A Taste of our Learning
On the last day of the Spring term, the children enjoyed painting their clay monkeys. I'm sure that you agree that they look spectacular. We will keep them on display in class for a while before they come home to take up permanent residence with their owners.
This week, the children began to make their clay monkeys as part of our Central and South American Art topic.
They have also been practising Play Leading skills as we hope that they they will soon be able to apply for the training course.
In our Dance topic South American Carnival the children we being fag wavers, dancing to the samba drum beat at the world's largest party- Rio's Mardi Gras.
Reviewing our class charter and e-safety agreement
Last week of Autumn term!
Despite last minute changes of plans due to the weather and Covid restrictions, the children still enjoyed a fabulous party day and Christmas Jumper Day! We played games, ate s'mores and sang songs outside, watched the spectacular Dick Whittington pantomime streamed from the Kings Theatre Portsmouth, pulled crackers with our Christmas lunch as well squeezing in a Christmas film.
World Faith and Philosophy and our natural handmade Christmas tree.
Rev. Ball joined us on Thursday and I was impressed by the children's recall of their learning and by their sensible questions.
Computing and Christmas
Music and DT
The children had an amazing time making their gingerbread. They learned some very tricky skills, such as: weighing and measuring; rubbing in; rolling out; cutting out as well as assembling and decorating.
They all looked amazing and, I hear, were very tasty too.
