The Eye Of A Dragon
Developing the skills they had learnt with the clay pencil pots, the children made some super dragon eyes to accompany their report writing on dragons.
The children really enjoyed making their own clay pencil pots in our Design and Technology sessions! We firstly practiced the techniques of coiling, pinching, and scoring which they then used to create their own designs. We have evaluated our finished product and we cannot wait to start using them to keep our pencils tidy!
Our Christmas nativity play was rather different this year as we were unable to put on the traditional performance in the hall. Instead, the Key Stage One team and myself decided to make a film which would allow the children to stay safely in their bubbles.
The children in Elk Class had great fun acting their parts in the school grounds, whilst those in Reindeer and Fallow provided some terrific singing wearing their fabulous Christmas jumpers! They all worked very hard learning their lines and singing their songs and from the smiles on their faces, loved every minute of it!

We thoroughly enjoyed Autumn day at the end of term. After doing activities in the classroom, we went on the field and playground identifying things we found growing and had great fun in the autumn leaves!
We Found Out About Barn Owls!
The children have worked very hard gathering information for their reports on Barn Owls. You can see some super examples of the beautifully presented work below. Click on an image for a magnified view.
I have been really impressed with the family portraits painted by the children in the style of artist Quentin Blake who we have been learning about this term. They learnt how to colour mix and draw in his style and used his technique not only in their portraits but also in our PHSE topic to portray feelings. You can see some super examples below.
Learning About Healthy Eating
We really enjoyed doing the Eat Well plate jigsaw to find out the different food groups that we need to eat to stay healthy.
Enjoying Our PE!
We had a great lesson improving our balancing skills in PE when we had lots of fun making skipping rope balancing tracks.
