Where is the time going? We have been so busy! This week has been Arts’ Week and we have been on two trips!
On Monday, we started work on our art linked to our project on alternative energy sources and the impact they have on the environment. Looking at the work of artists, we tried out various techniques and planned our own work.
We went to Hinkley Point where we had a tour of the plant and enjoyed being dressed up in high viz jackets, hard hats, goggles and ear defenders! It was a busy day, but we were praised for the quality of our questioning and our behaviour.
On Wednesday,we were joined by parents who helped us to plant trees and to create chalked art work!
Our Masterpieces were great fun and we all enjoyed the experience.
Visiting Farmer Nick was Thursday’s fun. We spent time in his wood identifying trees from their leaves, seeds and bark. The children were excellent and really enjoyed it. We then went off on the tractor/trailer to visit the cows- who were not cows! Farmer Nick answered all our questions about his various types of heifer; once again, the children came up with excellent questions and listened carefully to everything they were told!
After lunch, we set off on the tractor/trailer to visit his maize fields and the village of Wrington. Once back, we went pond dipping and found so many creatures, including dragonfly nymphs. Then it was time to go home. It was such a good day!
Friday was a non-uniform day. We did lots of finishing off and in the afternoon went to the exhibition of our art work.
