Well done for another great week, Red Kites.  Your planet art is on the slideshow below.  What fabulous artists you all are.  Mr Greenough thought they were published posters when he saw them!  I have also added some of your sketchbook work on line drawing. 

Planets: Exploring light and shade using pastels.

 18th September

Well done to everyone for settling into school well and becoming more familiar with the new routines.  Thank you to all parents and carers for supporting us with these.  This week we have been continuing with activities based on the picture book 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers. The children have been writing some beautiful poetry and song lyrics which celebrate our wonderful world.  In science we have been learning about our solar system and creating pastel pictures of planets, using art skills to create light and shade.  Photographs will be uploaded when we have put the artwork together.  This term we introduce our new 'Power Maths' scheme and we are working hard to revise and develop our maths skills in place value and number.  Below are a few pictures to show how we are working together as learning partners.

Welcome back Red Kites and Families

Well done Red Kites for a great start to the new school year. It has been lovely to see so many smiling eager faces. You all have done so well getting used to the new routines and have been so supportive of each other.  Your ideas and comments have been fantastic and thoughtful, and have made Mrs Clark and I smile.  smiley

We have been excited about starting the new term and seeing the children again, and are so happy to have had a super first day back.  Mrs Clark and I are looking forward to working with the children and helping them on this step of their learning journey. We have lots of exciting topics and activities planned for the term ahead.  During our first two weeks we will be using the picture book 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers which is a beautiful book that helps children to make sense of our amazing world and their place within it. We will use it to stimulate discussion about many issues and themes, and to develop poetry, art and other forms of writing. 

 On Wednesday afternoons, we are very lucky to have specialist staff from our academy partnership schools who will be teaching the children P.E. and Music.
