Our Learning Challenge

Miro Sculptures

As part of our learning challenge ‘Why is Spain a cool place to live?’ we researched the Spanish artist Joan Miro and used our noticing skills to nominate the shapes, colours and styles he created. We created mini art galleries using old cassette cases and made a 3D sculpture using brightly coloured plasticine. Here are our finished designs

Letter

Happy New Year to everyone!

Thank you to all the parents, grandparents and other family or friends who are such great supporters of all our learning so far, both in and out of school. Your support is really appreciated.

 READING- It is very important that your child is still reading at home. The benefits of reading with an adult daily have a huge impact. Please ensure the children are bringing their reading books into school to change them frequently. Please encourage your child to use the school library and  

HOMEWORK- Please support your child with their homework. Homework books must be signed by a parent and handed in on a Wednesday so that they can be marked and prepared to be handed back on the Friday. Please continue to learn times tables- even if these are not set.

SWIMMING- I am pleased to say we are continuing with our swimming lessons this term. The improvement some children made during last term was amazing and such an important life skill to have. Thank you very much for ensuring your child is in school for 8.25am every Tuesday morning, it is very helpful in allowing us to get to the baths on time.

PE KITS- Please remember to keep your PE kit in school so that it is available for all PE lessons.

Spanish Day

To finish our learning challenge, we created menus of tapas food and then prepared all of the food to sample on our Spanish day. We were all fantastic at chopping, slicing, peeling, frying, mixing, stirring, blending the ingredients to make a selection of dishes such as: patatas bravas, Spanish omelette, chorizo and pepper skewers, manchego cheese with olives and chorizo, Spanish tomato bread with/ without Serrano ham, cucumber and feta nibbles and non- alcoholic sangria.

It was a busy day preparing and eating the food but we had time to sing some Spanish songs and find out about flamenco dancing. We even had a go ourselves! It was a great end to our learning and we all enjoyed ourselves even though some of us didn’t like the olives! 😉
