Our puppets are well and truly on the way to being completed. This week we have cut out our designs using a seam allowance and used a running stitch to join all the different parts. All the children have worked really hard to make sure their stitches were neat and straight! A great job by all!
What an amazing week we have had welcoming all our children back into school.
This week, we revisited some ‘lockdown’ learning’ and pulled out the Victorian recipes we created to make bread. Our recipes included many herbs which was believed to help with simple aliments. We included Rosemary, Sage and Dill. The taste test went down a treat!
Both the children in school and at home thoroughly enjoyed getting dressed up as their favourite book characters. The staff in school also had lots of fun recording themselves reading their favourite stories for the children to guess.
Year 3 and 4 have fully embraced the Victorian era this week! We have evaluated the differences in how the rich and poor lived, focussing on clothing. Check out these poor children, their teachers look super strict!
What a wonderful time 3HJ had enjoying the recent snow day! Take a look and the magnificent snowmen and ladies constructed by some of the children in our crew! Top effort which certainly deserves a lovely mug of hot chocolate!
As you can see, our ‘Final Products’ are exceptional pieces of work. The children showed absolute resilience, working hard to produce a non chronological report about either a moth or bee. In addition, you can see the detailed pencil sketches. Here the children have used and applied different shading and tone techniques to create their own beautiful artwork of their mini beast.
This week, the children have been getting into the festive mood by creating Christmas decorations and Christmas cards for their family members. In addition, the children have begun to write thank you poems for the key workers as well as design and create a Christmas box in which festive treats will be put inside and delivered to key workers.
Next week, the children will be continuing to feel festive as we look forward to the final week of 2020!
As part of our Wonderful World of Bugs Expedition, we though it would be a ‘Special Treat’ to sample an array of delicious goodies including locusts, buffalo worms, crickets and mealworms. We thought carefully about the different textures and tastes.AS you can see, lots of fun was had by all!
The children have been working hard on writing up their non chronological reports. They have worked incredibly well with their partner and demonstrated some excellent team work skills. The final product is nearly complete and the children are looking forward to sharing their work very soon.
This week has seen the start of our writing for the final product. We have worked extremely hard in pairs to complete different paragraphs all about moths and bees. 3HJ then critiqued each paragraph together and redrafted. The quality of writing throughout has ben phenomenal and all children have blown me away! We are so excited to reveal our products you all! Watch this space!
