Art Workshop

Artist Peter Swidrack spent a day at Aveley Primary School and each class had a workshop session with him in the hall. He talked about his artwork and the paintings he has collected. We observed closely to complete a quiz about the works of art on display.
During the final part of the workshop we had a chance to be artistic. We used triangles to create our own animal collage. What fun we had sticking them together! We look forward to our work being on display for us and our families to view in the hall next week.

Materials. We are making clay pots.

For science this week we used clay to find about materials the can change shape when they are squashed, stretched, bent and squeezed. For our first lesson we rolled our balls of clay into a flat shape and then used tools to make marks on our clay. Next we are going to think about marks to use on our clay pots.

Our visit to see Fantastic Mr Fox

We have been looking forward to our theatre visit since November and have enjoyed reading Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl in class. Today we enjoyed the show, especially the songs, dances and colourful costumes. MR Fox was very funny and so was the mean rat who drank the cider in Bean’s cellar.
Sadly we could not take pictures during the show, but here are some of us on the coach and waiting to go into the theatre.

Fun with food

On Monday Darren visited Aveley Primary and did lots of running with us so we used up some of our energy. Following that he made us a healthy banana smoothie to replace the energy we had used. They were healthy and tasty.
