'Fun, Learning, Friendship'


We have been exploring our skills as artists both with continuous provision and with tasks based around exploring the art work by the artist Rosina Wachtmeister - she is an Austrian artist who specialises in art work based around very stylised cats. 

We have been using reclaimed materials to make objects. We used bottles to make a water wall and some of us used cardboard to make resources such as a roman soldier

Court Farm 

We had a fantastic visit to Court Farm- the sun was shining ,the animals were great and Farmer Ed and Sarah were great hosts. 

We met the animals on the farm: the farm cat, ponies, chickens and we loved the goats

Farmer Ed demonstrated milking a cow. we learnt that some cows can give 100 bottles a day!

Our favourite animals were the pigs Mel and Sam. They were fast asleep when we first saw them but we saved our apple cores and then we were their best friends!

We all grouped together to eat our packed lunches

Farmer Ed took us on a very bumpy tractor ride across a few fields and around the pond.

As it was so hot our teachers gave us some ice lollies. They were very welcomed and managed to cool us down after the heat of our day and the excitement of the exercise in the park.

On the way home some of us saw beautiful sights and some of us were just exhausted after the fun and excitement of the day! The staff at Court Farm said that we were a fantastically behaved class - Well done the children of Bishop Henderson school, you always do us proud!

Owl Class Mathematicians 

Mrs Tesoriere says she is super proud of us and what super mathematicians we have become!

We have been pirates but we had to be very careful because if we went off on a pirate adventure on of our fellow pirates would steal some of our treasure and we had to work out how much had been stolen!

We have made a bus stop and practised our number bonds when someone left- we even recoded number sentences to represent what was happening.

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Another traditional story we have been learning about is the 'Three Billy Goats Gruff'  We have read lots of different versions of it including The Troll be Julia Donaldson.  We have enjoyed joining in with the repetitive refrains in the story. 

we have been using our learning as engineers to build a new bridge for the troll.

Peace garden 

The children decided to make a peace garden for Speedy in our garden.  It is somewhere for him to be quiet and peaceful in. 

Sports Day 

We had a very successful sports day, thank you to all you parents that were able to come along to cheer us on.  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
