We enjoyed our annual Hansfield ETNS Sports Day fun on Friday. We each got a certificate for being excellent competitors and cheering on our friends. We even got a special treat of ice cream before we left the green! We finished the day with activities and games back at school after gobbling up our healthy lunches. We have a few pictures for you to enjoy below.
On Thursday we explored painting with salt.
It was lots of fun and an art technique that was new to us.
First we squeezed pva glue patterns on some card.
Next, we dunked the card in a tub of salt.
After that we shook off any additional salt.
We left our work to dry.
Later that afternoon we took out our watercolour paints.
We carefully dabbed droplets of watercolours on the salt.
We watched in surprise as the watercolours travelled up the salted lines!
Have a look at us hard at work!
First we kneaded the clay and flattened it.
Then we used plastic pots to cut round circles of clay.
Next we drew our flower shape in the clay using pencils.
Finally we pressed a selection of dried beans and beads into the clay.
Take a look at the final product!
We had a little clay left over so we made even more wonderful creations using our imaginations and our fine motor skills!
Thanks for stopping by 😉
We had such fun in school on Friday. The sun came out and we spent the morning exploring shadow and light outside. Take a peek at our pair work: we worked in twos, taking turns to trace one another’s shadows!
Later we enjoyed a treat provided by the PTA – Brickz 4 Kidz! We learned how to follow instructions and work together to build little Lego trains. When we were done, we pushed them around our room and made extra pieces using our imaginations.
Have a look at some of our great work below!
The boys and girls in room five have made some wonderful art to share the traditional Irish tale of the leprechaun and his pot of gold.
A leprechaun is small and green,
he hides where he cannot be seen.
But if you catch him on this day,
he must give his gold away!
We sponge painted rainbows using recycled goods from ‘Recreate’.
We cut and glued golden foil, paper pots and clouds to complete our colourful art work.
