Welcome to Class 3
We are looking forward to sharing all of our hard work and special events here on our class page. Mrs Roe, Mrs Latham and Miss Parfitt are always on the lookout for children who are trying their best and joining in with our learning.
We have worked together to make our class display with our class jigsaw and our individual children pictures. We have also created a class paper chain with information about what we like to do and what our favourite things are.
We have made individual poppies to remember Armistice Day and then put them together to make a class wreath.
Talk for writing - The Three Billy Goats Gruff
We have been practising our story this week. We have made actions to retell and drawn a story map to help us to remember the story.
We have changed the characters. Can you see what we have changed them to?
Look at our new actions to our new story, The Two Pigs.
Look at this wonderful writing that one of our year 1 children has completed about our new story independently. Amazing!
Florence Nightingale - ‘History Makers’
To begin our new topic we had a look at our own timeline of our lives so far. We collected photographs of different stages and important events and put them in order.
We then created a class timeline with photographs of us at key moments. Look how great it looks to see the growth in the children from when they were born.
ART - Andy Goldsworthy
This half term we are focussing on the land artist and sculptor Andy Goldsworthy. He uses natural materials to create his art and takes photographs of it when he has finished it.
We found out that he uses circles (with a black hole), spirals, zig zags, wavy or straight lines in his art so we copied them with different materials.
We have used leaves, berries, flowers, pebbles, shells, slate, sticks and shells to recreate our pictures in the style of Andy Goldsworthy.
