Rainbow Fish

March 1, 2023

This is one of my favourite art projects of the year. It’s a long process but it’s fair to say that the boys produced a beautiful piece by the end. 

 

For this activity, the boys drew out their own fish, overlined it with marker and painted it with watercolours. They also prepared the background and learned to blend the colours to give an impression of the sea. 
They finished by adding some seaweed and some glitter to the scales. 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

March 1, 2023

Hopefully most of them were delivered successfully on February 14th!

We’ve been doing some gymnastics recently during PE time.

The boys made some great progress in a short few lessons! 

Kindness jar and Popcorn Party!

February 8, 2023

Over the past few weeks, the boys have been working towards a class goal with our “kindness jar”. 
We introduced this jar after Christmas as a reminder to the boys to be kind, considerate, inclusive and understanding towards each other.
The goal was to reach 20 marbles and I’m delighted to report that the boys reached their goal last week. 
They were thrilled with themselves! 

 

Their reward was to have a popcorn party with a movie and homework off that day. Today is the day! No homework for the boys tonight- well done to them!
