W/C 10th June

In Art this week, The children enjoyed following a draw along video to create their very own pirate ship. They then used watercolours to paint them like the artist ‘Howard Pyle’.
 During our Art workshop, the children explored the theme of connection through the medium of photography! The children created their own self-portrait collages where they drew illustrations and wrote captions that represented what or who they feel connected to. They also conveyed this through taking photos of themselves using props and thinking about their facial expressions. It was wonderful to see the children get so creative and reflective as they created their inventive images with their adults! The children will hone their photography skills further this week as they direct and film their very own short film inspired by The Secret Garden

In English we have been continuing our pirate theme. We had a visit from ‘Pirate Jed’ who answered lots of our questions. We have also been learning all about what a fact and an opinion is.

The children loved taking part in the football fundraiser. Well done and thank you for all your donations.
In History we have been looking at different famous pirates. The children have found it fascinating learning all about ‘Blackbeard’, ‘Anne Bonney’ and ‘William Kidd’.
Puffins have been learning all about fractions during their maths lessons. We have been sharing objects, shapes and even some yummy Jaffa cakes!!!
In Science the children have been exploring magnets! They have found out what objects have magnets inside them and what objects around the classroom are magnetic and non-magnetic.
