We are really enjoying gymnastics at the moment. We have been practising our skills of balancing, jumping, travelling and climbing in different ways.
African sunset silhouettes- 04/02/2020
We have been very inspired by different pieces of African Art work in our topic sessions. We created our own sunset backgrounds using watercolours and then cut out different pictures to stick on our sunsets.
We started our first session of gymnastics today. Our activity was to practise holding a balance on our own and then with a partner for three seconds. To challenge us more we tried holding a balance with a beanbag.
PE: Team games- 17/01/2020
In PE we have been playing lots of team games. Today we really enjoyed playing the 'scarecrow' game where we had to work together as a team to dress a member of our team, in lots of PE equipment as fast as we could in order to be the winners. The 'scarecrow' had to try and balance all the equipment until everybody had a turn. We loved this game and are very excited to play it again.
Exploring the tablets- 15/01/2020
Today we enjoyed using the tablets for the first time. We used a paint programme and practised selecting different sized brushes and colours. Some of us did pictures, whilst others had a go at writing their names.
Passports to Africa! 13/01/2020
Our new topic for this half term is Africa. As a class thought about how we could travel to Africa and what we might need to take with us. We then made our own passports and even had a go at creating our own signatures! We are very excited to see where our topic takes us next!
PSHE: Making Elmer Mobiles- 09/01/2020
As part of our PSHE unit of work, we looked at the story of Elmer. As a class we discussed how Elmer is different to all the other elephants, but she is still an elephant. We then thought about how we are all different to each other and how it is good to be different. To represent our learning we made our own Elmer mobiles, with the challenge of creating our own patchwork pattern using lots of different colours. Our mobiles are very special and have pride of place hanging in our classroom.

Space pictures- 05/11/2019
As part of our Art and Topic work, we used the oil pastels to create our own space pictures. We thought very carefully about what planets we were going to draw and what colours we needed.
Our new topic- Space! 30/10/2019
Our new topic for this half term is Space. These children were very inspired by our new topic and decided to draw pictures and research information by looking at books, in their own time. We are looking forward to seeing where our topic takes us!
