What a fantastic Alice themed week we’ve been having this week!
Children all looked fantastic dressed as characters from the story yesterday and really enjoyed our visit to ‘The Rabbit Hole’.
We have also made our own eat me fruit kebabs, Queen of Hearts jam tarts and top hat biscuits.
This morning we have made personalised clay playing cards with Belinda the artist.
I can’t wait to see what the rest of the week brings!
This half term Year 2 have read a version of the classic ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Lots of our learning will focus on the story and we started by taking inspiration from the Mad Hatter and made our own hats. As you can see children are very pleased with their creations.
Year 3 have started their new Food for Thought topic by reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Today we have created artwork using what we’ve learned about the characters and we’ve even invented our own chocolate bar! (Did you know that Willy Wonka invented over 200 different bars of chocolate?). Because Charlie only eats potatoes and cabbage, lots of children have invented chocolate that contains fruit so that he is getting some vitamins and minerals. My favourite bar was one that had a different fruity centre in every square of chocolate. Yum!
It was lovely welcoming the children in to school this morning all refreshed from their Easter break and excited for the new term.
Our topic this half term is growing. We will be looking very closely at the life cycle of a caterpillar and hopefully watching the real thing!
We shared the story ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle following the story the children painted some fantastic caterpillars trying very hard to continue a repeating pattern. Well done everyone we think your pictures are amazing!
This week in the Nursery we have shared The Easter Story. Following the story we have created some fantastic works of art, chickens, rabbits and the chocolate nests were very popular.
We would like to wish all of our families a very happy Easter, thank you for your continued support.
We hope you all have a lovely well earned break
Year One have had a fantastic day with artist Belinda, creating super hero emblems. We designed them, coloured them, rolled with paint then pressed into the final print. Fantastic work with amazing results, we even had blue arms and red noses! Thank you so much Belinda for all your wonderful ideas and time x
