Literacy Labs

This week in Literacy Labs we have been making containers to transport our dragon. The children had art straws and lots of problems to solve. I was super impressed by the ideas that they planned and then transferred into their models!!

Well done guys 😊

Phonics

This week in phonics our sounds have been ure, air and oo (the short sound like in book or cook)

We found these quite tricky, especially ure. Something that might help is talking through some words where the spelling is the same for ure but it sounds different.

eg Pleasure, treasure, pure, cure, insure.

Can you think of any more?

Could you write them out and then highlight the sound?

Thanks for your continued support.

 

Kandinsky inspired art in Year 2

I am so proud of the Year 2 children for fully embracing the Kandinsky inspired art today. We listened to a range of music from 70’s rock, 90’s pop, musical classics to classical and instrumental.  The children then drew the movements they felt as the music played. We have begun to introduce watercolours to enhance the shapes we created and we can’t wait until next week to complete them!

Catapults

The children in Class 6 showed some fabulous teamwork today when they were making their catapults to capture a dragon 🐉 They had to work together to make their catapults, and to test them out-I look forward to reading all of your instructions that you will write tomorrow!!

Well done!

Teamwork makes the dream work!! 😊

Literacy Labs

This week we have started Literacy Labs in Year1. The children were fantastic at exploring and making dragons, we tried to make dragons that could fly!! The children worked together and solved problems to construct their flying dragons- We had so much fun testing them out! Well done Class 6!

Acrylic Poppies

 

I am incredibly proud of all of the Year 4 children today. They worked collaboratively to create a canvas per class filled with individual poppies in remembrance of those who died in the war. The children used acrylic inks to create their masterpieces.

Well done to you all! I’m blown away by the high standard of art work you have created.

The paintings will be displayed in the St Nicolas Parish Church for the week running up to Remembrance Sunday before returning to school to be displayed somewhere for all to see!
