All Aboard!

As part of their topic on Vikings this term, Miss Magdzinski’s class decided to make a life-size Viking longboat! It was not an easy task, as you can tell from some of the pictures below, however , we got there in the end … with a little help from some mod-roc (and Mr Robinson!) It was great fun; we made the structure out of chicken wire, covered this with mod-roc, painted strips to portray a wooden-looking effect, and designed shields and dragons to ward-off enemies! The ship is now safely suspended from the ceiling of class J’s classroom. Would we make quite as good craftsmen as the Vikings … what do you think?!?!

A Wheatfield with Cypresses

Class F have been learning all about Van Gogh. We really enjoyed his painting of ‘A Wheatfield with Cypresses’ and particularly enjoyed how it represented how beautiful nature can be. We then worked in groups to recreate this picture using some natural materials as well as some man made materials. We hope you like the results!
