Ready for the carnival…

Posted in General News | 5 Comments »

We have made Brazilian carnival masks throughout the week. We used lots of different materials to make our masks special. They look wonderful! We also tried to samba dance!

Here are a few pictures of the boys and girls in Class Five having fun in their masks!


What did you use to make your masks special? I think we are ready for a carnival…



Oi Brazil!

Katie Morag sent Class Five a parcel from Brazil!!! We were very excited! She had seen we were writing our own stories about ‘Katie Morag and the Grand Carnival’. Katie sent us some pencils from Brazil- we loved writing our stories with them. We know that Katie has read our blog before. If you are reading this… Thank you very much Katie Morag!

Learning about the rainforest…

Oi Brazil!

This week we have been very, very creative in Class Five! We have been learning all about Brazil and the Rainforest. There are lots of animals that live in the rainforest. Can you name any?

We thought about our favourite rainforest animal and creatively block printed our wonderful designs onto pieces of material. Have you ever made a block print?

We drew the design on the polystyrene and pressed very hard to make deep marks!

We chose our paint colour and poured a little printing ink into an empty tray. Then we carefully put the printing ink thinly and evenly onto the ink roller.

Here is Alfie putting the ink onto his masterpiece!

Once we rolled on the paint, the last step was to stamp it onto the material pieces and press very hard! We gently removed the polystyrene to reveal our wonderful finished print!


Finally, we attached all our prints and tied them very carefully with ribbons to make a lovely wall hanging!




Enjoying our Class Five wall hanging! Do you like our wall hanging?

Show and Tell News…

Posted in General News | No Comments »

Hello! As from next week, we are planning to spend some time every day focusing much more precisely on the children’s reading skills. However to allow for this to happen something has to go and regrettably we are going to have to really reduce the amount of show and tell we do in class.

Each week one group will have chance to share their show and tell.

Week beginning:

21st Oct: My best day ever… Monkeys

4th Nov: Firework art… Elephants

11th Nov: My favourite book… Tigers

18th Nov: Maths fun!… Bears

25th Nov: All about me… Cheetahs

2nd Dec: My Role Model… Monkeys/Elephants

9th Dec: My favourite animal… Tigers/Bears

16th Dec…A special present… Cheetahs

BUT it’s not all bad news! Tonight all the children will be bringing home their own unique logins for the blog and we would really welcome any show and tell shared through this medium.

Happy blogging! Miss Garnett

Guess what!!!

Katie Morag is on holiday in Norway…We have been learning all about this country. We now know that Norway has beautiful views and is a very cold and snowy place. It has lovely colourful houses! Do you know anyone from Norway?

Class Five received an e-mail from Katie Morag (she has been reading our blog!) and we found out she loves to create seaside art when she is at home near the jetty.

We were thinking about Katie Morag and what we think she can see from her bedroom window. We painted our design on a large pebble found on the shore. Do you like our designs? We used bright colours and painted the pebble very carefully. They are really special to us.

We think Katie will love our designs! We are going to send some of our pebbles to Katie when we send Tiresome Ted back to the Isle of Struay.

Have a look at the box we have designed to send Tiresome Ted back to Katie safety. Do you like it?
