Summer Term 2021
Our Stone Age Day
What a great start to our term with all of Raccoon class dressed as Stone Age people! Even the teachers joined in. We had an excellent day with lots of fun activities including stone age art where we made our tables into caves and lay in them to create art work using charcoal. We had a fantastic time too building Stonehenge out of Bourbon biscuits. We used a toilet roll as a timeline to show just how long ago the Stone Age was.
Summer Term 2021
Welcome back, we have launched this term with our wonderful Stoneage day! Children and staff came in some marvellous stone age outfits. Children learned about cave art, they turned their desk into caves, drawing on the underside using charcoal. We ended the day learning about Stonehenge and making replicas of the monument out of bourbon biscuits!
We are really missing seeing you at school and hope you are keeping well and safe.
We would love to see and hear about the things you are doing, please ask an adult to send an email message or photo of something you have been doing, to the office to share with us. Also, let us know if we can put them on here to share with everyone.
Take care everyone,

This week we have started to explore the technique of impressionism in our art lessons. Using Monet's Water Lilies for inspiration, we have created our own art work with pastels.
On Thursday 19th April we went on our rescheduled trip to London. We visited the British Museum to look at the Egyptian exhibits for our Theme work on Egyptians. We saw lots of interesting artifacts, including a real life Mummy.
