We thoroughly enjoyed our circus workshop. Some of the activities were easier than others!
Over the last few weeks the children have been busy designing and sewing their felt bags Threading a needle and tying a knot seemed to be the most difficult part.. They have really enjoyed this topic. Here are a few pictures of the finished bags.
We have enjoyed making the front covers of our topic books using scratch art.
World Book Day
This year the theme is 'Where's Wally'. Each class will decorate their classroom for a chosen country. Our theme is South Africa. If you have anything related to this country please send it in.
We have loved making our musical instruments. We are playing them in groups and then we will be sending them home!
Rain forest dances
We have been working on our rain forest dances all half-term. These are our motives at the end of the dances.
Final gym routines
We created routines in groups using the skills we had learnt over the half-term.
This term the children are enjoying our gymnastics sessions. This week they were improving their headstands and completing a balance.
Mrs Astley and Mrs Howell would like to say a big Thank You for all the lovely gifts we received this Christmas. We wish you all a Happy and relaxing Christmas and New Year!
The children had lots of fun making their Christmas hats ready to wear for their special Christmas lunch. Here are some pictures of them modelling their hats.
Having made the Canopic Jars it was time to paint them!
We have been learning about Canopic Jars in History and writing explanation texts about them in English. In Art the children designed their own version of a Canopic Jar and today they started to make them. Next...painting them!
Egyptian Wall Paintings
In Art the children have been learning about the Ancient Egyptian tomb paintings. They studied examples and then had a go at painting one of themselves. Here are our class paintings:
Our class treat will be on the afternoon of Tuesday 7th November in recognition of all the children's hard work and super behaviour. They can bring clothes to change into and snacks (no nuts). We will be watching a video or quiet drawing.
Science: Digestive System
In Science the children have been learning about the digestive system. They thought you would like to see their fantastic models on the digestive system. I think they are great and I saw some excellent team work.
