The Gingerbread Man has run away! Help, where is he?

Help needed! Mrs. Williams baked some Gingerbread men at school. But when she got them out of the oven, one had run away. Where do you think it has gone?

Nursery children could draw a picture, Reception children could draw a picture and write a caption, Year 2 could write some sentences, Year 6 could write a crime story! Please send all ideas to the email below. (Mrs. Williams will let your teacher’s know for awarding house points!)

Where is he? I hope we find him! Send all ideas to sppsnursery@cathedralschoolstrust.org

A Starry Night – Year 1

Our art work this term has been based around ‘Starry Night’ by Vincent Van Gogh. We looked at the types of colour Van Gogh used and tried to mix these ourselves. We used a colour wheel to help us to think about this. We then explored creating texture, just like in Starry Night. These skills helped us to create our own version of the painting. Here are some of our final pieces. Thank you to Mrs Winkworth, Mrs Bendon and Miss Cook for their support!

Florence Nightingale’s Diary – Year 1

Year 1 have been learning a lot about Florence Nightingale. For this unit’s Big Write, we put ourselves in her shoes and wrote a diary entry from a day working in Scutari Hospital. Here we have pieces from Jazmine, Phoebe and Arietty, who worked particularly hard to think about all the learning we have done together and have shown great independence in completing this on their own.
