  • Learning about dragons in Pine

    Published 09/03/18, by Clare Elson

    Pine class have been thinking about the dragon that was filmed flying over the school. We have written descriptions using noun phrases. Drama work has been fun as we explored why the dragon came to Roebuck Academy. We used freeze frame to discuss the motives and feelings of the dragon. Conscience Alley was used to give the dragon advice. We created maps to help the lost dragon find his way home. Next week we are looking forward to painting our clay dragons and creating a dragon world. This will be used for story telling and story writing.

  • Year 2 trip to Shuttleworth

    Published 07/02/18, by Clare Elson

    On Friday Year 2 had a wonderful learning experience at the Shuttleworth collection in Bedfordshire. We were given a guided tour in the morning of the museum and saw transport from a variety of periods of History. We found out how fires were put out and saw an old water pump. Cars and bikes were explored and we were fortunate to see some planes take off. After lunch we were completely surprised by Matthew the Education Officer as both classes were allowed to take a bus trip on a vintage bus. Mrs Chapman added to the excitement in Pine class by pointing out animals such as Kangaroos and singing 'Wheels on the bus'. Year 2 had a very fun time in the Jubilee Park and even the adults shared their talents on the monkey bars and the swings. It was a real pleasure to spend the day with Year 2 who showed exemplary behavior and respect to all adults. Many thanks to the volunteers who helped. In addition thank you to the volunteers at Shuttleworth who were so helpful and knowledgeable.

    Pine class have been working in the style of the artist Mattise. They happily collected leaves on a sunny autumn afternoon and had a thoughtful discussion on texture, shape, line and colour. We found lots of patterns when we looked closely. We then studied art work by Mattise and created our own pictures in his style. Pine class hope you enjoy looking at them.
