    Busy, busy, busy!! That would sum up the last couple of weeks here in Nightingale! We have filmed our Nativity and can't wait to share it with the children and families later this week. 

    Yesterday we got busy with data. The children were learning how to organise data into a branching database and how computers use this type of system. 

    We stared by sorting shapes and animals and thinking about the questions we could ask of the data. 

    Then we used the new ipads and a prigramme from j2e to create branching databases. 

    We also had a very great surprise, when during our lesson, Santa appeared outside and dropped off presents for all the children!

    We still have Christmas lunch to look forward to and our movie afternoon as well as watching the nativity and of course our end of term carol concert, so we are not finished yet but I would like to wish everyone a super Christmas holiday when it arrives!

    We have been working on our Puppet Pals movies this week. We have to use our Super Teamwork skills in this task, so Captain Sharer and The Listener have been around quite alot in Nightingale class. The movies are really making us think about the structure of stories and the importance of both plot and dialogue.

    We held a premier of our Traction Man films this week. We invited Potter class in to share some popcorn and watch our films. It was just like the Oscars!

    We will be sad to say goodbye to the superheroes next half term, but we keep them in our hearts!

    This half term we are learning about Italy. We will make pizzas later in the term and have our own take away pizza parlour.

    We have been enjoying doing some Yoga in the mornings. Here we are doing a sun pose. Starting the day with positive affirmations has been really lovely.

    We got some Farmvention certificates and rulers this week for taking part in the NFU STEM competition earlier in the year. Here we are with out certificates.

    We have taken inspriration from Roy Lichtenstein for our art this term and we are creating pop art inspired landscapes. We started by exploring the four different kinds of lines we could make and created outlines of a landscape at sunset. Next we used cotton buds to dot paint onto our paper in a pop art style. The children were restricted to using the primary colours and black to colour their paintings. Here are some of the results so far.
