Observational Art and Pablo the Piranha...

We have had another busy week in Bach Class and it has been lovely to see how the children have adapted so well to our new routine.  We have started a new unit in PE, which has got us all working on our fancy footwork and we have enjoyed linking our Art topic to the story of the Rainbow Fish.

The children have been able to independently follow instructions to draw their own Rainbow Fish and then they have then had the opportunity to draw Pablo the Piranha.  The children thought carefully about the shapes they could see, the different colours they wanted to use, the techniques they could try when shading and most importantly... they all remembered to include lots of sharp teeth!  We are working hard to ensure we always have the correct pencil grip, whether it is for our writing, number formation, or drawing;  we can already see a big difference... well done!

Earlier this week, we also discussed the Queen's funeral within our PSHCE lesson.  After a lovely class discussion, we thought it would be kind to write to King Charles (and his family) to let them know that we are thinking of them at this very sad time.

On Thursday, we all enjoyed a short animation called 'The Tiny Crusader'.  It really made us think about how each of the characters might be feeling and that it is important to never give up hope.  The children thoroughly enjoyed it and we thought they might want to share it with you at home - please see the related links.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend...
