Goldfinches class have been reading a story called The Pirates Next Door. Throughout the week they have been discussing the text, answering questions about it but also learning to retell the story using actions.
In science this afternoon, the children tested different materials to see whether they were waterproof. From their results, the children were able to determine which material would be suitable to make a lid for a treasure chest.
In science this afternoon Goldfinches have been sorting materials according to their properties.
This half term we have been learning all about pirates, life at sea and boats. This afternoon, the children in Goldfinches had lots of fun designing and making pirate ships using junk modelling.
"We have far more in common with each other than that which divides us." Here is our super artwork inspired by this quote.
All the children in KS1 have been learning about Harvest in their RE lessons. The children and their families in Woodpeckers, Kingfishers and Goldfinches have donated tins, bottles and boxes of food and created a Harvest hamper. The Foxton Centre were over the moon to receive all of our generous harvest donations. It is so nice to help others in our neighbourhood. Well done everybody!
We have been learning all about the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Hundertwasser believed clothing should be unique to an individual and often wore mismatched socks! The children came to school today wearing odd socks just like the artist! We also spent the afternoon creating our own interpretation of his art work.
