Summer Term Information
Welcome to Edith May class page
The children in Edith May class have had a very busy start to their year. They have been exploring colour mixing in readiness for a painting they will be completing as part of their art work this term.
We have been focusing on the text 'Wolves' by Emily Garrett. This has included written work and drama. We will be finding out facts about wolves to produce a leaflet.
Manipulating Circuits - 21st March 2018
This afternoon we worked with Edme class to explore and manipulate circuits. We thoroughly enjoyed working with one another and we found that we could learn a lot from one another.
Friday 3rd November
Edith May had their last swimming lesson at the Girls High School today. All of the children have made progress during their lessons, well done everyone.
The children enjoyed some challenges today. The photographs show the children holding on to empty plastic containers while they roll over in the water!
A huge thank you to Sarah and Gemma who have been helping the children develop their swimming skills each week.
Tuesday 17th October
We had a visit from Jo today who works for the Dogs Trust. We had a very practical maths lesson finding out just how much it costs to care for a dog for a year. We were using our addition stratergies to add together the total cost of food, vets visits, treats, bedding, leads, flea treatments, pert insurance and items such as dog toothpaste!
Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th August
This week we are spending our afternoons investigating maths through Art. We have explored the use of rectangles, triangles and squares in replicating the work of Mondrian. We have also looked at the work of Kandinsky. Before we could produce our own concentric circles we had to measure our paper and, using a ruler, divide it into 12 equally sized sections.
Below you can see the work we produced.
Friday 13th October
We have been mark making with water colours to discover effective ways of creating tree foliage in readiness for creating our painting in the style of John Constable. We progressed to painting a tree and then composing a small painting, featuring sky, grass and a tree.
Care was taken to use only small amounts of water. This ensured the colours were darker on the paper and the paper did not become water-logged.
Below you will find the finished practice pieces.
