Jungle exhibition

A huge thank you to all of the parents and relatives who came to our exhibition this morning. The children loved having the opportunity to share their work with you. We hope you enjoyed sharing some of our Art activities with your child today. Here are some pictures from our jungle exhibition.









Moving pictures

Today the children have used their Creative power and DT skills to make animal pictures with moving body parts. Children were taught how to use split pins to join paper together and then tried to use them independently to make an animal picture with a moving head, arms, legs and tail. We look forward to sharing these with you at our jungle exhibition next Thursday.



Using clay

Today we have used our Art skills and our Creative power to help us to make model clay animals. The children have used tools and their hands to shape and join pieces of clay to make a model of their favourite animal. We are looking forward to sharing these with you at our jungle exhibition next week.



Zoo artwork

Following our day at Twycross Zoo the children used their Art skills and their Creative power to paint pictures of the animals that we saw. You will be able to see these at our jungle exhibition on Thursday 23rd October.


Henri Rousseau

As part of our ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ topic we have looked at the work of the artist Henri Rousseau. We used some of his ideas to create our own jungle collage pictures. We are looking forward to sharing them with you at our jungle exhibition on Thursday 23rd October.


Number bonds

In Maths we have been learning our number bonds for 5. Our number bonds are two numbers that add together to make a total. Use this rhyme to help your child to know their number bonds for the total of 5.

0 + 5 do a hand jive.
1 + 4 open the door.
2 + 3 drink some tea.
3 + 2 tie your shoe.
4 + 1 high five someone.
5 + 0 superhero!

Children need to know all of their number bonds for 5 confidently to help them with their addition and problem solving.
