Eid in Lower Foundation
Thank you so much to Amaarah and her mummy for coming in to tell us all about Eid and how they celebrate it.
We listened to lovely stories and saw lovely visuals to help us really link all we had heard and understand one of the most celebrated Muslim festival. It was very informative and the visuals were great. Thank you for the dates; did you know it is recommended for Muslims to break their fast with a date?
This week we have been talking about The Three Billy Goats Gruff. This week we have been re-writing the story. In relation to our topic, we have been looking at various environments – valleys, mountains and grassy fields. We have also been designing bridges and relating this to Maths by problem-solving to see how to make the strongest bridge.
We have celebrated Eid in class and had a look at the different ways in which this wonderful festival is celebrated. Eid Mubarak!
Using the iPads in Year 1
This week we have been using iPads. Year 1 have really enjoyed learning how to type and create pictures using this new tool. They came up with some super ideas to create and share with their peers. 1AW were very confident at using the 'smiley faces' too!
Living in London
A big thank you to 1AR for their assembly this morning on Living in London. They told us about lots of tips on how we can help save our environment in London, as well as why they all love London so much!
Before setting off for Hooke Court, 4JM were busy on Monday translating their Bridget Riley inspired designs onto clay coil pots. There was much concentration in the art studio as the class considered not only the complimentary colours they would use, but also the extreme focus on fine motor skills to enable them to accurately replicate the designs.
4AW will be completing their work when they get back, just in time for Father's Day.
'The Big Bling Frame'
Lucas and William have been exploring the art work of Julie Mehretu, the Year 5 assigned artist for this term.
