P5B Weekly Blog

In art we started doing some papier mache but we may have to abandon task! The original lesson needed clay, and our cupboard clay had gone. It was fun to do, but not as good as the clay. Still, the children did learn how to make and apply smooth effective papier mache! We will do it again when the clay comes in. C’est la vie!

We also decided to make some delicious cupcake pictures with pastels. Real pastels are so lovely to work with, and the children had a (messy) ball.

We were working on chrome books, laptops and pcs to try to find interesting ways to follow up our weekly reading book passages. Robert made a moving animation of Rudolf Nureyev flying through the air in a beautiful jetee in a field using our fabulous 2Simple programme.

Finally this week we were playing a clapping and rhythm game called, ‘Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.’ Ask your child how it’s played BUT you need a lot of people to play!
