During Art/Design week, we looked at the work of Lowry (he died when Mrs Hall was a little girl). We noticed that he liked to paint factories and he used a lot of dark colours.
We used his work to inspire our own Lowry pictures!

Chocolate reindeers

Yum yum yummy yum!!!

We have been making chocolate reindeers using marshmallows, chocolate, almond paste, silver balls and pretzels...

Progress so far....

Antlers to follow!!

Inspired by Christmas

The girls have been using the box of Christmas materials in the writing area to make their own Christmas decorations.

The Numberjacks are ...........in 1H!!

These boys have loved making their very own set of Numberjacks which they propose we can keep for use in Golden Time!

This week is Maths Week in Primary.

The focus is Data Handling.

Here are some of the things we have been looking at:

*how many people have a birthday in the different months

*how we can sort balls of different colours and sizes

We have also been 'interpreting' information.

Today, we sorted ourselves according to different criteria. 

We used things like boys & girls

 eye colour (green, blue, brown)

brothers & sisters (everyone had at least 1)

hair colour (dark, light, red)

Bob the Builder, can we fix it?
Yr1H can!!

'Mrs Hall. Mrs Hall. The cupboard is broken. Can we fix it?'

And this is exactly what the children tried to do!!

This self-chosen activity kept the children engaged and interested, working together for quite some time. There was team work, problem-solving, discussion, modelling and improvisation. The children used pencils, glue pots, masking tape and a metre rule to try to fix the cupboard!
Unfortunately, their efforts were to no avail as the cupboard remains broken. Such fun trying though!!
