Spring 2

Today we had a great time learning how to fence

Spring 2

We have been talking about why a book is special to us, sharing our favourite book during show and tell and drawing and writing about them.

In RE we listened to the story of Joseph and his multi-coloured coat. We then designed our own coat and pieces of patchwork.

For Art we looked at the illustrator Quentin Blake and used watercolour and ink to draw our own characters.

This half term our topic is all about books. We will be using maps to explore the local area, learning about different materials in Science and looking at faith books in RE. For English the children will be exploring different traditional tales and looking at how the authors change the text.  We will  be looking at the work of the author and illustrator Quentin Blake .

Autumn 2

This half Term we have had a lovely time learning about how it was different in  Queen Elizabeth I reign to  Queen Elizabeth II. We painted,  used pastels and collage to make portraits of the Queens. We also made a sculpture of  Queen Elizabeth I using mod rock.

We have had great fun using all the different maths equipment to make different number sentences.

Welcome to a  new school year. During the year the children will be looking at different topics these include comparing the lives of Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Elizabeth II, traditional tales, buildings and what Hitchin use to be like, animals and looking at what might be found in around our gardens. The children will be taught all the different subjects in the national curriculum within these topics. and were possible English and maths will be linked as well.

This half term our topic is all about me. We have been looking at portraits and how different artists use different medium to produc different styles of portraits.  

Below are  the children own self- portraits.

We also looked at the work of Picasso and created our own style of Picasso by mixing up our faces with our friends.
