Art club

Art Club have spent the Spring Term looking at different artists. We read ‘The Dot’ by Peter Reynolds and then looked at different pointillism artists for example Georges Seurat and Aboriginal art. We then created our own dot pictures using different media. We have also looked at different abstract artists and made our own abstract style of printing blocks.

Maths workshop - parent feedback

We received some lovely feedback from parents regarding our recent Maths Workshops. Many parents described them as ‘informative’ and ‘enjoyable’. Thank you for your continued support. Fantastic workshop. I really enjoyed seeing how the children learn. Thank you for the opportunity. A very helpful session which brought to life the ways in which children are learning.

The dining hall was transformed into London in 1666 complete with different shops from the time. Master Craig took the children on a journey through London. Children could have a go at candle-making at the chandlers, making bread at the bakery, weaving, sewing and leather-work.

A Mysterious Discovery in the Wildlife Area

There is an electric buzz, a lot of talk and excitement around the Year 2 classrooms this week. Mr Darke interrupted the day on Monday as he shared some mysterious and curious findings in the Wildlife Area on his return from half term. On his rounds of inspecting the Wildlife Area, Mr Darke had spotted some smoke wafting into the air, thinking this was strange and a bit of a concern, he investigated further. Mr Darke soon discovered a large nest with some unusual eggs in them near the smoke. Mr Darke acted quickly and secured the area off and alerted all staff. Once the area was safe, Mr Darke allowed the year 2 children to go outside and look at the mysterious discovery. Of course the child
