MAF Adventure

We have been incredibly lucky today to have the Christian charity MAF visit our school. After learning about the fantastic work that the charity carries out, we then had the opportunity to see an actual aeroplane that they had brought into our playground! The children even got to sit in the pilot’s seat and learn about the different controls.

Hidden Messages

After studying the parable of The Lost Son, the children reflected on what this story means to Christians. They then constructed a box which was beautifully decorated on the outside but which carried the hidden meaning on the inside.

Remembrance Day

After watching a short, animated clip about World War I, the children created a poppy using a collage of tissue paper. They were very proud of the finished product.

A Mysterious Visitor

Today the children of Starfish Classed were faced with a bit of a mystery. During playtime the classroom was visited by a mysterious guest who left behind quite a mess! We found banana skins, a messy footprint and an open window. However, we have a plan to find the culprit – to disguise ourselves to try and and entice our guest back again. Fingers crossed that it works!

Bonfire Art

To continue our learning on Guy Fawkes Night, we created our own bonfire collages. The children had to think about the shape of the colours of the flames and how to construct the base. The end results look great!
