Class 4

This term Class 4 have been learning about the ocean. To help us learn about the sea we set off to the Hastings to explore the area.  We had a terrific day which started with us learning about the important the work that the RNLI do at their lifeboat centre.  It was a beautiful, sunny day and we were lucky enough to be able to enjoy the weather and sit on the beach to have lunch before going to the highlight of the day, the Blue Reef Aquarium.  At the aquarium we saw a vast array of different fish and sea creatures but everyone enjoyed seeing the sharks the most.

After discovering many interesting facts at the aquarium about the sea and the creatures that live in it, we focussed on creating some fantastic pieces of art.  We created a range of artwork from paintings to clay models to fantastic wire and ModRoc sculptures. 

After creating so many pieces of fabulous art we decided that the only way to show off our fantastic work was to create an art gallery.  After lots of hard work the art gallery was ready for parents to come and visit.  It was lovely to see so many parents enjoying the art we had created and to add a bit of fun to the event we decided to have a sealed bids process to sell the amazing sculptures.  The sale of the artwork raised around £150 for future class projects and we would like to thank all the adults that supported the event.

It's been a fantastic start to the year; we can't wait to see what we will be learning about next!
