This half term the whole school have taken part in the ‘Light of Hope’ project. The children had to create a tealight holder and decorate them with words of hope. The display looked fantastic last night!
In Reception our Science work has been based around the human body. The children have been learning the different parts of the body and then have explored the different senses of sight, hearing, taste, and smell.
The children created a great life size person to label.
Here are the children exploring the different senses.
We have been learning about Stone Age life and created our own settlement including; shelters, fire areas for cooking, fishing areas, boat making workers, cooking slabs and lots more. We made our own tools such as axes. It was good to be on a hill to keep watch for enemies!
Year 1 have been busy making planets out of clay. We first looked at the shape and then we focused on the colours of each planet. The children then picked a planet and used different techniques to make their own.
This week we went to the forest to explore how Cave paintings were created. We made our own paint brushes with sticks, feathers, moss and leaves. We also made different coloured paints from nature: charcoal, chalk, crushed leaves and mud. We used modern methods to recreate; Cueva de las Manos – The Cave of Hands (Argentina) . It is fascinating to think about how long ago some of these images were created and consider what they tell us about the Stone Age times.
