Armistice day. Showing our school value of respect. We watched the Cbeebies clap about poppies. We made poppy pictures and we had 2 minutes of silence at 11 am.

Week starting 2nd November. This week we are learning all about our senses. Our story this week is 'Lucy's Picture', which is about a little girl who makes a textured collage for her blind Grandpa. We have tasted different tastes and smelled different smelly pots. We have thought about the words we use to describe things. We have listened to music and described how it makes us feel and what images it conjures in our minds. We will also listen to different pieces of music and create some pictures while we listen. We are also making our own feely collages, just like Lucy. We are learning about Melody (BBC) and her visual impairment. Please also see links below.

A trip to the school hall to do some exercise.
