11w  – Art

We took a line for a walk – we used different mark making tools attached to canes. We made patterns and marks using paints. We developed our core muscles by lying on the floor and making marks on the paper.

When the paint dried, we used it to make spooky monsters. We practised our scissor skills and counted the number of eyes and teeth that our monsters had. The pupils were very proud of their finished creations!



11W Bubble Blowing Painting

11W have had great fun blowing bubbles in paint . We made our pictures into pumpkins, with help we cut them out and put Halloween silhouettes on our pumpkins shape. We had great fun.







11W- Mental Health awareness day.

To celebrate World Mental Health awareness day we came to school dressed in something yellow.  We made yellow cupcakes that we decorated with yellow icing and made them look like funny faces.  We had a great time and really enjoyed ourselves!



11W Chocolate trains!

11W have made mini chocolate roll trains as part of our work on journeys.  We listened to a story about a boy who loved trains so we decided to make our own as our Friday treat!  We can share them at home.



11W MacMillan Coffee morning

11W have worked hard to bake cakes to raise money in aid of MacMillan Cancer research.  We decorated them with green icing. We also made some green and purple bunting that we used to decorate our classroom.  We enjoyed eating our cakes at our coffee morning.


10R enjoyed a visit to the sensory garden to harvest our Lavender flowers. Pupils explored the texture and smell of the lavender, and used lavender “paint brushes” to make marks on fabric.

The fabric was used to make lavender bags using the classes super-duper new sewing machine – bought for us by F.O.T.O.S. Pupils operated the sewing machine by pressing the foot with their hands.

9R Lilies we planted.

Today we looked at & touched the lilies that we had grown from bulbs  a few weeks ago. The lily plants were at all different growing stages. We then took our plants home.

9R Planting Marigolds

We have been learning about Mexico this half term. Marigolds have symbolic meanings in Mexico; they are used to decorate Offrendas (shrines) to celebrate Mexican day of the dead. 9R have got the planting bug, we put compost into our pots then  planted the marigolds. We felt the compost and smelled  the leaves and flower buds. Now we will wait for the flowers to open!

9R Making Jam Tarts

This afternoon we made jam tarts, we poured a pastry mixture into a bowl, added water then gave it a mix, took it in turns to knead the dough and roll it out. We then tasted and smelled the jam – ooh lime and strawberry! We spooned the jam into our pastry cases, then baked them in the oven.  Our jam tarts looked really yummy when cooked. We made some letters using the left over pastry and asked pupils to find their initial sound.


9R Watering the lavender we planted

Today we ventured out into our Sensory Garden, we looked, felt and had a smell of the lovely lavender that we had planted a couple of weeks ago. Our lavender needed a drink so we used our watering can to give our plants a drink.
