International day: Rowan class learnt about Turkey

Firstly we had a story read by a parent in Turkish and their child in English.  Then the student taught us a game.  Next we made flags or did some colouring relating to Turkey.  After that, we were lucky to be taught some Turkish belly dancing (which some of us enjoyed and others of us not so much).  Finally,  we made Hamsa hands, which included the evil eye for protection.

Beegu and sports

This week, we have been looking at the story Beegu. We became comic book authors and learned all about speech bubbles. Some of us made some Beegu models and we painted pictures of Beegu. Later on in the week, we were invited to a ‘mini-Olympics’ at Hemel Hempstead leisure centre. The children were amazing and we came in 5th place out of 11 schools! Well done, Acorns!

Displays to end the year

With such wonderful art work completed by our children throughout the year we have a new ‘artists of the year’ gallery displayed  for visitors to view.

Displaying a selection of art works from all year groups, you will see Roman mosaics, tributes to the Battle of Britain, dragon eyes and more.

Do come and take a look and admire the children’s work.

Also we are so pleased to share some of the amazing pictures taken by our school photographer in our ‘little mermaid’ display. Be sure to take a look at these too!

Happy summer holidays everyone! 🙂
