Wrens and Robins have enjoyed printing, pouring and mixing this week. Erin said that she was an artist like her mammy and then the children had a wonderful conversation with Mrs T to find they were all artists! How wonderful. Nursery went on their second local adventure along to Bowes Museum grounds. What little explorers they all are!
Larks have worked well this week in English and maths- matching numerals to words and pictures and also capital letters to lower case letters. They were also busy in science exploring properties of materials… they will be using their science knowledge to help the 3 pigs build a new roof! I think they will know exactly what materials to use to make a string, waterproof roog!
Swifts have been learning their Roman Numerals in maths this week and placing them on their outdoor number lines. They worked well as a team and explored making numerals with different materials too. They enjoyed some cave painting and printing too, linking to their Stone Age topic, using sticks, handprints and finger painting to make their creative pieces of work.
I have seen the most beautiful display of work in Owls class this week linking their Re to literacy, art, music, design technology and PSHE. Kitty and Jessica even delivered a pompom sheep for my office too. It stands proudly on my windowsill. As scientists, they have also made toothpaste and were able to work in their groups with specific roles to ensure the job was carried out efficiently. They came running out of their classroom onto the yard full of excitement and told me all about it. Super scientists- well done!
