This week we were visited by the poet Neal Zetter in class. The children took part in a workshop and then learnt a section of one of Neal's Poems 'Gorilla Ballerina'. They then performed the whole poem to Year R,2 and 3 in assembly. Everyone made it into the book of achievement for their fantastic efforts! We finished the week by making our own Gorilla Ballerinas!
This term in Art, we have looked at colour and at the artist Kandinsky. The children have created their own masterpieces based on Kandinky's 'Circles'. They are amazing!
Maths - greater than/less than
This week we have been comparing amounts and numbers, using language such as more than/less than/equal to. We made Number Gators to introduce the greater than/less than symbol. The Gator ALWAYS eats the bigger number!
International Day of Peace
This week the school has been focusing on what 'peace' may mean to them. We learnt that the dove is a symbol of peace and so we made our own doves!
Today we learnt the 3 primary colours - red, blue and yellow. The class then had a go at mixing these together to make secondary colours.
