Monet, Monet, Monet…

Hello – or should that be Bonjour?!

Our topic on Monet was so interesting- we learned some French language and really immersed ourselves in the water colour art work. Our gallery was very pretty.

The role play was Monet’s studio, complete with garden, shutters, paints and a place for ‘dejeuner’.

The children were only allowed in when the sign was around the right way.

Art Week Canvas

Hello!

For Art Week, the entire school was given the topic of Creation, and Seal Class looked at People within this topic.

Mrs Rix chose the medium of Collage for us to work on, so we used different papers and ripping techniques to experiment.

We moved into different classes to use other art mediums, such as paint and printing, which was really fun. We also went outside to create our own natural faces.

Returning to the classroom for the last two days meant that we could now really focus on how we wanted our collage and the final canvas to look. We used lots of glue and the room was filled with torn paper.

Our end result was a beautiful canvas full of wonderful faces.

1960s Space Race Aces!

Hello!

This was our 1960s topic – where we started with a timeline and then went on to discover what an amazing time in history this was. We particularly enjoyed learning about Martin Luther-King and we thought of what our dreams for the world would be.

We had an ICT lesson to find out some amazing 1960s facts and were able to sort them into date order when we all worked together.

We really loved to hear about space and the Apollo 11 trip to the moon – so much that we decided our role play area should be about flying to the moon! In our literacy work, we wrote of aliens.

We studied the artist Roy Lichtenstein and used his techniques with Ben Day dots to create our own portraits. We were only able to use a limited range of colours, which meant that our display was very bright!

Book Talk 2016

Hello!

Seal Class really enjoy to read, so when Book Talk was introduced as a new lesson in 2016, they absolutely loved it!

For half an hour every day, a few pages were read and discussed by the class – looking at vocabulary, what was liked and disliked, questioning what had happened and what was going to happen. The children were all encouraged to have their opinions and to share ideas with the whole class.

We looked at fiction and non-fiction books, and these were just three of the books we enjoyed;

Esio Trot, Don’t Forget Tiggs and Mango and Bambang

Carry on reading, Seals!

March Maths and the 3D Challenge!

Hello!

Our class always enjoy a practical maths lesson, so using lolly sticks and masking tape meant that we learned more about 3D shapes and properties.

Some shapes were easier to make than others, but fortunately no one got stuck to their shape!

Well done, Seals.

Roald Dahl – World Book Day

Hello!

March arrived, and along with it World Book Day. To celebrate the 100th birthday of Roald Dahl, the children were asked to dress as his book characters.

Roald Dahl blog  Author, Roald Dahl

 

We had been reading Esio Trot in BookTalk so everyone was very excited to be dressed up on the day.

Titanic Topic

Hello!

Here is a look back at our Titanic topic, which Seal Class really enjoyed working on…

First, we look at artefacts from the Titanic and had the opportunity to try on some fancy headwear! We used these photographs to create Titanic Portraits using charcoal. It was very messy!

For science, we investigated how to make a ship that would float using materials in the classroom and some creative junk modelling. Some ideas were better than others, and we thought hard about how we would improve on our models if we made them again.

We also looked at the art work of Joseph Turner and used his techniques to great effect when using water colours on our own Titanic paintings. At the parents evening, some people thought Miss Prouten had painted them all – they were SO good! (Here is the proof that she DIDN’T!)

The children enjoyed sharing them so much.

Seal Class 2015 to 2016

 

Hello to you all!

We have had such a busy year this year, that we have had no time to blog! So to make up for this, we decided that we would give you a lovely look back at all the things your children have done in this year. They have grown so much in size and confidence, and are completely ready for starting Year 3 in September.

We wish them luck as they move into KS2 – we will miss them!

Let’s start with Forest School, which all the children enjoy, regardless of the weather!

Soup!

Today was our last forest school session.

We had a fire and had soup and bread, it was delicious!

Thank you Mr Myall for coming to help!

On the way back we gave the leftover bread to the ducks and chickens!

We have loved Forest School this year!
