Anglo Saxon Brooches

by Year 4

Year 4 have been making their own Anglo Saxon brooches out of clay, first we looked at some designs and decided on some patterns that we liked.  Lots of Anglo Saxon jewellery had repeated patterns and symmetry in them and we incorporated these into our own designs.  Once they dry out we will paint them and add some more pictures.

What do you think about them so far?

What does kindness mean to you?

by Mrs Armstrong

This half term our school value is Kindness.  We have had assemblies and P4C sessions all about Kindness and in Y4 we discussed different ideas with our Kagan teams to say what we thought kindness was.

We talked about the idea of Kindness as a metaphor discussing ideas like If Kindness was an animal, what animal do you think it would be?  and If Kindness was a colour, what colour would it be and why? 

We made posters to show our ideas and posted them on Twitter.   

Comment below to tell us your ideas about kindness.
