Practise, Practise, Practise!

Posted: 18 September 2020

This half term, we are focussing on Netball in our PE lessons. So far we have been practising our passing and catching skills, as well as how to intercept the ball. Each week we will continue to learn new skills with both Mr Allen and Miss Able.

We are lucky that the weather is so nice at the moment!

World of Illusion

We have already begun our new topic, World of Illusions, in which we will be looking at work by artist Maurits Cornelis Escher.

Our first task was to discuss and plan our learning journey, which will result in us completing our own piece of work in the style of Escher at the end.

As a class, we have already done some research into who Escher was and looked at some of his most famous pieces of work. We also talked about our favourite pieces.



Safer Internet Day - 11/02/20

Posted: 11 February 2020

In Starfish today, we have been discussing e-safety, as it is Safer Internet Day. The children were given different scenarios to look at and decide how they would react to each of them. As a class we discussed how to protect our online identity, which included what usernames or pictures to display on any profiles, and how to be respectful to other internet users. The class worked in groups and it was good to see them all talking through their ideas.
