Picture This

All the children have been working on art work for this years theme for ‘Picture This’  based around the artwork of Children’s Games by Pieter Bruegel.

Flemish painter, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, painted “Children’s Games” in 1560. The painting provides a window into amusements and recreations in the past in its detailed depiction of some 200 children engaged in nearly eighty different games and play activities.

The children used this picture as a stimulus to produce their own pieces of art work depicting children’s games.

Some of the children’s work has been chosen to go to the ‘Picture This’ Exhibition which is taking place at Magna.

Year Two Scarborough

On Tuesday, Class 2 visited Scarborough to learn about sea creatures and coastal features. We began by creating beach art to demonstrate how tides are made and then had a picnic on the beach.  After that we went rock pooling, collected shells and even managed to catch some crabs! At the end of the day we had more fun playing in the sand. It was a fantastic trip and we all had a great day!

Reading Certificates May 2017

Congratulations to the following children for receiving their reading certificates for reading three or more times a week this half term. The biggest gift you can give your children is to get them reading and praise them when they choose to do so without being asked. If children are motivated to do something on their own they will do so much better in the long run. We thank you for all the help and support you give your children with Reading.

Maternity Cover

Mrs E Jessop, the Year Three teacher will be going on maternity leave in June.

From the 6th June the Year Three class will be taught by Ms Roddis full time and Year One will be taught by Mrs Malin full time.

 

Year 6 had a fantastic time on their residential visit to Crowden Outdoor Activity Centre.  

Their daring activities included: kayaking, abseiling, zip wire and crate stack.  After their exciting  challenges they had delicious, home-cooked meals and then had time to relax with friends. All pupils and staff  thoroughly enjoyed the trip and highly recommend  the visit to  the current Year 5  children!
