*Learner of the Week W/C 22.02.21*
Our Learner of the Week this week was awarded to Rufus for carefully thinking about the design of his brilliant Tudor house. Well done Rufus!
We have had another busy week in Class One this week! We all worked really hard with our assessments and had fun learning more about our topic.
Last week, we discussed what materials Tudor houses were made from and what they looked like and designed pictures of own Tudor houses.
This week, we took this a step further and made our very own 3D Tudor houses. We worked as a team, sharing the equipment and thought very carefully about the placement of our windows, doors and wooden beams. Here is a quick sneak peak of our houses… They are amazing!
On Monday 29th March, we will be having a ‘Great Fire of London Day’ which will include a re-enactment of the events which unfolded in September of 1666, writing with quills (just like Samuel Pepys) and looking at artefacts left behind from the fire.
In art, we enjoyed using oil pastels to complete observational drawings of daffodils and finishing half-and-half pictures of flowers, practically exploring the concept of symmetry.
In RE, we have enjoyed learning about the special Easter Story and the events leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection. We discussed the emotions that we felt at different parts of the story and selected colours to represent these feelings and displayed them in the shape of a cross to remind us about the true meaning of Easter.
During golden time, some of us chose to decorate Easter eggs and enjoyed cutting, sticking and drawing Easter items onto our designs. They looked ‘eggcellent’!
As Easter approaches and as we head into the last week of the Spring term, here is a sneaky peak of one of our morning challenges next week.
