Persephone’s Pomegranate in Year 1!

After Mr Crump’s recent assembly on Persephone and the pomegranate seeds,  Mrs Bird decided to buy a pomegranate for the children to look inside. They drew the outside first, then a cross section to reveal the beautiful seeds within. Finally, as a treat,  they tasted the seeds at the end of the lesson!

It’s all about me in Nursery!

Our Nursery children’s current topic is About Me and this week they have been learning all about their bodies and what’s inside them. Janet and Allan Ahlberg’s Funnybones is always a great favourite and the children’s artwork based on the classic story was just going up on the wall when the roving camera popped in this morning!

The children were also enjoying some free play, drawing and working one-to-one with their teachers on number work.

A smack of Jellyfish by Year 5

 

Year 5 pupils created this colourful ‘smack’ of jellyfish in art last term.

  • Did you know that jellyfish…

… can be bigger than a human, while others are as small as a pinhead?
… are eaten by people in some countries?
… have been on Earth for millions of years, even before dinosaurs?
… have no brain but some kinds have eyes?
… are mainly made up of water and protein?
… and that a group of jellyfish is called a ‘smack’?

Clara and Ruby’s Hearts for Manchester

Over half term, Clara (Year 9), together with Mum  Mary and sister  Ruby , who is joining us this September in Year 7,  got involved in the campaign to fill Manchester with handmade hearts  as a symbol against terrorism after the attack. Thousands of hearts were sent from all over the world and were distributed in the city on Monday of this week.  Clara made hearts from felt and designed wooden hearts, while  Ruby knitted hers.  The response was incredible as you can see from the campaign’s  Facebook page  #AHEART4MCR
