This week we followed an online live lesson to recreate Van Gogh’s Starry Night. It was brilliant to see work for home and school learners which were all a bit different, despite following the same tutorial!
Blended learning. I am so proud of everyone in Mexico Class with their brilliant attitude and enthusiasm for their learning both at home and at school. A very big WELL DONE to you all!
Medieval bosses and corbels.
After our virtual tours of Norwich Cathedral and Wymondham Abbey this week, we carried out some observational sketches of bosses and corbels.
Once we had done this, the children used their imaginations and produced some FANTASTIC work both at home and at school!
Have a look.
We have been very busy in Year One over the last 2 weeks. We have learnt lots about the furniture designers Chippendale and Mackintosh and used their designs to make our own chairs.
Last week, we all took part in a Santa Run. We ran around the track 6 times…It was really good fun but we were a bit tired at the end!
We had our Christmas Dinner at school on Friday. We made hats for the occasion and listened to Christmas songs. The food was delicious!!!
We enjoyed recording our Christmas song for our families and we wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Check your Tapestry account of our Facebook page for the video.
Today we made mincemeat muffins! We weighed the ingredients, mixed them and poured the mixture into the cases. Once baked, we will do the best bit: eating!
Another busy few weeks in Spain class in which the children have shown brilliant stamina in the run up to the end of a very unusual term.
Maths has seen us sharing objects, grouping objects and building arrays to strengthen their understanding of our new times tables (3, 4 and 8).
In English the children have been creating their own woolly mammoth cleaning kits and selling them to the class! They are now using their kits to write an instruction text on ‘How to wash a Woolly Mammoth’.
Topic has seen them researching the Iron Age and presenting their findings using Keynote on the iPad. They have shown some great knowledge and enjoyed showing off their animation skills too.
And of course, Christmas has started to rear its head, last week in the form of a Santa Dash where they all earned their certificate for giving their all by doing 5 golden laps of our running track.
