22nd-26th February 2021

The boys and girls in the Middle Room had another brilliant and final week of their distance learning. There were two birthdays celebrated this week Rhían was 9 and Chris was 8. A BIG Happy Birthday boys!!

The children got to make their name from their favourite things for our STEM project making sure it was the same length as themselves. They had lots of stories telling why and how they used what they did to make their name.

Some children decorated potatoes for creative art. Have a look at the creations below. On mindful Monday the children drew circles and thought of the different ways that circles show around us. Have a look what some of the boys and girls thought of.

There was lots of sight seeing and nature walks around the local beaches, trails and forests during the week with lots of signs of spring around including the longer evenings and the daffodils growing.

Everyone had a brilliant time on the MFitness whole school Zoom workout this afternoon. Well done to all.

We are all really excited about going back to school on Monday to see friends and learn from the classroom again.

See you all on Monday.

Middle Room Christmas Creations ☃🎁

There was great excitement making Gingerbread Houses. We had the BEST FUN making these. We used icing sugar mix, biscuits and jellies to make them. They looked so good we had to have a biscuit when they were made! Some amazing creations were made. What wonderful creators in our classroom some children even added a biscuit chimney and a chocolate door. YUMMM!😋

We made some winter displays with houses as we are learning about houses and homes in Geography. We created some penguins waddling into winter art and what wonderful penguins they are. There was lots of fun had.

Art – Clay – Junior Room

This past fortnight we have been exploring the use of clay. After discussing how it feels and the many things we can do with it such as pinching, pulling, throwing, twisting….we moulded our little pinch pots. We discussed and predicted what might happen to the clay pots when left on the radiator over night. Some little scientists predicted that the clay material would change colour and become solid. Some of the children made connections with our Maths topic ‘weight’ and predicted that the pinch pots would be lighter when dry.  How very clever! Each child decorated their own pinch pot as they wished and we discovered in the end that the pinch pots were just like us. Unique and special!
