This week in our art lessons we have been painting ceramic plates. This is because we have been researching the work of Picasso and found out that he began to paint pottery and ceramics instead of paintings! He was worried his paintings would fade over time, so decided that he could paint on to ceramics and use a kiln to ensure his designs would stand the test of time. We took a look at some of his work and used it as inspiration for our own!
Here are some of the results.
We have had a visit from Sunita this morning, who told us the story of Rama and Sita. We learnt about the Hindu Gods and the celebration of Diwali. This is happening on the 19th October and children should be able to tell you all about it over the weekend!
Here are a few photos from the morning.
Children are settling in really well to Thoresby Class this year, and have already produced some wonderful pieces of work!
We have worked hard on our mental maths this week, as well as the use of conjunctions in our writing and justifying our opinions in R.E.
Children have most enjoyed producing their own artwork, inspired by Picasso's cubism. Here are a few examples:
Next week we will have lots of exciting news to share, including the results of our homemade carrot muffins!
We have had a very full week this week in Thoresby Class, starting our full curriculum timetable. We have looked at place value in maths, non-chronological reports in literacy, explored Picasso's famous Guernica painting and completed two rounds of a circuit in P.E!
Here are a few wonderful photos from our R.E lesson, where we looked at various images of prayer, and discussed Christian commitment to God.
Thanks for reading!
We have had a lovely couple of days in Thoresby class this week. The children have been working on creating their own animal based on characteristics they have so I can get to know them better. We have had animals such as Iglona the Dophlysh, Tina the Mooeesett and Jeff the Marabeb! The children have really enjoyed creating their animals, as well as deciding on its name, diet and habitat.
We then created the animals from salt dough, and have spent the morning painting them!
Children will be bringing their creations home this weekend - we hope you love them as much as we loved making them!
Until next week,
