Welcome to Squirrel Class
We are Squirrel Class and we are a mixture of Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Pre-School. Our Teachers are Mrs Fletcher and Mrs Denham. Mrs Keenan and Mrs Ord also work with us.
Our topic this term is Picture This and we are starting our topic by celebrating picture postcards from our summer holidays and days out. A whole school trip to Bowes Museum will be the starting point of our work on famous illustrators such as Quentin Blake. We will also be studying the work of Picasso and Giuseppe Arcimboldo. As we learn more about different artists and their styles we will be producing lots of art work which we will be displaying in our very own Squirrel class gallery. A second class trip to a workshop by the children’s author Helen Stephens will link in to our work on making storybooks. After half term we will learn about Australia through aboriginal art. We will be comparing the geographical similarities and differences to our country. The term will end with Christmas festivities, pantomime and the Christmas performance.
