Summer Term 2018
For the summer term, we shall be learning all about Africa. The children will be learning interesting facts about the continent and will immerse themselves in the story 'Fatou Fetch the water!" by Neil Griffiths.
Next the children will be involved in a Geometry and art project which will be about textiles and collage.
They will create their own puppets with costumes inspired by African patterns and colour.
We look forward to sharing our fabulous work on here soon.
Spring Term 2018
This term we have lots of exciting opportunities for the children. We will start off with a project on traditional tales where the children will be able to act out their own versions of Red Riding Hood from the point of view of the wolf. We can't wait for our trip to the Theatre Royal to see 'The enormous Turnip.'
In the second half term we will be following a project called 'Under the canopy.' In this project the children will be growing their own cress and creating experiments. They will be learning about plants and trees and visiting Longtimber woods. Children will also learn about food webs and have the opportunity to produce the information they have learnt in their own non fiction reports.
Well done to y1 and y2 who took part in an inter house Multi skill event yesterday. They all worked brilliantly in their teams and showed excellent sportsmanship.
All teams scored points into the thousands which was an amazing achievement.
The winning teams that will go on to compete against Shaugh Prior and Cornwood.
The children of The Erme Primary School have been involved in a two day Art programme where they have experienced creating natural art form interwoven with clay. The children were given time to research natural materials and then use this to create their own mythical creature in 3d form. The sculptures were also influenced by the artist Andy Goldsworthy. The children enjoyed using Victoria Park to inspire their creations and collect natural materials. We are so lucky to have such a fantastic outdoor space for the children right beside our school.
On the second day, the children designed their own patterns after investigating plants and animals from across the world. They then created their own tiles which they used to print on a range of fabrics and paper.
The quality of the work throughout the school showed amazing talent and commitment to such a brilliant project.
Parents were also able to come and see their child's work an art exhibition within each classroom.
The curriculum at The Erme is designed so that all curriculum subjects are linked within 'learning projects' which in turn enthuses children's writing and mathematical skills.
We were very impressed with the results and look forward to more days in the future like this.
