Maths week…

Wow what a marvellous, magical Maths week we have had. A visit by the Maths man, creating board games with 6M, making school building art with 2D shapes, designing posters and finally sharing our work in assembly on Friday. Here are some of the pictures of what we have done.       

Becoming artists…

Our new topic is helping us to be better artists. This week, while looking at the artist Monet, we were also reviewing the skills we need when creating art. Many of us didn’t know our primary or secondary colours, so we set out to learn them. We took the three primary colours of red, yellow […]
