Submitted by class1 on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 - 09:20

We were very lucky because although our Teddy Making Workshop got cancelled, Alison from Kippy's Pottery in Ashford made us packs to take home so we could make them! We then named them and sent them all to Miss Reed! How cute are they!!

Swallow class had a great day reading The Tin Forest and re-writing it from the perspective of the toucan. We really enjoyed creating art based on the book too.

Children's Games in 2020 - Cuckoo Class

We have been looking at the painting 'Children's Games' by Pieter Bruegel the Elder painted in 1560. We were looking at how the games differ from today and we had a conversation as to why it might have been different.

Then we spoke about how it might look if it was painted today. We spoke about materials, safety and the games we play today. We then each drew ourselves playing with one of our toys and added it to the background of the school playground. See below our version of Breugel's painting which we have titled: Children's Games in 2020 by Cuckoo Class.


Watch out for more versions as we learn more about the history of toys!

Our 'Lights Camera Action' topic this term provided us wth the opportunity to design and make a fabulous Wizard of Oz inspired shoe-box theatre. The children chose the scene from the film that they wanted to replicate and spent many sessions creating their design brief and building their project.

Unfortunately, it was rainy so we had a go at painting with natural materials instead.
