As part of our learning about when our grandparents were little, we looked at schools in the past. We know that children used to use a nib pen and dip it into ink to write. We experimented using our own nib pens (made out of straws) and dipped them into 'ink' (paint)....
As part of our computing work, we have been learning how to use different tools in a paint program. We looked at the work of Mondrian. We then used the line tool and the fill tool to recreate our own pictures. This is what we created:
In Maths, we have worked hard on our place value knowledge. We can partition numbers into tens and ones!
We experimented with 4 different methods of creating firework art: printing, chalk, oil pastels and paint splattering/flicking! It was great fun!
In PE this term we are doing Gymnastics! We have been experimenting with different balances and rolls!
Today the children completed their final Play Leader training session, in readiness to become Playground Pals. In groups of 3, they each led an activity as if they were working with the younger children in school at playtime.
