Working in the style of Quentin Blake

Panda class have enjoyed learning about the illustrator Quentin Blake. We watched a video about his work and decided to try to work in his style.

First we explored water colours as they can be quite tricky to use! We enjoyed mixing our colours on the cartridge paper and creating different shades of the primary and secondary colours.

We then chose our favourite Quentin Blake illustration and tried to copy it. We gave each other kind feedback and helped our friends to improve their work. We made lots of drafts, each time making our drawing better.

Finally, we used our knowledge of water colours to ‘add colour’ to our designs. The finished pieces are displayed on our Quentin Blake  board in our classroom-come and look at them!!

Urgent Dragon Update

Year 3 and 4 have been working hard to inform the concerned residents of Siddal about the dragon invasion. The children used their news scripts to film reports warning the public to stay safe during this terrible time. DSC01046 DSC01055DSC01043 - Copy DSC01035 - Copy

Beware of the Dragon Invasion!!

The Rhino and Elephant class were shocked to find that the Year 3 classroom had been overturned by a dragon!

We returned from assembly this morning to find the classroom in disarray. Tables had been thrown over, dirt on the floor and a nest full of four gold and silver scaly dragon eggs were in the middle of the classroom.

We were shocked to witness a Sky news report, informing us of a dragon sighting in Siddal. We then received an email, from the mayor, instructing us on how to proceed with removing the eggs. We placed them in a safe location for the return of their parents.(We didn’t want to make the dragons angry!)

Rhinos and elephants were so shocked we decided it was our duty to inform other schools of this shocking news!

Therefore, we worked extremely hard to create scripts to make our own news reports. Do not panic!! We are recording our reports tomorrow and we will be emailing them across schools in Calderdale to warn them of this threat!

Be safe out there and keep an eye out for those pesky dragons!!!DSC01010DSC01007DSC01007DSC01011DSC01017DSC01015DSC01018DSC01019DSC01015DSC01024DSC01025DSC01022DSC01030DSC01020


Celebrating Roald Dahl day

We have had a brilliant day in Panda class today. We all dressed up as our favourite Roald Dahl character and looked fabulous!


We enjoyed a capacity focused Maths session, where we pretended to be George creating a new potion. We used our colour mixing skills and knowledge of full, half full and empty to create magic potions!

We have been learning about instructions in our English sessions, and decided to create our own magic potion using some strange ingredients! We used hen’s teeth, parrot feathers, bird seed and moon rocks to create some wacky potions. Then we used our knowledge of instructions to create our own.

Rhinos and elephants meet Roald Dahl

Rhino and Elephant class today delved into the wonderful world of Roald Dahl. The children worked across the two classes in pairs, to research the history of Mr. Dahl. They then used this information to create a timeline of his life. DSC00841 DSC00843 DSC00846
