This is the start of the new school year, and Year 1 have settled in extremely well into their new classroom. The children have really enjoyed the different activities, and have been working really hard to complete the special daily challenges. The children have been displaying excellent behaviour, and are definitely ready to start their year in Year 1. This term, Year 1 will be focusing on stories by Julia Donaldson.
In Year 4 we have been studying the artwork of Pablo Picasso. We discussed the shapes and colours in his portraits and used these techniques to create our own self-portraits. We followed a step-by-step guide to draw our face. Then we used bright colours to colour our own artwork.
Year 2, it has been an absolute pleasure being your teachers this year! We don’t think we’ve ever worked with such a hard working and enthusiastic class! Thank you so much for your dedication to learning throughout the year.
Have a fantastic summer holiday and we look forward to seeing you all next year!
This is our final blog for this academic year. The year has been busy and seems to have gone in a flash. Apart from our daily activities we have been on several educational visits which have linked to our topics. Performed in a brilliant Nativity, taken part in the whole school sports day, celebrated The Queen’s 90th Birthday and visited Aston Parish Church, to mention just a few highlights!
We visited Wing Yip. The staff there were so kind to us and made us feel very welcome.
We slid down the slopes in a rubber ring at Tamworth Snowdome!
We met the animals at Ash end House Children’s Farm.
We were all amazing in the Nativity.
We all did our best at sports day at Windley Leisure Centre.
This will be my last day at at St Clement’s as I am taking early retirement. I would like to say a very sad goodbye to all the wonderful staff, parents and lovely children . It has been a joy to work in this amazing little school with a great big heart. I will miss you all but wish every single one of you all the very best for the future. Love from Mrs Shakespeare xxx
As this academic year is nearly over we have been thinking about what we have enjoyed doing in Year 1. We have been discussing what our favourite parts have been and what we would like to do as we move on to Year 2.
In Autumn term we went to Sutton Park. We fed the ducks and went hunting for sticks. It was so much fun but really hard work!
We observed changes in the seasons and as it became winter we started to explore cold places in our world. We made a penguin display and wrote poems about penguins.
In Spring our topic changed again and we learnt all about different animals. We went on a trip to Twycross Zoo. We touched lots of different animals including a hissing cockroach and a turtle. We saw some bigger animals too, including lots of different kinds of monkeys, giraffes, elephants and even a leopard.
We made sandwiches for a tea party with the Queen. The tea party was so much fun, it was a shame the Queen was too busy to come!
Our parents came in to help us discover all about volume and capacity.
We have really enjoyed doing art in Year 1. Especially, Gruffalo puppets, paper fish and carnival masks.
We were also lucky enough to be part of the Bookshare project. We received 10 free books throughout the year and we went to a special celebration at Heartlands Academy.
Mrs Webster and Mrs Ali hope you all have a lovely summer holidays and can’t wait to hear all about it in September.
As this week draws to a close Year 3 have been thinking about all the things we have enjoyed doing this year. They have discussed what they would like to do again, what they would like to change and what they would didn’t really like doing and why. They have also thought about what tips they would like to pass on to the new Green Class next year. We took this opportunity to look back over the multitude of photographs that have been taken. Here are some of our favourites.
Why not ask Green Class about them and their favourite memories?
