5C Tennis

5C began their tennis coaching sessions on Thursday, during which they learnt movement and agility drills both with and without the ball. We had a fantastic first session and are looking forward to learning more new skills every Thursday afternoon, for the remainder of the term.

Crofton Roman Villa

Year 5 were transported back in time (and to Orpington) yesterday to spend the day as archaeologists at a real-life excavation of a Roman Villa. The classes were able to find out about the discovery of the site and explore what remains of what was once a farmhouse. They also had the opportunity to create mosaics, sketch genuine artifacts from the site, try brass-rubbing and dress in Roman clothes.

The Gingerbread Man – Nursery

Nursery have been learning the story of The Gingerbread Man. We decided to bake some gingerbread men of our own.

Art in 3C

We looked very closely…
We used chalk and charcoal.
We chose a plant or flower that took our fancy.
We looked again and again to check.
We looked at the shapes, lines, shade and texture.
We decided how to use the chalk and charcoal to get the shade we wanted.
We looked closely at the shapes of the leaves.
The plants were all very different.
The flowers were very different too.
We started with a white chalk outline and built up the shades.
