My class love our blog and two children in Nightingale Class have been so inspired that they have gone home and created blogs of their own. Edward’s blog is about his cat and Olive’s blog is a place where she is sharing her gymnastic skills. I love these children’s enthusiasm for learning. Well done bloggers!
We have been lucky enough to be given some money from Mr Howe, Mrs Howe’s husband to buy some books for our class. Mrs Howe was a teacher in our school who passed away a few years ago. She used to teach in Nightingale Class and she loved reading.
I went to Harry’s bookshop in Oldfield Park this weekend and bought some new books for our class. I hope the children love reading them. This is a fantastic gift for our class and we know that Mrs Howe would have loved to see the children reading these new books.
Our class have been so inspired by our trip to Bath Children’s Literary Festival last week that we had a go at making some of our own poems in the style of Joseph Coelho. Zac and Freddie caught the essence of the ‘school dinner’ poem perfectly and produce some brilliant results.
We had a fantastic time on Monday 1st October. We went on a coach into town and spent a lovely hour in the company of poet and children’s book writer, Joseph Coelho. He told us some funny poems and read his wonderful book, Luna loves library day. It was a great talk and some of the children were able to help. Sonny was great at being the Troll King on stage!
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.
