Art Week Begins

Art week began with us finding out about our artist for the week Claude Monet. We had a go at recreating his style by using our fingers rather than a paint bush. This allowed us to concentrate on the ‘indistinct’ nature of Impressionism. P1090901 P1090903 P1090902 P1090908

Then, into the hall to work with our artist in residence, Helena Harris, for the first stage of our school project.

Ancient Greek Day

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.

Talking about moving on with Rev’d Mark

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.

Girls Cricket Festival

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!
