The children in Swallows looked at portraits by various artists. They then created their own portrait of half of their face using pencils, pens and charcoal.
This week we have been starting to learn our new text 'Snow White' written by Ed Bryan. We found images from the story around the hall and worked as a class to organise these and add key phrases.
Swallows class enjoyed a trip to Rosemoor Gardens. They observed deciduous and evergreen trees, found plants that flower in winter and collected leaves for their reindeer antlers. After lunch, they explored the gardens and went on a sculpture hunt.
Swallows have been learning about the value of different coins and have explored the shape, colour and size of coins.
Kingfishers took up the role of detectives! They had to find evidence to back up statements that have been made about the Gunpowder plot. They looked closely at different sources using a gallery approach, whereby 19 different images were placed around the room for them to view.
Afterwards, the children considered which statements were most likely to be true and decided that claims were strengthened when multiple sources supported them.
Thank you for your generous donations to Children in Need.
Kingfishers loved seeing one another in fancy dress and pyjamas!
