Art week 2016

Monday was the start of this years Art Week and the children enjoyed meeting Helena Harris -a local artist, who explained that any of our ideas can be turned into artwork. During the week each of us will be making a bird using a variety of techniques and we are looking forward to seeing them on display along the corridor very soon.

Greek Day Part 1

Wow- the Greeks have arrived !

The day has begun finding out lots about the Greeks- all of KS2 joined together in the hall to find out about voting, laws and medicine.

The children learnt about the voting system and the girls were outraged that they didn’t get a vote!

Master chef and Theatre Masks

The children have returned fully refreshed after their long weekend excited about their Greek day tomorrow.

They have been continuing with their comic strips about Heracles (now known as Hurcules) and working hard on written methods in maths.

Many thanks to Mrs Bluff and Mrs Packham for working with the children this afternoon to make Hummus and Tzatziki- apparently it is very tasty (having licked out the bowls!)P1050755

They have also been busy making Greek Theatre masks thinking carefully about facial expressions.

We are looking forward to having a proper taste of the food tomorrow and also meeting our visiting story teller.
