We launched our new topic today, Rumble in the Jungle. We made our own jungle animals using our hands. It was lots of fun painting our hands and turning our prints into our favourite wild animals!

We had an amazing morning today when Bo, a musician, came to visit us and taught us how to play different rhythms using a range of 'junk' materials. We played music on dustbins, saucepans and broomsticks, to name but a few. We had a wonderful time. Maybe you could look around your house and garden for objects you could make music with.

Welcome back!


The children have all worked incredibly hard today as we launched our special book for World Book Day, called 'Old Hat'. We have retold the story and we have also been busy designing and making our own unique hats. I was blown away with the children's innovative ideas, so creative! Well done everyone!

 A portrait of Elmer.


Today's art challenge in Bramcote Class was to create a picture of Elmer using a range of different materials. We arranged the materials, took a photograph of them and put the materials back again. We think our pictures are great. What do you think?

Colour Walk


We made the most of the Winter sunshine today and went outside for a colour walk. We took colour charts with us and tried to find as many objects as we could which matched the colours on our card. We think we did really well. What do you think? The children were so excited to take their cards home and they all said they'd do some colour hunting in their homes and gardens!

We have read so many different Elmer stories [and we still have lots more to read too], so we thought we would make our own Elmer puppets so we could re tell our favourite stories. We all followed the instructions very carefully. The trickiest part was drawing around the Elmer shaped stencil.

This week in Bramcote Class we are reading the story 'Elmer in the Snow' and learning about Winter. We have been colour mixing, focusing on making different shades of blue and grey, 'cold colours'. We did a really good job and now we have created a different looking Elmer. Brrr!!!!!

The children in Bramcote Class have all settled back into routine so well this week. We have been busy with our new topic 'Elmer'. We have read some Elmer stories, written about Elmer and painted some amazing pictures of the patchwork elephant. Take a look...
