Year 5 have had a special lesson today from a visiting artist, David. They first learned all about his work as part of finding out about creative careers. Then he showed them how to create pictures using GPS on phones! Great teamwork and idea – the children loved it. Thank you to David.

Our Year 4 classes are having a great time this morning listening to Naomi, an artist and sculptor.

She has shared with the children how she became inspired to become an artist and also some of her recent pieces of work.

Following the talk, Year 4 have had lots of fun making different piece of work from clay. They’ve created lots of work, from coil pots to sculptures of dogs.

Great work Year 4!

Our Alice Adventures Continue

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!

Stage one of construction is underway and our Maya God Statues are beginning to take shape. It’s a messy job but we seem to be enjoying it. We will keep you posted on our progress this week.

Mad Hatter Inspired Hats

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!

Nursery’s Very Hungry Caterpillars

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!
