Wingham Primary School

Learning together, we grow kind hearts and healthy minds

Term 4

Maple class used Graham Turner as their inspiration to create their own bird’s eye view paintings of fields and a world war plane. They practised mixing colours and deciding which would look best for different fields. They also used different paint strokes to create different effects. They put these skills together to create brilliant pieces of art!

Maple class have produced lots of amazing writing, drama and ideas for our English work. They practised, recited and performed poetry to the class, thinking about actions and expression when performing They have also written their own poetry, written as an evacuee and created a persuasive advert about visiting Dover castle.

Our forest school expert, Miss Gibbons, has taken Maple class into the forest area ach week to learn new skills and practise how to be safe outside. They have used different materials to create art as well as using tools safely and roasting marshmallows over a fire!

What brilliant costumes! A brilliant day was had by all. We had a visit from author Anthony Browne who spoke about his inspirations and ideas and also gave a demonstration of how to create quick, simple but effective picture stories.

Maple class had an amazing day at Dover castle!
