In Arts Week, we are looking at a very talented artist. Stephen Wiltshire is an artist who draws and paints detailed cityscapes. He has a particular talent for drawing lifelike, accurate representations of cities, sometimes after having only observed them briefly. He was awarded an MBE for services to the art world in 2006.
We created an artist page in our sketch books and have then tried to draw a building with as much detail as possible after only looking at it for 60 seconds. This is something Stephen did for Nissan using VR technology.
We then had a go at creating a scaled architectural drawing of a famous Harrogate building. Below you can see us at work. We applied lots of Maths skills as we were using protractors, rulers and compasses.
A trip to the theatre!
We've had a great start to Arts Week today; we spent the morning at Harrogate Theatre. We had a tour round and found out about some of the history of the building, we got to look backstage and even managed to get in dressing room number 1 and a box! We also took part in a visual impairment workshop.
What a great start we have had in the Flamingos class to our Health Week in school. We all took part in a great Zumba workshop which was lots of fun and have thought about ways we can keep our mental health healthy!
Our 'Make Do and Mend' bags are complete!
After a lot of sewing, can finally say we have all made a new bag from some old clothing. Some of the finished bags look amazing! A big thank you to Mrs Clough and Mrs Evans who came in to help sew.
Make Do And Mend
What a lovely Friday afternoon we had today. We spent our time looking at three stitches (running, back and blanket) that we may use when we are making our own bags next week using the 'Make Do And Mend' approach! On that note, if any parents or grandparents would like to come and lend a hand, we will be sewing on the afternoon of Monday 10th December. Pease feel free to come and help!
World War 2 Tea Party
What a fantastic time we all had at the World War II Tea Party on Monday 3rd December. All the children looked great in their outfits. It was really lovely to have so many visitors in school to share their experiences from the war. The food was amazing too! A great afternoon.
What a great week away at East Barnby we all had. We even had some sunshine too! A few photos below...there are many more. You can order a memory stick from school full of photos. Please return your slip by 26th October.
We enjoyed having visitors to our Maths lesson during the Macmillan Coffee Morning and Open Hour. Lots of Maths games had been prepared to help us apply our number skills in place value, negative number and rounding, so we invited our parents and grandparents to play with us. Thanks and apologies to Alexander's mum, Archer's mum and Florence's dad who found themselves being roped into our Times Table Rockstar challenge!
