St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 3

Venus class have enjoyed being athletes, learning how to make a stance and balance on a beam!

As Geographers, Neptune Class have been using the Ipads, atlas's and fact files to identify hot and cold countries.

Venus class have been musicians this week - recording our own graphic score to 'We don't talk about Bruno!'. We were also scientists- observing the changes that happen in nature through the seasons.

Year 1 loved having Jack Rutter from 'sports for schools' visit us today, and hearing about his amazing journey as a paralympian!

As part of our enquiry 'What changes around me?' Venus class have made rain gauges and wind vanes!

Venus Class' art gallery: the children loved seeing their work displayed around the hall!

Today we launched our new enquiry 'What changes around me?'. We went on a nature walk and as Scientists, we closely observed what we could see in the environment. When we returned to the classroom, we used all our information that we had gathered to identify the season. As team players, we created a poster to show the season.

Neptune Class loved celebrating the end of their enquiry by viewing their own Year 1 art gallery!

Venus are super artists! We have explored paint, pointillism, print and drawing! Today was our final challenge in our enquiry 'What do artists do?' We created some art to display in our gallery next week, and Laura from Colourful minds did a lantern work shop with us!

Today was our enquiry challenge!! We had the challenge to use our skills that we had learned as artists over the past few weeks to create a piece of art work for our art gallery. We could choose from the skills; drawing (using thick and thin lines), colour mixing, creating texture, printing or pointillism. What super artists Neptune Class have been!

This afternoon we had a visit from an artist called Laura. We explored colour mixing through making stained glass windows.First we cut out the primary coloures and then we layered them with another primary colour to make a secondary colour.

Venus Class Gymnastics: we started gym this term and have been making different shapes with our bodies!

We have been continuing our enquiry 'What do Artists do?'. Today we had a live tour (via Zoom) of the art studious at St Anne's House and then got to talk to an artist and ask her questions. The artist sent some suggestions through of art activities to explore, Neptune Class chose to explore the artist Bobby Baker and her use of food in 'live art'. After that we learned how to create texture. We used bubble wrap,corks, forks and brushes with paint and also explored creating texture through stenciling and rubbing.
