Spellings (due -)

There are no spellings this week due to the Christmas play rehearsals.

Children will be tested on their spellings every Tuesday. They will then receive a new set of spellings the following day. These will be sent home in spelling books and will be updated on the class page.

What have we been up to? 

Art (17-11-2023)

In Art this term, we have been looking at Japanese Art.

This week, we have been looking at 'Notan', a Japanese design idea which focuses on the amount of light and dark space within an artwork, and where these areas are placed in relation to one another. 

The word 'notan' literally means light-dark balance.
