Attendance Winners!

Crooklets had the best attendance of any class this term.  As their prize, they had the chance to make chocolate truffles with Mr Watson and Mrs Cook.  

As part of our 'Great Artists' topic, we have been learning about Hundertwasser.  Here are some pictures of us working on art in his style.  We look forward to sharing these with you when we have finished!

Art in the style of Hundertwasser


Adventure in DragonWood


Abi Elphinstone, author of our class book, Sky Song, always goes on adventures to inspire her to write.  Before writing our own stories (some of which are on our class writing showcase), we had our own adventures in the woods, building dens and toasting marshmallows on an open fire.   

Science - The Great Parachute Challenge


We learnt about gravity and air resistance by exploring parachutes.  We devised fair tests to investigate different variables, including: the string length, surface area of the parachute, parachute shape and the material used for the parachute.  We worked in groups, using our results to help us design parachutes to land an egg safely.  We made some mess but had a few successes and learnt alot.

Art inspired by Anthony Browne's 'Voices in the Park' October 2018


Puppet Making - February 2018

As part of our fairytales topic, we have been studying how to make puppets.  We have learnt about hand puppets, rod puppets and marionettes.  We have chosen the type of puppet we want to make, have designed them and are now in the process of making the puppets.

Making Pretzels

We have been researching German recipes as part of our topic.  We decided that we wanted to make pretzels.  We found the best recipe and then spent time making them.  We are going to sell them at our German Christmas Market.  Pretzels can be enjoyed with a dip of sweet Bavarian mustard - delicious!

Inspirational Journals

We have Inspirational Journals in Crooklets class as a different way of us having home learning.  Every week we add an entry to our journals on something that inspires or interests us.  This can be linked to things we do at home, with our families, at school or just something about which we want to find out more.


Have a look at a selection from our journals.

Sketching Kilkhampton

As part of our topic, 'Great Artists,' we sketched the views we could see from our village.  We learnt sketching techniques and then went to sketch where we could get views of the church and down to the sea.  We will be using the sketches to create our own landscapes inspired by Vincent Van Gogh

Hot and Cold pictures

In Crooklets class we have been learning about great artists and artworks.  We have been learning about related colours and used our knowledge to complete these 'hot and cold' designs using oil pastels.

Inspirational Journals

We have been keeping inspirational journals in Crooklets class as a different way of managing our home learning.  Each week we choose what we want to research or to tell our teacher.  We plan to add to the entries on this page so you can see some of our home learning.

Saxon Shields
Crooklets class are learning about the Anglo-Saxons this term.  They have learnt from where the Saxons, Jutes and Angles originated and have researched the differences between Anglo-Saxon and modern living.  The children also looked at Anglo-Saxon shields and then used them as inspiration to design their own shields.
