Our starlings are finished and being mounted on the wall today. Our Monet masterpieces have been collected to be framed and returned ready for the Art Gallery on Monday 11th July – open to parents from 2.45pm onwards. Remember the paintings will be on sale!
At the moment we’re focussing on lily-pads and water in the style of Monet!
What a busy day!
It started with Tomas visiting us to tell us about life in Ancient Greek times. It involved dressing up! Can you guess who this is?
Then we learnt about The Labours of Hercules (a Greek myth) and acted it out.
After that, back to the classroom to make Olympic Torches as we’ve been learning about how the games began.
Finishing off with sampling food prepared by all key stage 2 classes.
Here’s a picture of us this afternoon with our Olympic Torches.
This morning Rev’d Mark came into Willow Class to talk about moving on to Secondary Schools. The children thought about their feelings of excitement and nerves about the forthcoming changes. We discussed these and thought about strategies to cope in these situations. Zoe thought the best thing was ‘not to panic’ and we all agreed with her!
The children were all given a book – ‘It’s your Move’ from the Pewsey Vale Churches which contains lots of activities and tips.
With the girls away playing cricket, the boys chose what they wanted to do for the morning. We had time on the apparatus in the hall; played cricket on the field, and then made k’nex models which had levers and gears.
Today the ladies of Willow went out for to play cricket at Amesbury. It certainly was cricketing weather and they all had a great time. They came third although one of the girls later said that they were the actual winners because they had laughed, smiled and enjoyed themselves more than the other teams!
