This half term we have been learning all about Space. We started off by finding out which planet we live on, planet Earth! We used Google Earth, found Harton Primary School and zoomed all the way out until we were in space. Look at our amazing Earth paintings. We included land and sea.
As part of our literacy topic, Year-6 have been studying Charles Dickens’ novel, A Christmas Carol. Last Wednesday, we took a trip to Middlesbrough Theatre to see it performed live. We had a really enjoyable day and the children’s exemplary behaviour was commented upon by several of the staff at the theatre. They were a credit to their families and their school and we’re very proud of them. Here are a couple of pictures below.
Reception have had so much fun learning with the Tiny Tweeties! We love singing everyday in school so it was so good to be part of their live workshop. Toffee Bear even came along to join in with us.
This half term Y6 have been developing their sketching skills and creating self portraits. We have worked on shading and blending and spent time drawing and practising our different facial features and expressions in our sketch books before creating our final self portrait.
This week Y3 were set a DT project linked to our Geography topic ‘The Rainforest’ We really enjoyed designing and then model making our own rainforests- we even included each different layer!
Take a look at our models!
Y3 enjoyed a trek through the rainforest virtually with Oliver using VR headsets! WE could not believe how realistic it was and what we actually came across! We found many animal species, plants and trees. We then moved onto looking at the effects of deforestation on rainforests around the globe – it was amazing!
Year 3 have been thoroughly enjoying our drumming music lessons with Mr Winter. We have learnt lots of different types of beats including base, tone, snap and a ghost note. We have worked extremely well in our drumming groups and together we have been able to put together a sequence of different beats. It sounds fabulous! Keep up the great work Year 3!
Since returning to school, Year 5 have been enjoying more Music lessons. We use a programme called ‘Charanga’, which asks the children to complete a range of activities centred around ‘pitch, tempo, rhythm and pulse’. They have been using Glockenspiels and reading sheet music.
In Y5F, a musician has been coming into school to teach them how to use ‘GarageBand’ effectively -music software on the Ipads- to compose their own tracks.
(Y5J had this tuition in Autumn term and Y5B will be next!)
Keep up the great work Year 5!
Wow look at the eggs our Nursery children completed for the school egg competition!
A huge well done!
