It has been a fantastic two days back in Herons class. It was great to see the children coming back into school calm and ready to learn after what they described to be the best summer yet!
We have spent the past two days getting to know each other, both I and Mrs Philp have been pleased to see the Year 4's and the Year 5's becoming one class and working hard to support one another.
We have recapped on some Maths and English skills to refresh our memories after a lovely six weeks at home. Together, we built on our team building skills where we had to order ourselves in alphabetical order, by age and by height without talking. It was a joy to see children using their leadership skills and a variety of communication skills to reach the desired end outcome. Even if that did involve some whispering at times!
In Art this week, we looked at an artist called Patrick Heron. We used paint to reproduce his painting 'Azalea Garden'. This involved us mixing our own colours and using these to produce our own interpretations.
We cannot wait for next week and what exciting activities we might be getting up too!
