Welcome to Rosehip Class.

On Wednesday 20th September we started to learn the djembe drums. 



On Monday 18th September Rosehip went to Tuppenny Barn for the day. They foraged for fruit and then cooked with what they picked; they pressed their own apple juice; and they learnt to identify different hedgerow plants.

The 'Merry Widows' into school on Thursday to be judges for their talent show. The children served a cake which some of them had made in the morning and tea and coffee. As you can see from the photos the children and the Merry Widows had a lovely afternoon.

Rosehip Class have been making musical instruments in DT this week. Their challenge was to make sure they could change the pitch and volume of the sound produced by their instrument. Lots of perseverance and engineering skill was required!

'This week some of Rosehip Class went on a trip to The Black Barn. They saw lots of art and sculptures made by two people called Andrew and Laura. The art was life size and the art had emotion to it.

Andrew's art was a bit different to Laura's because it had lots of holes and it was made out of margarine. Laura's was mostly made out of clay and hers was a bit strange because she grew up in a circus so lots of her art was from her imagination.

Their art took a lot of time and effort because not all of their art is small. They definitely took their time as some of their art took 6 months to a year to make.'

We began by making simple thumb pots which we manipulated and added appendages to! We used Scratch, Slip and Smooth to make sure clay which joined together, stayed together. We tried to make our gargoyles as menacing as possible.




Over the last few weeks, Rosehips have been developing their Sports Leadership skills. They have designed their own games and taught them to the rest of the class. They have worked on developing confidence giving clear instructions to others.
