Welcome to Russet Class

 

Our learning journey is

"Why is light important?"

This half term we will be finding out why light is important in a variety of contexts. We will find out who the 'Lady of the Lamp' was and why light was important for her; we will learn why light is important for different religious festivals, leading us nicely into our nativity 'Shine Star Shine'. We will also find out about different light sources, how to make simple circuits to make a bulb light up and how shadows made. 

Remembrance Day

We talked about Remembrance Day and why it was important. The children made a poppy badge each and wrote on the petals some key words or thoughts that they associated with Remembrance Day e.g. remember, brave and selfless. We walked to the war memorial in our village and stood with other members of the community for a two minute silence. 

 

 

Clay Workshop

Lizzie from Pot Doodles came to visit us to show us how to make candle holders out of clay. The children had to work the clay and roll it out; they had to cut out shapes to decorate their candle holders with; they had to make long sausage shapes to wrap around their candle holder template; and they had to paint their candle holders. The children had a great time doing this and worked really hard. We can't wait to see the finished results in a few weeks time! 

 

 

 

 

Australia Exhibition

To finish off our learning journey the children in Russet Class put on an Australia exhibition which all of our parents were invited to. The children worked in small groups, researching different aspects of Australia and Australian culture, and within their group came up with fun and creative ways to display their information. Our Australia Exhibition was a huge success, thoroughly enjoyed by the parents, but most importantly, by the children.
