The P5s are encouraging everyone to “switch off” their lights to join in with the campaign organised by the WWF to draw attention to our environment and the wild life that we share our world with.
They are asking everyone to switch off the lights and have an hour of alternative light. You could….
- have dinner by candlelight
- play cards by torchlight
- play a board game
- draw/ make something
- write a poem!
- the list is endless…..
Our planet is struggling because of OUR impact.
The Earth is our Home we need to love it and look after it, we can’t “buy” a new one!!!
Look out for some of the fantastic posters in and around the village.
As part of their Victorian topic P5 were learning how bread and butter were made. These foods were a big part of the Victorian diet. The poor would eat mainly bread and gruel. These were cheap and easy to make foods, that made you feel full. Only the rich or well off could afford to eat butter.
P6 have been busy this week creating emotional paintings. We have been discussing how art makes us feel and have been looking at the work of Van Gogh, Picasso and Jim Dine. We talked about the use of colour to create emotion and we listened to some different styles of music such as jazz, classical and popular music to see what emotions these evoked.
We are developing our knowledge of colour theory to help us express our own emotions in our painting. We have also been learning about how art can be used as therapy. The works we have created are all unique and reflect our emotions.
