This month we learned all about Halloween traditions and creatures.  In Visual Arts we constructed our own bats to decorate our classroom in a spooky way.

During October it was Maths week.  We used our Maths eyes to count objects in our environment, look for patterns and shapes.  We went on a Maths trail.  In the hall we counted the length of the hall using our footsteps.

We were very busy getting ready for Halloween.  We made firework paintings using blow painting.

fireworksIn Science we have studied how plants grow and the conditions needed to grow seeds.  We planted cress seeds.  We made sure they got water and sun.  Look how they seeds have grown!

6th Class were very busy making clay bowls this week.  We brought in our own bowls and used them to model our own.  When they were dry we painted them.  It was great fun and we are so proud of our lovely finished bowls!
