The Seals are true Dragon Artists!

Friday, February 15th, 2019

Wow!

Wow! What an amazing bunch of budding artists! The children have spent the last two days adding detail step by step to their final pictures; combining all the art skills they have learnt during our topic `Dragon Tales.`

We have illustrated our own story book and learnt many drawing and painting skills. Take a look at how we are all concentrating really hard on adding detail to our dragons. They are truly `Works of Art!`

Ready for half term!

Friday, February 15th, 2019

We won the reads! Starfish were the class with the highest number of reads this week, with an amazing 117 ticks, to represent all the efforts that most children in our class and their grown ups have made to dedicate a bit of time to a book at home. We enjoyed our 10 minutes extra playtime in the sunshine today!

We would like to wish all of you a lovely half term week, don’t stop reading Starfish!

All about WWII day and the Mayans!

Friday, February 8th, 2019

Brace yourself for lots of pictures of our learning! We have had a very busy week: we celebrated the end of our history topic with a WWII dress up day, during which we experienced air raids and had to shelter to safety, got to make chocolate spread out of potatoes and cocoa powder and experienced being chosen by host families (played by members of staff) as evacuees! Our grown ups came into our classroom at the end of the day to have a look at our posters and some of them were brave enough to try our WWII chocolate spread and biscuits!

Following such an exciting day, on Wednesday we were introduced to our new history topic, all about the Mayans! Clive Pig, a brilliant historian and story teller, took us back to Mayans times, with his stories, souvenirs and plays.

Have a good weekend and read at home, reads numbers could still improve in Starfish!

 

 

Safer Internet Day in Seahorses.

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

Seahorses have been busy talking about how to stay safe on the internet this week. We focused on giving consent, giving out personal information and were given some top tips to stay safe. The children made some posters to encourage people to stay safe but also have fun.
