‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term A

Week Four


Well the children have finished their art topic all about impressionism. It has been a joy to see their paint mixing skills and technique coming on leaps and bounds; they even had a limited pallet when looking at Monet's Haystacks and they had to choose a season in which to paint them. Finally we created a group painting in this style but you will have to wait till next week for the unveiling.


Mrs, Barr has been getting to grips with friction in Science where the children were investigating difference surfaces and relating this to real life.


Mr, Mather also delivered his second session of the ABC programme exploring antisocial behaviour and consequences.

Week Three


Well the children have been very creative this week as we have been exploring Impressionism and looking at the art work of Claud Monet. After looking at many examples of impressionist painters, we put brush to paper to create our first attempts at painting in this style.


Also Year 5 loved our Dogs Trust assembly and workshop.


The children have been looking at the past perfect tense in relation to our class text. The children had completed several sentences our the watertower from the story.

Have a lovely weekend.
