  • Quartz Makers! 1610907053-img-20210117-wa0004

    It’s been a busy week so far, with lots of sculpting, printing, drawing and bird feeding happening.

  • Remembrance Day img_0164

    On Wednesday, we took time to stop, think and reflect about all the men, woman and animals who have lost their lives serving their country. The children produced some amazing artwork to create a couple of remembrance displays.

  • Quartz Canal Walk img_0351

    This morning we set off down to Capel’s Mill to begin our canal walk. We walked all the way to Wallbridge Basin, where the Thames and Severn Canal meets the Stroudwater Canal.

    Can you remember the place and meanings of these canal terms?
    water level
    fish pass
    narrow boat

  • Print block making img_0508

    Quartz are in the process of writing and publishing our own story books. We look forward to sharing these in the coming weeks but in the meantime, here we are making print blocks which will be used for printing designs on our books’ front and back covers.

  • Class Displays img_0069

    With parents’ evening approaching, we thought it would be lovely for you to see what your children have been up to. We may not be able to meet face to face but both myself and Mrs Jowers look forward to talking with you all over the phone both Tuesday and Wednesday. I hope you are as proud of your children as we are. They have settled in quickly and are already producing wonderful pieces of work.

  • World Maths Day! dsc02865

    To celebrate ‘World Maths Day’ we took part in a range of activities. Have a look at our photos to see just how much fun we had!

  • Concertina books group5

    Inspired by our class book “A River” by Mark Martin, we have published our own concertina books.

    We wrote about a journey along the Stroud canals and then made multi-media illustrations using pastels, inks, collage and tape. We also designed and printed our front and back covers.

    Here are the beautiful results!

  • Properties and changes of materials img_0138

    This term, the children have carried out a range of experiments looking at materials and their properties; thermal conductors and insulators; electrical conductors and insulators; dissolving and irreversible changes. The children are beginning to use scientific vocabulary to explain their results. It has been a great topic for us to get into this term. Just have a look at how busy we have been and how much fun we have had learning all about materials.

  • The digestive system img_0188

    Over the last few weeks, we have been looking at the digestive system. We also looked at the functions of all the basic parts of the digestive system in humans. To consolidate our learning, we took part in an extremely fun yet messy experiment. This experiment showed us just what goes on inside our bodies.

    • Dragon Drawing!

      For tomorrow’s English lesson, you will be drawing your own dragon! You will then start thinking about adjectives to describe what your dragon looks like and its’ personality.

      Here is a link to Rob Biddulph’s page where he teaches us to draw a cartoon dragon. Have a look if you would like to or you can just create your own :)

      Follow the link below too, if you would like some help with adjective choices.

      Don’t forget to send us pictures of your wonderful creations,

      Mrs Barrett :)

    • NW's Amazing Dragon Poem

      I hope you all enjoyed listening to our story ‘Tell me a dragon’ today. NW enjoyed it so much that he used a quill to write an amazing poem based on the book.

Remember, if you decide to make a quill or any of the other ideas I recommended then please do send pictures of your work to us.
