Materials for Art

As part of our project in Art, we are aiming to create individual carnival costumes! For this, we are kindly asking for parents and carers to send their children into school with some/any of the following:

·         Fabric (of any kind – a pillow case, of any colour, would be great!)

·         Cardboard

·         Buttons

·         Stickers 

·         Gems

·         Feathers

These are just some examples of what your child can use to decorate their costume; if they are keen to bring in anything else, then, of course, that’s fine! We will also have resources for the children to use, but if this can be ‘topped up’ with whatever you can bring, that would be great.

We have our Art lessons next Friday(25th); if all materials could be brought in with a NAMED carrier bag on Monday 21st or Tuesday 22nd, that would be fab!

Thank you. We are really looking forward to seeing what the children produce next week!

Stay safe,

The Year 1 Team

Nottinghill Carnival

Year 1 has begun learning about the Nottinghill Carnival. We spoke about what the carnival celebrates, the type of clothing worn, the things you would see and the things you would do at the carnival. We will continue to learn about the Nottinghill Carnival throughout this half term. Look at some of the work Hedgehogs class has done!

Environmental Champions

This half term, Hedgehogs class has been looking at the environment and the different ways we can help to keep it clean. We have looked at different materials and their properties, with a focus on recycling and we have even made our own compost bin for the class. We have also written letters asking for more food caddies for the school. Using everyday recyclable items, the class has designed and made some amazing instruments. Their designs were well thought out and the class put a tremendous amount of effort in considering which items they could use and for what purpose. They then evaluated their final product. Miss Garnett and I are extremely proud of how they turned out and the children were quite proud as well! Here are some photos of their instruments with their evaluations. Well done Hedgehogs!

Environmental Champions

Badger Class have been learning about different ways we can help and keep our environment clean and tidy. We have written letters to ask for support for all classes to have food caddies. We have also looked at different materials and their properties, with particular focus on recycling. Using every day recyclable goods, we managed to make some fantastic instruments. Mrs Knock, Miss Peyton and I are really proud of how they turned out. The children planned their designs and took their time making them, with careful consideration of what could be used for each part. They then evaluated their final instruments. Here are some photos of their instruments and evaluations. Well done Badgers 🙂
