History of Printing Day

Oak 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.

Oak Class 'Fireworks in the Sky'

We have really enjoyed learning about Guy Fawkes and the 'Gun Powder Plot'. We have done some drama, art, writing and composed a piece of firework music. For our musical piece we thought about the sounds different fireworks make and chose musical instruments to represent those fireworks. We went into groups and created a piece to represent a firework and then we put all the fireworks together to make our piece of music.

Oak Class 'Steven Brown' inspired animal alphabet art

We have had great fun learning about different animals in our 'Animal Antics' topic and have been doing lots of writing and art. In our writing we have looked at the alphabet and practised our upper and lower case letters. We have learnt the skill of colour mixing using the primary colours to make different greens, purples and oranges. We also looked at the Scottish artist 'Steven Brown' and painted animals in a similar style. Each child painted an animal from a different letter of the alphabet and we have made their paintings into an alphabet book. Please enjoy looking at our colourful paintings with your child. Look out for some of the more unusual animals. We even have a Vaquita which is criticaly endangered!
