World Book Day

We had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day 2018. The children came dressed as their favourite book characters and enjoyed sharing their stories across the classes. Thank you to all the children who entered the ‘share a story bunting design’ competition – winners will be announced next week.

Don’t worry, be happy!

Reception and Key Stage 1 have had a fantastic first day of World Book Week. Today, we explored an Anthony Browne story, ‘Silly Billy’. Poor Billy worries about everything; shoes, hats, clouds and even giant birds. Until one day his Grandma gives him a worry doll. This story inspired us to make our own worry dolls and share our everyday worries. The children made wonderful dolls, wrote about their worries and even acted out some ‘worry doll’ stories they composed together. Great work everybody 👍

Whales class mono-printing workshop

Year 1 & 2 have been experimenting with a new printing technique in their art workshops with Mrs Randle. They created ‘seasons’ inspired prints, drawing foxes, leaves and hedgehogs.

Year 2 have been adding another layer to their mono-prints. Using oil pastels to create more texture , pattern and colour. They are such an imaginative and creative group! Mrs Randle
