North Featherstone Junior And Infant School

Dream it. Believe it. Achieve it.

Welcome to Holly Class 

Superhero Day!

Children had an amazing time coming to school dressed as their favourite superhero! Some children decided to come into school dressed as a real-life superhero and they confidently shared their reasons for choosing that person. We enjoyed sharing superhero books and we designed our very own superhero masks!

 

PE

The focus this term is throwing and catching - inventing games. The children will be developing their throwing and catching skills using a range of equipment. They will make up games using throwing, catching and bouncing. Then they will teach the game to others and play it co-operatively and competitively. 

Our Special Visitor

The children were so happy and excited when Santa came to visit them.

They enjoyed talking to him and asking him lots of questions!

Art 

The children have learnt about the famous artist 'Andy Warhol' and evaluated some of his work. Then they looked at ideas for toys and produced a mood board. They have also learnt about complementary colours and made a print template and used Styrofoam and ink to print a repeated pattern. After they evaluated their own artwork. 

Geography

 The children have been finding out why the weather isn't the same everywhere in the world. Using maps, they have found out what the weather is like in different countries. 

History

During the topic 'Memory Box' the children have been learning about toys and how they have changed over time.

RE

We have been learning about celebrations. We have discussed what a celebration is, why we celebrate and talked about a celebration that is important to us. 

We worked in pairs to use the safe search engine (Kiddle) to research and then describe how and why a celebration is celebrated.
