Be Active Week in Alps
Our sports week began by taking part in a Morda mile on the field. We had to make sure we kept up a good pace!
Street dance with Chloe Elizabeth
We joined in with some street dance led by Chloe Elizabeth dance company https://www.cedc.co.uk/
Here we are perfecting our dance moves!
Our final dance routine!
Some of our thoughts on our dance session with Chloe:
"That is the best thing I have ever done - I can't get over it!"
"I didn't think I would enjoy dancing, but I really did, I had the best time!"
"Please can we do that again? I loved it!"
Can you create a map of Morda? As part of our enhanced learning this half term, the children in Alps have been creating their own 3D maps making sure they label it clearly. Here is one the children have worked on as a group.
As part of our art this term, we have been studying the artist William Morris. We noticed his work had some repetitive patterns, so we decided to have a go at creating our own William Morris inspired wallpaper using the method of printing.
Into the Woods - camouflage
,We have been talking about animals that use camouflage to blend into their surroundings, to hide and avoid being eaten by predators. We also discussed the army wearing green camouflage or sandy coloured kit in the desert, so as not to be seen by the enemy.
This afternoon in the Forest School area we looked for ways to cover ourselves in camouflage and hide from others. We then played a big game of Hide and Seek.
Just as we were leaving a toad jumped out of the brown long grass to show us all how it is really done!
A walk around the village of Morda
In geography this half term, we will be comparing the village of Morda to the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. To start our learning, we went for a walk around Morda using a map to locate significant buildings and features in the village. We needed to follow the map carefully to make sure we didn't get lost! We saw on the map that there was a play park, so decided to stop off on our way back to school!
William Morris Art
As part of our topic about the Victorians, we have been looking at some of the work by the artist and designer William Morris. We noticed he uses flowers and nature in his work. Here we are doing some observational art of the trees in our school.
