3s have been looking at flowers in detail over the last few weeks. We have used a range of materials to recreate our observations including pencils, water colours, pastels and paint. Here are some of our finished paintings which focus on different parts of the flowers.
Yesterday afternoon 3S entered the classroom and it was very different. Ms. Simpson was mean, they had to curtsy or bow when their names were called and they were not allowed to ask questions or raise their hands! 3S had gone back in time to 1868 to experience what a typical school day would be like in Victorian times. They didn’t like being Victorian children much (apparently the learning was very boring!) but they did learn and recite the wonderful poem How Doth the Little Crocodile by C.S. Lewis in unison! Have a look by following the link below!
3S have learned how to make stop motion animations in ICT. We used a program online called Cloud Stop Motion. The program is really simple to use and the children are almost professionals. If you can, create an account and practise at home. It’s FREE! Here Are some of the videos we made last week.
As part of our topic learning, 3S have been researching a variety of historical figures from the Victorian period. Last week, we learned all about Mary Seacole who was a Jamaican British nurse who set up the British Hotel (a hospital) behind the lines during the Crimean War. We admired her perseverance and dedication to do what she loved which was to help and heal others.
Here are some of the posters we made to celebrate her achievements:
