History of Printing Day
Beech Class has enjoyed learning about how printing has developed from William Caxton with the early printing press to the invention of the World Wide Web. The children created timelines and took part in printing activities some of which were edible! They thought about how creating books has changed and become a much easier process. A class book review was written and the children explored how to safely use the Internet to share our learning.
We have really enjoyed learning about Guy Fawkes and 'The Gunpowder Plot'. We developed our skills of asking and answering questions about the events leading up to the capture of Guy Fawkes and the celebration which took place after. We have been busy exploring how music is created, produced and communicated through composing and creating a musical piece to pictures of fireworks. We hope you enjoy listening to our sound track of firework music.
The Beech class have been learning all about different animals. As part of this topic the children have learnt the skill of colour mixing using the primary colours red, yellow and blue to make green, purple and orange. The children then looked at paintings by the Scottish artist Steven Brown and painted an animal in a similar style. Each child painted an animal from a different letter of the alphabet, and their paintings have been made into an alphabet display in class. Please enjoy looking at the paintings with your child. Look out for the more unusual animals, the ferret, iguana, jackal, marmoset, numbat, quail and the vaquita!
