Here We Are : Letters and Poems

We read ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers as we returned to school. We used this fantastic book as inspiration to write letters to a special person in our lives. We also created list poems about our experience of sky-gazing. It’s great to be back!

RSPB Bird Watching Day!

On Thursday, we spent time surveying the local bird population. We then drew some of the birds we had seen using skills we had developed in our Art unit. 

For 'Cooking and nutrition Day' we were tasked with creating a healthy, savoury meal. 

We made a vegetable stir fry. It was delicious!

Art : Drawing Feathers

In Art this week, we have been learning to draw detail. We focussed on developing our use of line and tone to recreate photographs of feathers. 
Today we had a visit from ‘Legal Eagles’. 
We learned about how a Magistrates Court worked and took part in a mock trial.
