Timetables and Curriculum for Anaconda Class
As we are learning all about Autumn in Anaconda class, we made some Autumn tree paintings using different techniques to paint with. We used different Autumn colours to make out trees and had great fun whilst doing so!
As a class we went into the local area to find objects linked to Autumn. We had a check list and had to find things such as ; orange, yellow and brown leaves, berries, conkers and fungi. The children found lots of objects and had great fun whilst doing so!
History: Anaconda Class have been learning about World War 1. The children have been learning about the causes of the war, Remembrance Day and Edith Cavell. Edith Cavell was an English nurse who risked her life to save soldiers from both sides of the war. We visited 'Tommy' at Seaham, The Museum of Hartlepool to explore the poppy display and the Cenotaph at the Headland.
