End of Term Exhibition for Every Child is an Artist

This term the children have been working with Hannah, Jayne and Claire. Here is some of their work in our end of term exhibition.  Our theme was the environment, looking at whats inside and what is outside around us.  In year 1 and 2 it helped us to build a city scape with the inside of our imagined rooms on the other side, while other peices looked at creating art from the bugs and creatures outside which we looked at.

The ceramic tiles were inspired by the artists Hundertwasser who makes really colourful abstract work of of landscapes. The pieces will go outside in a new location for the school.

Long and short

In maths Nursery have been learning all about long and short things. Last week Miss Fensome and some of the children found some really long pieces of string that went from one side of the classroom to the other. We had so much fun going under and over it! image

playing with technology written by Ali and Tammie

A few weeks ago we have been learning about the mission 2097 and we have created how the future would be like and created ourselves.We made little bits and makey makey we used schematics to help us.With all of this it made electronic wheels and saw them rolling.A few weeks ago we made controllers  that could be touched and use to move around.Last week we had the exhibition and different tech was used and our technology was used our controllers were there and our pictures.We made boxes and glued and sticked pictures that we drawed and in the exhibition we used our controllers to move the cardboard box with all our pictures and the controller moved the box left right up and down.

 

working with Ben has been a blast.It was innovative and creative.Im hoping that the next project will be as good as this one.Drawing pictures for the box controller was fun also making controllers was fun as ever.Even drawing ourselves in 2087 was extremely creative.I and many others will miss this goodbye ben and goodbye this project.it has been fun and exiting.this project was one of my favrioute  projects so long to this exiting on of my most favroute projects.
