Acorn and Catkin children recently enjoyed a day out to Skipton to travel down the Leeds – Liverpool canal on a barge. After looking at transport and boats in school, it was the perfect trip!
After a short minibus journey to Skipton, we boarded the barge and went for an hour long trip down the canal. We saw different animals living on the canal, including a beautiful swan and her signets. We then travelled to Roberts Park where we enjoyed a picnic and spent some time exploring the wonderful park there. Catkin had so much fun in the sunshine, and thankfully the rain didn’t stop Acorn children enjoying some time on the barge!
Yesterday year 4 went to Harlow Carr Gardens in Harrogate as part of our Pollination and Environment topic.
We had the oppotunity to explore the gardens which were beautiful and we were able to do some sketching towards our art unit.
We also completed a workshop about pollination in which we learnt about the different parts of a flower. We were then able to go out into the gardens and look for these parts. We also spotted wasps pollinating!
We had a fantastic day and learnt a lot!
After taking inspiration from some of the work of Bradford born artist David Hockney, Year 3 have been using the technique of photo layering to create abstract portraits of their classmates.
They had to take lots of different photographs of each other, from different distances and of different parts of the body, in order to get all the images they needed to create a full portrait. Once this was done, they had to become editors and choose which photos they wanted to use before they were printed, as they were only allowed to use 12, and some of them had taken over 40!
The final step was to layer them on the paper in the most effective order. This took real teamwork as they had to take into account everyone’s different creative opinions, but they eventually managed to create the portraits.
Mr Sadler and Miss Lang were so impressed; the children were incredibly proud of what they had created too.
Reception started their PE lessons just after Christmas and are working super hard so far. This half term we have been doing gymnastics.
The children are enjoying taking risks, trying new things and improving on what they could do the week before!
Take a look at the pictures to see our gymnastics fun…
