Art Showcase

March 24th, 2013 by Angela Richardson

“Fantastic”, “Great”, “Super design”, “Wow”, “Wonderful colours”, “Brilliant collage”! These were just a few of the comments made by our children as they walked round our second Art Exhibition of the year. This time we decided that we would all visit each others classrooms to look at the creative work we had been doing since Christmas.

The work had been put up and displayed in each class for all to see and for some of our Key Stage 1 and Foundation children, it was the first time they had visited the “big,grown up” classrooms of Key Stage 2. How exciting! For Key Stage 2 children, they were going back to their Infant classes (we had to drag some of them away!)

Walking round we saw a variety of collage, weaving, textile, clay models, sewing, painting and drawing as well as fantastic designs and models including musical instruments, ski hats, vehicles, pirate rafts, houses, space crafts and green machines since this time we had decided to include DT work into our exhibition.

We had a wonderfully interesting, enjoyable and enlightening time looking at all our creations and cannot wait for our third exhibition in the Summer term.

Year 6 Research – Famous Mountaineers

January 21st, 2013 by Angela Richardson



Year 6, as we will miss our ICT lesson this afternoon, Mrs Crouch and I thought it would be good if you could do some research at home. Your mission is to research a famous mountaineer so that next week we can type them up for a display in class. Below there is a list of mountaineers that you can choose from, or you can pick one of your own.
We would like a biographical account of their life including their early life,family,greatest achievements and significant events.
You can add your research as a comment in the same way that you did for the Chill Factore. (Putting it on the blog, means that next week you will be able to just copy and paste your work over and the job is done)!
Here is a list of mountaineers to help you choose.
Tenzing Norgay
Sir Edmund Hillary
Arlene Blum
Sir Chriss Bonnington
Scott Fischer
Bear Grylls
Alison hargreaves
Andrew Irvine
Jean-Christophe Lafaille
George Mallory
Alain Robert
Joe Simpson.

We look forward to reading your interesting facts! Please remember to put your research IN YOUR OWN WORDS.

Mrs Crouch

Roman Mosaics

December 7th, 2012 by stmarysyear3

In Year 3 we have been learning about the Romans. We have made mosaic candle holders.

Jude: We used Roman colours. These were the type of rock colours that the Romans used in their mosaics.

Meghan: We coloured square paper first to design the colours on the glass.

Karol and Jessica P also designed a mosaic floor for our Roman village courtyard.

Jessica P: we designed a mosaic with coloured pencils on squared paper first. We used green, red, yellow and blue colours. We did a line down the middle. we did a side each and made it symmetrical. we did a flower pattern. I really enjoyed it!
