The key to friendship

We talked about the traits of a good friend. We came up with lots and lots of traits including being helpful, uplifting, inclusive, happy, thoughtful, friendly and kind. During our art lesson we all designed a key and wrote a special trait on our key.

Funky Self Portraits

It's hard to see in this photo but we used lots of different types of lines, shapes and patterns to make colourful backgrounds for our 'Funky Portraits'.

Birds of Colour

During our 'Birds of Colour' art lesson we explored colour mixing.

We were only allowed to use the three primary colours: red, blue and yellow.

We mixed red & yellow to make orange ; blue & yellow to make green and red & blue to make purple.

Orange, green and purple are secondary colours.

P.E.

For the month of September our theme was 'Games'. We played 'Rob the Nest', 'Noman's Land' and 'Basketball'. We focused on 'Basketball'.

We practised some of the key skills for basketball; chest passing, bounce passing, dribbling and shooting. We then, practised all of these skills together by playing a basketball match. We had so much fun practising these skills.
