Curriculum Map Summer 2022

Open Morning - tasting food to make healthy sandwiches!

Under The Sea layered paintings - layer 1, the watercolour wash

We walked from school, all the way to the top of Castle Hill! Orange Class walked brilliantly with no complaints at all.

Once we got to the top, we found the school and talked about the places that we had passed along the way. We then worked in pairs to draw maps of the route from school to Castle Hill.
Soon, in class, we will use the maps that we drew on the hill to draw finished versions of a map of our local area. 

This is all part of our local study learning in Geography and lots of fun!

We have started painting cityscapes based on the art of Dutch artist, Ton Schulten. Ton uses basic shapes and bright colours in his work, so we are doing the same! This helps us learn to colour mix...

A Visit From A Real Nurse!

Orange Class were so lucky on Friday 28th January because we had a visit from a real nurse! Renata Mrrzyglod, who is Max's mum, came to speak to the children about her job as a nurse. She brought equipment with her and talked about her job, what she does everyday and how she helps people. Renata talked passionately about how much she loves her job and how much she loves to help people feel better. Thank you Renata! Orange Class learned so much from you!
