Collaging Skills

In Art, Class 1 are practising their collaging skills this half term. The children are learning all about creating different effects, using tools and discovering artists. Here some of them are practising their scissor skills. Look at the concentration!

Settling In

Class 1 have settled back into school so well! We are really proud of the effort they are putting into their learning and love seeing their happy, smiling faces every morning.

Read. Holmfirth Author Event

On Monday 18th October Class One took part in the Read. Holmfirth event with author and illustrator Nick Sharratt during a live ‘Draw along’ session.

 The children loved learning how to draw characters from his books, concentrated exceptionally well and drew some amazing pictures!

Well done Class One, what an amazing morning!

This week Class 1 have been busy getting to know our new monster friends from ‘Monster Phonics’.

We have been learning new sounds and finding out a bit more about the monsters. We also painted pictures and made playdough models of our favourites!

We have even been using a top-secret password in the classroom!
