What We've Been Doing - Autumn Term

Friday 14th December

As part of our topic work we have created sculptures of mythical creatures using modroc. We carefully chose and mixed paint to create colours and added detail and texture to our sculptures.

Photos will be added shortly.

Monday 26th November

As part of our literacy development we visited the Learning Lounge at Toot Hill school. Ms Maris and Ms Jones introduced us to the illustrations from "Arthur and the Golden Rope" by Joe Todd Stanton. The children then worked in pairs supported by students from Toot Hill to write their own sentences to describe their illustration. The children then independently sequenced their work to tell an alternative story.

This week we have been learning about habitats. In art we have drawn our own mythical setting. We used a range of different textures and used graded pencils to create different tones.

On Friday we dressed up for Children in Need Day. We brought in cakes to sell and we enjoyed eating them in the afternoon! Thank you to everyone who sent in and bought cakes.

This week we have been learning about our new topic 'Mythical creatures'. We learnt what a myth is and had a go at describing the creatures we designed at home. We shared our holiday homework with a buddy. Thank you for helping your child complete this homework task.

This week some of us got to go and visit the new housing development to see our painted bricks. We had a great time and were spotted showing excellent behaviour!

Friday 5th October

This week in our topic lessons we have been pretending to be Samuel Pepys to imagine what it would've been like during the Great Fire of London. We looked at Samuel Pepys' diary extracts and then we wrote our own.

We have also created stunning silhouettes of the Great Fire of London. The children's art work is being displayed in the classroom - please come in at the end of the day if you would like to see it.

We had a lots of fun painting poppies on bricks for the new housing development in Bingham. The children are excited about being part of this big project.

Friday 14th September

Over the holidays we had a fantastic time researching "The Great Fire of London". We made models, wrote fact sheets, drew pictures, printed information and some of us even visited London to find out more about it! We had a great time sharing our homework with both our friends in Sycamore as well as Oak class.

A huge thank you to everyone who completed their topic homework. It was lovely to see so many different ways of children representing their research.
