Visiting St George’s Church

By Anne-Marie Fleming on Oct 01, 2021 04:14 pm

On Friday afternoon, Class 3 visited St George’s Church. As part of our RE curriculum we are learning about the features of Church of England churches and cathedrals and this gave us the perfect opportunity to visit our local Church for the first time in nearly 2 years!

The children were given a layout of a Church of England church and asks to see if they could find all the features of it in our church. They really enjoyed the experience and commented that they had now noticed more features that they hadn’t before, such as, the font, the nave and the sanctuary.

Two children were very excited to see their family name in several areas of the church and have been tasked with finding out more about them and their significance to the local parish.



Women’s Role in WW2

By Anne-Marie Fleming on Oct 01, 2021 03:54 pm

On Wednesday Mrs Holder gave us a fabulous talk about the role of women during World War 2. She brought in a number of artefacts and books to help explain the role. She answered our questions and helped us understand the significant role women played during WW2. The lives of women were revolutionised after the war and empowered women to take an active role in the workplace.

We learnt also about rationing, made Carrot cookies, sang songs and danced the ‘Lambert Walk’.

A big thank you to Mrs Holder for a thoroughly enjoyable and informative afternoon!



Maps of Clun

By Mrs Manning on Sep 30, 2021 10:59 pm

Last Friday Class One went for a walk around Clun to learn about the locality of our school. The children were in groups of 4 and had their photo taken at 9 landmarks. This week the children were set the task of creating their own map of Clun by positioning the landmarks on their maps in the correct location, sequencing our walk.

Thank you to our two family helpers, John & Tanya, as we wouldn’t have been able to complete our walk safely without your time.

Happy and sad portraits

By Mrs Lampitt on Sep 30, 2021 12:38 pm

Inspired by the artist Pablo Picasso, the children created happy and sad portraits. They were challenged to use hot or cold colours to represent the different feelings and experimented with a variety of materials, including paint, chalks, oil pastels and crayons.

 



Egyptian Instruments

By Admin on Sep 25, 2021 12:45 pm

Class 2 have been making their own version of Egyptian instruments. They used materials which could be found at home! They used things like sticks, cardboard boxes, elastic bands, bottles…anything which would make a noise!



You & Me

By Mrs Manning on Sep 25, 2021 12:29 pm

Nursery have continued exploring their You & Me topic by thinking about themselves and where they live.

They looked very carefully in a mirror to draw their portraits.

Then then thought about their home and who lived with, including their pets.
