.
