Happy New Year from Miss P

Home » News » Happy New Year from Miss P

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a happy New Year!

For the New Year, and new term, we are starting a new topic. . . .Robin of Sherwood. We will be traveling back in time to the Middle Ages, joining Robin Hood and his Merry Men on their adventures to defeat the Sheriff of Nottingham. Robin of Sherwoord is a beautifully written book by the very talented Michael Morpurgo, and within its pages there are innumerable opportunities for learning that span across the curriculum. Please read the Holistic Plan (which can be found on the class page) to find out about all the exciting things we will be doing during the Spring Term.

Even though we have only been back three days, we have already immersed ourselves in the story and jumped head first into our new learning. On Wednesday, we started our Big Art project which is all focused around trees. We began by learning about cross hatching and how the lines we draw can be used to show movement. This helped us during our observational drawing session where we had to capture the ridges, wrinkles and rumples of bark. We followed this up by venturing outside to take rubbings of bark using oil pastels — the results were excellent. On Wednesday afternoon, we began to create our mixed media piece of art work. To recreate the lumps and bumps of the bark, we used masking tap and string to give our work a 3D texture, applying the masking tape was fun if not a little challenging.

On Thursday, we ventured back outside for some outdoor maths. The aim of this lesson was to try and establish how old the trees on our school field are. It was surprising how many skills we needed to achieve this. We needed to know how to measure accurately, we needed to know what units of measure we could use and we definitely needed to use team work! We also continued our Big Art and also learnt about weaving.

On Friday, we investigated what patterns we could find when we double and halve numbers. We continued with our weaving and completed our Big Art.
