Posted by tmagpies | Posted in Blog Posts | Posted on 18-11-2016

We are learning all about the Great Fire of London. This week we have been finding out about Samuel Pepys and why he is well known. We have now had a go at diary writing as if we were Samuel Pepys. Well done Magpies, you did a great job of writing in the past tense and with lots of description. What great writing!

Today Magpies have been learning all about what Remembrance Day is and why we wear a poppy on the 11th day of the 11th month. We all made our own poppies and joined the rest of the Infants at 11 o’clock for a one minute silence to remember all those that have lost there lives in wars.

Today Butterflies found out why people wear poppies.

We made poppies, had a two minute silence and wrote sentences to help us to remember all the people that have died or been injured in the war.

Butterflies have been learning about Pablo Picasso and his unique art style.   We then had a go at making our own Picasso style portraits.

First we drew two self portraits.

Then we clipped them together.

After that we cut them into sections.

Finally we placed different sections from each portrait together, like a jigsaw.

We hope that you like the results…
