Sports Week 2021

Class 1 have had a fantastic Sports Week. We have taken part in a variety of Sports such as Interhouse Races and ball games. We had a cheerleading coach come in to teach cheerleading skills and a coach to run a mini Olympics. During the week we focused on the Sport beliefs of Determination, Respect, Self – belief, Honesty, Teamwork and Passion. Within Art we also made a medal and focused our minds to make a marble run. We played on each others too!

We went to the ICT suite and enjoyed creating some artwork of our favourite sports. Football was a popular choice. They concentrated on the background as well as the sports person.  Sports artists too. Look at our wonderful Olympic art. They are fab and so colourful.

We enjoyed mini Olympics today. We looked at a range of skills all whilst having loads of fun and keeping fit. Class 1 had great fun doing the skipping challenge. We were focused and ready, some people were a little competitive which is great. A super new skill to learn. What fun!

We all took part in the school skipping challenge to see how many skips we could do in 30 seconds!

Arts Week 2021

Arts week was based around drawing this year with the theme being ‘The Big Draw’ In Butterflies class we first explored our sketching pencils which ranged from B to 6B. We explored the thickness of the pencils and then used these pencils to learn the drawing techniques of hatching, cross hatching, stippling and shading.

In Maths we looked at the geometry of 2D shapes and how we could use these shapes to make a flower. First we used a circle overlapping to make a flower and then a square. We were very pleased with how these flowers turned out! Within English we learnt about illustrators; the style they draw in and how they became an illustrator. The artists we focused on were Axel Scheffler, Beatrix Potter and EH Shepherd. During the week we learnt how to draw a flower using our drawing techniques which built up to looking at the painting by Vincent Van Gogh to draw a collection of flowers. We also enjoyed regular Draw with Rob sessions and playing a variety of drawing games which Class 1 have enjoyed playing after Arts Week.

Our amazing Easter bonnets

Butterflies Class have had a fantastic week. We have been learning about The Queen and asking questions we would like to know about her. We were also lucky enough to have a visit from The Queen to ask her our questions. Over the next couple of days we will be writing The Queen a letter to find out even more about her. Class 1 also painted her portrait.
In Maths this week we have been learning about capacity and measuring different amounts. 
Butterflies Class have been continuing their Science learning of Plants and we planted Broad beans and we will be watching them grow over the next couple of weeks.
