Today we had a great time celebrating the Queen’s 90’th birthday. The Elf Owl’s had a very creative morning making crowns, flags and placemats. This afternoon we had a tea party in the classroom to celebrate! The Elf Owl’s looked fantastic dressed up in clothes from different decades. Well done everybody! I hope you’ve enjoyed this special day 🙂
A big thank you to Mrs Smith for all her help today and for making the buns and sandwiches!
Earlier this week we received a strange and rather mysterious letter from the Alien Schoolboy! He told us that he had been to visit our planet and he was very confused about what he saw. He asked us lots of questions about our planet and our school. We decided to write back to him to answer his questions. We asked him questions too! We are hoping that he replies to our letters next week! Here are some examples of the excellent letters that the Elf Owl’s have written. We will put more onto the blog next week when the children finish them. Well done everybody!
This half term we will be reading ‘Letters from an Alien Schoolboy’ by R.L.Asquith. We read the first few pages last week and we are really enjoying it. Lots of the work that we will do this half term will be based on the book and we can’t wait to get stuck in 🙂
Today we looked at the famous painting ‘A Starry Night’ by the artist Vincent Van Gogh. We looked carefully at the detail in the painting and discussed the style that Van Gogh had used. We then had a go at recreating our own ‘Starry Night’ pictures using different media & materials. Everyone tried so hard and we produced some fantastic artwork. Well done Elf Owls!
