This afternoon we enjoyed rocket lollies on the field in our Golden Time. Nellie came to visit us too with her special puppy ice cream.
Today we had a special Jewish visitor in our RE lesson. Mrs Elijah came to talk to us all about her religion and their weekly celebration of Shabbat. She showed us lots of different objects that they use in Shabbat and explained the meaning of them. We had to look for the Star of David on all the objects. Mrs Elijah recited some Jewish prayers in the Hebrew language and explained what they meant in English. She also taught us some blessings, we lit candles and even got to taste some special challah bread too.
This week we have been practising our sewing skills and designing, making and evaluating our minibeast hand puppets.
We had a fantastic day competing in lots of different races and trying our best to earn points for our houses.
This week we have been looking at a piece of artwork called Snail by Henri Matisse. We then used his technique which he called 'painting with scissors' to create our own brightly coloured minibeasts.
We have finished our fantastic portholes by carefully drawing three animals that live on the Galapagos Islands. We used our knowledge of animals and their habitats to choose one that is found in the sky, one that is found on land and one that is found in the sea.
