We have been budding digital artists in our class. Amelia and Josh have been trying to create works of art in the style of Andy Warhol. They took digital images of themselves and painted them using an iPad app. The result is some fantastic Pop Art.
Amelie is a really expressive dancer. She produced a fantastic dance in our PE lesson this week. She moved with grace and was thoughtful with her creative movements.
We have been exploring materials this week. the children were given a group of different materials. they then had to think of what categories they might be sorted into. After some discussion, the children sorted the into their material groups. They did a fantastic job.
We have been cooking this week and it’s been fun. We have made our own pitta bread pizzas. The children learned about hygiene and food preparation skills. They also learned safe cutting techniques. Perfect pizzas, people!
Watch out, Stan Lee! We have some budding comic artists in Nightingale Class. Theo, George and Lilou have though hard about their stories and characters. “Fireboy” (Theo), “Wind-Whip” (George) and “Wonder Woman” (Lilou) are fantastic comics. Well done.
We have been learning about balls skills in PE this term by being little squirrels collecting our precious nuts for the winter, but those nuts seem to have a mind of their own! The children have been honing their control skills moving their nuts along twisted branch paths trying to guide them safely home.
Thank you to all the parents who came to Nightingale’s open afternoon today. It was so lovely to see so many parents here. If you were not able to make it, I have included the Power Point of the session below.
Welcome to Nightingale Class Open Afternoon
We have had a great week of learning. The children have settled in really well and I am so proud of all of them. The Head Teacher Awards this week go to Judah. He has been such a helpful boy this week. He sits ready to learn, he answers questions thoughtfully on the carpet and he offers to help where he can. He is a fantastic member of our class.
Tia and Finley also get an award this week. These two are fantastic mathematicians. Both offer great answers in our carpet discussions, but they are also mastering the art of setting their work out neatly as you can see below. Well done you two.
We are looking at superheroes this term. Please have a look at our topic web below. Just to remind you that there is a Nightingale Open Afternoon on Tuesday 18th September at 2.45-3.15. I will be going over some of the routines and things that we will be covering this year. Please come along.
