Autumn Term

Autumn 2: Could a Meerkat Live at the North Pole?

Artist and Designer Week

We had an amazing time during Artist and Designer week. We made hats in the style of Philip Treacy and Rachel Trevor-Morgan and loved walking around the classroom with them on. With Mrs Braddock, we looked at Wassily Kandinsky's 'Squares with Concentric Circles' and created our own version. With Mrs Miller, we learnt about the artist Alma Woodsey Thomas. She was an African-American Expressionist painter. We looked at her painting 'The Stormy Sea' and recreated it.

We hope you enjoyed coming to our gallery.

We enjoyed learning about Bonfire Night. We had a go at creating  firework art out of chalk and used the FANTASTICs to write our own poems.

Autumn 1- Where Do We Live?

We had a talk about different structures, especially skyscrapers. We had a go at making our own out of spaghetti and marshmallows. It was really difficult! We looked at the different ways that we had found to make our structures stronger.

London Maps

We have really enjoyed learning about our capital city. We talked about and looked at lots of different landmarks and then worked in groups to create our own maps.

Look at our amazing UK and Autumn homework projects!

We have been very busy artists today! We made clay leaf bowls which are drying in the classroom so that we can paint them autumnal colours. It was great fun throwing the clay about to soften it and Miss Pritchard was so impressed with how independently we worked (and tidied up) today! We can’t wait to show you the finished pieces. Well done Fantastic Foxes!

17.10.19 Numeracy- Today we have been comparing numbers and amounts. To help us with the mathematical signs, we learnt about Charlie Crocodile who likes to eat the biggest number. We have been using the vocabulary greater than, smaller than, more than and less than. We loved using the split pins to make some crocodiles of our own. We loved talking about what the missing numbers could be on the other side of the sign and why we thought this.

In numeracy, we have been thinking about teen numbers. We learnt that you can make them easily with numicon by using a ten.

Miss Pritchard talked to us about mushrooms and toadstools. We now know not to pick or eat plants that we find growing in the wild. We found loads of fungi growing on the field because they like the warm and damp ground. Miss Pritchard picked the ones that we found and we took a closer look at them in the classroom with scientific equipment. We were careful not to touch them in case some were poisonous and we washed our hands carefully, just in case. We were absolutely amazed by the HUGE one that we found! It has been an amazing day.

Today, we have been learning about what it is like in autumn. We went on an autumn walk to look for signs of autumn. We collected as many leaves and pine cones as we could but we couldn’t find any conkers! Back in the classroom, we created foxes out of leaves and used the magnifying glasses to take a closer look at our collection.

Yamaha Music School visited us and treated us to a musical workshop. We had hands-on experience of listening to live music. We loved joining in with the singing and actions and some of us even had the chance to have a go on the keyboards. What a treat we had!

In topic, we have been thinking about where we live. This week, we learnt about the different countries in the United Kingdom and where they are. We loved making our own flags and talked about which one is our favourite.

We have been busy creating a special piece of Fox artwork for the hall display!

We listened to some music by the Piano Guys and used wax crayons to draw how it made us feel. We then did a colour wash using the colours of our choice. Miss Pritchard chopped up our creations and used them to make a colourful fox. We think it looks great!
