Welcome to Denmark class. We are the LDC (the Specialist Resource Base for Speech & Language) and our teachers are Mrs King and Mrs Street. Mrs Brown and Mrs Riccobena are our Teaching Assistants.
We arrived one morning to discover something has crashed landed in our school garden! After lots of investigating and researching, we discovered green slime and a little alien was hiding under the cone! We made the alien feel welcome by inviting him into class, paying him compliments and showing him what a lovely class we are. In art we created space pictures for ‘Alie the Alien’ to feel more at home. These were based on the artist ‘Peter Thorpe’ and used his style of oil pastels on black paper. We have designed and labelled alien body parts and created salt dough models which we painted in neon colours.
Hello and welcome back everyone!
We have had a fun week back in Denmark class. Even though our classroom might look a little different to how it was before, we soon realised that a lot of things were just the same! The children have had a wonderful time catching up with each other this week, talking about all the fantastic things they did over the summer holidays. We used these ideas and thoughts to create a class poem which we named ‘Summer is….’. We used our speaking and listening skills to share our ideas and read through our sentence at the end.
In our art lessons, we learnt about portrait artists and looked how different artists have various styles and techniques. This year, the children decided to paint ‘realistic’ self-portraits using paints. They had to carefully mix and test the paint colours to make sure they got the right shade for them. They concentrated so hard on the tiny details and we are so proud of the results!
Next week something…..or someone will come to visit us from a far away place….watch this space!
