Chatsworth Trip - May 2024

Performance poetry

In English this week we have been learning about Acrostic and Performance poetry. Please see verse one of our chosen performance poem, 'Mummy.' The children were fantastic at adding actions and using different tones of voice to perform the rest of the poem in small groups. Well done.

Year 3 Egyptian Art

 In Art we have been learning all about the Ancient Egyptian style using signs and symbols. We created our own papyrus papers and then used them to make scrolls to tell others about ourselves using signs and symbols.

Year 3 Prehistoric Art

We have been learning all about cave art and creating our own simple animal sketches using chalks and charcoal, thinking about the shapes we use and how to add minimal detail. We then used berries and spices to create our own paints just like they would have done in prehistoric times to make our own cave walls of animal sketches and handprints just like the famous Cueva de las Manos.

Year 3 DT - Pneumatic toys

What a fantastic first DT day of the year. Today we made moving toys that use air to produce movement (pheumatic). Look at our fabulous designs!

Year 3 Art project - Sketching

What a fabulous first week back at school! We have been learning all about the artists Max Ernst and Maud Purdy to create our own 'frottage,' pieces of art. Here are some of our finished pieces.

Year 1 2021 - 2022

Year 1 'Get to Know Chesterfield' Trip

Forest Schools Autumn Term 2021

 Definitely grimiest, coldest weather! Some chilly fingers but all managed to make a stick man and have some fun in the forest.

A lovely session of children exploring and experimenting with different things they found in the shed and forest. 
The basket of ropes meant some children explored tying things to a rope and a stick! All made a stick man and placed him on the family tree!
 All the children are so keen and engaged. Lovely imagination. Including turning  the hut into a McDonalds, where the children cooked and took orders. The mud kitchen was used as the main cooking area and the children all worked together.  All the children made a stick man and placed him on the "family tree"
Wonderful imagination. A long stick became a car, then a taxi as it dropped people off, then a broom as they flew around the forest. Some lovely pictures of bears and pigs   The mud kitchen was where they all went for soup and lots got busy with baskets collecting " fresh leaves"   All did amazing with knots and managed to tie their knot to a stick.  A wet, cold afternoon but all so busy and engaged.
What a lovely afternoon exploring and finding bugs.  Some children found worms and sorted them into different test tubes! 
Great effort at knots and all children managed to join two sticks together!
