Thursday 26th September
Class 1 had great fun taking part in the Fitness test.
We had to run around the playground continuously for 3 minutes! Phew!
Our Place in the World
Look at our beautiful observational drawings of our school. We looked at our school then discussed which city it was in. The children learnt that our school is in Nottingham, Nottingham is in England, England is in the UK and the UK is in the World.
We then studied a photo of our school. We drew the school and windows. Then we printed the bricks and drew some bricks in between the windows. After that we coloured in the sky, the road and then the railings outside. It took us all half term. Wow they look good!
We have been learning about the story of Rama and Sita and Diwali. We worked in groups making Rangoli patterns. We showed great Team work and inclusion in sharing the space and resources with our group. It has made a stunning display in our classroom.
Our second piece of art work is our firework pictures. First we listened to the story about The Gunpowder Plot and why fireworks are used on November 5th. We then made our own tools either from straws or pipe cleaners to make a printer. We used it to print our exploding fireworks. Then we cut out flat shapes to design our own rockets. The Teddies made 3D rockets.
We have worked very hard on our Seasons art work. At first we needed to paint mix the blue for the sky and the green for the grass in different shades to reflect the Season. Then we added the trees and the detail on the trees, again to reflect the Season. This work took several weeks but as you see it was worth it. Aren't they fantastic!
PAIRED READING FOR CHILDREN IN NEED
Class 1 and 2 spent a lovely afternoon reading and enjoying books together. The children each brought in a teddy bear from home and it was lovely to see them talking about and sharing the fantastic books we have in school.
Our Christmas dinner
We had a lovely dinner with our friends and Teachers. We made lanterns for our tea lights to shine through to make our dining hall look very festive.
Christmas Jumper day
Friday 13th December
Look how great we all look in our Christmas jumpers!
We had a super day and raised a lot of money for the
Save The Children charity.
Tuesday 17th December
Look who came to visit us today!
It's Santa Claus!
He gave every child a present and we had great fun opening them.
We are very lucky.
Thank you Santa!
We put 4 rubber bands on to a frame and made a loom.
We then weaved strips of material in and out of the rubber bands. We think they look great!
You can see some of our weaving on Class 1's windows.
Take a look!
