We have been learning about the seven continents of the world and the four countries of the United Kingdom. We have been learning how to use our classroom environment to support our learning. In class we use maps in different subjects.
Amber class have read Come Away from the Water, Shirley by John Burningham. From this adventurous story of a fearless girl, they have created artwork inspired by the pebble beach where the story began. Firstly, the children learnt how to create curved lines by only using their wrists then they learnt how make curved lines longer and shorter by moving their grip on the pencil. They used pencil, biro, crayon and finally water colour. Check out the display outside of our classroom.

Pirate ship building
22 October 2019
Amber Class worked incredibly hard today, designing and constructing a pirate ship using cardboard boxes. They developed their teamwork skills by sharing jobs and supporting one another. They used different strategies to make the cardboard stronger and used different design ideas to make the ship appealing. Let’s celebrate it by having a dress-up day on the first day of school! Dress up as a pirate on Monday 4th November.
Sadly I can’t upload photographs so you’ll have to come and see it.
