We have been very busy in Reception learning about Easter and today we made (and ate!) chocolate nests.
We are very much looking forward to our Easter egg hunt and Easter bonnet parade tomorrow!
We have been sharing lots of Kipper stories in the Nursery this half term. Can anyone remember the name of the author? We looked closely at the character and then created these fabulous pieces of work. Well done everyone! You have worked really hard all week
The children in Reception have loved reading the story Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson. We have been looking at rhyming words and have made lots of the animals from the story. We also learnt about symmetry and made our own symmetrical butterflies.
Year 3/1 have had a lovely afternoon looking at the fantastic displays as we moved around the museum (we even had time to look at a few skeletons in preparation for tomorrow’s science lesson).
Making our very own Stone Age pots using the ‘thumb’ pot method and then making coils to increase the size of the pot, was a real treat. Finally the children created wonderful Stone Age decorations to complete their piece of art. Well done.
In the Spring Term, we have been learning all about the Stone Age! As part of our topic, we have visited Hanley Pottery Museum where the children were able to look at real artefacts from the Stone Age!
We have created our very own Stone Age pots using clay and other natural materials! The children are all really excited to bring their pots home tomorrow and already have many ideas for how they intend to use them!
Thank you for a lovely morning Year Three!
Year 2 have been learning the art of weaving. The children created their own card loom and used different coloured strips of paper to weave their own masterpiece. Well done children. Creating the perfect pattern was tricky!
Y5 created these beautiful cards using watercolour pencils and are thrilled with the results. We would like to wish all our wonderful mums a lovely, relaxing Mother’s Day this weekend.
Year 5 have done a wonderful job of making their memory boxes. They look great and will hopefully help them to keep lots of lovely things in as memories. Children want to put in their boxes: tickets, cards, objects, photos, coins and items from when they were babies.
For our very first origami session the children listened brilliantly and carefully followed some tricky instructions to make some fantastic 3D whales! Well done everyone.
Year 5 are busy planning their Memory Boxes in art. This week they started to create a mood board, thinking about how they want their boxes to look using pictures, colours, materials and text. This Adidas box will be totally transformed by Caitlin over the next few weeks!
