Making birds with clay – 1G

This week we concluded our topic for Art this term – clay.

The children began this topic by exploring clay, this then moved on to creating 3D shapes using clay. The children then practised making markings in clay using different tools. After close observational drawings of birds using models, 1G have now made their own birds using clay!

They worked hard and concentrated for long periods of time, pinching, stretching and perfecting their works of Art!

Visit to Catford Library – 1G

This afternoon we visited Catford Library. They gave us a special library card just for 1G. We listened to 2 super stories and then got to explore the library. We borrowed 5 books as a class. When we have read and enjoyed them we’ll return them and borrow some more!

Catford Library is a fantastic resource for our community, please visit with your child if you wish to borrow some books and spend some time there 😊

Bella found a chapter book by one of our focus authors – Tom Percival!

Red Class at Dragon School!

Congratulations Dragons! What a busy day we’ve had at Dragon school.

In the Morning, we made fire and ice sandwiches (cream cheese or jam).

In the afternoon, we went to Dragon school.

We have made our own books on how to be a dragon so we are experts.

The first lesson was flying!

Lesson two was roaring!

Lesson three was blowing fire.

Watch out, it’s hot!!

Lesson four was capturing a royal.

Lesson five was fighting a knight.

All the way through Dragon School, the Headmistress was watching us!

We asked her questions and she blew smoke to let us know what she thought! At the end we asked her if we had all passed Dragon School and she blew loads of smoke to let us know we were fully qualified dragons! Well done Red Class!

Dragon school is hard work, so when we were finished we had our dragon picnic.

Finally, it was time for graduation, well done dragons!
