Wrens and Robins are enjoying their core text ‘The Enormous Turnip’ and have been doing some really beautiful paintings using the illustrations from the book to help. Just look at the detail and colour! They also explored pattern using loose parts and engaged in some beautiful discussion around spirals reminding them of snails. Fabulous!
Larks worked hard in PE this week and impressed Mr Dougall with their gymnastics skills, focusing their coordination and timings when working in pairs. Some lovely cross curricular links to this week in art, RE, Science and phonics. Busy bees!
Swifts enjoyed their visit to Bowes on Friday and they all got to make their very own stone age pot and handle some intriguing stone age artefacts. Hopefully you heard all about it when they got home. They’ve also worked hard in their PE this week working on movement and coordination… some of the moves were quite a challenge but they showed real perseverance to ensure they succeeded in their challenges. Look at the concentration on Freddie’s face… fantastic!
This week Father Thomas visited Owls to talk to us about his calling to priesthood.
The children have also been working hard alongside GSK and our Science Ambassador/Governor to achieve a Children Challenging Industry Award. They produced some fabulous presentations using I-movie for each science enquiry completed. Super work Owls!
To mark Mental Health Day we considered the causes and consequences of positive mental health and negative mental health and created some exceptional art work.
