World Book Day 11th March 2020

 

As part of World Book Day, we read Tell me a Dragon by Jackie Morris. We were inspired to  create our own dragon landscapes and dragons using oil pastels and sketching techniques.

 

We also wrote dragon poems and tried to include figurative language like simile,metaphor and alliteration.

 

In the afternoon there was a Story Swap with Class 1-2 and some children went to read stories with Day Care.

Altogether an exciting and busy week!

Art on the Eco Bus Feb 2020

First we went on the Gypsy Moth Nature Trail, so we could collect and photograph ideas for our art sketches. We then got onto the bus and carefully sketched our favourite images using a range of special sketching pencils. Some of us even got to sit on the top deck!

Enjoying time on our Eco Bus!

Internet Safety Feb 2020

Today we learnt about how to keep ourselves safe on the internet. We played games on a website called Interland.

There were different games you could play and each one taught you something different about Internet Safety.

Joy Of Reading at the University of Hertfordshire

23rd October 2019

 

Today we went to the University to meet an author called Christopher Edge.

He told us how he got his inspiration to write from ordinary things! For example, 

one of his books was inspired by the fact that a banana gives off small amounts

of radiation-This led to him writing Albie Bright! Another of his books was inspired by

 the astronaut, Tim Peake. We even learnt how to decipher a pig-pen cipher!

Amwell Nature Reserve 19th June 2019

We had a fantastic time at Amwell Nature Reserve today! We learnt that this site used to be an old quarry but now it is a fantastic place for wildlife. We went into a large wooden 'hide' and used binoculars to look at all sorts of birds across the huge lake. We even tried to identify some using the charts on the wall. We saw cormorants, black-headed seagulls and coots to name a few. We also saw a family of Canada geese with their little chick!

BMX Workshop with Mike Mullen

6-6-19

Mike Mullen (3 x UK Pro BMX halfpipe champion ) came to school today to run workshops for us.

In assembly he told us about how he first got involved in BMX, after he saw some on TV. As his skills improved his confidence grew (growth mindset). He showed us his skills, jumping over 6 members of staff on the playground! Then it was our turn to have a go! We were all challenged outside our comfort zone and it was great fun learning to do tricks on the bikes! We learnt to say...'I can' instead of 'I can't.
