Class 1 have been amazing this term – settling back into school well and getting straight back into learning! We are enjoying being with our friends again, learning to play together and help one another and making the most of the sunshine in our newly refurbished outside area!

   We are really enjoying exploring number in maths at the moment. We are learning to calculate mentally and exploring strategies to do so. We are applying our learning to calculations and problem solving.

We love art in Class 1 and this term we are exploring colour! We have learnt about primary and secondary colours, colour mixing and how some colours contrast and complement each other. We are looking at the artist Andy Warhol and recreating our own self portraits in a pop art style.

Art 2

During lockdown, the children of key workers that were in school discussed the good memories we had of being at home during lockdown. We created printing tiles from polystyrene and made prints of our favourite memories from lockdown.
