We’ve been working on different shading techniques and experimenting with tone in art today. Here are just some of the fantastic pieces they produced! Do encourage them to keep practising at home; they’re fast learning that art is never ‘wrong’ or ‘bad’, and that anything can be improved using different techniques to re-work it.
Doves had a go at making their own volcanic eruptions today, as part of our geography focus this term. We learnt about lava flows and pyroclastic flows, and made the classroom stink of vinegar as a result!
Children in Dove class had great fun ‘whipping’ up chocolate mousses this week!
Another fantastic presentation from children on our theme of humility and how aid workers selflessly came to the assistance of victims of the earthquake in Haiti in 2010.
Key stage 2 classes were lucky enough to have been joined recently by the Year 10 drama students from Neatherd High School, who gave us the first preview of their upcoming performance of Hansel and Gretel. It was a fantastic experience and really enhanced the children’s understanding of the story, which was our focus for World Book Week. Not only did we get to watch the students perform, but we also took part in a drama workshop. The students said that our children’s ideas were so creative that they were going to use some of them in the actual show! Many thanks to all from Neatherd and we wish you all the best for the play…break a leg!
