Just before we broke up for Easter, we found out that we had been awarded our Silver Eco
Schools award. Well done to everyone involved.
We have already had busy start to the term in class Fletcher. It has been lovely to hear about all of the interesting activities you have been up to over the Easter holidays. The children have been full of beans!
Our enquiry this half-term is exploring what we can find in the garden during Spring. We have already hit the ground running by discussing what the children have seen over the holidays and looking at what is new in our outdoor area. This week we have been investigating plants and what they need to survive. We will be planting our own seeds in preparation for planting in the garden area. Any donations of soil, bark, seeds, plants, decorative pots will be greatly appreciated. We are hoping to turn our planters into a sensory area exploring taste, smell and touch; so we would gratefully accept any plants which could help with this. We will then be moving onto birds, nesting and mini-beasts.
Class Fletcher have had a busy couple of weeks with Mrs Bland. They are now superb storytellers. The children have become experts is retelling and writing stories based on the Billy Goats Gruff and Goldilocks and the three bears. As well as telling stories the children have explored character descriptions and writing simple instructions.
To help save the Billy Goats from the Troll the children decided to grow their own grass. During the growing process children have developed their observation and scientific skills. They have also noticed how plants differ from each other and have drawn detail pictures to label the similarities and differences.
Our colour enquiry is developing well in Class Adams. The children thoroughly enjoyed their Holi celebration and have now begun to explore how colour hit the world after World War II in the form of Pop Art. They were not sure that they would enjoy being Pop artists but they’re slowly changing their minds. This week we have discovered the works of Warhol and Lichtenstein and used the iPads to electronically change a picture in the style of Andy Warhol.
