Sharing our Home Learning

Thank you to everyone that supported the children and encouraged them with their home learning this term. We had some brilliant pieces of work hared with us. Fantastic artwork, animal fact files, recipes for cooking and even instructions to make snail wine!

Trip to Summerfield Woods

Today we visited the Bohemia walled garden to dig up leeks, that the school have grown. We also planted some daffodils and look forward to caring for them and seeing them grow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whilst at the gardens we also walked around the woods on a leaf hunt. The leaves the children found they then rubbed over to see the different patterns. Also the sculptor we are studying is Andy Goldsworthy, therefore we tried to create our own versions of his work out of leaves and twigs.

 

We are hoping to make leek and potato soup next week with what we picked today!

 

Down Syndrome Awareness Day

On March 21st Jade celebrated Down Syndrome Awareness day by wearing odd socks. We also held a cake sale at break time to raise any money we could. We were overwhelmed with the amounts of cakes and donations from you all! Thank you so much to you all . You helped us raise £102.82 for Down’s Syndrome Association! We have received our thank you letter and certificate to share with you all.

 

3ZJ trip to the Jerwood Gallery.

Last week we visited the Jerwood Gallery as part of the ‘Pearls of the Sea’ project, guided by artist Ed Boxall. Inspiration has come from nonsense poetry such as that of Edward Lear. Within the environment of the galleries, surrounded by the latest exhibitions from Quentin Blake (illustrator) and John Carter (sculptor) as well as the Jerwood collection, the children created and collected nonsense vocabulary. After this they created lines of poetry which will eventually be made into a collaborative poem and book. Every child was creative and engaged with the process. Their imagination flew and great poetry was made! The class are very excited for Ed to visit in class this morning!

Finally, I would personally like to thank every parent and staff member who came along for the trip we could not have done it without you (especially after my ankle injury). The children were fantastic and I am immensely proud of them for representing the school so beautifully.

Amethyst go to the Jerwood!

Today – 9th May 2019 – we visited the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings as part of the ‘Pearls of the Sea’ project, guided by artist Ed Boxall. Inspiration has come from nonsense poetry such as that of Edward Lear. Within the environment of the galleries, surrounded by the latest exhibitions from Quentin Blake (illustrator) and John Carter (sculptor) as well as the Jerwood collection, the children created and collected nonsense vocabulary. After this they created lines of poetry which will eventually be made into a collaborative poem and book. Every child was creative and engaged with the process. Their imagination flew and great poetry was made! We would just like to take this opportunity to thank Ed and the staff at Jerwood gallery for making this happen and we are all looking forward to the forthcoming exhibition where their work will be on display to the public alongside other schools taking part. And Amethyst you are fabulous!

Acting out the movements of the Earth

Today, Ruby class have looked at the movements of the Earth. They have learned what the terms rotation and revolution mean and acted this out in pairs. This is Deeva acting as the sun and Joel as the Earth rotating and revolving.

Then they presented to their tables using a diagram model of the Sun, Earth and Moon to help explain the facts.
