Graduation from Marple Bridge School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
As part of our Wizarding week, children in Year 3 and 4 made a Helious Flying Potion and a Basilisk Potion, using typical magical ingredients such as; bone dust, flobberworm mucus, troll blood and much more. Check out our results below!
Leopard Class Assembly
It was Leopard class’s assembly today and what a treat! The assembly was set in a court where the children showed two sides to some famous stories. The children worked extremely hard to learn their lines and cues. They were also great at getting into character. From now on we will remember there are always two sides to every story.
We have experimented with different painting techniques and styles this term. We made detailed sketches of river scenes from our walk in Brabyns Park and we created mood boards to collect all of our ideas for a riverscape composition.
These riverscapes were done over a series of lessons, so that we could build up the colour and texture.
In Science this week we were learning about the five main groups of vertebrates. At the start of the lesson before we learnt about the groups we tried to sort animals into the correct group. This was tricky! But then at the end of the lesson we checked our work and regrouped some of the animals. We realised how much we had learnt and found it much easier!
We have been learning all about our class animals; sea-turtles, penguins and snow leopards.
We have learnt about their habitats, life cycle and why they are an endangered animal.
We have also produced some amazing art based on our animals and raised money to adopt our endangered animal.
