Recently we were lucky enough to go and see the BFG at the Octagon Theatre. Folowing our visit we have been designing our own Dream Jars.
Our topic this term has been The Great Fire of London. Look at our wonderful displays we have done. We have been working hard on our artwork.
We celebrated ‘Diwali’, the Hindu ‘Festival of Light’. After listening to the story of ‘Rama and Sita’, we made special diva lamps using clay. We had to push our thumbs into the ball of clay and then squeeze it round the edges to make a bowl shape. It was hard work! When it had dried, we painted it different colours and decorated it with sequins. We put a tea light in each of them and they looked beautiful when we lit them.
Mrs Kathiriya, our class governor, came in to tell us how she celebrates Diwali with her family. She read the story of Rama and Sita and brought in some of the beautiful clothes that they wear and some children tried them on. Take a look at our photos.
We had a visit from Miss Dibnah, ‘The Oral Hygienist’. She talked about the ‘good and bad’ food and drink for our teeth. She also showed us the correct way to brush our teeth and we all got a new toothbrush and toothpaste so that we could carry on practising at home, to keep our teeth clean and healthy.
We also had a visit from ‘Guide Dogs for the Blind’. Toni told us all about the things that the ‘special’ dogs can do to help people who cannot see. Quilla, her guide dog, was lovely and she let us stroke her.
Despite the sun not shining, everyone had a fantastic time at our Summer Fair.
We have been learning about floods and how we can ensure buildings are made more resistant to flooding. We have made some fantastic models.
On 16th March, all pupils took part in our 10th Super Learning Day. The theme of the day was ‘Colour’. During the day solved problems, used their imaginations, got physical, competed, developed and improved their teamwork, communication, creativity, design and observational skills.
