Room 17’s Christmas Village

Today was a busy day in Room 17. Our Art Projects were due and we invited many classes to view the houses and buildings we constructed using recyclable waste. They were very impressed with our hard work and we are really looking forward to arranging them to form a Christmas Village.

Picasso Witches in Room 1

In Room 1 we were learning all about Pablo Picasso.

We learned all about his different pieces of art and his cubism style.

Cubism is a style of art which aims to show objects and people from lots of different angles all at one time. This is done through the use of cubes and other shapes.

Take a look at the witches we constructed taking inspiration from Picasso’s cubism style.

September Newsletter by Room 17

We began Fifth Class in Room 17, just over a month ago, after a lovely Summer Break. We have been working really hard and have enjoyed our first month!

We really enjoyed Art, we explored different patterns and we painted some Autumnal Scenes. For PE, we started swimming and we will keep this up during October. For Science, we did two experiments exploring sound travel and insulation. We learned about the mountains, rivers and deserts of the world in Geography and mixed it with Art to make maps of the world. In English, we wrote Recounts of our Summer holidays and we are reading Charlotte’s Web. In History, we learned all about St. Louis in the past, we were shocked to find out that there was a fire before it was a school and that the old caretaker, Mr Cullen, lived up by the offices! We collected data in Maths to make bar charts and found out some interesting things about pupils in our school. We also began using Spellings for Me and enjoyed going to the computer room for testing.

This is some of our favourite work from the month, we hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. We are really looking forward to October, which begins with Friendship Fortnight!

Thanks for reading,
