Week beginning October 11th. This week for Walk to School month, we had a 'Be Bright, Be Seen' day where we wore our brightest clothes.
In R.E. we said a prayer using actions.
We got very messy in Art when we made boats out of clay!
We are learning about our senses in Science.
We had great fun guessing what we could taste...
...what we could smell...
...and what we could feel!
In Forest School we started by collecting the right sized sticks for lighting the fire.
We toasted marshmallows over the fire...
...then we enjoyed eating s'mores!
We used peelers to whittle sticks...
...then we added faces, fabric clothes and leaf hair to our stick to create a Forest Friend.
We were very proud of our Forest Friends!
Sometimes it's important just to take time and relax in nature.
At the end of our Forest School session we made sure we put the fire out properly with plenty of water.
We celebrated Black History Month on Friday. Class 1 learned about Mary Seacole.
Mary Seacole wanted to help the sick and wounded when she was alive in the 1800s.
Mary Seacole used to make remedies to help sick people. We had a go at making our own remedy with honey, lemon and water.
We looked at some of the ingredients that Mary Seacole used to use.
We also learned about an artist called Alma Woodsey Thomas.
Alma Woodsey Thomas was the first African American woman to have a solo exhibition in New York's Whitney Museum of American Art.
We were inspired to recreate her abstract art using natural materials.
