Authors, Artists, Scientists and Explorers in Paddington Class

We have had another brilliant week in Paddington Class! We have been working particularly hard on our story writing skills, working as a team to write a different version of The Enormous Turnip.  Some idea have included having a different vegetable stuck in the ground such as a potato or carrot, as well as an old tractor, a poorly bird and even Elsa.  Next week we will be continuing to develop these ideas as the children are encouraged to write their own versions of the story.

Other highlights have been:

  • In Art we have been working on our shading skills. We explored using different materials including pencil, pastel and charcoal, experimenting to see which material was best to use to make different tones.
  • In maths we have been splitting two digit numbers into the tens and ones.
  • In History we talked abut the life of Queen Elizabeth II and sequenced events in her life.
  • In Forest School we explore confers and their shells. Unfortunately we do not have a mature Horse Chestnut tree in the school grounds yet but we were able to explore lots that have been collected locally.  The children loved racing the conkers along the drainpipes and making patterns with them by rolling them in paints.

Have a great weekend

Mrs Egan
