Friday, 22 May 2020

The children of class 5 continue to work hard and enjoy the various lessons and challenges being set for them to complete at home. They have enjoyed the work so much, that they asked for more over half term, so Mr Ellicott has given them an optional project, with a prize up for grabs! We hope you all have a lovely half term and enjoy some rest time too.

Here is a selection of work completed this week.

Nature Afternoon

Friday, 22 May 2020

The children in school on Thursday had a lovely afternoon completing a nature trail. They looked for different animal footprints and the animals themselves, then matched them correctly. Team ‘Reglac’ was the first to solve it accurately. The other photos show Simon, Kimareon and Olga hard at work doing excellent sketches of different British wildlife. These were then finished off with some coffee painting – an unusual, but very effective style. Well done to all children as your work was fantastic, and thanks to Jess (Mr Ellicott’s daughter) for organising the afternoon for us.
