St Patrick's Day 2019

St Patrick's Day 2019 1

In English this week we looked at how Ireland celebrates St Patrick's Day. We drew Leprachauns and used forks and orange paint to give them beards. We also designed our own version of the shamrock, and used the computer to create "something Irish". 

We're going on a bear hunt!

We're going on a bear hunt! 1

In English this week we have been looking at 'We're going on a bear hunt' story. We have painted our favourite scenes from the story and used junk modelling to make our own caves for the bear to hide in. We also wrote our own story endings and designed our own book covers. We loved exploring the thick, oozy mud in our sensory garden!

Chinese New Year 2019

Chinese New Year 2019 1 Cedar Class have been exploring Chinese culture.

We have been using our senses to explore traditional Chinese food and culture.

In English we have been working on our sentence structures and looking at Chinese writing.

In Maths we looked at the shapes of a Chinese dragon, and used numicon shapes to design our own.

As you can see, we were really inspired by Chinese art and colours, and put lots of effort into creating our own masterpieces.


Look how hard Cedar Class have worked to learn some new information on Chinese New Year!
