Steps from Kestrel Class:
Kestrel Class spent the day cooking for the soldiers in the trenches. They made an eggless sponge and trench stew. What a feast! The children wrote predictions stating what they thought the food would taste like and following the tasting session they wrote their conclusions.
They also looked at rationing towards the end of the war, what foods were easily available and foods which were moderately available.
What great fun Kestrel Class pupils had to produce a huge variety of pieces of art in the style of Andy Warhol.
Flower paintings by Kestrel Class in the style of Georgia O’Keeffe.
Kestrel Class studied the pots the Greeks made and then designed some of their own. They then made them using clay and the coil method.
Kestrel Class have been studying Groovy Greeks this term and have produced a variety of work across the curriculum related to this topic. Our audience was drawn together to witness one of Ancient Greece’s finest gifts to modern society – a great debate.
The children took part in a debate about sharing assemblies, showed work on the history of the Ancient Greeks, looked at where Greece can be located, handmade Greek pots were produced by the children and fantastic works of art which were produced following intensive research about the artist Georgia O’Keeffe.
Exploring in the pond on the school grounds looking for wildlife.
Following their exploring in the pond, pupils brought back a small amount of pond water to the classroom to examine. They tried to identify the different types of wildlife they had found.
