Tim Hopgood Art
This week we have made artwork inspired by the story ‘Wow! Said The Owl’ by Tim Hopgood. We started by creating and layering our owls face using lots of different sized circles. We then drew our owl’s bodies and decorated using different chalk and pastel patterns. Don’t they look amazing?
Today was lots of fun! We dissected owl pellets carefully using tweezers and cocktail sticks so we could find out what the owl had been eating. We were really excited to find lots of different bones and then try and match our bones with the examples to find out what each bone was.
What fantastic weather we had for our school sports day this year! It was great to see all of the parents and grown ups there to cheer on the children and the children were so excited to see you all too! We started our morning with the obstacle course which involved wearing a penguin inflatable trying to avoid the orcas! Next it was an old favourite; the sack race followed by the egg and spoon race. Finally the excitement rose once again for the water relay and the sprint race. Needless to say everyone had a great time in the sunshine and we would like to say thank you again for helping us to make this such an amazing morning!
Owl Press Prints
This week we created our owl press prints. We had to work through a range of steps to create our art work. First we designed our owl on a whiteboard making sure it was a good size. Then we carefully copied it onto our polystyrene tile using a whiteboard pen. The tricky bit was tracing our design using a pencil making sure we didn't push too hard. Once our tile was ready we covered it with ink and pressed it onto the paper. What a great start to our new topic.
Treat Time for Eagle Class
After we were sadly unable to visit the new adventure golf at Charlton Lakes this week, Miss Allen provided us with an even better surprise! We had such a super afternoon racing in our own Eagle Grand Prix and enjoying the sunshine in a variety of different activities! Here are some photos of all the fun we had!
Jubilee Week at Portway
What a great week we have had! We have been learning all about Queen Elizabeth and her incredible life. We took part in our very own Portway Highland Games where we competed in a tug of war, wellie wanging and shotput. Everyone really enjoyed baking biscuits and we decorated them with red, white and blue icing. At the end of our fun week, we embellished crowns ready to wear at our Portway Street Party where we ate lots of delicious food and danced with our friends. Have a look at the photos below to see how much fun we had!
