As part of Black History Month, 5/6H and 6B have looked at the artwork of Adia Millett. We analysed her artwork in paint, textiles and wood. We then created our own versions of her work. The results have been lovely.
5/6H really enjoyed their time willow weaving this week. We hope we can develop these skills further in the future!
This week we explored creating tone by using chalk pastels. We practised in our sketchbooks and then applied our skills to create a rainforest leaf. This is our learning so far.
Exploring outdoors can be fun.
This week we have looked at artist Alma Woodsey Thomas and recreated our own pattern artwork . The children really enjoyed this work and created some lovely outcomes .
This week in 1M we have discussed our part in the world and how we can help look after it .
This week in REY linked to our story ‘I Can Eat A Rainbow’ we have been exploring different coloured powder paints. We named the colours and then using the different tools mixed the paints together and watched what happened when the paints were mixed. The children really enjoyed this and loved seeing the paints turn […]
Yesterday the children used their understanding of Andy Goldsworthy’s style of art to create their own pieces. They used natural resources on the school grounds to create their outcomes. The children then explained their artwork and their reasoning behind the resources they chose.
This week in F1 we have read the story Leaf Man. The children went on their own leaf hunt to collect natural materials. They then used these to make their own leaf man picture.
Today, we practiced working with a partner to co-ordinate and mirror some basic moves. The children were great at working collaboratively and really enjoyed their learning 🩰
This week, we started on story boards for our own cart👀n ideas. The children were really creative and enjoyed drawing out their cartoons ✍️
Today we contributed to a joint willow sculpture which is now attached to one of the front fences in school for all to see. We learnt new skills and with a lot of resilience made some lovely leaves made of willow to add to the branches.
As part of our ‘sending and receiving’ PE lesson, we controlled the bounce of the ball and used this for passing to a partner.
We are so proud of our children continuing to develop their skills in the garden, we have some very green fingered children –
As part of our learning on fractions, 5/6H and 6B completed an orienteering course where the stations were all fractions problems. The children tried hard to solve all the problems and complete all the stations. They used cross curricular maths skills by reading and following maps as well.
On Friday, 5/6H wore their yellow clothing and discussed the importance of positive mental health.
This last few weeks 5/6H have been working on their passing, dribbling and shooting skills for football. There has been some excellent team work and improved skills on show.
As part of our P4C learning this week we discussed what it was like out of lockdown and new beginnings. We then discussed the question does everyone deserve a second chance. There were some very interesting responses.
Last week, year 6 visited Crucial Crew to learn about lots of different situations. They looked at hate crimes, fire safety, road safety and our favourite the magistrates court. The children learned lots of new things and how to cope in different situations.
This week in 3WB our P4C focus was ‘New beginnings’. Our discussion led us to think about our aspirations for the future and we had a variety of responses. All children really enjoyed listening to each other and asking questions to deeper our understanding of each response. Here are just a few examples but all […]

Team F2L are all feeling that smiley yellow feeling today. The shiny yellow thing in the sky even came out to see us too ☀️ What a wonderful day to think about keeping our minds healthy.
In P4C this afternoon we looked at a book called ‘Old friends, new friends’ and then had a think about what we could do to make new friends before looking at our question. Is it ever OK to make new friends? We had some really insightful thoughts and we have concluded that we are pretty […]
Our task this week was to identify the different layers of the rainforest, decide which animals may live there and then research about the layers. We enjoyed being able to ‘be in the rainforest’ to complete this task!
This week in literacy we have been indentifying the features of non chronological reports by looking at different examples. In preparation for our own writing, we have been reseaching facts from our library books, taking notes of the key words and beginning to sort our reseach under sub headings. This will help us when we […]
