Zoom with a Local Farm 

 

Linked to our WW2 topic and Mathematics we have had a Zoom session this week and last week with a local farm. During these sessions we have looked at how live on a farm would have been different during WW2 and now. Mrs Ellis, Mr Ellis and their son Tom Ellis, have also set the children challenges to complete - this week the children had to create a graph showing the growth of a calf. They also set us a maths challenge - this is currently a work in progress!

We Will Remember Them, November 2020

Watch the Rememberance Day video Reverend Clive Hicks has put together with contributions from various local primary schools. Watch out for the winners of our poetry competition performing their pieces!

RE 

 

In RE we have been looking at the 99 names of Allah in the Islamic religion. The children were all given a name each to writing in Arabic - they did this in a white pastel and then create resistance art by painting over it in water colours. The children then explained why the word given might be used to describe a God.

Class 4 have worked very hard as a group to create this amazing painting! It is based on the war artist, Thomas Lea’s, painting ‘The Two Thousand Yard Stare.’ The children each painted a section to create the overall image; the main skills they focused on were painting fine details and colour mixing! 
RE
In RE we have been learning about the ‘Nature of God’, linked to this we have been learning about the trinity in Christianity.  Please read our poems we have written based around the trinity!

Art

 

Today we had the pleasure of meeting the artist Katie Lalji(via Zoom), who paints jute bags for a living.  In class we are creating a large painting of a WW2 soldier (watch this space) using acrylic paints; Katie paints all of her bags with acrylics, so she was able to give us some excellent advice and tips for working with this type of paint!
