3L – We made a Clay Tile of a Victorian House

Finally, we added the detail of the brickwork and the roof tiles. We used clay tiles to create the different textures.

Our tiles are now ready to be fired in a kiln.

Me and Mister P

We have finished our ‘class read’. We are very sad to say goodbye to Mister P. If you would like to read more in this series, you are in luck. There are more to buy or borrow from the library!

If you would like to find out what happens to Mr P, there are more adventures to enjoy!


6L Art – Dare you stare into the eyes of Medusa?

This term we will create our version of Carravagio’s famous painting of Medusa. Carravagio used studies of his face to create his Medusa and we have been studying our faces in preparation. We discussed the emotions conveyed in the famous art work – sorrow, fear, shock, rage. We then used charcoal and chalk to capture only our eyes when we expressed these emotions. The results speak for themselves and we think we’ve achieved what we set out to do. Next week, we will concentrate on expressing emotion with our mouths.

Our week in Nursery

This week we have been busy building relationships with each other and getting to know the daily routines.

Here are some pictures of some of the fun we have had!

We have been reading the book ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?

We have been talking about different colours and sorting them.

Can your child sort things at home? They could help sort the laundry into different colours or sort beads/buttons by colour or shapes.

What colours can you see on your walk to nursery?

Please send any pictures of anything exciting you have been doing at home; we would love to see them! nursery@holbeach.lewisham.sch.uk

Year 1 Home Learning

In Year 1 we have been thinking about our new topic ‘Paws, Claws and Roars’.

This week we read the story ‘Dinosaur Roar’. Tell an adult at home what you liked about this story. You can use the link below to watch the story again.

In this book you will find lots of opposites and rhymes. For your home learning this week think of as many opposites/rhymes that you can.

You can record them by drawing a picture, writing a sentence or sharing them with someone at home.

Also have a go at logging into my maths and numbots.

Red Class Summer Party

We had so much fun at our party today! In the morning, we made hats, look how fancy we are.

We started our party with a cooling ice lolly and a film.

Then, we played the chocolate game. We had to wiggle our faces to move the chocolate down to our mouths. No hands! We had quite sticky faces.

After that, we played musical statues.

Then, we had some party food, yum!

We finished with a game of Simon Says. Thank you for being such fantastic party people Red Class!
