Monday June 5th - 19th   Look at the art work we created in our Art fortnight.  We created a joint canvas with Pandora class and individual sculptures.  The theme was out of the world and other worldly.  We chose to think of plants and creatures that may live on a water world.  The art gallery on Friday was a great success and we all enjoyed talking about our art work.  Thank you to all those who came.

Visiting Southwick Country Park

 11 / 1 / 2017

We had great weather for our walk to Trowbridge Museum.  Metis class learnt about how toys have changed over time. The first activity taught Metis class that Victorian children liked to dress up and part of this was to wear a mask.  We look at serveral different one then made our own.  They will be on display in school very soon!  


In activity 2 we played Twelves, Marble run and bagatelle (a wooden board game) where we practiced our number skills while keeping score.


In activity 3 Metis class used their knowledge of adjectives to describe toys from long ago without seeing them.  Sassy was very good at this!  


Our final activity was finding out all about which toys were popular in Victorian times and comparing them with todays toys.  We were very lucky because we were able to give a very old teddy bear a cuddle!


Metis class were marvelous on our visit out and had great fun.Thank you Trowbridge Museum.
