Living and Learning: I can see things from other people’s point of view.

Posted on Friday 14 June 2019 by

This week we had a class discussion about our living and learning statement. We all agreed that this is a very difficult thing to do sometimes. Harley suggested that it can be easier to think about other people’s reasons for doing things if we step back and think for a while. Mia shared that “if we talk about it with that person then we might be able to understand”. As a class, we understood the importance of being able to respect other people’s point of view.

Living and Learning: I know honesty is important.

We have been thinking about our Christian value of honesty. After discussing what we think honesty means we talked about whether it always makes people happy.  We talked about why it is important to be honest and about what happens if we are not. We then made an acrostic poem about honesty.

This week we have been discussing all of the things we could do with our money. As a school we have decided to bring all of our 1p and 2p coins from home so that we can create a penny trail.

We have chosen to give our money to an organisation for a good cause. Take a look!

Craft Club- Self Portraits

Posted on Thursday 09 May 2019 by Mrs Allen-Kelly

This week in Craft Club, we looked at the self-portraits of Pablo Picasso. We compared his earlier realistic self-portraits with the later abstract images.

The crafters then chose how they wanted to represent their own self-portraits. We selected from felt tips, colouring pencils and oil pastels. We used mirrors to make sure we captured all of our features.

When we had finished, we turned the self portraits into stick puppets!

We then presented our self-portraits in a mini puppet show; telling the audience whether we had chosen a realistic or abstract style. We also shared something that we like or enjoy.

Next week, Miss Pyart will continue our self-portrait work, with a focus on Pop-Art.

Well done Crafters 🙂
