Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly,
Our topic for this half-term is called, Amazon Adventure and we have already done lots of work. We have started to read, The Explorer by Katherine Rundell and then produced lots of work inspired by our reading. The children have worked really hard and produced some excellent pieces of work, they have created their own animals capable of surviving in the rainforest and have written letters home as the main character, Fred from the text.
We studied the artist Henri Rousseau who painted pictures of the rainforest even though he’d never visited one! He emphasised the bright colours of the flowers and the animals that are both at the front of the image and hidden within. We experimented with water pencils and watercolours to create our own pictures and we are really proud of the end results.
Friendship, positivity and inspirational thinking
As part of last week’s worship theme, we have created a display full of information on friendship. We produced pictures, poems, letters, words and phrases that really sum up what it is to be a good friend. We discussed our actions and our words and how important it is to have good friends!
We have also looked at how the way we think can change things, particularly we looked at the importance of being positive and we thought about positive and inspirational quotes. Then we made our own inspirational quotes and displayed them around school. You can see some of our work below and to the right.
