Thursday 18th January - We are reading ‘The Cat Sat on the Mat’ by Joan Aiken. Emma, a character, was given a magical wishing mat and she used it to wish for lots of different things, including colourful paints. Today, the children painted a picture that they thought Emma could have painted. We then had a look at Emma’s picture in comparison to ours.
Monday 15th January - The children enjoyed PE with Sam, the Manchester City Coach. Today they focused on balancing and different balances using different parts of the body.
Monday 8th January - Today something magical happened...we saw some fairies in the Prayer Garden. We really enjoyed having a look around.
Monday 18th December 2017 - today we made gingerbread and it tasted delicious. We then wrote instructions for how to make gingerbread.
Monday 16th October 2017 - we have been talking about materials and their properties. Today we investigated which biscuits are suitable to build a biscuit bridge, depending on their properties. We had lots of fun and found it really hard not to eat the biscuits!
We visited Skipton Castle as part of our Castle topic and had a wonderful day exploring the castle.
We have been learning about Paul Klee, an abstract artist who liked to use shapes and bright colours in his work. Today we created our own version of Paul Klee’s ‘Castle and Sun.'
