Today, we used our pencil sketching skills to create line drawings of sailing boats, linked to our class text Kensuke’s Kingdom. Children then quickly transferred these pencil skills into pen drawings becoming braver with their line experimentation as the afternoon went on.

Today, 5/6H and 6B used their knowledge of place value and the Olympics to complete a challenging orienteering course. This included so many skills including map reading, place value knowledge and spelling. Everyone had a great time carrying out the activity!
5/6H looked at some famous moments from the Olympics including Usain Bolt winning the 100m, Super Saturday from 2012, Derrick Redmond in Barcelona and Eric the Eel. We then discussed what makes a winner. There were some very well thought out responses. We decided that winning gold didn’t just mean you were a winner!
We made tangram pictures of Olympic sports today, practising our fine motor skills in 1/2B 🔷🔺🟢
The last couple of weeks, 5/6H have been producing some different pieces of artwork and design technology learning. They have focused on Olympic posters for painting and Olympic kits to design. The children tried really hard with the learning they produced.

In Y1/2B, we have been practising some of our sketching skills to reveal our Olympic sporting theme. Can you guess from our work? 🔍
As part of our DT project, we designed, made and evaluated our own Olympic medals in Y1/2B. We decided our medals must have the Olympic rings and the goddess of victory, Nike. They should be shiny and durable. They could have a ribbon attached, to wear around the neck. 🏅
Our Science investigation on push and pull forces (in sports) generated the question: How much force will make a ball travel the furthest? 🎾⚽️
Today we challenged ourselves to making the Olympic Rings using folding of paper techniques (Origami). It was really challenging but we persevered. We most definitely did not use a dot of glue to secure a couple of the main joins. Did we 6B? 🙈
