This week we have been learning how to 'Find my Brave'. We have discussed how this could include trying something new, facing a fear, taking a (safe) risk and most importantly, being brave enough to discuss our feelings.

The Pendle Witch Sculpture Trail
We visited Barley in Pendle to explore The Pendle Witch Sculpture Trail and to observe the human and physical characteristics of the area.
A magician visited our school to begin to our 'Hocus Pocus' topic. He amazed us with his skills and then taught us how to perform a magic trick of our own!
When PE is much more than PE
Today we developed our jumping and landing skills but we also took risks, challenged ourselves, faced our fears and found some new ways to regulate ourselves. What a busy lesson we had!
We ended our Inventions and Inventors topic by creating a mobile phone case of our own. We had a design specification and had to use new skills to make our final product.
Mental Health Awareness Week
Dottie and Daisy's visit to Elm Class. Haven't they grown?
This week, we have made a contribution to 'The Big Clean Up' organised as part of Wigan Council's 'The Deal'. We have had a visitor from Wigan Council who explained how to reduce,recycle and re-use our rubbish. We also created posters to help reduce litter, which have been displayed around school) and art work re-using the litter we collected on our 'Big Clean Up'.
As part of our 'Above and Beyond' topic, we have been studying artists who use nature to inspire them. We have also been improving our colour-mixing skills to give us a more varied spectrum of colour choices when we paint.
Using Georgia O'Keeffe's artwork as inspiration, we created our own version of 'Abstraction White Rose'.
