Pop art and survival skills

We started the week with an introduction to our new literacy unit on Journalistic Writing and an exploration of angles in maths. Our swimming now starts our week on a Monday afternoon but some of us also enjoyed the opportunity to fit in a few more lengths with the early risers length swimming on Tuesday morning.

We revisited the use of apostrophes in our word and sentence level work and following the reminder hope to see more evidence of it in our everyday writing!

Wednesday was a great Art Day and we really enjoyed taking our Olympic theme and adapting it to 1960's Pop Art. Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein provided some great inspiration for photo manipulation and watercolour pieces so 'pop' in to take a look when you have a moment.

We spent a very damp Thursday afternoon learning survival skills. We learnt about Maslow's law of survival and then we all had a go at building our own fires. This proved quite tricky but with a combination of determination a great deal of cotton wool and a good technique using the 'dragon Sneeze' we had some success. Our hard work was rewarded with a lovely WARM mug of hot chocolate and some marshmallows.
