Bursting into Spring

We have been experimenting with different painting techniques.

After laying a colour wash, we used dowels, sponges, cotton buds and

cocktail sticks to paint trees and flowers creating these Spring like images.

World Book Day

The children really enjoyed dressing up to celebrate World Book Day and they had all thought carefully about a book and choosing their character.

Parable Presentations

In our RE learning we have been looking at parables.

In groups, Year 2 were tasked with presenting a parable to an audience, our Reception class.

They were given planning time to decide how to present it, what resources they would need, to split up the tasks between the group, create a script and rehearse.

The children worked extremely well with very little adult help. Their posters, plays and prayers were fantastic. The audience really enjoyed watching their presentations of The Good Samaritan, The Prodigal Son or The Lost Sheep.

They all took time to explain the meaning of their parable and showed

good understanding of the different stories.

Lights, Camel, Action

All children in Reception and Key Stage 1 took part in this year's Christmas production

with Year 2 taking the lead speaking roles.

The show told the nativity story with a modern twist through drama, song and dance.

The performances were amazing and all our visitors really enjoyed the show especially fans of "Strictly Come Dancing" as the dancing and choreography were judged by the panel comprising Caesar, the Innkeeper's wife and Donkey.

Caesar was not easy to impress but the Innkeeper's wife and Donkey were both

much more generous with their scores.

Well done to everyone; you were all fantastic and should be very proud of yourselves!

We made our own colourful pictures which were then cut into quarters. The individual quarter pieces were then re-arranged with others to create a very different picture.
