This week we have been looking at the natural process of growing older. We looked at photographs of special people in our lives when they were younger and as they are now. In our groups we discussed some of the similarities and some of the differences between the two pictures. Children then drew their own pictures of someone special to them and they discussed what they liked and respected about those people.
Last week we welcomed the Open the book team bac k into our school for our collective worship sessions. With the help of some year 2 pupils they retold the story of ‘the road to Damascus’
We have begun this half term’s topic of ‘changes’
We have been looking at the work of Welsh artist, Jeremy Thomas, and have produced our own work based on his theme, ‘The Human One’-As ‘Artist in Residence’ at St Mary’s Priory he has been working on a series of thirty oil paintings that illustrate the Life, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. We will post our work up here when it is finished for you to look at!
We have enjoyed using LegoWeDo to practice our programming skills!
What a fabulous end to half term celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee out on the playground. It was lovely for us to be able to come together after such a long time!

We all enjoyed a super educational visit to the small breeds farm in Kington today. Many thanks to all of the adults for making this trip such a success and a huge thanks to the children for being superb representatives of our school!
