How do we see things?
Year 3 have been "looking" at their eyes in Science this week. They found out about the different parts of the eye, how what we see is refracted images through the lens in our eyes and how light is divided into different colours. Very exiting to see different optical illusions too!
We all loved the fantastic music, dance and drums of the Zulu Nation group who came to visit. We learned a lot about "keeping to the beat" and watching the dancers movements in the afternoon workshops...amazing!
Trees for the future.
Children from Year 3 and 4 really enjoyed helping Jess French a CBeebies television presenter and the "HUG" team, plant 12 specially donated trees by Octopus energy, on our school field and at The Orchard. The whole event was filmed by a camera man and the trees were also blessed by Reverend Knapton. It was exiting to think of what the trees could look like in the future and to think that "We were there at the start."
"A New Perspective".
Year 3 have been learning about David Hockney and the how he and other artists use perspective in their art. We sketched outdoors and looked through view-finders to see how perspective works.
The Year 4 children have had a fabulous time baking! The children really enjoyed themselves and learnt lots of important skills.
Year 4 Outdoor Learning
The Year 4 children spent an afternoon in the glorious sunshine working together with their reading buddy classes and learning outside.
