Please note: We will keep our windows open during the day for ventilation, so it may become a bit chilly at times. Please can I advise that children have layers e.g. vest under shirt and a jumper, to keep them more comfortable in the classroom as it becomes colder.

Ice Palace

Malone adapted a playground game to teach the children in the book 'Ice Palace' about the dangers of the character 'Starjik'.

During a skills builder challenge day, Malone brought in clothes they no longer wanted. The children then created a design to add onto their clothes.

Electricity: Malone have applied their knowledge of electrical circuits to create an alarm that can keep the Crown jewels safe.

Settling in

We have completed work around our school rules, creating a board game around the theme 'ready', 'respectful' and 'safe.'

We enjoyed looking through Kate Malone's artwork and then designing a pot inspired by nature. Afterwards, we made pots out of clay, using techniques to create coils and blend them together for support. 

As we are part of a team, we created a team flag with words that describe what we would like our team to show. For example, being supportive. We had a go at sewing these! Team Malone showed great perseverance when mistakes were made.
