    This week we had a PE workshop with Ash! We moved around like animals; our crab noises were very impressive! We also escaped the Fire of London by crawling over benches, jumping through hoops and reaching the safety of the River Thames. Thank you Ash! :)

    THE GREAT FIRE OF LONDON BAKE OFF HAS STARTED!! 

    10.11.17

    This week we have been learning about algorithms in Computing. Year ones went outside in the sunshine and were giving each other algorithms using left and right instructions. A very happy bunch of Hawk-bots in the sunshine!

     

    We also looked at a map of London to see how far and how quickly the Great Fire spread. Some of us visited the Great Fire of London monument recently and this inspired us to design our own. 

     

    A busy week!

    This week we made Firework pictures using chalk! We also had Show and Tell today where we looked at a Barrister's wig from a shop that was around in 1666. Half of the shop was burnt by the Great Fire of London!

    We had a fantastic Fire of London drama workshop this week! We acted out a play and learnt to use big voices to project our lines. We will be reciting a poem for you at our Parent Assembly next term :)

    We have started our Aboriginal Art Fire paintings and they are looking fantastic! We used cotton wool buds to create circles with the paint and made sure we used fire colours. Our finished art work will be up here next week. Stay tuned!

     

    We also created a class jigsaw puzzle in pairs and groups, using our 'relate' learning power. Don't we fit together well! :)

    We can all tell you the story of The Great Fire of London using our story map journeys! 

    Some of us even read them out in front of the whole school as part of our Work Share Assembly.

    This week we have learnt a lot about how the Fire of London started and what it was like back in 1666. We are very excited to read some of Samuel Pepy's diary!

     

    We have started our art project, making Aboriginal Art designs that reflect fire.

    Welcome back! I hope you have all had a super break. 

     

    We have had a brilliant first week getting to know each other and learning about our new topic....

     

    The Great Fire of London! 

    HAVE A FANTASTIC SUMMER HOLIDAY! frown

    We had a brilliant Seaside party today! We had face painting, ice lollies, swing ball, sand pits and more. A great way to finish off our topic and enter the Summer holidays. 

    14.7.17

    Our puppets are coming along very nicely. We took inspiration from Punch and Judy as part of our Seaside topic. We made templates and plans for our puppets, thinking carefully about how we could put them together and which design ideas we would like to use.

    We also had another trip to the allotments this week. The sunshine came out to meet us there! Thank you to all the adult helpers who made our trip possible and shared their knowledge of the outdoors with us. 

    7.7.17

    We took a moment to appreciate the beautiful scenery from our school this week and sketched the landscape. We have some very talented artists in Hawks!

    We are getting into the swing of our temporary classroom in the hall.

    As we don't have an outdoor area anymore, we are bringing the outside in and growing our own plants. Watch this space!

     

    We are very excited to explore Thrupp allotments next week.

    Hawks have moved into their temporary classroom in the hall! They are doing a super job getting used to all the changes.

     

    We had great fun making algorithms this week in our computing sessions.

     

    We also worked together to gather all that we know about our topic 'The Seaside'.  smiley
