Materials for Art

As part of our project in Art, we are aiming to create individual carnival costumes! For this, we are kindly asking for parents and carers to send their children into school with some/any of the following:

  • Fabric (of any kind)
  • Cardboard
  • Buttons
  • Stickers
  • Gems
  • Feathers

These are just some examples of what your child can use to decorate their costume; if they are keen to bring in anything else, then, of course, that’s fine! We will also have resources for the children to use, but if this can be ‘topped up’ with whatever you can bring, that would be great.

We have our Art lessons next Thursday and Friday; if all materials could be brought in by Tuesday 22nd at the latest, that would be fab!

Thank you. We are really looking forward to seeing what the children produce next week!

Stay safe,

The Year 1 Team

Friday!

Hello Parents and Carers of Year 1, we all hope you had an enjoyable half term and the children (and you) got some well-deserved rest!

Today, we revealed to the children that our project this half (final) half term will be all about carnivals. We will be exploring different celebrations around the world and their culture as well as the diversity around our school.

With this in mind, we’d love for the children to dress up in a way which expresses themselves this Friday 11th June – they can be as creative as they like!

We cannot wait 🙂

Thank you,

The Year 1 Team

Environmental Champions

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well!

Peridot Class have been very busy this half term, learning about different ways to keep our environment clean.

Using recyclable materials from our daily use, we made some pretty amazing musical instruments.

In Art, we have used wool, paper and card to create colourful weaving patterns.

It has been another fantastic half term, well done everybody!

Emerald Class – We Love Learning

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well.

This half term, we have been very busy in school and at home. Our project in year 1 was to become environmental champions. It all started with some special visitors, who left rubbish and some amazing findings in our classroom (Dinosaurs And All That Rubbish).

We have thought about different ways of looking after our environment and taking responsibility for our actions. We have used junk modelling to create instruments. In art, we have used wool and card to create our own art pieces using weaving.

Have a look at our learning!

What is that noise?
Who has been in our class?
Our Weaving!
We have created videos of our weaving! It was great being the reporter!
We used paper
We can use lots of colours. These are my favourite colours!
We used card
We all worked hard on our weaving!
Great job!
Look at what I have made!

This is only some of the lovely work we have produced. Next term, we will learn about the Notting Hill Carnival.

Summer Term!

Hello Parents and Carers of Jade Class,

I just wanted to check in with you all and share how brilliantly the children have done so far this term; I cannot believe we have already completed 4 weeks already, and, in only 2, we will be pausing for what will be another well-deserved half-term break.

Here are some pictures of Jade Class (and a bald badger called Pete) in action. I’d love for you to sit with them while going through these pictures and ask them about what is happening. I’d also love for them (with your help) to reply with what they have enjoyed so far this term.

I hope you all enjoy these pictures :

Best wishes and stay safe,

Mr L
