Preparation for the Dragons Den Venture at the Christmas Fair!

We have been crafting hard to make a range of Christmas decorations to sell at the Christmas Fair.  Extra pieces have been designed for gifting to the visitors at the Cuffley Day Care Centre when we attend for their Carol Concert next week.  Every item was constructed with love and care and the activities certainly put us in the Christmas spirit.

We held productive debates today on a range of topics from bringing back National Service to paying people to recycle.  Persuasive language was used to gain support for points of view, along with active listening when others were speaking.  The groups were able to voice their ideas clearly and had identified evidence to support each case.

The voices of the future! 

Daily Mindfulness - Stop, Focus, Become Intentionally Present in the Moment

Musical improvisation using virtual pianos

We have been learning about the use of music throughout WW2 and how it aided the positive well-being of everyone, both at home and away.  Through studying the work of Vera Lynn and The Glenn Miller Band we have been able to understand the impact their music and presence had.

Currently we are developing our improvisation skills and considering how the beat and the rhythmic timings are essential to elevate mood and lower stress, vital during the war to lift the spirits of the country.

Guided Reading - Private Peaceful

We are enjoying reading Private Peaceful as our glass guided reading book.  The story of friendship and conflict supports our World Wars topic.

Black History Week

We have been celebrating Black culture and experiences, recognising the effects of racism and how to challenge negative stereotypes.

World Mental Health Week - Kandinsky Inspired Artwork

We studied the work of Kandinsky and how he used music and geometric shapes to inspire his abstract art.  Listening to alternative music styles, we created our individual responses and then pieced to them together to make collaborative pieces, which now brighten our classroom walls.
