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.
