Wensum Sings

Thursday afternoon and we gather on the field for Wensum Sings! This was the first time that we have been together as a school since March last year and it was wonderful. Each year team had been learning a couple of songs to perform to the school and also performed instrumental music with their Sistema tutors. The weather was beautiful and there was a great, almost festival-like atmosphere as we shared in music and song together. An impromptu rendition of ‘Three Lions’, led by Year 5 provided a special opportunity for a whole school sing along. Enjoy the gallery.

It was a lovely afternoon to go outside, we were very lucky and had enough adults to build with us, do some gardening and open the pond area.

Amy and Mark helped us to make different structures, swings and dens which we really enjoyed. Karen and Rianne did pond dipping with us and we found lots in there including newts, nymphs and snails.

Mark took a group to do some gardening and they got loads done outside in our flower beds and planters. We replanted somethings and planted out the seedlings we had grown in class.

As well as this we had fun climbing and digging we were lucky it wasn’t too hot or cold. We had a great time and can’t wait till next week.

Pegasus meets the art room.

Today we finally got to try out the art room, and we were very excited. At the minute we are making some amazingly bright freedom birds to go with our writing. As well as this we were creating some amazing African art work. This was quite hard as each box needed a diffrent pattern.

We used oil pastels on our African art work and tissue paper, paint and lots of glue for our birds. We are very happy with the results and hope you enjoy them.

Year 3 – Working as Artists – Week 1

We have been looking at the artist Julien Sinzogan, and how his art work links to memory, identity, travel and celebration. The country of Benin in Western Africa plays a significant role in Julien’s art work, looking at his own heritage, history and culture. Julien’s work has a large focus on travel, family, celebration of life and death and the Benin Slave Trade.

This week our focus has been ‘Family’. We have looked at what ‘family’ means, what different families look like, why families are different and that all families are different and that is ok.
We have linked this week’s art work to our understanding of ‘sense of self’ and ‘belonging’, as well as creating collage to portray our own family trees.
