We started the morning by admiring the children’s great animal outfits.
We then enjoyed a range of craft activities; making Dear Zoo Biscuits, Making Animal Handprints, and Painting using watercolours.
This afternoon we have enjoyed eating our biscuits and enjoying lots of animal play!
The children enjoyed a great day!
Year 5 have been studying the impressionist painter Claude Monet.
We have looked at his use of brush strokes, the choice of colours and the way the same scenes change throughout the seasons.
Our skills started inside the class, creating our own colour palettes and developing brush strokes similar to Monet.
Taking our palettes and sketch pads outside it was time paint the wonderful views around our school.
After lots of concentration and hard work it was time to show off our impressionism art. What do you think Claude Monet would think?
Over three half days Year 5 had the opportunity to visit the amazing water sports and outdoor centre at Astbury Mere.
Day 1 – The children got the chance to paddle-board, kayak and canoe onto the lake, each activity requiring a particular challenge. We even had a few visitors who wanted to explore, they were a little quackers.
Day 2 – Year 5 were given the opportunity to build their own raft which would then be cast onto the lake. With a little help from one another all the class were able to set sail, however, not all were able to stay aboard.
Day 3 – Leaving their sea legs behind the children explored the world of ‘bush-craft’. Orienteering and fire building were today’s missions, as well as a cheeky toasted marshmallow.
For our last day at Astbury Mere, Year 6 took part in bushcraft and orienteering activities. The children collected wood to make a fire, learnt how to use a flint and then toasted marshmallows. They also completed an orienteering course around the mere. In both groups the girls won!!!
Yesterday the children could come into school in the colours red, white and blue to support the England team.
In our PE lesson we then concentrated on the skills you need to play a game of football. We worked on our dribbling skills, shooting skills and our passing skills.
Year 1 have worked very hard this year. We have created a celebration display to look at all our work throughout the year. Well done on working so hard and I am very proud of you all!
Using our story of Dear Zoo we have been thinking about where different animals live and what the different habitats are like. When we went to the woods this week in our ‘Muddy Monday’ session the children were given an animal and they had to make it a home. The children thought about what the different animals like and would need.
A celebration display to give you an insight into our learning this year and show you some of our celebrations!
The children have done so well in this difficult year – we are so proud of you all!
This half term – Nursery and Reception
Year 5 and 6 have worked so hard this year. Our display to celebrate what they have achieved shows how amazing they have been. Well done Year 5 and 6 – we are so proud of you!
