During our wider curriculum lessons, we have been learning all about the stages of human development. For our display, we brought each stage to life by using a range of art skills;

  • Oil pastels to recreate infrared photos of embryos
  • Carved and printed with polystyrene and paint to make foetuses
  • Clay modeled crawling infants
  • Sketched self portraits for childhood
  • Collage with magazines to represent adolescence 
  • Photographs for young and middle adulthood

Check out our amazing artwork in the video and photos below!

This year we have been buddied up with children in Reception. We absolutely loved meeting and getting to know our buddies this week! We are looking forward to singing at Mass together on Wednesday.

As part of our RE topic 'Ourselves', we read Paul's letter to the Colossians and explored the role of the peacemaker. We thought about everyday scenarios where we could play the role of peacemaker and acted these out. 

Our Wider Curriculum topic this half term is Anglo-Saxons. In our DT lesson this week, we created our very own warrior helmets out of paper. We discovered that although paper is a flexible material it is not very suitable for protection and next time we need to use a stronger material.
