Keith Haring Art

 

Owl class have been studying Keith Haring's art. We have been discovering how he shows the human body in motion. We took advantage of the sun one morning to get outside and draw around our shadows to help us sketch realistic poses. We took photographs of ourselves in motion and found out how hard it is to capture everyone jumping at the same time.We will use these pictures to study how our bodies look when they are moving and to help us create pieces of art.

Science Investigations in Owl Class

 

As part of our investigative work in Science, we have been learning about light: how it travels, how we see and how mirrors work. We made human models using string as our rays of light.

Just William Stories

 

Owl Class have been reading Just William stories as part of their Literacy work this week. Here we are performing in the school playground to Squirrel Class. We read one of the 'Just William' stories ('William joins the Band of Hope') and rewrote it as a play script. We have been rehearsing different scenes, and put it all together for a final performance in the sunshine.

In science, we found out how much sugar we should be eating every day - less than we realised! We then measured portions of breakfast cereals and drinks and calculated how much sugar was in them. This tiny portion of cereal has the equivalent of two cubes of sugar in it. Afterwards we measured out how much breakfast cereal we might actually eat and calculated the sugar content of that, which was sometimes more than the recommended daily amount for children of our age!

 

 

Some of the girls in Owl class played in a football tournament against local schools. This was their first game as a team. They played brilliantly together and really enjoyed the afternoon.

 

 

 

Parents speak very positively about our school's close feeling of community: 'The School is like an extended family, all pupils feel a tremendous sense of belonging'. Pupils make good progress in all subjects. Pupils are well prepared for the next stage of their education. Many pupils make exceptionally rapid progress. There are strong relationships in early years, and children develop positive attitudes to learning based on the care, guidance and support they recieve from staff. Pupils sometimes exceed the expected standards for their age - Ofsted 2017
