Here is some of our Art Work.

We have been exploring a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function. Take a look at the photos to see what we have been up to.

JELLY INVESTIGATION

As part of our topic on All About me , we have been looking at the sense of taste. We carried out an investigation to see if you can taste colour. We made four different coloured jellies and then took a turn whilst blindfolded to guess the colour. We learnt that you can not guess colour but you can guess flavour and the flavour is usually linked to a particular colour.

Peer Massage

The massage in schools programme is a well structured yet simple programme. The clothed, peer massage is:

Given and received with the child's permission

Given by the children to each other

On the back, head, arms and hands

Takes 10-15 mins

All the children ask permission from each other before they start and say 'thank you' to their partner at the end.

Peer massage teaches children to respect each other and leads to social inclusion. It is also very calming and improves concentration.

Our Kind and Helpful Tree

We made a class Kind and Helpful Tree. When we do something helpful or kind , we can put a leaf on the tree.  We have started to put some leaves on already.

Jigsaw

Jigsaw PHSE is a whole school philosophy with children at its heart. It looks at  the following units:-

1. Being in my world

2. Celebrating Difference

3. Dreams and Goals

4. Healthy Me

5. relationships

6. Changing Me

We have Jenie our Jigsaw friend who we pass around the circle when we are taking part in discussions. The picture shows a picture of Jenie

 

 

Diwali

Diwali is a very special festival for Hindus who celebrate it by having special food, giving  presents to each other, having fireworks and the lighting of candles. This year Diwali is on 6th November. In Beech Class we have been celebrating Diwali by carrying our lots of fun activities. We have made some clay diva pots to put candles in, we also did some rangoli patterns and mendhi hand designs. Then we made some Diwali sweets using coconut. Finally we celebrated by doing some Indian dancing.

The World

In Beech Class we have been learning about other countries around the world. We have learnt to say 'Hello' and 'Goodbye' in different languages. We tried some Indian food and some French croissants and also made our own pizzas. We also listenend to music from around the world.

Children in Need

We came to school in our own clothes  and brought to school our cuddly toys to raise funds for Children in Need. 

Christmas in Beech Class

In Beech Class we have been busy getting ready for Christmas. We have made a Christmas Card and a Calender. We have also made lots of lovely Christmas decorations.  We have also been learning the songs for the performance of 'The Disgruntled Snowman'. Take a look at the slideshow to see the things that we have been doing.

A Visit from Father Christmas

Father Christmas came to see us on Party Day. He brought us all a present and then flew away on his reindeer.
