In art this week, we enjoyed sketching different plants we found outside. It was important that we looked very carefully at the plants so we could add detail to our sketches and use the correct colours.
We then collected a variety of different leaves which we used to do some printing.
We had a very exciting morning at Pizza Express. The children thoroughly enjoyed making their own margarita pizza and then sampling it when we got back to school. They all looked and smelt delicious!
We enjoyed being geologists in our two science lessons this week. After going on a rock hunt around school last week, identifying natural and man-made rocks, we had the opportunity to carefully examine different rocks this week. We identified the properties of the different rocks before choosing two and comparing these.
Yesterday, we learnt about the three types rocks: sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. To help us remember these, we made our own chocolate rocks. The best bit, I’m sure the children would say, was the eating some of the chocolate at the end!
We enjoyed playing with the chime bars in our music lesson. We were playing the E and D notes and used them to create a tune.
It definitely made it more exciting being dressed up as Where’s Wally! The children looked fantastic so thank you for your support with this!
Due to worsening conditions, and an unsafe school site, we have made the unprecedented decision to close school today.
We will continue to monitor the forecast for Friday and keep parents updated via text/email.
We will rearrange our own World Book Day next week.
I am sorry for any inconvenience that this has caused.
On Tuesday we had a special visitor in Year 3..Elvis the husky came into school to see us. We were amazed by his size and thick coat! Elvis and Mr Moore told us some interesting facts about huskies and how similar they are to wolves.
Meeting Elvis has really helped us imagine how big Starjik’s wolves are.
