Science Cafe 2018

We had a fantastic turnout of 31 parents for the Science Cafe this term. All enjoyed activities from light boxes, balloon rockets, space models, bug hotels and investigating poo! It was superb to share  with you all. Thank you for all your support.

Art - Wassily Kandinsky

The Otters have really enjoyed learning about the Abstract artist Wassily Kandinsky today.

They have mixed primary colours to make secondary colours with tints and shades and are creating their own Kandinsky inspired artwork!

Year 2 Computer Art

This term Year 2 have been improving their skills using Dazzle Paint Software to recreate art from different artists. We looked at Pointillism by Seurat, primary colours by Mondrian and cubism by Picasso and looking at how colour makes a painting 'warm' or 'cold'.  Using the software, the children learnt to use a range of tools and they could edit shapes and change shades of colour.

Trampoline Session at Hadleigh High School

The children in Otters were very excited to have the opportunity to go to Hadleigh HIgh School for a trampoline session.

The children had a brilliant afternoon bouncing!

KS1 really enjoy their Tuesday afternoon PE sessions with Mr Daniels.

Mr Daniels said "It's brilliant to come to Elmsett because the children have a decent amount of time for PE so they really learn a lot".

Here they are learning tag rugby:

Summer Term Topic - China

To start the topic, the Otters have been very busy designing and constructing their very own Great Wall of China!

Working together to make such a wonderful creation, they then measured it using centimetres and metres.

Carrying on with our topic of China, the Otters enjoyed a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. 

They all tasted the Shanghai Gunpowder tea and nearly everyone loved it. 

We were delighted to have a Chinese Dance Workshop - we did a fan dance and got to be part of a Chinese Dragon!

Look at the different slideshows below to see what we have been doing...

Busy Busy Bethlehem

Hedgehogs and Otters did a wonderful performance of Busy Busy Bethlehem for their Christmas production in 2017 - here are some pictures of our talented cast!

Sculpture!

Hedgehogs and Otters are learning about sculpture this term, looking at the work of Marc Quinn and how he uses a range of materials creatively to design and make products. Their first project was to make a sculpture out of bread dough - here are some pictures of the children in action:
